    Can this wake a paired sleeping switch like real joycon/ pro controller?

    I doubt that's possible, but if it is someone should make a simple app with the sole purpose of waking the switch. a widget would be so convenient.

    I'm impressed how well it works. However, I'd love to be able to use external controllers with it, touch screen is very unprecise. I noticed some inputs not being registered or being registered multiple times, I don't know if this is because of the touch controls or the app itself.

    Try to install Octopus and assign your external controller buttons to touch presses.

    In theory, yes, and that is why I want to test it, I want to measure the input latency and see if is convenient, otherwise it would be better to buy an 8bitdo adapter.

    Nice! Can't test myself though, stranded on Nougat.

    Oh, the fragmentation.

    I wonder how much input-lag we would get using a keyboard with an OTG adapter

    Dude, just download a custom rom based on android pie
    I just did that for my S7
    BlackDiamond rom
    The app is actually really good, unlike jakibaki's it connects over bluetooth and I felt absolutely no latency!

    Did you notice any major latency? I haven't tried wired gamepads yet
