    Definitely a good shout to be able to buy tue cases separately...

    Changing phone once a year these days I feel is excessive given the relative specs dont change much

    If you buy an RP1 or RP2 you definitely won't need to change that often as the phones are so powerful they will never lag for years.

    OK....after a day with this thing on a note 9...here are some impressions...

    It's big....and turn it off when Yer not using it. Battery life may be a gazillion hours...but it will continually turn Your phone screen on...and phone life is not a gazillion hours.

    It feels wonderful. The precision of the buttons. The clickiness.....the tactile feel...5 stars.

    Does it work with the game You're sick of controlling by touching the screen? Could be....but is possible that it might not. Exiled Kingdom works....Driving games suddenly have become a fuckin' joy....but Yer game may not.

    Why only cases for three phones? (and, Yes....I realize when snapped to the little brick it comes with it is a beautiful, compact, low latency controller...) Why? Why not a spreader model? When I get rid of this Note 9, I'm gonna' have to pay to get a 3D printed case for this. Bums me out the thought that went in to this lovely toy. I wonder who greenlit this thing.

    .....oh...and if You're in to emulators...where You can map the controls....this thing is stellar....provided You have one of the three fuckin' phones. :-/

    Final thoughts. If You think for one second You may be able to make this work with sumpin' other than the three phones cases it comes with....God bless You. I happen to have a Note 9....and my gaming life is pretty much cherry now. Is good.

    looks cool. What about people who want to play mobile how it was meant to be played (no controller). maybe just make some grips with a cooler for comfort and long gaming sessions.

    When I have this thing out...it is amazing how many people ask me about it.

    Christ. I don't know. I just don't have to play dungeon crawlers, GTA, or real driving games poorly....to the folks who want a more comfortable/acurate way to rub their fingers across the screen.....I have no idea what to tell You other than this ain't it.....but these joysticks on 70 hour games feel cool.

    I got mine today! =D

    It was crazy because it had said for days that it was expected next week, then I looked this morning and it had changed to "out for delivery", and below that "signature required"... Gah! So I rushed home and waited to ambush the fedex guy. I really needed to crap, but I held it until the darn truck finally showed up in the driveway an hour later. "Thank god!" I rushed out to sign and grab my prize. First time I've ever been in a bigger hurry than the person delivering a package, but I had something else I needed to deliver to the porcelain throne..

    So anyways, lucky for all of you I don't have any unboxing-from-the-toilet video, but that's definitely what happened, and then I played Asphalt 8 until both my legs fell asleep and I'd maybe still be sitting there now but eventually I needed to charge the phone.

    Great day guys, absolutely great day.

    I have a question. I have this with one-handed controller, with it work with Razer Junglecat? I also have my phone, Samsung S10+, as well. I have disabled, so it's hard to find one-handed controller. Thanks.

    Been using the JungleCat on some game streaming betas over the past few weeks. Right now hands down this controller matched up with XCloud is some serious Switch competition.
    Played Forza Horizon 4, Sea of Thieves, Sniper Elite 4, Ace Combat 4 and Gears 5 in the XCloud. All the games looked stunning on the RP2 and performed with absolutely no lag on my WiFi.

    They really need to release a sturdier case for this set. I just got my junglecat yesterday. Replace my 10 dollar clear cheap case with the junglecat case. The clear case is cheap but covers the front edges of the phone. Ive dropped my phone in the parking lot at least a dozen times with absolutely no damage to the phone. Today I dropped it and it cracked my clear glass screen protector and visibly dinged the top of the grill on the front of the phone. Very disappointed with this case. You have made better cases before for this very phone. How about putting the Junglecat mount on something like those.

    i am with you on this man - if they are going to release soemthing like this and charge so much, they should have made sure the case was good enought to be used as an everyday case otherwise whats the point man...

    ...nevertheless i use it as an every day case now anyway because if i didnt there wouldbe no point in buying this thing

    one more thing i noticed - even with the razer Gamepad app installed there is no way to tell how much battery is left on these things until they start flashing red or whatever - then its probably to late - or u are in a swamp somewhere with not usb!!

    I am using the battery levels to gauge recharge in the app user/account menu ~100hrs is a long time
    I have about 12-15hrs on the initial charge.
    Also, since the app update Friday, I haven't launched from the app due to app crash from trying to connect to Google play with the overlay option.

    Yeah there is a battery gauge for the controllers buried in there they just have a really piss-poor way to get to it that is not intuitive at all.

    I'm really excited about the update that just came to the gamepad app, being able to overlay and map inputs for unsupported games is fantastic, I had two unsupported games with really simple input that I was missing out on playing now I will get to play them with the Junglecat.

    I also have a pocket drone that you fly via phone app with simple thumb controls and I haven't tried it yet but I'm 99% sure this is going to enable me to fly my drone via the Junglecat, which is going to be sweeeeet!

    With the overlay ability I feel like I got my monies worth now for sure!

    this would be sick - so many games dont support pads at all - would this allow you to map buttons to places on screen? and look movement?

    Yep! You have to download an Octopus plugin and give it a BUNCH of permissions for it to be able to run over-top of your games, then you launch an unsupported game via gamepad with the option for using the overlay. There will be a tiny button on the edge of the screen you press to pop open and then you place touch-mapping points for buttons and joystick/wheels etc and line it all up, and then you play!

    Nobody has posted a youtube video yet and I really don't have time today so I'm sure someone will beat me to it, people are kinda not on the ball with this for some reason but betcha pretty soon it will be posted on youtube someone will demo it for ya.

    I only saw it right before bed last night, played truck simulator off-road 4 which has no controller support but I used the overlay plugin to map the steering wheel to the left stick and put A and X buttons for the gas and brake, and then I was playing! I really wish I had some free time to show it off on a short video but I'm just too busy/have too much going on this week. Would be a huge boost to my youtube channel to be one of the first to show it off but its just not gonna happen at this rate.
