Default On external controllers

Hello everybody,

I like playing games on my phone a lot, yet i really don't like the touch screen controls, for lack of feedback and responsiveness, therefore i am in the market for an external controller.
I have simple requirements for it :

>Must use Bluetooth connection since my phone (OPPO find 5) does not support OTG

>Must be compatible with my windows 8 laptop
>Must be compatible with Android emulators like FPSe and NESoid emulators

>should have 2 analog sticks
>Should be easy to set up

What do you guys suggest?

Why don't you just use a PS3 controller in combination with sixaxis controller?
Odds are that you already have one, so you don't have to bother searching for one.
The only downside is that you cannot use the controller on your PS3 again, unless you restore the default bluetooth adress of the controller. So be sure to write it down somewhere before changing it.
