The best phone mounts for playing PlayStation 4

phone-mount-hero-crop.jpg?itok=PPIUshRx

PlayStation 4 is a beloved console because it has 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? Well, if for whatever reason you can’t play on that sweet big screen, you can utilize the popular PlayStation 4 Remote Play feature by taking advantage of a clip that mounts your phone to your controller. We really like Nyko’s Smart Clip, but you can’t go wrong with any of these choices.

Extra rotation

Wireless phone clip holder mount

It is a bit flimsier feeling in your hand than some other mounts, but it still clips onto your controller well and is sturdy enough to hold your phone without any issues. It’s got 270-degrees of rotation available so it can easily be moved to where you want it.

Completely separate

FiveEyes Gamepad Controller

If you don’t feel like having to constantly attach and remove a clip you can always opt for a completely separate controller. With the FiveEyes controller all you have to do is grab, connect, and go! There are 12 hours of battery life so you won’t have to worry about constantly needing to recharge.

$60 at Amazon

You’ll find that a lot of PS4 phone mounts tends 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 — especially the Nyko Smart Clip.
