I bought the original Xbox One on launch day back in 2013, ended up selling the console 2 years later. While I did enjoy some of its games, the console itself felt very clunky. Simple tasks like traversing the dashboard felt kinda cumbersome. I heard the S model improves this, how is it true?

I'm picking it up again to enjoy some games, and I don't care about visual performance that much to justify an One X. Don't even own a 4K TV.

Thanks for any inputs!

It is definitely smaller and easier to transport if necessary. I really like the fact that the power button on S console can be pushed, unlike the original XB1 which easily can be touched and system comes on or off.

It has slightly stronger hardware specs. So things like the dash run smoother, and games load faster. Not entirely sure, but from what I recall reading, there is something like a 10% performance increase over the base model. Not enough for games to take advantage of it, but enough for the dash and UI to run smoother because of it.
Triggered fanboys,make the internet go round. In the most disgusting way
