El Controlador del Año 2022 es...

El Controlador del Año 2022 es...

Es la temporada de vacaciones. Y ya sea para regalos, gratificaciones o simplemente porque quieres algo bonito, es un buen momento para aprovechar las rebajas y comprar un mando que fomente tu espíritu de jugador sagrado. Pero con tantas opciones, diseños y plataformas, ¿cuál es el adecuado para ti? Para responderte, hemos hecho esta guía de compra. Así, podrás saber cuál te conviene. Bienvenidos. Soy Claudio, y esto es 0to.Tech. Entonces, vamos a empezar.

Para la guía sólo hemos tenido en cuenta los mandos que hemos analizado en el canal. Las únicas excepciones son los mandos first-party de Sony, Nintendo y Microsoft que usamos como referencia y mucha gente conoce. Luego los hemos separado por las categorías que tienen más sentido a la hora de comprar uno. Algunos por tipo de mando, otros por plataforma. Y terminamos con el Mando del Año, donde los tuvimos en cuenta a todos. En su caso hicimos subcategorías para mostrar mejor las opciones, sobre todo cuando hay diferencias importantes de precio. También, si hay algún controlador que deberías evitar.

And without further ado let’s start with controllers for the iPhone. This year, supporting the iOS ecosystem is easier than ever, even with Apple's closed ecosystem. The compatibility with controllers from XBox, PlayStation, and, more recently, Switch has opened the door to more controllers without paying extra to Apple. Any controller that speaks these protocols works. And there are no artificial locks like Call of Duty and Apex Legends on Android. On iOS if the game supports a controller, it supports any that can be connected. Just remember that there are no Screen Mapping apps, Apple blocked them since iOS 14.

This year Razer brought the Kishi Version 2. While we expected a major improvement of features. Instead of improving on the original version, it's a clone of the Backbone One. That's doesn’t mean it's bad, but with the change to Switch type sticks it's not good for Shooters or games that require a lot of sensitivity. For $99, the Kishi V2 and Backbone One are premium options, with good DPads, and ergonomics. But for half the price my recommendation is still the original Kishi. It has the same features and better analog sticks. Just the DPad is not as good.

If you want a another option, also for $50, there's the Gamesir X2 for iPhone or the Bluetooth one. Their DPad use Microswitches and work better in Retro games. Now, if you want a cheaper option, under $20 bucks, we will see the BSP-D3 and D5 a lot, they are very good options and they work with on iPhone with no problems. Using Bluetooth they have more latency. But they costs half as much as the previous ones. Be careful of any controller that claims to be supported via ShootingV3, which most of the cheap Chinese ones are.

This application no longer works, and most manufacturers do not update the sales information. Now, if you want a traditional controller, or one for the iPad, check multi-Platform controllers’ section for the best ones. Since Android is the most popular platform in the world, the options are endless. Let's narrow down to telescopic controllers first. I think the best telescopic controller of the year was the MOGA XP7. Many of you might not like this decision because it’s huge, when most are looking for portability. But the quality is top notch, and it has the best sticks in this format. As additional options we have the original Razer Kishi.

Su nuevo precio de 50 dólares lo hace una excelente opción, sólo ten cuidado si tu teléfono es muy grande, como el Galaxy Note o Ultra, porque debe extenderse tanto que puede romperse. Otro es el Gamesir X2 Pro, que a $80 dólares es más caro. Pero es el primer Gamesir X2 que con gatillos analógicos y tiene mejor DPad. Otra ventaja es el Gamesir X2 Bluetooth, porque, a diferencia de los anteriores mandos que hemos mencionado, funciona de forma nativa con Call of Duty Mobile y APEX Legends. Y si tienes un teléfono que se calienta demasiado, como el Galaxy S22. Considera el Gamesir X3.

  Switch Pro Controller + Steam Input = ¡Impresionante!

With its cooler, it will give your phone a 30% boost in performance. It's not cheap, but it does solve an increasingly common problem. And the same. If you want something even cheaper. The BSP D3 and D5 are excellent choices, they not only work with all supported games, but also natively with Call of Duty and APEX. The only mentionable details of these 2 controllers are the lack of analog triggers. We tried other options like the SHAKS S5B, the iPega DualThorn, and the Saitake 7008, but skip those and go straight to the BSPs.

