The whole thing feels like a premium controller. It’s surprisingly heavy compared to the standard One controllers, but it feels good to hold. The rubber around the grips give a nice tactile feel, too.
The buttons feel great. I was pleasantly surprised that the Xbox button feels more like a normal button with very little travel compared to all the other One controllers I have. The sticks and dpads are very easily to swap out but the magnets used to keep them in are strong enough that they’re not going to come out just from shaking it.
Button on Xbox Elite Controller 2 are great which feels more like normal and there is very little travel required to switch between keys compared to Xbox One Controllers. Sticks and Dpads are easy to swap out. The user find paddles lot more comfortable in terms of using clicks, recording and taking screenshot. Xbox Elite Controller 2 also comes with a new feature that allows to adjust the brightness of the lights on the controller.
I like the paddles a lot. Being able to set them for left stick click, right stick click, record a clip, and take a screenshot is amazing. Best feature of the controller right there for me.
Being able to adjust the brightness of the lights on the controller is a neat idea, but the effect is incredibly subtle for most of the settings. I actually didn’t think it was doing anything when I first started adjusting that.
