Hi,

has someone managed to connect the Playstation 4 Controller with the Z2 ?
Is it possible and which games are supported?

Thanks

I'm eager to try this, my phone is on its way to its new home, so as soon as it arrives I will check it with my PS3 and PS4 controllers. PS3 controller works like a charm on the Xperia tablet with no additional drivers, it is plug n play!

As for the supported games, I'm thinking that maybe all or most of the games on the Playstation mobile store are compatible, other that than I don't know. Cheers.
LG G2X (rooted, retired)
Samsung Galaxy S2 (Unlocked and rooted, retired)
Sony Xperia Tablet (Stock rom, awesome device)
Sony Xperia Z2

I can confirm that they do work together.

All you need to do is hold the share and home (PS) button together until the lightbar on the pad starts to flash, once done you just need to pair it via Bluetooth.

Let me know if you need any further help.

So I connected my PS 4 controller with my Z2.
The setup was very easy.
But when I use it with games it's reaction is bad. So when I push a button it takes a while till something happens in the game.

Any ideas?

Thx!

I wrote today Sony Support about the input lag of the controller.
They replied that "The Playstation 4 Controller is not supported"

Awesome news !

Maybe someone fixed the input lag issue of you guys?

It's coming soon. I saw it in an ad somewhere (Xperia Z2 running a game with PS4 controller in the background).
If I've ever been of any assistance, just press the THANKS button

Z2 smartphone got already several firmware updates from Sony since the last post on this thread.
Did anyone try to connect the dualshock 4 to Z2 again? and see if it is working perfectly now?
