    Hi all, so I have been looking for a gamepad for my Lenovo A10-70 tablet and can't decide which to get. Really like the look of the Steelseries free, if only it had trigger buttons. One that keeps drawing my intererst is the Nyko Playpad. Seems to have had software issues at start but does anyone here currently use one and if so have they ironed them out? Needs to be portable.

    Personally, I'd go with a PS3/4 controller with sixaxis. I had a Moga pro before and though it was good, it doesn't feel as quality as a proper console controller.

    I has a look at that. Not keen on having to root to get wireless though. Also fancy something abit more portable.

    I'd also go for the DS3/Sixaxis, along with a Gameklip. Yeah, it's a bit pricey for what amounts to a bit of moulded plastic, but it's is durable and I've remounted it to who knows how many cases (3M VHB tape is fantastic), and comes with a not-awkwardly-long OSB-OTG to mini-USB cable that are hard to find elsewhere in the right length, if you don't want to go the wireless route.

    It's not so much the wireless thing that bothers me. I'm really wanting something as small as possible.

    Smallest thing as possible will likely be the Moga Pocket

    +1 for the Moga. Most games with support for gamepads will support the Moga controllers as they have effectively become 'the standard' on Android. And for £9.10 you can't go wrong.

    Have to say very impressed with the mad Catz controller so far. Not tried to many games with yet but works on main ones!

    Hardly needed given the ringing endorsements but moga +1 (after much hassle with an Xbox controller I had lying around and a usb to micro usb)
