GameSir g5 has literally a different look from the other controllers. It has a cool and futurist design. But what makes the GameSir G5 so unique is the trackpad and the around button sets on the right side of the gamepad.
The trackpad is responsive and sensitive to track your finger’s input precisely. It allows you to tap, drag to cast a spell or move your camera around in shooting games.
The trackpad is also loaded with four raised dots to secure your blind control. It allows you to tap on the dots as pressing ABXY buttons.
The 8-buttons Design:
Surrounding the trackpad are the buttons, with the new layout and design, the buttons are designated to simulate multi-function hotkeys work for different occasions.
First, they are MOBA friendly. If you are playing Arena of Valor, the upper buttons function as level-up spell hotkeys; the lower buttons become the summoner spell hotkeys.
Second, if you are playing Rules of Survival, those buttons are the supplier pick-up hotkey.
The Mechanical Triggers:
We’ve been testing lots of existing controllers in the market and realized that even Xbox One controller or PS4 controller, has the mushy and long-distance L1/R1, L2/R2 triggers. Long key travel triggers may cause finger fatigue when you use it for long periods of time.
Speak of the control, it also makes the response of commanding slower, which is worse for gaming, Instead of using the traditional linear moving triggers, we use mechanical triggers with a short key travel distance.
Extra Configurable Buttons:
To maximum the support for gaming, we added four extra customizable buttons. Dual shoulder L4/L5 triggers and dual L5/R5 rear buttons. It supports the custom assignment of any button function in accordance with the needs.
The gamepad is ergonomic. We researched over 200 gamers in a wide range of ages and develop the shape of the controller that maximumly fits most of the players’ hands. The Ergonomic grip secures players from the hand injury and gets rid of the hand fatigue of prolonged gaming session.
Supporting Bluetooth connection, GameSir G5 is compatible with Android devices (version 4.0 and above), iOS devices (version iOS 7.0 and above).
