Play anywhere with these great PS4 controller phone mounts for your phone

The PS4 and PS4 Pro are beloved consoles because they feature hundreds of excellent games, access to movies through Sony's PlayStation Store, and plenty of apps that let you get at the content you want to enjoy. What if you're not able to snag the television from your roomie, though? If you're unable to play on a sweet big screen for whatever reason, you can utilize the PS4 Remote Play feature by taking advantage of a clip that mounts your phone onto your controller. It's important to note that the best PS4 controller phone mounts on our list won't work with the PS5, so you should only buy them if you plan on using them with your PS4.

Secure hold

Megadream 1st Gen

Staff Pick

While Megadream 2nd gen has been released, it seems to be having some fit issues. For now, we suggest sticking with the first generation, which holds up to 6-inch phones and offers a very snug and firm hold around the controller.

Standard order

SUNKY 180-degree Android clip

Having a phone mount that is flexible and able to move is critical for gaming, and that is precisely what SUNKY delivers. The mount has 180 degrees of rotation, which means you can set your phone to the perfect position for gaming.

Extra rotation

Wireless phone clip holder mount

It has a flimsier feeling in your hand than some mounts, but it clips onto your controller well and is sturdy enough to hold your phone without any issues. It has 270 degrees of rotation. Although we aren't sure why you'd need 270 degrees, it has it.

$8 at Amazon

Completely separate

Rotor Riot Gamepad Controller

This one is a bit on the pricier side, but it might be worth it if you're an iPhone owner and don't feel like having to deal with a clip constantly, you can always opt for a separate controller. All you have to do is grab, connect, and go!

Premium option

Razer - Raiju Mobile – Gaming Controller for Android

Considering the price tag, this is only for the most hardcore mobile gamer, but it's certainly worth it. Razer is by far one of the best peripheral makers out there, and its Razer Raiju Mobile controller with the attached phone mount is outstanding.

Keep it cool

COOBILE Gaming Grip

It may be PUBG-branded, but you don't need to play PUBG to use it. This phone grip comes equipped with a charger and cooling fan for prolonged gaming sessions. It fits phones anywhere from 4 to 6.5 inches.

$15 at Amazon

Play on

You'll find that a lot of PS4 phone mounts tend to be similar in design and look nearly identical. The reason being: why reinvent the wheel? A simple, non-obtrusive clip is all you need. The difference tends to be in the material and amount of rotation you get from them. All of the above are quite reliable and won't break the bank. We especially like Megadream's 1st Gen phone mount, but there's plenty of choices here for everyone that'll work with all the best PS4 controllers.

For those looking to get really serious about how they play games on the phone, pricier options — like the Razer Raiju — do exist for the more hardcore mobile players, but are a more significant commitment than just throwing down $10 for a mount.

For any iPhone owners who are looking for something more than just a clip for a standard DualShock, the Rotor Riot Gamepad Controller offers you an entirely separate controller with a built-in mount for your mobile experience. No more hassle. Unfortunately for Android fans, this one isn't compatible with their OS. For that, you may want to look into the Sunky 180-degree Android clip, which will also allow you to rotate your phone as you play. In the meantime, we'll keep an eye out for a mobile gamepad that is.

6 things Apple stole from Android at WWDC— and one that Google should steal

Every year, Apple and Google trade ideas for their newest versions of iOS and Android, respectively. But this year, during Apple's WWDC 2021, it seems like Apple purloined more than a few ideas that Google's integrated into Android over the last few years. Millions of iOS users won't get their hands on iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 until later this year, so until then, we don't know until then how the new features will fare in the real world. For now, here's a tongue-in-cheek look at six features Apple, um, borrowed from Android with its latest software releases.

The Galaxy Watch 4 is coming soon — here's everything you need to know

Samsung's Galaxy-brain play: leaving Tizen behind for Wear OS. The Samsung Galaxy Watch 3, one of the best Android smartwatches , may have only just launched in November 2020, but the latest rumors out of South Korea suggest the company may already be developing its replacement — with some big changes and upgrades in the works meant to topple Apple from its smartwatch throne. There's no confirmation whether Samsung's 2021 smartwatch will be named the "Galaxy Watch 4" or adopt a new name entirely. However, we know that this new watch will run the new version of Wear OS, which would have a big impact on app support and Android phone connectivity. It could also feature a newer-faster chipset, which could put it leagues ahead of the best Wear OS watches . Details are fairly scarce so far, but we've scrounged up every known leak about specs, design leaks, and pricing, along with everything else we know so far about the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4.

Every armor set in Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart

Armor up Ratchet and Rivet before taking down their enemies. Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart features several armor sets that both Ratchet and Rivet can wear throughout the game, giving them damage buffs and other benefits. Each armor set is comprised of three pieces; the helmet, chest, and boots. Without all three pieces of a complete set, you won't get their collection bonus buffs. Thankfully, each map tells you exactly where to find the armor you need. It's then all about exploring the area and picking it up. You'll find most pieces within optional dimensional rifts that feature platforming puzzles of some kind, and there are eight total sets to be found. Here's every armor set in Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart and the buffs that they offer: Galactic Ranger Description: The classic helmet of the Solana Galactic Rangers. The Galactic Rangers' chest armor is forged with justice and Raritarium. The Galactic Rangers' pants protect the galaxy... and your legs
