Overall Best Pick

The Dualshock 4 controller is the official controller for Sony’s PlayStation 4 game console. If you are a gamer it is no doubt that you have heard about this controller.

Build and Design

Sony has not compromised on the quality of the Dualshock 4 controller. The controller is made from the finest plastic which makes it feel rugged and premium. The Dualshock 4 has followed the same design aesthetic as its predecessors although with the addition of a new touchpad.

The button layout on the controller includes the same iconic PlayStation triangle, square, circle, and X face buttons. These buttons are properly placed to make it comfortable to reach and they are clicky and tactile.

The triggers on the controller also have great feedback and they even have a good resistance to them which is appreciated. The analog sticks are extremely smooth and responsive.

In terms of both competitive and casual gaming, the DualShock 4 is a good controller, and the added touchpad is a bonus as this would give you an advantage in some games.

Battery Life

To be frank, the Dualshock 4 does not include a great battery. The battery on the controller is decent at best. This controller will give you an average playtime of 4-5 hours on a single charge.

Additionally, you can also connect it via a micro USB cable and play your games and at the same time, the controller will also get charged up.

Buying Guide for Gaming Controller Under RS 3000

With gaming being the most famous leisure activity around the globe, almost everyone has a gaming device with them whether it is a smartphone, game console, a pc, or a laptop.

A game controller is a companion to ensure that you have the best experience when you’re playing games on your respective device. But choosing a game controller is not an easy task. With the ever-growing video game market, you have a lot of choices to select from.

We at Bettershark have written this short buying guide to help you choose and bring to light a few important points that must be carefully evaluated before purchasing a game controller.


First and foremost, compatibility is one of the most important things to look out for.

Although there is a wide range of gamepads available in the market, not all of them are compatible with every device. Usually, game consoles have their respective game controllers, and other controllers don’t work with them.

So you should make sure you check out the compatibility of controllers before purchasing.

If you are choosing a controller for PC gaming make sure that the controller has support for Xinput and Dinput API. Most modern games support the Xinput interface.

When purchasing a controller for an Android or iOS mobile device, you would need an OTG connector unless Bluetooth connectivity is available.


Most game controllers in the market feature a complete plastic construction.. It is rare to find controllers that have a metal chassis.

It is quite expected to see cheap gamepads using average quality plastics and premium gamepads use high-quality polycarbonate plastic materials for its construction.

Game controllers can either be wired or wireless. Wireless gaming controllers usually have a USB receiver or are connected via Bluetooth.

Wired controllers are attached via a USB cable and they have no input delay. Wireless controllers have also advanced to a point where there is almost no noticeable latency.


Comfortability is one of the most important factors to take into consideration while purchasing a game controller. There is no point in purchasing a gaming controller that does not feel great in the hands.

Controllers come in different sizes and choosing the perfect size for you is a priority. If you are someone who has large hands, then choosing a small controller won’t do any good as you won’t be getting the best gaming experience

The weight of the controller is another important factor to be considered. Heavier controllers feel more sturdy and durable but they are not great for long gaming sessions.

Some controllers have a textured design to them or they might have rubber inserts. These provide you with a better grip to hold onto the controller. They are good for sweaty palms since the controller does not slip from the hand.


Before purchasing a game controller do go through the list of features that they offer.

Game controllers come with features like turbo buttons and additional programmable buttons.

Vibration in controllers is one of the most important things which you should look out for, Haptic feedback truly changes the way that games are played. They provide you with haptic feedback for actions that happen on screen.

Some controllers feature lighting effects like backlit keys which don’t improve your gaming performance but act as a mere design choice. You should not base your purchase decision on whether there is any LED lighting on the controller.

Another important functionality is motion controls. Some game controllers like the Nintendo Switch Pro controller and Dualshock 4 feature motion controls which are required for certain games. Not all third-party gamepads feature these motion controls.


Most wireless gaming controllers have a battery life of an average of 10 hours. Don’t worry much about battery life on gaming controllers, you can go for any of the controllers as long as they have more than 6 hours of battery life.

Charging a gaming controller takes up around 2-3 hours.

We hope you have understood a few of the important points to be considered when choosing a game controller for Rs.3000. If you have any more questions or doubts regarding choosing a controller, do feel free to comment down below and we will get back to you.


Q. How long do gaming controllers last?

A. There is no specific time for how long a gaming controller lasts. The life of a gamepad depends on several factors. The usage scenario, if it has taken any damage or the quality of the build.

No one can specify how long the controller will last but usually, a controller from a good brand will last for more than 2 years.

Q. What to do if a stick drifting issue is found on the controller?

A. The problem of stick drift is something which can be solved only by dismantling the controller. Issues like stick drifts develop over time due to heavy usage. If this occurs it is best to go to a local video game repair shop as it is a minor issue.
