GameSir G7 review (2023) a gaming controller for mobile devices

a great option for those who are looking for a new pad

GameSir is a global company based in China that makes gaming accessories and peripherals. It is best known for its wide range of mobile gaming controllers. The GameSir G7 Wired Controller for Xbox and PC is the company’s latest attempt to make a pro-grade controller that is affordable, and it may be the best one yet. During my time with the GameSir G7, we was impressed by how well it was made, how many features and additions it had, and how easy it was to use.

GameSir G7: Description

General complaints about the controls and ergonomics, as well as the fact that it has a wire that can be annoying, don’t take away from the fact that this is a great, cheap controller option for Xbox and Windows PC gamers. We haven’t heard much about GameSir in this part of the world. It is probably a big brand that is based in China and has been making a lot of gaming accessories, like keyboards, mice, mouse pads, grips, arcade fight sticks, and gamepads.

The company is finally trying to break into the Middle Eastern market, and they sent us their newest product, the GameSir G7 Wired Xbox controller, so we could check it out. It will be hard for the GameSir G7 to beat Microsoft’s Official Xbox Controller at what it does best. Since it costs almost the same as the OG, it can’t be called the “budget option,” and you can see why as soon as you open the box.

Design and Comfort

GameSir G7 review

At first glance, the GameSir G7 looks exactly like the standard Xbox Series S/X controller. If someone didn’t know what to look for, they wouldn’t be able to tell the difference. The only things that are different are how the start, select, and share buttons are laid out and how the D-pad is used. So, GameSir doesn’t try to reinvent the wheel in any way. This works to its advantage, though, because the controller doesn’t need much time to get used to. But if you look a little closer, you’ll start to see the small changes and improvements that GameSir has made to the controller.

One big difference is that the analog joysticks are not the same. Where the thumb would typically rest on the Series controller, there is a concave surface. The area of the Series controller where the thumb would typically rest is convex. The sticks on the Series controller are a little bit taller, and the grip around the outside is thicker. In fact, the joysticks look and feel almost exactly like the ones on the DualSense controller for the PlayStation 5.

If you usually play Xbox or have never used a DualSense controller before, you might need some time to get used to these small changes. we was surprised by how often we found myself reaching for the face buttons because of how high the joysticks were. The anti-friction glides around the edges of the circular enclosure are the best thing that has been added to the joysticks. It’s just a thin layer of smooth plastic that keeps the sticks from ‘grinding’ against the controller’s sharp edges.

GameSir G7: Features

GameSir G7 review

The GameSir G7 has a number of high-tech features. With a polling rate of 265Hz and an input latency of less than 0.00377s, the controller is designed to give you the best competitive edge possible. It responds quickly to what you say in human language.

One more thing is that it comes with software. The GameSir Nexus software lets gamers make controller profiles by mapping buttons, adjusting stick and trigger zones, setting vibration levels, and more. You can save up to three profiles, and depending on the game you want to play, you can use any of them when gaming starts. The software also lets gamers update the controller’s firmware, so it always has the latest features and fixes.

The GameSir G7 also comes with ALPS 3D joysticks, which let you control the games in all directions with ease and accuracy. The L3/R3 buttons, which you can click, are on the bottom of the controller and give you more ways to play. And if you want to use a headset while gaming, the controller has a built-in 3.5mm audio jack and a mic mute button right next to it. This is important for when online multiplayer gets too intense for PG language.

Controls and Performance

It doesn’t matter how comfortable a controller is to use if using it to play games is disappointing. With the GameSir G7 Wired Controller, things are good almost everywhere. we didn’t love or prefer everything about using this controller, but it’s clear that GameSir put a lot of thought into how to make it an interesting and high-quality accessory for players of all types and skill levels. We had no problems with the analog joystick buttons and movement controls, and the “anti-glide” rings did make the controller less sticky than the Xbox Wireless Controller.

The hall effect triggers were also very smooth and surprising sensitive, especially when using the “hair trigger” mode. But the triggers feel a little hollow compared to the Xbox Wireless Controller’s more traditional trigger actions because of their tension and depth. Surprisingly, the ABXY face buttons were a standout feature. The face buttons on the GameSir are made with multi-layered microswitches. This gives them a beautiful click instead of the soft clack of the Xbox Wireless Controller. Even though it’s not perfect, I much prefer the way this action feels.

The bumpers work fine, but I’d give this to the Xbox Wireless Controller because it has a better click and more firm action. So far, most of the GameSir G7 is more than good enough. Whether the company’s slightly different approach to designing controllers puts it above or below Xbox as the industry standard depends on your personal taste. The D-Pad, on the other hand, is where we think the Xbox Wireless Controller completely beats the G7.

GameSir G7: Gaming Experience

We recently used the Windows 10 system and found that the gamepad works with a lot of games. The main button functions work as they should, and there are no vibration or triggering problems while playing. In games like “Forza Horizon 5,” the gamepad does exactly what it was designed to do. The back of the gamepad’s grip is made of silicone, and the surface is textured so that it doesn’t slip. When held tightly, it gives a full, secure grip without making any noise.

The gamepad weighs about 250 grams, which is a good weight for it. With the gamepad in your hand, you can easily reach the two back buttons with your ring finger. The trigger button is slightly angled up and has a small texture on its surface to keep it from slipping. When quickly and firmly pressed, it won’t slide off the finger. All four action buttons use mechanical microswitches, which let you press them with a clear and accurate touch. The button stroke is short, with a solid bottoming and a sharp rebound, making a satisfying clicking sound.

Pricing & availability

GameSir G7 review

GameSir is based in China, but the G7 Wired Controller is sold all over the world thanks to a global distribution network. But many of the most popular stores may not carry GameSir products. Amazon seems to be the best place to find most of GameSir’s products and accessories.

This could change in the future, since the G7 Wired Controller just came out and GameSir keeps getting more and more popular. The GameSir G7 Wired Controller costs US$44.99, which is about the same as many other wired controllers and less than the official Xbox Wireless Controller. This makes it a good value and a good choice.

Final Words

The GameSir G7 Wired Controller gives you a great basic controller experience in a body that’s smaller than the Xbox Wireless Controller. It also has a few useful and well-thought-out extra features that are good for hard-core gamers and people who want a controller that will last. It’s hard to find things to complain about with the G7, and most of my complaints were just about how I like my controller, the Xbox Wireless Controller, to work.

If you want a wired controller and are on a tight budget, the GameSir G7 is a great choice for players of all skill levels and should also work well for those with smaller hands. GameSir keeps getting better at making controllers, and its most recent mobile controllers, such as the GameSir X2 Pro, are also very easy to recommend. The GameSir G7 Wired Controller is a great accessory for Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, or a Windows PC.

FAQs

What is a GameSir controller used for?

GameSir VX2 AimBox is a console adapter that lets you play games from different platforms on your PC. Now, the question of which is better, a controller or a mouse and keyboard, has always been around. I play both console and PC games, but most of the time I use a controller. Even when I play PC games, I use a controller.

What reduces input lag?

You can turn off V-Sync in your game’s settings or the control panel for your graphics card, or you can use a fast-sync option if one is available. If your monitor and graphics card are compatible, you can also use G-Sync, which can reduce input lag without sacrificing smoothness.
