I have previously reviewed the excellent Nacon MG-X mobile game controller, which is specifically designed to work best playing games on your phone with Xbox Game Pass
Nacon has now launched a Pro version of the controller.
Fundamentally, not much has changed. All the specification is identical, the battery life is the same, it still uses Bluetooth 4.2 for connectivity, and it is still designed for phones up to 6.7″.
The main, or only difference, is a different controller shape with a more ergonomic design that closely resembles a console controller.
While that may not seem like enough of a change to justify the Pro moniker, Nacon has kept the price sensible and only asked for €/£10 more than the standard model, which seems worth it for more comfortable gaming.
