The Razer Kishi is a telescopic gaming controller that works with most, if not all, modern smartphones. It connects through your phone’s USB Type-C port, thus ensuring a latency-free experience, unlike Bluetooth controllers. It has two clickable analog thumbsticks, an 8-way D-pad, two triggers (L2/R2), two bumpers (L1R1), and three function buttons. As we noted in our review, the controller is quite lightweight and solidly built, and the buttons provide nice tactile feedback. It also has the passthrough USB-Type C port, allowing you to charge your phone while gaming.
The Razer Kishi Android controller usually retails for $80, but thanks to this early Black Friday deal, you can get it for just $45, a whopping 44% discount from its normal price. Meanwhile, the Kishi controller for iPhone is seeing a 40% drop in its price and can be had for just $60. The controller + earphones and controller + Universal Grip Tape bundles are on sale too.
The Razer Kishi is compatible with all major cloud gaming services, including Xbox Cloud Gaming, Google Stadia, Nvidia GeForce Now, Steak Link, and Amazon Luna. While the controller works with many popular smartphones on the market, it may not fit some larger phones, so make sure to check the required dimensions before hitting that “Buy Now” button.
