I have given this product a rating of 93/100
I think it is a cheaper and more cost-effective way for your child to play his or her favourite games without finding the money for an expensive games console and is definitely ideal for children aged between 7 and 15 to occupy them in various situations.
It is my job to help you find the good prices on for products in order to keep the kids happy and the parent’s bank balance happy!
I have researched various places to buy from and I have come up with.
For customers, in the U.S I have found that eBay is the cheapest although I cannot advise you on what seller to buy from.
the price range at eBay is from $40 to $80. You can see the listings here:
Whenever I am buying electrical products online I prefer to buy through Amazon fulfilment centres and not third parties.
This way you get the Amazon Customer service and logistical support.
The price is similar to eBay but they are sold by Game vice who make the gamepad and this model is actually sold through Amazon which means they will deliver it.
This model is priced at $79 and is sold on Amazon by the makers Game vice which you can buy here:
There are also cheaper models from $40 that are listed on Amazon and they are worth checking out: Check Them Out!!
UK and Europe Customers
This product is not actually produced this side of the pond and so you will still have to pay shipping fees, however, buy buying through Amazon UK those charges are a lot cheaper.
The going rate for this item is £81 which includes your custom/import fees plus shipping.
Benefits of the product
Specifications: 5.1 x 4 x 5.1 inches
When you purchase the gamepad controller it also comes with a free carry case to prolong the durability and safety of your latest gadget!
The Gamevice gamepad controller is a cool and very useful contraption that will bring tactile controls and a new experience to your iPhone, There are also Ipad variants as well!.
Gamepad controls feel good in the hands and will compare gracefully with a console controller experience.
The Gamevice Gamepad can enable you to have more control over your game character or team which can extend your game time during a game.
As I have mentioned beforehand, I think this gamepad is ideally suited to children between 7 and 14 years as I think this is the optimum gaming age range.
What I like about the Product
The product is very easy to install the app via your apple account giving you access to thousands of games and it also comes with a cool carry case making a nice addition to the packaging.
You will soon discover that the Gamepad controls are extremely more reactive than just relying on the controls on your phone with easier handling especially for younger children as the controls are slimmer and less bulky than a console gamepad.
If your child is after their first game console it may work out a lot cheaper buying the Gamevice Gamepad and also a lot easier for them to play games on while giving them a great gaming experience they can take anywhere with them if parents need some peace and quiet. (we all do sometimes don’t we!)
It’s also great on power and does not use any more than headphones that plug into the power source of the phone.
What I don’t like about the Product
The only drawback I can see with the Gamevice Gamepad is the fact that some phone cases that protect the phone need to be removed in order for the gamepad to fit.
I don’t think this is a major issue and one Gamevice cannot really do anything about considering there are many different types of phone case designs.
It would be virtually impossible to cater to all of them however there a few that will be compatible.
The instructions are also not as clear as they could be but there are many tutorials on Youtube if you get stuck.
My Final Thoughts
If you liked this review or have a question or opinion about this product then please do comment below and let me your thoughts.
In my opinion, this is a very good gadget that can certainly entertain a child or adult in that respect and certainly improve the gameplay on games played on mobile phones.
I would urge caution not to rush into buying from cheaper listings from third parties but all I can do is advise on prices.
My advice is to buy from the makers, Gamevice considering they are on Amazon and have the product already to go in Amazon Warehouses.
