It was a sad, sad day when I relinquished my Switch Lite. Having been a fan of the Gameboy and Atari Lynx in my misspent youth, I enjoyed getting hips deep into Mario (oo-er) on bus and train journeys. But, having bought an Xbox when the latest generation came out, I couldn’t justify the expense of running two prime consoles and the double game costs associated with it (I realise this is Games Freezer heresy as Britt has every console available, including TWO Magnavox Odysseys. Probably).

So I settled on only owning an Xbox, partly because it was new and shiny, and partly because the Game Pass is ludicrously good value. And in that time I have enjoyed playing big-screen games, while my on the move gaming has been limited to fairly simple, mobile-specific games. 

The pandemic lockdown has meant that a lot of people have spent a lot less time on public transport, but as things get closer to normality, we again need to place the gaming conch to our lips and summon the Gods of Mobile Gaming to bring joy to commutes once more.

Four paragraphs in and I finally introduce you to the Nacon MG-X. The subject of this review and something that is well worth the wait, I assure you. This piece of kit is a gem. I appreciate that developers have tried to improve touch controls for phone-based gaming, and you can use a standard Bluetooth controller, but touch doesn’t offer up enough precision and a separate controller requires a rig of some sort or for you to sit too far back from the phone screen.

So, what does the MG-X do? Well, it’s a lightweight, easy to use peripheral that fits firmly around your phone (it can handle up to 6.7 inches (oo-er again)) and once in place, it’s a little like having a Switch Lite or PS Vita in your hands. The difference is that the compact console now in your hands can play all of your Xbox Series X Game Pass library direct from your console or streamed from the cloud.

The 20-hour battery life is very good and it’s charged via USB-C (as most android phones are now). The MG-X is part of the ‘Designed for Xbox’ certified by Xbox, and the quality shows.

The ergonomics are great and the triggers have good resistance to them. Case in point: the first game I fired up was PES 2021 and I beat Barcelona, which I couldn’t have done without top-notch controls.

The limitations on gaming mostly relate to the screen size. Inevitably, some big-screen games will be affected by the move to more diminutive dimensions. The sticks are perhaps a little looser than official controller ones too, but it’s a minor gripe. No gripes with the grip though – I found the textured back made it comfortable to use.

It’s worth noting, though not linked to the device itself, a good data connection is needed to go fully mobile as Xbox gaming is streamed via something called the WORLD WIDE WEB. This isn’t an issue for actual mobile games though, of course. And some may baulk at the RRP of £89.99, but the price reflects the quality and the fact that it seamlessly moves your Xbox gaming from big screen to small screen.

The Nacon MG-X is compatible with Android and retails at £89.90
