MFI controller help

Hello, Iíve never used an MfI controller before and Iím in the market for one. The probably is no matter what website you go to they all have an average of about 3.5/5 star ratings and the issues people have with them scare me from getting one because theyíre so expensive (to me 60 is expensive) on top of that NONE of them claim to be compatible with iPhone 8 Plus. So my question is. Which controller should I invest in? I wonít get a gamevice 100 is way too much to spend on a controller, so letís keep it at the normal 59.99 and below limitation. Iíd like to hear from anyone that uses an MFI certified device on their iPhone 8 Plus to know for sure that 1 it works and 2 the phone fits the clip. Oh I did forget to mention. It has to be a controller with a clip to hold my phone. I prefer doing my mobile gaming chilled back in bed, not propping my phone up on a table lol. I know it sound very picky but I have to be, I abandoned console gaming after 28 years of it with the current gen systems, mobile is all I have left, I play pretty much everything lol free and paid. Usually at home I almost never play and travel. (I thought about a switch one day since I donít have to play on a tv) thanks in advance!

That's the same model as what I've had for a year and a half, and adore it.

Thanks for the replies. I ended up getting a SteelSeries Nimbus and a phone clip from amazon. It wasnít out of impatience though. My birthday hit and a controller had to get ordered before the money went to something else (it was a gift from my parents lol) I love it the only thing that saddens me is the thumbsticks arenít clickable so even though most games donít require that. Some do and Iím just waiting for that one really good game that comes out but I wonít get to use my controller because of it
