Comfortable and easy to use

Felt comfortable in your hands. Pretty easy to use. Only downfall was it didnt fit properly because of the lense protector over the camera lenses, even with the adapter they provided for the iphone 13 pro max.

Great hardware! Bad developers.

I loved this controller, but it’s only really good if you’re primarily going to be streaming your PlayStation games. Most games don’t use the DualShock layout and don’t show the DualShock glyphs. Sucks because the design is so tight.

Great gaming peripheral

After a few months of debate, i finslly ponied up snd bought one of these Backbones. My intent was to use it for playing older games (currently the original Final Fantasy VII), so sll i wanted was a functionsl controller, not concerned with the media stuff it comes with. As a control, this thing is pretty sweet, makes games so much more enjoyable than ising the touch screen. The backbone feels sturdy snd responsibe, well worth $100 IMO. That said, 2 weeks after i got this i upgraded to sn iphone 15 so now i need the usb C version. I liked the control enough to where i will cough up another $100 to get another.

Not worth it.

The iPhone didn’t fit correctly even with the extra piece. The Backbone app is not worth it. Will be returning.

Gets the job done

The backbone is a great product if you like to game on the go. Simply pop in you phone and connect to your system and go from there. The only drawback is that it takes some getting used to playing with the controls just a bit different than the PS5 controller. Over time, it’s not as much of an issue.

ROG Ally Battery and Setup

The battery did not last more than 1hr off the charger. Everytime I would open a game i would have issues getting it to load it. I woudl get updates and downloads and never be able to use the Ally.

Good for portability and convenience.

The portability of the backbone is great. I can use it when I’m away from home. I don’t have to lay my phone on someone to hold it anymore. I Can just play like if it were a PSP or Switch.
