Features

The MX Master 2S is powered by the Logitech Flow software which lets you connect to multiple devices. You can dynamically switch to another PC via the provided button at the bottom and this is great when you want to use the same mouse for multiple devices, for example, the same mouse can be used on the laptop when it’s connected to the desktop.

Pairing isn’t an issue, the MX Master 2S lets you pair up to three computers the 2.4 GHz receiver or Bluetooth. You can choose either connectivity option as per your need, both technologies work with the Flow.

The thumb scroll wheel can be used for horizontal scrolling as well as can be assigned for volume control, Next or Previous while playing music, increase or decrease brightness, as well as used for switching applications, tabs, or simply zoom.

The mouse also features a laser sensor that works on any flat surface even a glass. It has as much as 4,000 DPI for high precision sensitivity. The DPI range starts from 200 with increments of 50 up to 4000 DPI.

Battery Life

Moving to the battery life of the mouse, it comes with a built-in rechargeable battery worth 500 mAh that lasts long about 70 days on a single charge. Charging can be done via a micro USB cable provided in the box. Logitech says a 3-minute charging is enough to last an entire day.

While it works on Bluetooth as well as the 2.4 GHz technology, the latter results in a longer lasting battery, Bluetooth connectivity is preferably a better option if using on Laptops since it uses low power whereas the 2.4 GHz using the receiver appears to be more accurate but consumes a little more battery compared to the Bluetooth Low Energy connection.

Verdict

The Logitech MX Master 2S is aimed for productive power users and offers a premium experience with its design and comprehensive features including the laser sensor that works on the glass, its high 4000 DPI sensitivity for accuracy, multiple buttons as well as dual scroll wheels, and the ability to connect to multiple platforms wirelessly.

How much is the mouse worth? It holds a premium price tag, but if you are looking for a mouse that offers great design, comfort, and top-notch features, this is the mouse for you.
