It showed one year warranty when I registered with MS. I know it’s subjective but I liked the clickyness over the long run.
 
Thanks to those who helped me make the decision, especially @john1911 . Feels well built for the price imo.
There's basically zero lag with the dongle, which was my biggest worry. Since this is my first controller, can't really compare to anything else hut it feels quite good to use, although a bit plastic-y to hold. Rumble feels good

Finally settled with Xbox , thank you all for you support.

here' a brief first impressions for robot white controller -

* D-pad and analog sticks are relatively very small if I compare it with PS3 controllers. Overall build quality is solid and sturdy actually it's the difference between original and 3rd party controller.
* D-pad and buttons are clicky as suggested by youtubers, but I don't liked this tic tic sound (doesn't sounds premium to me)
* Connectivity is instant , takes only 2 seconds on windows 10 PC.
* battery ? too early to judge.
* triggers are very good but on PS3 or Ps4 it's more accurately positioned.

Overall it's very good controller but I'll reduce 1 star for clicky buttons and D-pad & half star for High price with limited 3 months warranty (not sure if it's 3 months only)
Let me play some games and It will take little time to get used to it but for now it's 3.5/5 from me.
Once again thanking you all for for valuable input and suggestions.
Forgot to mention , Very good latency, I've not experienced any lag.
As for the vibration motor it's inferior than PS3-4 Controllers.

I forgot, thanks Kmkaks for a unknowingly reminder. I just registered both controllers and warranty ends on 9/17/2021. So it's just 3 months only.
No regrets buying these but these controllers should be priced at 3600-3800rs for a fair deal.
This was the rate earlier, then this corona happened and everyone's aware what's happing now for electronic items pricing.

This is odd? I got 1 year on the controllers I bought from gamestheshop.

Sold another one here with box etc, which had one year too.
 
Lucky you, may be they changed it for recent stock. any how it wont' affect in my case as my usage is very light like 4hrs / week.
and after 1yr or warranty lapse electronic items are prone to failure. Manufacturers always know what kind of quality they are maintaining.

Just an FYI for those looking for wired controllers & considering Power A. I had purchased one over a year ago & while the value & quality they provide at this price is good they also have some issues in them.

In my case, the analogue sticks became squeaky in just a couple of months although no drift issues yet. Also the rumble got loose with time & creates more noise & vibrations than it used to earlier. It feels like the motors have gotten a bit loose inside the housing. This is evident because holding the controller tightly fixes these vibration noises & also results in a tighter rumble effect. The shoulders buttons, specially L1-LB/R1-RB were never very tactile & are a bit difficult to press. The overall controller size also feels a little bit smaller compared to my 360 controller. So far they are working fine but I wouldn't be surprised if I start getting drift issues in a couple of months.

Please note that this comparison is based upon my earlier use of the 360 controllers which were really excellent & worked absolutely fine for more than 3-4 years.

Controller that I am talking about is this => https://www.amazon.in/gp/product/B07NPY1YT5/

Could be possible that warranty is based on serial number. Not sure why such a differentiation would be done in the first place itself tho. And it feels weird realising that my ₹1700 controller has 6 months warranty compared to 3 mo ths for a ₹5k+ one :0

See this guys. I don’t understand, wth? If anyone has any idea, pls share. I rechecked in the manual that came with the controller and it still shows 90 days for accessories. Did MS screw up?
