GameSir G5 is the next generation gaming controller and the first gamepad that is designed for mobile MOBA games and First/Third-Person Shooting games. Merging several revolutionary inventions: trackpad, surrounding button layout, extra configurable buttons, GameSir G5 strikes the ordinary way to mobile gaming and brings out the brand-new control solution with your iOS/Android smartphone. If you are a mobile gamer who loves battling online, it is the ultimate secret weapon to win.
First of all, GameSir G5 is the world's first MOBAs and shooting gaming controller for smartphones. It has literally a different look from the other controllers. In design, we used cool and futurist concept with the black color scheme that looks great and fits in with the typical gamer aesthetic.
GameSir g5 has literally a different look from the other controllers. It has a cool and futurist design, but what makes the GameSir G5 so unique is the trackpad and the around button sets on the right side of the gamepad.
The trackpad is responsive and sensitive to track your finger’s input precisely. It allows you to tap, drag to cast a spell or move your camera around in shooting games.
The trackpad is also loaded with four raised dots to secure your blind control. It allows you to tap on the dots as pressing ABXY buttons.

Surrounding the trackpad are the buttons, with the new layout and design, the buttons are designated to simulate multi-function hotkeys work for different occasions.
First, they are MOBA friendly. If you are playing Arena of Valor, the upper buttons function as level-up spell hotkeys; the lower buttons become the summoner spell hotkeys.
Second, if you are playing Rules of Survival, those buttons are the supplier pick-up hotkey.
We’ve been testing lots of existing controllers in the market and realized that even Xbox One controller or PS4 controller, has the mushy and long-distance L1/R1, L2/R2 triggers. Long key travel triggers may cause finger fatigue when you use it for long periods of time.
Speak of the control, it also makes the response of commanding slower, which is worse for gaming, Instead of using the traditional linear moving triggers, we use mechanical triggers with a short key travel distance.
The 1mm distance of key travel gives you an effortless pressing experience yet still provides you a clear and clicky feedback.
To maximum the support for gaming, we added four extra customizable buttons. Dual shoulder L4/L5 triggers and dual L5/R5 rear buttons. It supports the custom assignment of any button function in accordance with the needs.

If you are an iOS user, you need to install "Happy Chick Emulator" app and play the selected popular game titles directly through the app. *This method does not require a jailbreak, and will neither hurt the game nor the phone.
If you are an Android user, then you need to install "GameSir World" app and use GameSir remapper A2 (a USB stick tool comes along with the controller) to remap your phone first before you play games.

The Opportunity and motivation about GameSir G5
So let's talk about our motivation to make this controller. As a leading gaming controller company, we saw a great boom in the gaming industry where online battle games took over the market rapidly in following years. Nowadays, MOBAs and FPSs have become two of the most popular choices across all smartphones. With the rapid growing market in mobile games, MOBAs and FPSs require more complex controls which are not friendly to all gamers. Realizing this issue, we kept investigating and figured out some of the most concerns for mobile MOBA gamers:
1. One of The Biggest Issues is The Control
Messy buttons on the touchscreen is a nightmare for most of the players. On the most occasion, it is somewhat unfriendly to control almost every command on a small screen with only two thumbs. It is even worst with FPSs when your right thumb is used to fire, jump, reload, pick-up equips and control the camera at the same time.
b. The Vision is Poor
It happens to everyone that your fingers often partially cover the screen and block your view when touching the on-screen buttons. For some other casual games, this isn’t a big deal, but in MOBAs and FPSs, it is frustrating because a poor vision can mean a death to you.
c. Hand Fatigue and Injury
Holding your smartphone and gaming are not ergonomic. Your thumbs are stressed and twisted all the time. The prolonged gaming session hurts your hands.
Therefore, with a commitment to bring gamers the best peripheral like always, we decided to invent the controller which ultimately solves the common issues brought from playing MOBA and FPS games with smartphones. With 2 years research and development, we are glad to show our pride gaming solution: GameSir G5, the next-gen gaming controller for mobile MOBAs and FPSs.
We are GameSir team. We have been researching and developing mobile gaming hardware since 2013, collaborating with over 30 game companies and publishers.
