Way back in the fall of 2012, we were teased with the first whispers of Moga’s gaming controller for Android – the Moga Pocket. Right on schedule, it quietly released in 2013 to an awaiting audience hungry for a solution that would adhere to the stringent needs of most hardcore gamers. Now we’re seeing its successor in the Moga Hero Power, a revamped update that makes a considerable leap over its predecessor. With all of the dramatics in tow, will it be enough to fancy our inner most gaming desires?...

I have the Moga Pro Power. Excellent controller, it's a shameless ripoff of the XBox 360 controller, which isn't necessarily a bad thing.

I use a SlimPort adapter to connect my Nexus 5 to my 47" HDTV. Then I sit back with my Bluetooth Moga Pro Power and play Android games on the big screen. I'm currently playing GTA: San Andreas in HD.

Just one other thing in the long list of things you can't do with iOS.

any lag on slimport? I find mhl at worst up a second lag, at best, 1/4 second lag, still not good enough

With SlimPort, emulators in HID mode do lag by about half a second I'd say.

Games optimized by Moga though don't lag at all.

I have a Vita and therefore I think everyone should buy a Vita!(just so they would make more games), but these controllers are cool. I like both handheld dedicated units like the Vita and 3ds and smartphone games with these cool wireless controllers. I just happen to have one kind and not the other. All signs seem to point to the dedicated game systems dying out and everything being replaced with one ultimate thing that does it all.
