The Logitech G703 is the most top-notch mouse in the brand’s line-up. The Logitech g703 is a fully wireless ergonomic mouse. Just like Logitech G403, this mouse too has a minimalistic design and more similar physical features as the Logitech G403 but the main difference lies in what’s inside.

Let me explain a little bit, imagine you’re using a wireless mouse and while you’re in the middle of an intense match and trying to clutch the game, your mouse’s battery runs out. Heartbreaking, isn’t it? Well, to deal with this problem, Logitech has made a feature called the Powerplay, where the mouse although being wireless, keeps on charging throughout it’s usage, this is made possible because of the mouse pad which is plugged into a power source and is equipped with a mechanism for wireless charging, hence the Logitech G703 could be charged while using it, although the charging speed won’t be the same like charging via the USB but you will be free of the hassles of the cables.

The Logitech G403 and the Logitech G703 both are exclusive gaming mice built for hardcore gamers, but different people have different choices and needs and one needs a through comparison to decide which suits them the most, while the Logitech G703 has the most high-end features, it’s price is much higher than the Logitech G403 and the powerplay feature might be considered an overkill for the non-professional gaming enthusiasts. Meanwhile the Logitech G703 being heavier could also pose a serious problem to those customers who prefer lightweight mice. The Logitech G403 might be considered a better option but these have some cons too, the button placement of both Logitech G403 and Logitech G703 are not for left-handed users, hence these users might want to look for other options available in the market. The Logitech G403 uses penultimate sensors and they can cause a bit of delay in registering the response, although the wireless model of Logitech G403 uses the same sensors as the Logitech G703, so it may be a better choice. . Also, the Logitech G403 both wired and wireless have been tested to deliver 20 million clicks while the Logitech G703 has been tested to deliver a whooping 50 million clicks, so you can be sure that no matter which mouse you choose, it is going to be with you for a long time.

Nonetheless, Nonetheless, both the mice have set-up a benchmark in the gaming hardware industry and are even used by top gaming professionals throughout the globe and their efficiency can’t be neglected.