Now, some specific cases. If you play games that don't support controllers, you need a screen mapper. The Flydigi APEX 2 and APEX 3 were a big surprise. They are expensive, but their sticks are first class, super sensitive, and work amazingly well with their mapping application. You can even link the Gyroscope to the right stick. That makes them lethal on shooters. And let's make an honorable mention for the Mantis Pro App. It allows you to do the same with any controller.

Requiere más configuración que Flydigi para estar al mismo nivel. Pero es una herramienta imprescindible para cualquier gamer Android. Nunca pensé que 2022 nos traería tantos mandos para la Switch. Pero al ser tan popular, todo el mundo quiere un pequeño bocado. De 8BitDo, el SN30 Pro, el Pro+, el Pro-2 y el Ultimate Bluetooth son todos compatibles, y sorpresas como el Gulikit King Kong 2 Pro, y el Flydigi APEX 3 también. Y por supuesto, los BSP, especialmente el D5. Si añadimos el mando oficial a la mezcla, no es fácil elegir uno. Yo separaría las opciones así.

If you want a controller for Retro or 2D games, which are now common on the platform, the entire 8Bitdo SN30 series is the best. Its DPad and shape based on the Super Nintendo controller makes them perfect for these games, but they include the required sticks for modern games. And for $50 or less they're great value options. I would recommend the Flydigi APEX 3 if you want maximum customization. With the 4 additional buttons you can add Macros. And the sticks are better than the official ones. But consider it only if you are willing to pay its expensive price.

También está el 8BitDo Ultimate Bluetooth. Incluye un dock y 3 formas de conectarlo a la Switch. Tiene el mismo DPad premium, pero en una posición más actual. Y su mejor baza, los sticks Hall-Effect, mucho más sensibles que cualquier otro mando. El único problema es que, por 70 dólares, cuesta lo mismo que el Gulikit King Kong 2 Pro, que tiene los mismos sticks, pero mejor calibración. Tiene la forma del mando de Xbox, que a muchos les encanta, pero lo más importante es que es el único que puede leer Amiibos. El DPad no es tan bueno como el de 8BitDo.

But for the same $70 bucks it's also a great option. But none of these include HD vibration. Something that the official Pro Controller do. So if you want the complete feature set, the original is the safest choice. Right. We mean multi-platform controllers compatible with Android, Windows, and iOS. Any additional platform is welcome. And no, this does not include XBOX. Which wirelessly only supports official controllers.

With USB, there are more options like 8bitdos. And opens the possibility to adapters such as the Brook Wingman. Which we will test in the following weeks. So don't forget to subscribe. Let’s start now with the cheapest ones. Again, The BSP D3 and D5. Yes, they are telescopic controllers, but compatible with all platforms. The main 3, the PlayStation 3 or 4, and the Switch. Especially consider the D5 if you want a controller that includes gyro and vibration.

And yes, even if you look weird with a controller like that. They punch well above their price. We also have 8Bitdo options with the SN30 and Ultimate series. The latter one is confusing. The 2.4g version needs the dongle and is only compatible with Android and Windows, and the Bluetooth version is compatible with all the platforms in Switch mode, but removes support for analog triggers. So, my recommendation still is the trusty SN30 in its Pro2 version. It's not just great for Retro gaming.

Its sticks are first class and is compatible with the 3 main platforms and the Switch, and you can customize everything in its App. Including the 2 additional buttons. In addition, it connects via Bluetooth and USB. For $50 dollars it's hard to find competition. Although for 70 bucks if there is someone else to mention. The Gulikit King Kong 2 Pro. It is compatible with the same platforms and has additional features such as mapping the gyro to the right stick, macros directly on the controller, and on Android, is compatible.

With CoD and APEX natively. But most importantly, it has the best sticks we've tested in this channel. Yes, they are the same Hall-Effect as in the 8BitDo Ultimate, but the calibration is impressive, with less than 1% error in the rounding test. And if you want longer sticks or Xbox layout buttons, you can buy them as additional accessories. And I can also recommend the usual suspects, controllers that guarantee quality and compatibility with many platforms. The Xbox official controller and the Dualsense for PlayStation 5. They are easy to get almost everywhere, and usually for acceptable prices.

Even though they only speak 1 protocol, all platforms are supported. In Windows you can even use the additional features, including the trigger vibration on the Xbox, and the adaptive triggers and HD vibration of the DualSense. Safe options with great quality. What about the Xbox Elite 2 and the Flydigi APEX line. They belong to a separate category of Pro-level controllers. Not just for the price but for the quality and features included. And we start with, let's say less expensive, the APEX 2. For $96 dollar it includes options similar to the Elite 2.

