Quality/Usability : Trying to play games using the on-screen joysticks is not the same. It doesn't feel comfortable after awhile. So XCM has released a joystick that attaches to your devices screen via suction. This offers a real physical mini joystick while you pay your games and it won't damage your screen as well.
There are three different buttons. Concave which is similar to Xbox 360 controllers, convex which is similar to PS3 controllers and a D-pad for games that has directional movement. You're most likely going to be using the d-pad and the other button is your preference on whether or not you want to use concave or convex button. You might even want to use both and not the d-pad.
The design is sturdy. Once the joysticks are attached to the screen, it won't move or fall off. As mentioned before, it won't damage your screen either because there is not sticky residue or anything permanent. To apply, simply pause the game, place the joystick over the on-screen controls and push down so that the joystick suctions to the screen. Want to remove it? Just peel up the suction cup and lift the joystick up. That's it.
Here is a video of it in action:
Conclusion : Overall, the joystick is a must have if you play games a lot on your smartphone or tablet devices. Its easy to install and easy to remove. The price is also very affordable at under $6. Just to remember to remove the buttons when you're done playing or it will be in your way.
