Mobile gaming takes a step forward with the $29 SteelSeries Stratus XL Bluetooth controller

One of the best wireless controllers for Android devices, SteelSeries' Stratus XL, is now on sale for its lowest price yet (opens in new tab) at Amazon — $28.95. It's regularly found selling for nearly $15 more on average.

This full-sized wireless gaming controller utilizes Bluetooth to connect to Android devices, but it's also compatible with Windows 7 and up, along with Samsung Gear VR (opens in new tab), HTC Vive (opens in new tab), and Oculus (opens in new tab).

Mobile games can be fun, but the small screen size doesn't allow for much precision at times. With this controller, you'll be able to have a more traditional gaming experience while playing games on your smartphone. It's also great for Steam games on your PC. The controller comes with two AA batteries (opens in new tab) which should keep you gaming for around 40 hours before needing to be replaced.

We recently shared our list of Best Controllers for Android in 2018 where the Stratus XL made its way to the acclaimed top spot without too much of a fight.
