GameSir X3 is a hybrid game controller/cooler for your Android phone
Our smartphones are getting more and more powerful every year. They are now capable of performing more intensive tasks, thanks to their upgraded processors and other internal components. This allows game developers to bring triple-A (AAA) titles to mobile platforms – instead of keeping them exclusive to computers and consoles. This is not to say that there are many cloud gaming services that require minimal on-device processing powers. There are plenty of controllers for Android phones that make playing the best mobile games even more enjoyable. However, the GameSir X3 controller comes with a twist – a built-in cooler.
Available for $100, this game controller actively cools your Android phone to ensure it doesn’t overheat. This lets you play for hours on end without having to worry about limited performance. The GameSir X3 somewhat resembles its predecessor, except that it has a cooling system attached to the back.
What’s great about the GameSir X3 is that it connects to your phone through its USB Type-C port, rather than wirelessly. This ensures that there is no input latency when playing games in real time. The cooling fan also includes an RGB lighting system – reminiscent of Razer’s Phone Cooler Chroma.
The GameSir X3 works with all Android games and cloud game services that support controllers. For added versatility, you can also swap out the buttons to change its overall layout. Unfortunately, the X3 has no battery. So, although it has a relatively compact size, you won’t be able to play on the go. You must depend on a wired electrical connection at all times to use it. As long as your phone is between 110mm and 179mm in length, runs Android 9 or later, and has a USB Type-C port, you’ll be able to use this $100 accessory.
