the thumb sticks are more rugged and have better grip on them
By Nick TK
I have definitely seen multiple improvements with these new PS4 controllers over the older ones. The battery lasts a lot longer, the thumb sticks are more rugged and have better grip on them, L2 and R2 buttons are more springy (good thing), and the thumb sticks also feel way smoother when moving them around. Other things I have noticed is that the buttons are now grey like the throwback controller and there is now a light on the touchpad. Although the last gen controllers are still pretty good, I would definitely recommend the new gen controllers for only $10 more.

NEW PS4 Controller and definitely an Upgrade
By Jordan Chan
This is the NEW PS4 controller. The easiest way to identify this is the blue LED bar in the front. The thumb sticks seem to be made of a denser, grippier material so that's an upgrade as well. Battery life is definitely better. Should have bought more to replace all my old ones... but oh well.

I previously owned a first year PS4 controller I bought on release, this new controller was a significant improvement over it, especially in the trigger buttons and the battery life.
Most significant improvements were:
* Improved battery life
* Improved grip texture on L3 & R3 buttons (grip is much better on the thumbs, as they slide off less if you have clammy hands like I do :p )
* Improved trigger buttons, especially L2 & R2 (these would sometimes develop a mild 'squeek' on the earlier DualShock 4 controllers)
* Improved home button (first year PS4 controller home buttons would develop a little bit of a 'stickiness' after a while, this controller's home button is much easier to press)
* Slightly improved overall button textures
* Controller's overall texture feels less 'sticky', smoother on the hand grip
I've been playing video games since Atari, and personally I think the DualShock 4 is among the Greatest Of All Time, if not THE greatest of all time, as far as console controllers go, based on ease of use, ergonomic feel and build quality...that's just my opinion. Worth the price for me :)
So, GOAT? Yes, GOAT.
