You can see my dpad and left analog stick issues here:

Yup.  Our Dpads are very different.  I can tell you are forcing yours where mine just moves easily.  Mine isn't even really that stiff after using it for a day.  My right joystick just keeps popping out, which makes it too difficult to use.

We both have that left wobble of the entire controller.

My right controller isn't difficult to put in, like yours is.  That could be due to it being a little smaller a phone though.

My MicroUSB on the right controller is off also.  I didn't even notice it until your video.

My sticks are my biggest issue right now.  I may just tear this apart and put it back together better.

Well it's pretty simple when opening it up.



not really too happy with that bare wiring.  Also the analog trigger isn't analog at all.  So... thats another silly design.

Fixed my dpad and the analog squeakyness

I'm liking it now.

Here's the fixed dpad in action:

Congrats! I'm inspired now, but the Moto Gamepad isn't as user friendly. There's no clear way to open the mod.

Hows the controller working for you now? Is the modification holding up?

Yea it works.  I really dislike attachments though.  I forget to carry it with me.  I glued the top part shut, since just unscrewing and re-screwing destroy that post.

I still don't recommend the GameVice.  But I've made it workable.

I see. Sorry to hear. I'm not a fan of attachments either. The Moto Pad and Logitech Powershell are more like cases, so it's acceptable. I wish Gamevice had a case instead of an attachment. I understand no case for Android, but at least for iPhone since the design is standard.

I've been wearing down the D-Pad for the Moto Pad and so far it's working. The presses are registering quicker now and I was able to do some diagonal movements. Hopefully I can fix it without opening it up, but the screws are behind the red sticker if I need to go that route.

Sorry I haven't chimed in yet.  I really haven't had time to play with it.  Been stocking up on hurricane supplies, protecting the house, dealing with those things.  I'm just outside Orlando, FL. so I will probably mess with it more when the power goes out.  Until then, be safe everyone.

Thank you Sony.  We are well prepared, but are nervous of this one.  I really expected to open the controller up by now and see what is different with the builds, but I've been spending the week getting supplies.  Since most of the stores have been cleared out since Tuesday, we've been checking each one daily to see what's arrived.  Most stores have have daily trucks with supplies arrive.  It's been really crazy trying to find everything.  We got lucky and stocked though.

Just got power back 2 hours ago.  8 days without power sucked!
