Material: resin, feel firm and comfortable, not too big with small hand at the press, not too small with the big hand when not fatigue
Button: made pretty nice, button is rounded, easy click and light, good bounce, no feeling of sinking or shallow. Need an analog sized, finger slider is slightly concave to help hold more fingers, the outer edge of the need for slit to help pull the need to be sure.
The middle: the menu button is made quite large, the LED bar (4 ball): the status of the battery, the number of connected handsets, status search device.
D-pad navigation button: This is a kind of plus sign (quite a lot of gamers like it), a little bit hard compared to other keys, and the head of the main directions is quite clear direction when clicked.
