“This is probably the most comfortably designed controller I’ve ever held. The buttons are nice and big and feel great to press, the weight is good, the sticks feel great, like all Nintendo analog sticks do. HD rumble and motion controls work fine and battery life is worlds ahead of the PS4 controller,” said reviewer Morgan on Amazon.
