Hmm, after skimming through all of these posts I’m surprised I haven’t heard any mention of the Phonejoy bluetooth game controller. It looks to be practically the same design & dimensions as the PS3 controller with the exception of the home button, the “flipped” charging port, & upper-top portion of the controller. It is also compatible with a wide range of non-rooted androids devices (Android 2.2 & up).

I actually just ordered a Phonejoy, after testing out the Gamestop tablet wireless bluetooth controller (works great but not much support behind it & its device support is a bit limited), a PS3 controller (wired), & a Wiimote (too few buttons & awkward handling w/ a nunchunk) with my non-rooted Samsung Galaxy S III.

After spending some time searching for Bluetooth game controllers & several possible mounting mechanisms for my phone for an awesome mobile gaming experience, I stumbled upon info. about this “GameKlip”, & it seems to possibly solve all of my problems. This is an excellent accessory, no doubt - but based upon the few photos that I've provided, do you think the GameKlip would fit a Phonjoy bluetooth game controller? If so, I'd definitely buy one?

I have it on rims, grille, badges, diffuser, cup holder, shift knob, console trim, etc!

So controllers have charged all night, still nothing. I think it's something i enabled or didn't enable on the phone that is holding me back. anyone got any ideas?

I don't have a scale avaliable at the moment, but if I remember right its about 45 grams with packaging. I'll get a better measurement soon!

Thank you! It all depends on how close the analog button is to the edge. It looks like it might though if all the other dimensions are pretty close! Unfortunately I don't have a phone joy to test to make sure

No problem! I see a lot of potential as this being an excellent accessory for the Phonejoy as well, as there is no rooting required to pair this controller with androids devices (Android 2.2 & up), & it’s only priced at $35 w/ the exception of shipping & possible discounts. With the Phonejoy & the PS3 controller being nearly identical in design, the GameKlip would only need a few minor tweaks to accommodate the Phonejoy, but overall it could possibly open the GameKlip to an even wider audience.

I figured the analog button may be positioned a bit too close to the edge of the controller for the GameKlip to fit properly & I was curious as to how the GameKlip would sit on top of the Phonejoy, being that there is a “switch” at the top of the controller near the LED lights. I have yet to actually receive the controller, but when I do I wouldn’t mind measuring a few of it’s proportions if you’re interested.

I also read about a few people’s concerns about battery life. I figured you could just buy an external usb battery pack & velcro it the back of the GameKlip, if needed. Problem solved, and they sell many of those on Amazon.

I would like to pre-order this as well but do you have to be rooted in order to use a controller with the S3? Is it only compatible with certain games, emulators, etc?

Also, are the ps3 controllers compatible with the Canadian Rogers S3? (saw someone mention earlier that the controller isn't compatible with some American variant of the S3)

Any possibility of adding a nexus 7 mount to my pre-order? Or can I cancel and order 2, one custom for the n7, and a s3 model to save on some shipping?

If you have a Verizon Galaxy S3, please take 5 minutes to file a complaint with the FCC regarding it's locked bootloader.
FCC Complaint Form Please cite 47 CFR Ch. I § 27.16 (b) as it is "limiting or restricting the ability of their customers to use the devices and applications of their choice on the licensee’s C Block network."

In the time it takes you to write a post complaining about the bootloader, you could actually do something about it.

International shipping should only be about $5-$7 for that weight, but you have to manually calculate and add postage...I've shipped ~4oz to Europe for that price
