Gaming is becoming much more user-friendly for people of all ages. Subsequently, we are seeing developers designing titles for an array of ages and skill sets. However, there aren’t too many accessories that are focused on younger players. Therefore, it is refreshing when companies create peripherals designed for mini gaming enthusiasts. The GameSir T4 Mini controller is the latest pad aimed at this audience. It is smaller, lighter, but no less robust, well built, or stylish.

I have covered an array of wired controllers from PowerA. Most recently, I’ve looked at the Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands themed pad. Consequently, I was looking forward to seeing what the GameSir T4 Mini controller offered. Luckily, I was pleasantly surprised because of its Bluetooth connectivity, excellent battery life, stylish look, and multi-use functionality.

The GameSir T4 Mini controller is half the size of the official Xbox controller.
Oh, it is oh so mini!

What’s in the box of the GameSir T4 Mini controller?

  • The packaging provided is bright, colourful, and informative. It is made of a lightweight material that coped well in transit. The pad itself is nestled within a cardboard sleeve and it comes in a plastic bag for further protection.
  • The controller comes charged, but I’d recommend plugging it in before using it. The model I was provided was black with blue LEDs. Other varieties are available, so there is something for most tastes.
  • USB C charging and connectivity cable. This short cable is sturdy and has a rubberised exterior. It is suitable for charging from a mains charging point or the USB ports on a laptop, PC, or console.
  • User Manual. This small but handy guide talks you through the fundamentals in a clear and frank manner.

How does it compare?

Now, I’m a gamer with “normal” size hands. However, I didn’t find the GameSir T4 Mini controller to be uncomfortable to hold. Yet, it is much smaller than a standard Xbox pad. Furthermore, it is much lighter but still feels robust. The build quality is good and the LED light formation is pleasant to look at without being too distracting.

If you are an Xbox exclusive player, then you’ll have to look elsewhere, as this won’t work for that platform. Gamesir has focused on the Nintendo Switch, Android, iOS, and PC. The latter option relies on a wired connection, so you may find this a little restrictive. Yet, for the other formats, this works exceptionally well over Bluetooth connectivity.

Not just a standard controller.

Alongside the excellent multi-format options, you have some additional buttons to play with. Subsequently, it feels a little more advanced than your standard controller. Moreover, if you love taking screenshots to share on your socials, there is a button for that. Furthermore, you can increase the speed of your inputs with the handy turbo option. This is a fantastic addition that makes beat ’em ups and fighting games incredibly easy to play.

Extra buttons are always nice to have. However, it’s the basics that are important! Therefore, I was relieved when I discovered it was easy to connect to my phone, tablet, PC, or Nintendo Switch. The handy manual talks you through the basics and you’ll be up and playing in no time. On top of the easy setup, the LED lights highlight the state of the battery. With a quick glance, you can tell if you are running out of juice, and this was great. No longer will I be in the middle of a session only to lose all power.

So shiny.
Ohhhh it’s so shiny.

Is the GameSir T4 Mini controller worth it?

With very few alternatives on the market, it is hard not to recommend this stylish controller. It is a perfect size, weight, and design for younger players. Also, it is sturdy and can take a little light punishment from clumsy hands. On top of this, its affordable price won’t break the bank. It also has the advantage of its multi-format connectivity as well as the additional turbo and screenshot buttons. There are many positives to this controller, so I recommend you to buy it here!

Summary.

It is the perfect multi-platform controller that won’t break the bank. It has a nice array of LEDs, a great battery life, extra buttons, low latency, and is easy to connect. Furthermore, it is stylish, feels great in your hands, and is simple to operate. Subsequently, it is a great pad to have in your bag to play mobile games or to enhance your Nintendo Switch experience.
