GameSir F8 Snowgon mobile cooling grip reviewed
This device was quickly taken from the office review desk and attached to the young(er) games in and around the site. They used it on a few low to mid budget phones. Our testers understood how to use it instantly and could see the value of it. Its load and play ability was good, the usability was mostly good. However on some games, if the game movement controls were in the lower left of the phone screen then sometimes the mobil gaming grip did not always mesh with the game buttons.
We debated if this was poor game design by the actual game designers, or perhaps that some of the phones we tried it on were too big for the grip OR if it was because of the limitations of the grip.
In this day and age, with so many phones, coming in some many sizes, and with a degree of size creep, as some models get bigger and bigger, this naturally presents a challenge for designers of a cool product like this. Naturally the aim is to make a clip on device that works with all shapes and sizes. It is also down to the variability of the many possible games that you could play.
Our testers felt that overall they liked this device, and that they were willing to accept that it was great on some games, pretty good on others, and only on some was it glitchy when they needed to reach the bottom left of the screen on their phones. For a crowd funded project they saw the value, and felt in relation to the price this was a good product, and well worth it in terms of potentially extending the longevity of the life of their phones.
A good product, and an interesting company to watch.
