Which is the best XBOX SERIES S|X controller?

Official XBOX SERIES controller

Connection: Wireless and Cable
Colors: Black, Blue, White

The Xbox X and S Series brings with it a completely new and improved controller over the old generation. Normally Xbox controllers are a favorite for many gamers, especially for their button placement and ergonomics. The truth is that they adapt to all types of hands, large or small, and this new version of Xbox Series X controllers polishes some aspects.

Above all they have focused on improving the crosshead, now inspired by the Microsoft Elite Controller, improving the pressing on the diagonals.

The main novelty in this Xbox Series X controller is the share button. A small actuator in the central part that will allow to create clips and screenshots to share them directly on social networks.

The crosshair changes its relief to improve the diagonal pressing and on the other hand, the rear triggers add a matte and anti-slip texture. In addition, its design is now more rounded, allowing smaller hands to reach all the buttons with ease.

Finally, Xbox has provided a list of specifications for the Xbox X Series controller.

The connector is USB-C type for when we use battery, not osbstante is a controller that comes factory battery-powered. In addition, the functionality is extended so that you can use the controller on any device of any generation, facilitating any type of connection with Bluetooth Low Energy (BTLE).

In addition, Microsoft has created a new technology called Dynamic Latency Input (DLI). This new functionality serves to reduce the input lag, reducing the reaction time on the screen from the moment we press any button or joystick.

Horipad Pro Controller

Connection: Cable
Colors: Black

Hori is a brand that has already accustomed us to high quality devices, which dispense with some features, as in this case the wireless connection to optimize the cost of the controller to the maximum.

At first glance we see a similar design in the contour of the controller but unique at the bottom of the crosshead and right joystick.

It has all the features of the original XBOX SERIES controller, such as vibration and headphone connection, but also incorporates extra buttons to control the audio easily, adjusting the volume or muting the microphone.

On the other hand, the cable is 3 meters long, which is much appreciated since we don’t have to be glued to the screen. This also helps to reduce input lag.

It also has a software to customize some interesting things like the vibration of the controller or the triggers and if we want we can also activate the sniper mode.

Needless to say, it is officially licensed by Microsoft and the quality of the product is evident.

As for audio, the controller has a 3.5mm mini jack input that allows us to connect headphones directly to the controller.

Moreover, with the RazerTM Controller Setup for Xbox app we can reassign the triggers and multifunction buttons, as well as adjust the sensitivity level of the stick in a quick and easy way.

Thrustmaster has entered the XBOX SERIES competitive controller market with this ESWAP X Pro Controller and let’s see what it has to offer.

One of the main points is its T-MOD technology by which we can change the location of any of the 2 joysticks and the crosshead, and not only change the location but exchange it for some of the packs that the brand has.

These interchangeable parts are called modules, and they are consciously manufactured to have a high sensitivity and top of the line performance, customizable through Thrustmapperx software.

As for the triggers, they have locking, so you don’t have to press all the way and can perform some actions faster, such as shooting in shooters.

And of course, it also has 4 fully mappable rear buttons to be able to perform any action without lifting your thumbs from the joyticks, or crosshead or whatever you have put in the modules. The thing is that they are somewhat small buttons and you will need to get used to master them.

The controller is cable operated and has a 3.5mm mini-jack input. In addition, it comes with a carrying case and 2 extra joysticks of different ergonomics to change.
