Logitech G502X Plus: Review of Design

When we took the wireless mouse out from its box, there were some design changes. The RGB light strip runs along the palm rest, dividing the mouse into three sections. The G Hub app can make this light strip display different colours using its 8-LED array. If you’re worried about unnecessary battery consumption, the ‘Active play detection’ feature automatically turns off the lights when your hand covers the mouse.

Although the thumb rest panel still has the rubber texture, it now sports a straight line design instead of the triangular pattern that was on the predecessor. To reduce accidental clicks, the sniper key at the front can be turned. There’s also an additional key provided in the box which mutes the click altogether.

Logitech G502 X Plus: Performance

Although the G502 X Plus design is stunning, its outstanding performance is what made it a legend over the years. The Logitech G502X Plus has maintained its reputation, which we are pleased to say. Over the course of one week, we used the mouse extensively for gaming as well casual use. We have nothing but positive things to share. 

Logitech G502 X Plus: Performance

First, it is easy to connect the Logitech G502 X Plus to your computer. All you need to do is plug in the USB receiver and flick the power switch at the bottom of the mouse and you’re good to go. There’s no option for Bluetooth connectivity, which means you cannot connect the mouse to more than one device. The G502 X Plus has a pro-grade connection, which means it generates a 68% quicker response time than its predecessors. 

When we were gaming with the mouse, our preference was for the lightweight design and low-friction high-elasticity PTFE feet. The G502X Plus was able to withstand various surface types. Logitech has retained the Hero 25K sensor on the G502 X Plus (if it ain’t broke don’t fix it!) It delivers superior tracking as we’ve come to expect. The lighter design makes it easier to control during intense gaming sessions and it doesn’t cause much stress if you’ve been using it for hours. Logitech should still reduce the weight of its mouse as it develops new models. 

Logitech G502 X Plus: Performance

We were amazed at the tactile responses we received from the buttons. Lightforce switches have improved speed and immediate responses, but retain the clarity of feedback we all love. All 13 buttons can be customized through the G Hub App. G7, and G8 keys located left of the leftclick can adjust DPI levels automatically. This feature was extremely useful in switching between gaming and regular controls. 

The seamless movement and response we received from the mouse while playing FPS games such as Counter-Strike and Valorant were amazing. It is able to accommodate both claw and palm grip. You may need to reach down a little to get to the sniper button if your hands are small. The G502X Plus is great for larger hands. 

Logitech also improved the G502X Plus’s battery life. Lightspeed technology makes the most of your device’s power and uses it very intelligently. The G502X Plus can last up to 130 hours with the RGB lighting off. You don’t have to sacrifice on aesthetics if you want up to 37 hours battery life. The RGB lights are always on and can be turned off for as long as you like. The mouse can also work while being charged, so it won’t be much of an issue.
