Unboxing and Quick Review of IPEGA PG-9099 Wolverine Bluetooth Game Controller
Here’s a quick recap or review of IPEGA PG-9099 Wolverine Bluetooth game controller.
|Quality||The overall quality is not so bad, considering that it only costs as cheap as $27 USD. If you are lucky, you can get as low as $16 USD.|
Holding the controller will give you the premium feel – sturdy and rubbery.
|Weight and Sturdiness||Product weight: 0.3000 kg|
Product size: 12.00 x 8.00 x 2.00 cm / 4.72 x 3.15 x 0.79 inches
Having said, it feels heavier than the PG-9089 but as we’ve mentioned earlier, you can feel the sturdiness while squeezing it.
|Ergonomic||The PG-9089 has better grip if you asks us BUT the heating up of the right grip of PG-9099 is better than its predecessors.|
|Telescopic Holder/Phone holder||The PG-9099 now uses a metal material as extender.|
|Buttons||The buttons are clicky and responsive. Although, it was noticed that the buttons are not equally embossed.|
|DPAD||DPAD is now more responsive and accurate. And what’s more is you can switch between 2 types of DPAD.|
|R2/L2||Likeany PG-9099 predecessors, the R2/L2 is still not advisable for FPS or games which heavily depends on R2/L2, because it’s quite far to spam it. Although, the controller will be convenient for race type games.|
|Analog Joysticks||A little disappointment on this area though. Unlike with PG-9089, you might need to ALWAYS calibrate and play with the settings to make the joystick close to being accurate to use.|
|Vibration||For some gamer, vibration from the controller adds more excitement and more feel towards the game. For PG-9099, it seems a split millisecond delay and a little weak.|
|Performance||No LAG! And the controller can last up to 10hours with 2 hours charging time. Surely, your mobile phone will be dead first before your controller.|
