Design

It comes in two color options – black or white – and has a matte-textured finish made of high-quality plastic. It is designed specifically for right-handed users and is intended for a palm grip.

The G502 X Plus transmits data via a USB dongle that can be connected directly to the PC. There is also a USB-C port located on the front side for recharging the mouse.

The mouse has a total of 13 programmable buttons, all of which can be remapped using the Logitech G HUB software.

The top of the Logitech G502 X Plus features left and right click buttons that are very precise and have a crisp, muted clicky sound. Next to the left click button are two buttons that can be used to switch DPI on the fly.

The scroll wheel is quick and precise, with good resistance and a small indicator above it to display the charging status. It is also clickable and can be tilted left and right for two additional, fully programmable controls.

Beneath the scroll wheel are two buttons. The first button adjusts the scroll mode, which is set to either ‘Ratchet’ or ‘Free Spin’ by default. The second button switches between the five onboard profiles.

There are also two buttons on the left side of the mouse. The thumb rest area features a dedicated sniper button that can be removed and reversed to bring it closer to your thumb, or replaced with the included button cover.

At the base of the mouse is a power switch and a push-to-open removable panel that reveals a storage slot for the USB dongle. There are also three large PTFE glide pads to help with smooth, gliding movement. The mouse also has a non-lit G logo on the lower side.

In terms of design, the G502 X has an ergonomic shape that is designed for a comfortable right-handed grip. It also has a rubber grip texture around the thumb area to provide comfort during long gaming sessions and prevent slipping.

Overall, the construction of the Logitech G502 X Plus is excellent. It looks premium and ergonomic, feels comfortable to use, and glides smoothly. However, the included USB Type-A to Type-C cable is not braided and feels a bit cheap

Features & Performance

The Logitech G502 X Plus is equipped with Logitech’s HERO sensor and has an adjustable DPI range of 100 to 25,600, a tracking speed of 400 IPS, and up to 40g of acceleration. This sensor provides accurate tracking and sensitivity adjustment.

The G502 X Plus is also the first mouse from Logitech to come with LIGHTFORCE hybrid optical-mechanical switches.

One of the standout features of the Logitech G502 X Plus is that it uses a built-in battery instead of replaceable ones, making it easy to recharge. The USB-C port on the front side of the mouse can be used for recharging or for wired use.

The default DPI settings on the mouse can be customized using the Logitech G Hub software, and the DPI can also be manually switched using the buttons on the left side of the mouse.

The Logitech G502 X Plus boasts LIGHTSYNC RGB, which uses an 8-LED array to produce a full spectrum of 16.8 million colors. This technology also includes active play detection, which automatically shuts off the lighting when your hand covers it to help conserve battery power.

In our testing, the mouse performed well and had very good overall impressions. It is extremely lightweight, making it easy to make quick movements. It can also be easily customized to your preferences and skills using the Logitech G Hub software.

We never experienced any connection or delay issues while using the mouse. The main buttons click very precisely and feel light and crisp, while not being too loud. The side buttons are easily accessible, and the matte, textured surface provides a very good grip. The scroll wheel offers excellent resistance and can be used with precision without causing wrist or finger fatigue

Software

The mouse settings can be adjusted using the Logi G Hub software, which can be downloaded from Logitech’s website. The software allows you to customize the button functions, adjust the CPI and polling rate, save up to five custom profiles in onboard memory, and more.

Battery & Charging

In terms of battery life, Logitech promises up to 130 hours of use on full charge and up to 36 hours with RGB on. In our tests, we found that the mouse was fully functional for about three days on a single charge with a few hours of RGB lighting on, and it charged back up quickly. Overall, the battery life of the G502 X Plus is impressive.
