Just like the original Kishi, the Razer Kishi V2 has a telescopic bridge that expands to accommodate most of the Android smartphones available on the market, and the bridge itself does not wobble, either. It does have a larger footprint this time around, so it can easily accommodate phones like the Galaxy S22 Ultra. Additionally, Razer has said that users can remove the included rubber inserts if they want to use large phones with a case. This easily makes the Kishi V2 the best Android game controller from Razer, at least as far as compatibility is concerned.
In addition to that, the Razer Kishi V2 also brings a number of improvements on other fronts. For instance, the Razer Kishi V2 uses the same microswitch buttons and d-pad technology that is found on Razer's award-winning Wolverine V2 console controller. This means that users would actually get a number of advantages in terms of the actuation, responsiveness, as well as comfort, and tactile feedback.
The Razer Kishi V2 also comes with two programmable multifunction buttons that are next to the triggers that users can use to replicate other buttons on the controller so you can have a better advantage.
Furthermore, Razer Kishi V2 also has a better has better ergonomics in terms of textured hand grips, better button placement, as well as new materials that will offer gamers a better experience.
As far as the software is concerned, Razer has integrated the Kishi V2 with the Razer Nexus app and that should provide a “more cohesive and powerful experience.” The Razer Nexus app offers an “in-depth catalog to help players discover Android games with controller support. It also includes advanced customization functionality for the Kishi V2 controller, including remapping the multifunction buttons and updating the firmware.”
Last but not the least, the Razer Nexus app also enables integrated live streaming to Facebook and YouTube and even allows players to capture videos and screenshots of their gameplay. The app will be available to download through Google Play Store.
The new Razer Kishi V2 goes on sale at $99.99 starting today and will be released through Razer's website along with other outlets. It is worth noting that the Kishi V2 is not compatible with iPhones, butthe company does plan on releasing one with the Lightning connector soon, but the company has not shared a timeline at the moment.
