The very first advantage of this gaming controller is that it offers amazing compatibility across many platforms. The Game Controller can be used with Android tablets and TVs and other devices. However, the ones using Jio set-top box will enjoy it the most. Unfortunately, you won’t get Play Station or Xbox connectivity/compatibility with this one.
Coming to the battery life on this one, so the company claims that the Jio Game Controller has an 8-hour long battery life with support for haptic control. It also supports low latency gaming, which is a crucial aspect of an enhanced gaming experience for any user. Furthermore, the controller features two vibration feedback motors installed with two pressure-point triggers and an eight-direction arrow button.
Talking about the connectivity specs, it comes with features like Bluetooth v4.1 support, offering a wireless range of up to 10 metres. It also comes with two joysticks.
