Dumb question, when does it become advantageous XIM4>XIM APEX? Vise versa

I guess mostly if you wanna play PS5.

I have both, and I prefer XIM4 for the way it connects and doesn't plug directly into the console.

Other than that I haven't noticed any huge difference in performance.

Apex has more space for configs and future updates, so the clearest advantage is future proofing.

Has nsignific said, most likely to play ps5 games. They are working on the Apex to make it full compatible, but until it's working fully without third party controllers (which seems a bit hit & miss) I'll be holding on before buying one, also will be keeping a close eye on the Keymander 2 3Play's development for compatibility. It would be nice to see a new Xim adapter but been told they are not working on one.

Itís most advantageous when you are cutting through aim assist. With the Xim4 you get stuck on the AA a lot, making multi-kills harder. With the Apex, you can cut right through the AA.

I use my Apex on Xbox and my Xim4 on my PS5. You need a Titan Two to use a Xim4 on the PS5. I have no issues with my Xim4, it still works great.

I've multiple friends and we all play together with a Xim. I'm the only one that hasn't upgraded from the Xim4 to the Apex, yet on every game we play together (BF5, Apex Legends, Warzone), I'd say I'm still slightly better than them on average across the board going by scoreboards,  score per minute,  k\d etc.

I'm not saying that this means the Xim4 is necessarily better,  all I'm saying is based on my personal experience, in comparison of the 2, the Apex hasn't improved my friends to the point where I'd consider it worthwhile upgrading from a 4 to an apex.

There's actually quite a lot of posts from others on this forum who have switched back to a xim4 after using the apex.

Yeah, there really is no need to upgrade in my opinion either. You can still outperform people using an Apex. Like you, I kick @#$% with either device, and when I’m using my Xim4, I never feel like I’m at a disadvantage. And, I like the Xim4’s design better. I still miss using Xim3 with the built in screen though!

I only just upgraded to a Xim apex 2 weeks ago for ps5 support and native xbox series X controller support, till this point I had 0 real reason to upgrade from my xim 4 as it still works fantastically on ps4/xbox one & series x/s (using xbox one controllers)
