Those interested in picking up a new DualSense should be aware that the second wave of coloured controllers (Starlight Blue, Nova Pink and Galactic Purple) feature better internal components, according to several hardware breakdowns.
The most significant change is the new springs that are used in the triggers. According to TronicsFix, the newer springs are longer and appear more robust. Weak springs were a common failure point on launch and launch window PS5 controllers.
An investigation last year into why joystick drift occurs in DualSense and other controllers suggested PS5’s analogue sticks have an operating life of around 417 hours.
