Best controllers for Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra 2022

Mobile gaming continues to grow around the world, but even the best Android controllers aren't one size fits all. With new phones comes new requirements, and that's certainly the case with the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra. With dimensions of 77.9 x 163.3 x 8.9mm, it can be difficult finding a mobile controller that supports it. Sometimes even being just a millimeter off means a controller's useless. 

Luckily, there are several excellent choices on the market that fit the bill — and the Galaxy S22 Ultra — perfectly.

Choosing the right controller

Most of the best Android controllers support Bluetooth compatibility because that means they can usually fit more phones. Something like the Razer Kishi, for example, which uses a USB-C connection, doesn't fit the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra. 

When it comes to choosing the right controller for you, provided you know that it supports your phone, it's all about personal preference. A controller like the Gamesir X2 Bluetooth mimics the design of a Nintendo Switch, and while some people may prefer that, others will want a more traditional design. That's where a controller like the PowerA Moga XP5-X Plus comes in.

Keep in mind that the Galaxy S22 Ultra is still relatively new, so companies may be in the process of creating new controllers that are compatible with it. And if you already have a DualSense or Xbox controller and don't want to spend a ton of money, it's perfectly fine to just grab a separate controller clip that attaches to it. You don't always need to buy a $50 or even $100 mobile controller to get the best experience. 

With games like The Division Resurgence, Valorant Mobile, and more popular franchises on the horizon, now's definitely the time to invest in a mobile controller or phone clip. Just remember that not all games may feature controller support.
