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. So, 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 in 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.

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. Then, 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.

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 bucks 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.
