With a 360 inspired controller, the Galaxy S4 is in position to bring controller precision to the flagship Android phone.
Samsung's Galaxy line of phones have emerged from a horde of indistinguishable Android phones and even the shadow of Google's own Motorola line to be one of the hottest products current in production. That status as an innovative must-have product has never been more clear than now in the time leading up to the release of the latest model the Galaxy S4.
Along with the full reveal of the phone ahead of its April 26 release date is a peripheral that has the potential to succeed where so many other add-ons have failed. That peripheral is a yet unnamed controller add-on, which connects via Bluetooth, and contains a retractable cradle for converting the phone into a serious portable gaming platform .
The controller is very much in the mold of the 360 controller and is expected in May. More importantly, the pocket sized controller will be compatible with 80 Android titles at launch and has also been demonstrated as working well when the phone is outputting to an external display.
