Xbone is still micro-USB, and there’s only slightly more of an indent, though it does seem to hold the cable more notably firmly than the PS4 one, but like, is this a thing that happens that I’ve just never heard of? Or a theoretical concern based on the possibility of it happening? I mean, I’ve used both PS4 and Xbone pads like this for 5+ years and it never even occurred to me that this could be a problem, and it hasn’t been. Was I just lucky or something?
A proper Switch controller is another possibility, and is USB-C, but it’s more expensive, has the buttons reversed (as Bill points out), which is is the source of endless confusion, and for my hands is less comfortable.
(As an aside it is kind of amazing to me that the Xbone controller is so comfortable and good whilst looking so similar to the 360 one, which I did not like - and obviously the original Xbox one was a weird nightmare. I guess it’s like a similar situation with Megadrive and Saturn six-button controllers - the Megadrive six-button ones were extremely well-made and comfortable - the Saturn ones barely looked different, but were uncomfortable, differently weighted, had a totally different pad-feel, and broke all the time)
I personally avoid no-name/off-brand controllers unless they’re extremely well-reviewed (and heavily-reviewed), because I’ve had bad experiences with them - uncomfortable, badly-weighted, incompatible in weird and unexpected ways, and so on. If going no-name I’d go Xbone for a PC because they’re the most stable and well-developed for that operating system.
