Device Compatibility Guide

Unfortunately, although Android 4.0 and above supports controllers natively, some carriers use custom software that interferes with a wired connection to a DualShock 3 controller. If your device isn't listed it might work just fine, it just means I haven't been able to test the device personally. If your device is unlisted, it may help to search for the term "USB Host Enabled" on forums dedicated to your device. If your device has USB Host support it'll most likely work just fine with a DualShock 3 controller. If you need help, please feel free to contact me!

If your device isn't listed as compatible with a wired connection it will most likely still be compatible with a wireless connection using the Sixaxis Controller app, by Dancing Pixel Studios. You will need root access to use this app. To ensure compatibility, please download the free Sixaxis Compatibility Checker.
