First off, I purchased this controller ( DualShock 4 Wireless Controller for PlayStation 4 - Fortnite Jet Black) bundle from the seller "Red White Blue" so I can say that in my experience that they are a trustworthy 3rd party vendor. The packaging was in perfect shape, the code worked, and most importantly the controller is NOT fake.

I'm sure you've seen some of the reviews and maybe some advice on how to spot a fake. I have some of my own for any who are wary of these and want to be sure that their controller isn't some fake that will fail on them in a few months or less.

Part 1: Visual Inspection
Some of these fakes are really well done and they'll be almost impossible to distinguish on the looks alone, but some don't try so hard and you'll notice some oddities like:"
*The PS button logo being off-center
*The font of text on the controller being overly bright
*Large gaps in the seams of the controller
*The thumbsticks looking cheaper with rough edges
*The logo above the lightbar looking off
*The sticker on the back missing / weird barcode that is surrounded by white box / incomplete information
*It having "Sony Computer Entertainment" instead of "Sony Interactive Entertainment"

Part 2: Touch & Feel
The first thing you'll notice on a fake pad is usually the buttons just feel off. The thumbsticks are usually too stiff and are louder than legit pads when you click them in. The touchpad will also be loud when pressed. Something else you might notice if you're familiar with DS4's is the weight. The fakes tend to weigh anywhere from 10-20g lighter. Put it on a mini scale and you can almost be sure if the weight is correct (215-221g is the legit average).

Part 3: Plug it in, plug it in!
Chances are, the battery will be low to dead if you're buying from a 3rd party seller so you're going to want to do this first anyway. Look at the light when you do. It should turn orange and start to pulsate while it's charging. If the light turns off while it's charging, it's a fake. Plug in some working headphones and make sure there's no crackling or popping audio as well.

Part 4: Press play!
If you've passed all these points with flying colors, you're probably good to go. Play a few minutes of your favorite game and get a feel for it. Are the inputs good? No weirdness with the sticks or any buttons unresponsive? Vibration working? I think we're in the clear, lads!

Part 5: Look inside?!?
Honestly, if you've gotten this far you most likely have a legit controller and don't need to do this. I did this because I was bored and was extremely curious due to a minor quirk between this one and my original controller. If you do this, you risk damaging your controller so be careful! Look up a video guide to disassembly if you're not sure how to proceed.

The main things to look for inside is the battery pack and the company logo on the board appearance in general. The battery should be gray. If it's blue, black, or any other color it's either a refurbished unit or a fake. Look at a disassembly video and compare the boards for any discrepancies in layout and components. There should be none so long as you're using the same generation controller (these are V2).

Finished! We did it! If you went the extra mile then you know for sure that you got a legit pad and can rest easy knowing that it probably won't fail on you in a few months. Hope this helped somebody. Thanks for reading!
