Moga Pocket – Bluetooth Game Controller

The Moga Pocket is a game controller for all android 2.3+ devices. It connects via blutooth so no hasle of wires. The controller is fun to use and a good accessory to turn your phone into a legit portable game device. It is useful and perfect for free time. On the other hand the button are very clicky and the game selection is not very large. The Moga Pivot app is not to user friendly and gives trouble when connecting to the controller. A good solution which allows the controller to control the interface and work with emulators/ non-Pivot apps is the Moga Universal Driver. The controller can be bought from Moga or Amazon. We would recommend upgrading to the more advance models for the addition D-Pad and Charge Capability(select models only).

The Moto G

The Moto G an average Quad-Core smartphone that is set apart from the rest by its exceptionally low price and quick software updates. The MotoG is already receiving the 4.4.3 update. It is slightly fat and but not too heavy. The 5-MP shooter at the back is fairly decent and good for on the go use. The front camera 1.3MP is only good for video calling. Excluding the camera this packs some powerful internals. The 1.2GHZ Snapdragon 400 is very good for gaming and basic functions. It is supported by an Adreno 305 but just 1GB ram. The battery, 2070mAP is able to last a full day. 720p displays are rare in phones of such a class but the MotoG has shocked us with it’s display. The screen is not the best but fairly decent. A loud speaker backed by some solid internals it is good for movies or e-book when on a budget.  The back cover can be replace for a small fee.  On the other hand the MotoG while a sturdy construction has wobbly buttons and the back cover easily dirtied. The back panel is very difficult to clean but it is just a minor set back. Calls are loud and cell reception is good but no 4G. When on such a low budget it is not really such a disadvantage. The MotoG has good benchmark scores. It has 8500 on Quadrant and about 17000 on Antutu and lastly 56.8fps on Nenamark. With the 8GB variant at $179 and the 16GB at $199 this is a solid phone with a solid price. Though the regular variant lacks 4G capabilities a water-proof, dust-proof variant of the phone is available here. This variant adds expandable storage and a white option.
