I own it. None of the Gear VR games I tried worked with it (Omega Agent, Dreadhalls, maybe some others).
If mobility is your concern, you're already going to be carrying around the headset itself, so console -style controllers are your best best in terms of ergonomics anyway.
> NOTE: Please do not propose other gamepads, especially if the form factor and ergonomics are the same as vanilla console gamepad as we know it.
I don't think you have a choice here. Check out the Moga Pro Power -- that worked very well for me.
This will likely get buried, but I bought a few controllers on Amazon and found this one to work great.

Needed basically zero set up. Paired it with my phone, changed the button mapping in the game app and boom worked perfectly. Joysticks and everything. Message me with any questions. I am using an LG G6 the Canadian model.
I'm still having trouble pairing mine (tried restarting/removing batteries now as well). it never shows up in the list in the Oculus app on my phone. Is this the one you have?
Here's the controller that I've been using for emulators and my gear vr: Amazon
Very similar to an Xbox controller and I haven't noticed any response time issues. Hope this helps!
Every Shield TV comes with a gamepad. I've also used a MOGA Pro Power controller over bluetooth. I think pretty much any bluetooth controller should work.
I have a DS4 and Steam controller that I could probably get up and running, too.
I use this MOGA and I really like it.
Has worked well in all the VR games I've tried so far, but I haven't tried Minecraft yet.
Considering Windows Phone 10 is not long for this world, you'll have to get used to Android or iOS eventually. That said...
You're on the right track. The problem with Android for emulation is not the screen or the power, but the controls. You'll find that touchscreen controls are unusable for anything but turn-based strategy games.
The GPD XD isn't a bad way to go for the price, but it's underpowered for high-end emulation.
How powerful a device you get depends on what you want to emulate, current "top end" emulators are for PS2 and Gamecube and they require a very beefy SoC (something like a Snapdragon 810), which means a very recent and expensive flagship phone like a Galaxy S7.
The fastest phone available is the Pixel, so the "best" solution is probably a Pixel and a MOGA Pro Power.
I know, see my replay above as I did buy from craigix. I even got an email from ED saying they were working it out not I figure you can't get blood from a turnip and I had about 1000 hours of forum reading and learning how such devices are made I don't feel totally cheated. Honestly if I still wanted that badly I would have complained more or paid for another. I wanted the Pandora to replace my GP2X, in the end I just bought a MOGA and a Linux Laptop which filled my needs.
I use a MOGA Pro in the Uk, it's awesome. It's readily available on Amazon in the UK, can you not buy from there? They do international shipping usually. It's the MOGA Pro Power.
The one I'm using isn't great, had it from my old android phone, it does ok but if I get a new one it might be this
There's tons of posts about controllers but it seems that the consensus is that an IPEGA or MOBA is the way to go.
I got this one (use it in "B" mode), and it works perfectly- Moga
I purchased the Moga Pro for use with the gear VR. I haven't actually used it in VR yet, but the controller feels pretty solid in general.
Can't really do much better than a Moga controller. I've used this for a long time and had great results, best thing is you don't need to do any rooting or anything fancy like the sixasis, and even comes witha clip to hold your phone:
Joystick Controller support seems pretty cool, seriously contemplating getting THIS Android Controller.
Also, it looks like VIP 4+ players now have unlimited 15-20% heals on character swaps instead of the one limit. I should be able to beat all the Ch. 8 Elite Missions now with the cheap tactic of stalling the bosses and switching to newly healed characters.
You also can't hold a console and play on the bus on the way to school or work.
If it's too hot for you try one of these [link]
*you wouldn't have to hold the phone while you game
*controllers are better than touch (but still worse than mouse)
*2200mAh battery to charge your phone as well (has saved my ass a few times)
This one even can charge your phone while you're using it

The way i plan on getting her PC streamed to her phone is by using this app. You'll have to install it on your phone and manage to somehow install it on your PC. If your on the same WiFi its fine.
I used it a few years ago when i went on a boat that was built in 1954 and wanted some entertainment was pretty experimental then. Looks better now.
And i Grabbed her this controller from amazon and will arrive tomorrow. [link]
BINGO! NES.emu, and the Moga Power Pro for the win. Best toy $ I've spent in the past year in terms of bang for the buck.
Just get something like a Moga Pro Power. Works great, and i always say, you get what you pay for.
The biggest two I can think of are the Moga Pro Power and the Moga Hero Power. Both of them connect... sometimes... in HID but their mappings are all over the place.
I was even more surprised that my ubuntu chroot had problems with them so there must be something fundamentally weird going on with the connection. The passthrough works since retroarch recognizes them, but none of the buttons register.
I also own a Steelseries Free and its support in ChromeOS isn't so hot either, although ubuntu recognizes it like a champ, analogs and all.
I forgot that I also tried my Logitech Gamepad F310 and neither Chrome nor ubuntu recognized it.
I use this, Very comfortable, Fast connection and havent had a game that hasnt worked perfectly with it.
I like the Moga Pro Power: [link]
Has a clamp (non-marking) for mounting your phone and also comes with a separate stand.
The fastest phone available is the Pixel, so the "best" solution is probably a Pixel and a MOGA Pro Power. Another good, though less portable, option is the NVIDIA Shield.
There's only one bluetooth controller on the Best Buy site, the Steel Series, and it's $50. No clip. I'm just not following your logic at all, and since you won't provide links to these insanely priced controllers, I'll post my own.
Moga Pro Power - $50
Moga Hero Power - $28
Ipega PG-9023 - center hold that can hold phone or tablet - $24
Ipega PG-9055 Red Spyder - great controller, small form factor and center hold - $28
Ipega PG-9033 - small form factor, moga power pro alternative - $22.50
Saitake STK-7003 - it's the PG-9023 with a Sony style d-pad - $30
Ipega PG-9037 - Xbox 360 style - $28
I don't get where you're coming from with these mysterious crazy priced controllers. These are all good pads, and only one is above $30. I've personally used the PG-9023 for a year and a half now, no issues. Also the PG-9025, another good controller for cheap.
MOGA Pro Power is what I have. There are cheaper ones. It's discussed a lot on this subreddit. Just search for other options.
> After using a shield portable I know I'd like an android tablet.
Don't get a tablet, get a smartphone. That way you can use this.
I got my fiance a Moga Power Pro. It works great.
I use Moga Pro Power with my Gear VR and my Mac.
Here are two reveiws that I made, I also recomend the Moga Pro Power or Hero. And the Hero is on sale right now with free prime shipping.

PS no controller is compatible with all games, at least until all games support controller input.
Very awesome Moga Pro Power
Love mine and use it all the time on trips or on the bus.
I've been using this Moga and love it [link]
I got this and have been really happy with it:
There are comments about some app you used to need for it but not true anymore, just pair and play.
Just been looking at controllers, is this the one you're on about?
This works great, and has a clip for phone to play non VR games too.

I use Moga Pro Power for all my emulation needs.
Looks like it's currently unavailable, but I don't know if that's temporary or not. I like it enough I would endorse their other products. They are about as solid as any 3rd party controllers I've used.
It's about the size of an xbox controller, and it's made for connecting to your phone or tablet; the buttons are all customizable/remappable either with a driver or in-game emulators, and it can connect to PC through a driver download to play Steam on. I used it on a 12 hr flight and it worked great for some old-school fun on my tablet
EDIT: think I'll stick with my moga for now; for the few arcade games like DMC that I play on PC, it works fine and it's great for my tablet on the porch
This probably your best bet. Moga pro power.
