Makeover sees it looking more like a console controller
PowerA announced their Android controller "Moga" last year already, but at CES 2013 this week, the manufacturer unveiled a new version of the Bluetooth-powered peripheral. The "Moga Pro," as this rendition is called, takes on a notably more controller-like appearance, designed to actually fit comfortably in human hands; not always the case, as its initial appearance was more like a malformed cube with buttons.
This version, as the obove image shows, resembles a cross between the Xbox 360 and PS3 controllers. The shape is more akin to the former, while the layout of the buttons and thumbsticks is more like the latter. In addition to the standard duo-sticks, four buttons, and D-pad, the Moga Pro also features two shoulder buttons with two triggers underneath.
The only potentially awkward issue someone might run into, we imagine, is the phone itself moving around too much while the player is holding the controller. Most people don't exactly hold the thing perfectly even while gaming. Otherwise, the stand where your device rests is supposed to be very secure, eliminating any fear of sudden detachment.

If you were concerned with portability I dont think you would bother getting a controller peripheral at all for your phone.
