A:AnswerThe Pro Controller doesn't come with some of the obscure freatures that the Joy Cons have, but it does have HD Rumble, an NFC Reader (for Amiibos), and apparently the battery last twice as long as the Joy Cons (the Joy Cons being 20 hours, and the Pro Controller being 40 hours), along with some other features. The Pro Controller is more comfortable and more accurate then the Joy Cons. You can especially see the difference between the controllers when playing a game like Splatoon 2 that has an emphasis on accurate shooting. Overall the Joy Cons are more casual, and the Pro Controller is more hardcore. Another little bonus is the wire that comes with the Pro Controller. The Pro Controller charges uses the same wire that charges the Switch, so you don't have to take part your Switch dock whenever you need a protable charger for your Switch.
A:AnswerI know that there's a controller calibration in the settings but that is for the sticks. I'd say if you use the d-pad in a game and it responds in all directions you have a working pad. Its not like its pressure sensitive, so its all or nothing with the pad.
Mine hasn't given me any grief and I've used the daylights out of it and I can be pretty abusive to my gear.
A:AnswerThe Nintendo Pro Controller can be used whether the Switch is operating handheld, on a stand, or docked. Just like with the Joy-cons, you can simply choose which controller is paired in which player position. Happy gaming!
