To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
The textured grips on the top and bottom are very welcoming, should your hands get sweaty. The paddles are smaller than the series 1, they take a little bit to get use to. The old Series 1 paddles can be put in their place if you like larger paddles. The old magnetic thumbsticks can't be used on the series 2 so if you had after-market ones you have to buy them again for the new version. Only in the long-term we will see if the rubber bubbles like on the old one. The built in battery lasts for about 2 days of use and recharges easily on the wireless charger but you need to lift the cloth material to get the pins to connect.
After the typical issues with series 1 ( grips, stick drift ), this seems a whole lot better ( yes, it's new ) but only time will tell. The xbox button requires very light touch to work and the response is better from both sticks and buttons. Time will tell
A button doesn’t register some times, especially when holding down or pressing repeatedly. Sometimes happens with other face buttons. This appears to be a fault with the product as many people are experiencing the same problem. This is totally unacceptable for such a premium controller at this price.
