GeForce NOW turns smartphones into powerful gaming machines that can broadcast PC games to any location. In addition, the greatest mobile gaming experiences are supported by recommended controllers, such as SteelSeries’ new Stratus+.
The Stratus+ controller is designed for use with Android and Chromebook devices, and it comes with an adjustable, slim-fit phone mount so you can game in comfort. It could be one of the greatest controller solutions for you if you frequently play GeForce NOW games on your mobile device because of its full-size layout and shape resemblance to an Xbox controller. But because SteelSeries now provides a detachable phone mount in the box.
It allows you to install your phone above the controller while keeping the screen close to your face. While using a controller that is similar in size to one that most gamers are already accustomed to.
In addition, the Stratus+ may be used with a PC via a USB-C to A connection. The built-in lithium-ion battery may last up to 90+ hours on a single charge, taking advantage of the Bluetooth LE technology.
The controller may run perfectly with GeForce NOW’s RTX 3080 subscription plans. In addition, users can tune their beloved PC games at 120 fps using certain 120Hz Android phones. Rival services like Xbox Cloud Gaming and Google Stadia are likely to work just as well with the controller.
The ALPS analog thumbsticks are engineered to provide you the most control, with clickable L3/R3 buttons for greater input possibilities in various games. In addition, new Hall Effect magnetic sensors provide a more natural trigger feel for long-term precision and smoothness.
While the Stratus+ has the same excellent features as the Stratus, such as ALPS thumbtacks and Hall Effect triggers, it also has a slender phone mount and a prolonged 90-hour battery life. In addition, with 2.4 GHz and Bluetooth connectivity, the Stratus Duo expands device compatibility.
