Spongy, Non-Functioning Shoulder Button
on October 17, 2017
Great controller... when it works. A few months after having this controller, I noticed that, sometimes, the left shoulder button wouldn't fire when pressed. I took a toothbrush to it and it would work better. This behavior just keeps getting worse. A couple of weeks ago, it has started failing much more often than working. I don't use this controller that much, so it's not from being worn out. The left shoulder button is noticeably more spongy than the right one. The right one makes a nice click when pressed, the left one is more like a thunk. I took the case off and the it's not just the physical button that's weak, the actual sensor makes a different sound and is spongy compared to the other side. Based on other reviews, these shoulder buttons seem to be a weak point, so pass on this controller if you don't want to be replacing it in a few months.
