Your Vita slides in shoulder buttons first, then you snap the bottom into place like the way a cellphone case clips onto the face of a phone. Once installed, the grip feels like a natural part of your Vita. While the Vita feels secure in the grips, a couple of times I must have grabbed it at that magic spot where the leverage was just right to snap the Vita back over one of the clips that hold it in place. It only came out half way...but it was enough to make me scramble to keep from dropping my Vita.
The grips have trigger shaped buttons that are situated on top of your L and R shoulder buttons. These triggers work just fine, but I don't like the feel of them. They feel spongy (for lack of a better way to describe it). Still, I never had issues with missing a shoulder button press regardless of how I feel about the grip's shoulder buttons.
I bought this hoping that the grips would make it easier to endure long play sessions on my PS Vita. I wanted to like it...I really, really did, but using this grip puts my ring and pinky fingers to "sleep" (they get numb and tingly). My Playstation 3 controller also does this to me...so, if you have issues holding your PS3 controller for more than an hour or so, you may have problems with these grips like I do.
I have no problems with numbness or tingling when using a XBOX 360 or Wii U Pro controller, so I know it's just the design of the grips. I'm just saying, you may have issues if PS3 controllers give you problems like they do for me.
It's not a terrible product, but it's a bad product for me. I wouldn't buy this grip again...but your mileage may vary.
It snaps on and fits well, as tight as you need it without damaging your system, and the grip is a special rubbery plastic that minimizes your chances of dropping it, which I especially liked with my history of dropping expensive devices.
The only real problems I had were the fact that my vita can't fit in my pocket anymore, and the fact that it takes a bit to get used to, about a day for me. Another thing that bothered me was, like I said before, I wish the bottom of the grip was a bit longer, along with the fact that the triggers, though upgraded to a more console-like type, felt odd when pressing, and were lowered below the original vita triggers, which was most of what needed getting used to.
Other than those small problems, most of which I got over after the first day, this is a very good grip for its price, especially when looked at next to its other, oddly-shaped, uncomfortable competition. This grip is going to last you a while, along with possibly extending the life of your system by lowering the chance of dropping, and, if you do drop it anyway, giving it a bit of extra padding for protection.
This one is both.
Currently priced at $11 (I paid $15), this is an absolute steal that had made my Vita experience better in every way. The grips snap on simply and easily. Takes two seconds. Once on, they feel like an extension of the unit. Only once or twice, during rough handling on my part, have they risked coming off.
They make holding the Vita FAR more comfortable, somewhat similar to holding a standard controller. Gone are the hand and wrist cramps I used to get from extended usage. They make the unit a little bulkier, yes, but the tradeoff is TOTALLY worth it.
No jacks, buttons, or other features are obscured by the grips.
The grips also turn the shoulder buttons into triggers. I prefer this and find that action games control much better this way. The triggers are responsive and fast; I've see no difference in performance using them.
Finally, one unadvertised feature is that these grips double as a protector/case when it comes to side impacts. They won't protect the front and back screens, but they do protect the outer edges of the unit.
Bottom line is, for just $11, no Vita user should be without these.
Anyway so this item isn't for everyone. I didn't like how the Vita felt in my hands, as my fingers would touch the back touch-pad activating whatever button was tied to it for the game I was playing. Frustrated I wanted to find a solution and I found these. I bought one for a friend for Christmas first as the Vita fit worse in his hands, and he loved it.
After hearing the good news I decided to bite after some thought. It has its ups and downs. Generally I use it for Remote Play with my PS4 when I'm home and rarely when I have my Vita on the go. That's when my protective case comes in. The grips are very nice and provide that extra grip to make it feel like a Dualshock with a touchscreen on it. The trigger grips are okay and do work, however as someone stated it does leave a slight scuff, but again we're constantly tapping/pushing the button when playing. They're great for games that map correct functions to it; however, if that's not the case you'll wanna either remap it or consider not using it.
All in all decent accessory.
