A premium controller for mobile gaming, specifically on Android devices, is one of those peripherals that targets a very specific audience. Namely someone who enjoys playing traditional console-like titles on their smart-phones. The Razer Raiju Mobile, which continues the Raiju line of premium build quality and excellent components from buttons to analogue sticks certainly fits the bill.
But the bill, err, is pulling apart at the seams. On the account of the Razer Raiju Mobile being on the heavy side. Yeah, that was some controller fat-shaming.
Once you add a smartphone to the already heavy-for-a-controller Razer Raiju, you’re left with a Frankenstein’s monster that quickly becomes uncomfortable to use for an extended period. Being able to adjust the angle helps, but there’s no situation where the 300-plus grams of the Raiju Mobile paired with a gaming phone like the 200-plus grams of the Razer Phone 2 doesn’t feel, well, heavy. Also, the overall top-heavy design (once the phone is added) means you’ll need to hold the controller as opposed to resting it on a flat surface – which adds to the frustration.
