GameSir unveils X2s Type-C gaming controller for Android and iPhone 15


  • GameSir introduces the X2s Type-C gaming controller, compatible with Android devices and the iPhone 15, leveraging the new uniformity brought by Apple's switch to USB Type-C.
  • The X2s controller features Hall Effect sticks and triggers for precise control without stick drift, adjustable dead zones, and customizable ABXY layouts, aiming for a seamless transition from console gaming to mobile.
  • Available for purchase at $45.99/£49.99/€59.99, the X2s offers durable buttons rated for three million clicks, catering to both casual and hardcore gamers looking for a long-term mobile gaming solution.

Now that we are finally in a position where Apple iPhones have finally moved to a USB Type C charging and connection port and ditched Lightning ports it can start to get a little uniformity across the board with its Android cousins.

GameSir has built on its incredible success with controllers designed for mobile devices of late with this latest offering – the X2s, complete with that all-important Type C connection allowing compatibility with Android and now, newer iPhones.

The X2s features Hall Effect sticks and triggers which should remove any stick drift and time spent teaching yourself how your controller handles compared to your regular console controller. The dream is you can just pick up a GameSir, attach your phone and it feels just the same as playing on your main machine.

The dead zones on the sticks can all be adjusted and you can change the ABXY layouts to suit your preference. The buttons should have a durability rating of three million clicks (that’s about 10 minutes of me trying to play Street Fighter) meaning the X2S should be your mobile gaming partner for some time to come.
