Flydigi Vader 3 Pro vs Apex 4

Flydigi Vader 3 Pro and Flydigi Apex 4 are both great controllers with Hall Effect Joysticks.

The biggest differences? Apex 4 has adaptive (impulse) triggers which is a cool gimmick for some games, it’s very similar to Sony’s Dualsense adaptive triggers. And there’s also the adjustable joystick tension.

On another hand Vader 3 Pro has two side face buttons and is $20-30 cheaper.

  1. You’re hurting my head with the infinite loop of the button press.

  2. hi there! so im coming from a xbox series x wireless controller, which would be an upgrade for me? vader 3 pro or the apex 4? what im excited most for is the higher polling rate, not sure if ill feel a difference since i dont play compettively and only casual side scrollers or games thats top view. Also im excited for the mechanical buttons and hopefully better vibration motors. between the vader3pro and apex 4, are there vibration motors any different and their mechanical buttons? the vader 3 pro is half the price of an apex 4 in my country and im wondering which is more worth it to get since i wont be using most of the apex 4 features.
