Game streaming has been in the news a lot lately, Stadia is shutting down, and all the while Logitech is quickly bringing new handhelds to market. A ton of new Android controllers have been released, all offering Xbox branding (not to mention free months of cloud gaming) and demonstrating Xbox support, and one of the newest controllers to hit the market soon is the Gamevice Flex. . The problem is that the Flex looks a lot like the Razer Kishi V1. This is because Gamevice partnered with Razer when Kishi was released. Our partnership with Razer has ended. Inspired by Backbone With the launch of the Kishi V2, Gamevice was able to take the design of the Kishi V1 and fine-tune it. So let’s take a closer look at whether these tweaks are worth it.

Short answer, Gamevice did a great job addressing some of the issues with the Kishi V1. First and foremost, the Kishi V1 had a lot of trouble fitting into his 2022 larger phones, especially gaming phones. Perfect fit no matter what size your phone is or whether you’re wearing a case. And I tested this to make sure the thickest gaming phone in my house, the Redmagic 7S Pro, fits the case just fine, I can’t say that about the Kishi V1.

Of course, at first glance, the Gamevice Flex looks pretty much the same as the Razer Kishi V1, but beyond the extra room to accommodate a larger phone, there are also some small but noticeable changes. has a large Xbox button that acts as the default home button, with much more colorful face buttons to match the familiar Xbox layout. A USB-C charging port remains for passthrough, and there’s also a separate headphone jack that’s absent from the Kishi V1. The footprint is also slightly different, with a slightly larger grip on the back. One thing that hasn’t changed is the rubber dome button. It would have been nice to see Kailh switches included under the face buttons and directional pad, like the Kishi V2 and GameSir X2 Pro.

Stop looking too dirty.

After spending weeks testing Gamevice Flex, I can say that this is a quality controller that can easily compete with the top Android controllers on the market. Perhaps this isn’t too surprising as Gamevice has had a solid foundation from the start, but more competition is unlikely, especially given that Gamevice has provided a solid track record with iOS and Android controllers over the years. Definitely welcome. Admittedly, the design of the Flex might feel a little outdated at this point, but who cares if a controller works this well? But you can’t decide between Razer and GameSir, Gamevice is ready to go with Flex. $100 on October 25th Available for pre-order now.
