Best PS5 controller skins Android Central 2021

Phones aren't the only pieces of tech that benefit from protective covers. Though the PS5 DualSense controller doesn't necessarily need a skin, there are plenty of reasons to get one. Maybe you want to get a better grip on your controller, or maybe you don't want that pristine white case getting all dirty. Maybe you just want a different color. Whatever the reason, you can pick up a fairly cheap controller skin for your DualSense. While they're all pretty similar, here are some of the best PS5 controller skins to fit your style and budget.

Mmoptop Ps5 Skin Batman

Full set: Mmoptop PS5 Skin Full Set (Batman)

Protect your DualSense

When it comes to controller skins, what really differentiates them are their textured patterns and colors. Silicone is silicone, and you probably won't feel too much of a difference in that regard. You'll need to ask yourself what kind of grip you want and what you're buying it for. Do you want a cover that protects your DualSense from scratches, or are you mostly looking for something so that your hands don't slip from your controller after hours of use?

eXtremeRate makes excellent DualSense skins that cover the entire controller and offer scratch protection and a better grip. You can also find a textured pattern that you prefer in one of several different colors. Skins generally range from 10 to 20 bucks, so you won't be spending too much if you want to purchase one.