With a case and additional sticks. But most importantly, additional features ranging from slider buttons to the best gyro-to-stick mapping we've ever tested. And with 6 face buttons, and 6 programable ones, it can do anything. Except accelerating and braking because their only issue is that the Triggers are Digital. But if you want accelerator and brake, then the APEX 3 might be a best choice. Its triggers are not only analog, but they are also adaptive like those on the DualSense. Too bad that only with fixed settings, or with some mods on PC. But for $120 dollars, it has less buttons than the APEX 2, and there is no reWASD support.

Its screen is just an ornament until someone decides to put DOOM on it. Finally, there's the most expensive controller we've tested. The Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2. typical Microsoft name. Elite 2 for the rest. A controller that oozes quality. It includes a case, interchangeable sticks and DPads, and 4 additional buttons that can be mapped on Xbox or Windows with reWASD. Although on the rest of the platforms it is only an Xbox controller.

There is now a cheaper version, but it does not include the accessories, and we have seen the complete one for 150 dollars in sales. The best controller for those who are willing to pay the price. And well, before checking the Control of the Year award, let's give some honorable mentions to innovation. Like the Mantis Pro app, which, on Android, allows you to map any controller to movements on the screen. Also to Flydigi mapping mode. Which seriously feels like native support.

And let's also mention its excellent Gyro to Right Stick mapping. First class and doesn’t the need for the game to support it. Let's not forget the sliding buttons on the APEX 2. And the front buttons of the APEX 3. With their special mechanical system, they combine the travel of membranes with the satisfying click of switches. And now are my favorites ones. Also, the 8BitDo Ultimate Wireless Docks. They make charging the controller very easy, and connect the 2.4 adapter at the same time.

Ideal for game stations. Let's also mention the M30, inspired by the SEGA Genesis controllers. It surprised us with how well it works for fighting games. 30 years later, the war between Super Nintendo and the Genesis DPads is still alive. The easiest way to get these controllers is by using the links in the description. They all point to Amazon or AliExpress, and most importantly, it won't cost you more, but you will help support the channel. Finally. The nominees for 2022 best controllers are: The BSP-D3.

A controller from an unknown brand. Absolutely generic. But that, with its compatibility and well-calibrated sticks, changed our perspective of what a cheap controller can do. And with its brother the D5, we hope will push players like iPega, Saitake and MOCUTE to improve their offer. The Gulikit King Kong 2 Pro. With its magnetic sticks, it renews faith in a technology we haven't seen since the Sega Dreamcast, that pushes the quality of the sticks to a new level.

They are so good that we are starting to see them in other brands and devices such as the Aya Neo. And if they keep their promise, they will bring the technology to the Switch Joycon Sticks. And the Sony DualSense, the official controller for the PlayStation 5. Which shows us that Sony is willing to work in other platforms by permitting the use of adaptive triggers and HD vibration in Windows games, and gives us hope that big companies sometimes do think more about their customers, and less about their pockets. And the winner is… you.

Because with so many options there is something for everyone. Jaja. Not at all, just kidding. The 0toTech controller of the year goes to… the King Kong 2 Pro. A surprise that such a new company has polished such a good controller in such a short time, and will hopefully standardize the magnetic sticks to finally end the war with Drift. If you want to know the full story behind the nominees, click on any of these videos. Don't forget to like and subscribe, and remember Retro Games, Modern Technology. 0toTech.

  1. Finally a good showcase of Flydigi's underrated gyroscope feature! Its very surprising that up until now, only Flydigi controllers has gyroscope function in their mapping..

    I have the flydigi wee 2t. Despite its ps-vita sized joystick, the accuracy is really good and is comparable to switch' joycon! And most importantly, the built in gyroscope function which really makes aiming 100x easier despite having small joysticks!

    Its just a bummer that the flydigi wee 2t's flex cable needs to be replaced every month or so.. but its one of the S Tier on my controller list!

  2. Wow what an awesome video man. Really well made and you really have a boatload of controllers hahaha. That King Kong really sounds great. I am satisfied with the normal Xbox Series controllers but the RB buttons break so easily. They are easy to fix by buying replacement parts but it is not a good thing. I might take a look at the King Kong. How do you like the rb and lb buttons?
