Xbox controllers have a lot of issues with the sticks,buttons that were made cheap the newer ones are supposedly better to fix this but I have not seen it. My first one what I used wired started to shift and had this problem not wanting to accept inputs until it died. I got a replacement same thing happened within 5 months.

I was told to try the S controller as that fixes the issues somewhat but it also broke as well just the other day. Wish they were built more like the 360 that was more durable than these ones.

Mine has started double tapping buttons, but only over bluetooth. I'm thinking about getting the acutual usb adapter when the revised version comes out.

I had problems with the S controller crashing cerain games and locking up to the point i had to do control alt del my PC and had to restart it. I have no idea what was causing it but i just went back to the 360 controller and i have been fine ever since. I have 4 of them and 2 are still new in the box.

My S controller has worked flawlessly, but I do have it plugged in via usb so it maybe a bluetooth issue.

Not sure why you would use bluetooth when you could use this

Just get a wired 360 controller for like $15 - $20. Problem solved.

Because official xbox one s controllers go on sale for less than that?
Because tons of computers have BT built in?
Because 3rd party controllers almost universally have terrible analog sticks?
Because you're more than 3 meters from your computer?
Should I go on?

You forgot:
The money would be better spent on the actual Wireless dongle for the Xbox Controller.
Even I'm not crazy enough to believe that distortion of reality

Just get the wireless dongle. BT truly does suck for XBONE controllers. I used mine that way for a long time until I broke the dongle. I had one from Asus that was considered the most compatible with game controllers. It wasn't terrible, but it would get flaky from time to time. When I broke it I got the MS wireless adapter and have had zero connectivity issues since. The only time I experience problems like you are having is when my batteries are about to die. That invader in the Parish last night probably wondered why I was twitching around like trippin' raver while he backstabbed me last night.
