What exactly will a smartphone gamepad give me?

The gamepad is designed on the prin­ci­ple of con­sole con­trollers, with a sim­i­lar but­ton lay­out and a spe­cial hold­er for a smart­phone. It allows you to eas­i­ly nav­i­gate in games and con­trol a char­ac­ter or object. In fact, you do not just get the oppor­tu­ni­ty to play on your smart­phone, but turn it into a gam­ing con­sole. Plus, if you have the abil­i­ty to dis­play the image from your smart­phone on a big screen, you will actu­al­ly get an addi­tion­al gam­ing device and will be able to per­form actions in the game twice as accu­rate­ly and faster than every­one else.

This is not all that a gamepad can allow you, because some mod­els are com­pat­i­ble with both smart­phones and com­put­er oper­at­ing sys­tems. There­fore, if you use emu­la­tors or just want to change the way you con­trol PC games, then a gamepad will come in handy.
