Best PlayStation 4 Controller Phone Mounts Android Central 2019

PlayStation 4 is a beloved console because it has hundreds of excellent games, access to movies through Sony's PlayStation Store, and plenty of apps that let you get at the content you want to enjoy. What if you're not able to snag the television from your roomie, though? Well, if for whatever reason you can't play on that sweet big screen, you can utilize the popular PlayStation 4 Remote Play feature by taking advantage of a clip that mounts your phone onto your controller.

Reliable brand name: Nyko Smart Clip

Staff pick

Nyko's smart clip attaches easily to your phone without getting in the way of your lightbar, buttons, or the touchpad. It also avoids all of the ports on your DualShock 4 controller so that you can easily plug in to charge without any hassle.

Standard order: SUNKY 180-degree Android clip

Having a phone mount that is flexible and able to move is critical for gaming, and that is precisely what SUNKY delivers. The mount has 180-degrees of rotation which means you can set your phone to the perfect position for gaming.

Secure hold: Megadream 1st Gen.

While Megadream 2nd gen has been released, it seems to be having some fit issues. For now, we suggest sticking with the 1st gen. which holds up to 6-inch phones and offers a very snug and firm hold around the controller.

Extra rotation: Wireless phone clip holder mount

It has a flimsier feeling in your hand than some mounts, but it clips onto your controller well and is sturdy enough to hold your phone without any issues. It has 270-degrees of rotation; we aren't sure why you'd need 270-degrees, but it has it.

Completely separate: FiveEyes Gamepad Controller

If you're an iPhone owner and don't feel like having to deal with a clip constantly, you can always opt for a separate controller. All you have to do is grab, connect, and go! With 12 hours of battery life so you won't have to worry about a recharge.

Play on

You'll find that a lot of PS4 phone mounts tend to be similar in design and look nearly identical. The reason being: why reinvent the wheel? A simple, non-obtrusive clip is all you need. The difference tends to be in the material and amount of rotation you get from them. All of the above are quite reliable and won't break the bank. We especially like Nyko's Smart Clip, but you can't go wrong with any of these choices.

For any iPhone owners who are looking for something more than just a clip for a standard DualShock, the FiveEyes Gamepad Controller offers you an entirely separate controller with a built-in mount for your mobile experience. No more hassle. Unfortunately for Android fans, this one isn't compatible with their OS. We'll keep an eye out for a mobile gamepad that is.

Upgrade your wireless performance

Any of these items are perfect for improving your wireless experience. Extending the battery life on your controller, immerse yourself in a fantastic headset, and more!

PlayStation Gold Wireless ($71 at Amazon)

PlayStation Gold Wireless supports 7.1 surround sound, an internal noise-canceling microphone, and a transmitter (a plug connected to a USB port on your PlayStation that connects to the headset) or wired connection. The headset is light, comfortable, and adjustable to fit most head sizes, just the way you need it to for the best experience.

iMuto 1000mAh Portable Charger ($21 at Amazon)

Let's face it; sometimes we have to play our PlayStation's on mobile because we've been kicked out of the living room. With this portable charger, you can go anywhere and not just where an outlet is. The 1000mAh battery capacity is more than enough to charge your controller three times and the two USB outlets mean you can charge your phone and controller at the same time.

Who likes being spoiled while they game? This soft, plush, and squishy bean bag is the perfect choice when it comes to portable comfort.
