5. Game controllers


Samsung is ‘taking gaming seriously’ with the S7 and S7 edge. Detailing its partnership with games controllers on its news site, the company said:

‘As smartphones grow ever more integrated into our lives, people expect to be able to use their phones for a wider variety of activities and experiences, such as playing games. And, as the performance of mobile devices continues to improve, more and more users are able to do so like never before.

The Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge, however, take mobile gaming to an entirely new level. … Users can get the most out of these games with optional Game Pads such as the Micro C.T.R.L.r, a compact, Bluetooth-connected controller optimized for smartphones; S.U.R.F.r, which boasts true gamepad controls with features specific to the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge; and Gamevice Controller, which allows for undetectable latency in gameplay due to its direct connection.’
