With a phone mount, you can play no matter where you are.
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.
Reliable brand name
Nyko Smart Clip
Nyko’s smart clip attaches easily to your phone without getting in the way of your lightbar, buttons, or the touchpad. It also avoids all of the ports on your DualShock 4 controller so that you can easily plug in to charge without any hassle.
Megadream 180-degree Android clip
Having a phone mount that is versatile and able to move is key when you are playing on a small screen, and that is precisely what Megadream delivers. The mount has 180-degrees of rotation which means you can tweak where your phone is sitting while you game.
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.
Cheap and simple
Micelec Plastic Clip-on phone mount
The cheapest of the bunch, the Micelec Plastic Clip-on phone mount is about as simple as you can get. It’s lightweight, easy to attach to your controller, and you can rotate the screen for your viewing pleasure.
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.
