Gaming on your iPhone is pretty sweet, especially if you have an iPhone 12 Pro Max with its large screen and speedy CPU. But the best way to game is to use a controller and that can get unwieldy. What you need is a gaming grip — and one that’ll keep your iPhone cool and bathed in RGB light, too.
What you need is the new GameSir F8 Pro. Maybe.
Available via Indiegogo and starting at $35, the F8 Pro seems to tick all the boxes you’d expect. It supports “instant refrigeration” thanks to a rear-mounted fan and the biaxial design should ensure your iPhone fits perfectly. The whole thing folds away when it isn’t being used and there’s a dynamic RGB light on the back because, well, I’m not really sure. But it looks cool. And that wasn’t a pun.
The GameSir F8 Pro Snowgon solves this problem whilst also providing a cosy handgrip. With its advanced semiconductor refrigeration technology, the F8 Pro Snowgon cools the smartphone down instantly once connected, ensuring peace of mind during long gaming sessions.
At the time of writing the project has a little less than a month to run and has a total of three backers, so it’s still early days. The controller sounds like it could be a winner, although it will have to go some to get onto our list of the best game controllers for iPhone. Still, if you’re in the market for a game grip, want one that’s cheap, and don’t mind a little wait, this could be a good option to check out.
