Sony's D-pads are the best hands down! The separation makes it most accurate of use and the best for fighting games when using a controller.
I have the Switch Pro controller and it works fine, not the best compared to Sony's but I dont really have any complaints with it.
I knew the Joycons dpad were completly underrated !!
Btw, I largely prefer classic + dpad like the one on my 3DS or WiiU Pro controller. Also to be honest, you might have to be masochistic to like the Dpad arrowed on the DS4, never liked the way it clicked when you press it.
