Sorry if this was answered and I missed it while skimming, but do the Series controllers still have history's worst shoulder buttons? LB and RB hurt my hands to use on Xbox One controllers, I hate rolling my fingers into them and I think they feel terrible to press individually as well and any game which requires holding those buttons is absolutely a nightmare. The Dualsense being more Xbox-like ergonomically is already turning me off but at least it has good shoulder buttons, but I'm trying to figure out in advance what the move is when my current DS4 inevitably bites the dust.
I have an Xbox One and Series controller right in front of me they're very similar. Something about the Series controller feels better in my hand, and it isn't just the vastly improved D-Pad, the whole thing feels better to hold, I just can't tell you what. The shoulder buttons are the same story as the rest of the controller - something is better, but they're still the same layout. They're slightly easier to push as well.
You may want to look into a Switch controller. I have one of those in front of me right now. They are very comfortable to hold, they feel good to play games with, and putting your entire finger on the bumper is a lot easier and feels more natural to do.
Speaking of "entire finger", do you try to put your entire finger on the Xbox One bumper? I stopped doing that a long time ago. Instead, try just moving sorta the middle part of your finger up to the bumper. Less finger movement, a lot easier to do in a flash, and a lot more comfortable to hold. I say this because if you do wind up using a Switch controller, you'll have a few major disadvantages - having to mess with drivers and getting Steam to make everything look like an Xbox controller is one of them. Another is that the Switch's triggers are just buttons, not analog triggers like the Xbox/Playstation controllers, so if any game needs analog triggers you might not be able to play it with a Switch controller.
