These two lightweight gaming mice, the Razer DeathAdder V3 Pro and the Logitech G Pro X Superlight are being compared today. I recently opened and reviewed the Razer Death Adder V3 Pro and noticed some similarities with the white G Pro X super light in terms of the mouse’s appearance and functionalities.
However, it would be worthwhile to compare the two, showcasing them side by side and outlining the differences. There are some noticeable differences, some very slight ones that you won’t notice immediately, and some that are concealed within the specifications.

Logitech G Pro X Superlight vs Razer DeathAdder V3 Pro: Design
The G Pro X Superlight weighs about 63 grams, and the Death Adder V3 Pro weighs almost the same but varies in weight depending on the color you choose, which is an interesting fact. Similarly, they are pretty comparable in terms of size.
The DeathAdder V3 Pro has an interesting setup with the buttons on the side, so they’re larger and higher up than they were on the V2 Pro. And they’re also larger than they are on the G Pro X Superlight, so the side buttons are a bit easier to access. But when you get the two side by side, you’ll notice that the Deathadder V3 Pro is slightly larger. It sits a little bit higher off the desk.
Logitech G Pro X Superlight vs Razer DeathAdder V3 Pro: Battery Life & Connectivity
The DeathAdder V3 Pro uses a USB-C charging capability, which gives it a respectable battery life of up to 90 hours versus the 70 hours with the G pro X Superlight. However, the battery life you get will vary from Mouse to Mouse. Here you can see a side-by-side comparison.
You’ll notice that both come with grip tape. For example, both also support 2.4 gigahertz wireless connectivity, obviously with each of the company’s Wireless technology.
Now, if you look at the underside, you’ll also notice that the G Pro X Superlight has quite a bit more PTFE(Polytetrafluoroethylene), which is something to keep in mind. You’ll also notice that the G Pro X Superlight uses micro USB and that both come with a dongle and an extender adapter that you can place near the mouse if you need it.
Logitech G Pro X Superlight vs Razer DeathAdder V3 Pro: Buttons
The G Pro X Superlight and the DeathAdder V3 Pro are very similar in the number of buttons, the visuals on them, and other features. The DeathAdder V3 Pro only has a DPI (Dots Per Linear Inch) button on the underside, and you’ll see that it also has five total programmable buttons.
The G Pro X Superlight uses mechanical switches. In contrast, the DeathAdder V3 Pro uses razer’s gen 3 optical switches, so in theory, the switches on the DeathAdder will last longer, they should actuate more precisely and respond better, and it also has a better setup.
Logitech G Pro X Superlight vs Razer DeathAdder V3 Pro: Features
It’s also nice to have LED indicators on both mice to let you know when your battery is running low. You can see them on the front of the DeathAdder V3 Pro and behind the mouse buttons on the G Pro X Superlight.
Considering the specifications, there is a significant difference between it and the first model, which has specs of 25,600 DPI on the ultra-light 40 Gs Max acceleration and 400 IPS. You can also upgrade the DeathAdder V3 Pro with a hyper-polling dongle, giving you a polling rate of 4,000 Hertz over Wireless.
You’ll see that they aren’t traditional gaming mice because neither has RGB lighting, partly due to the need to preserve battery life. The DeathAdder V3 Pro is less agitated and easier to handle than the V2 Pro because it doesn’t flare out as much.
Logitech G Pro X Superlight vs Razer DeathAdder V3 Pro: Grip Tape
Now that you’ve added grip tape to the box, both mice have it. It was applied to the G Pro X Superlight as well. You’ll notice that it has a slightly snake-like texture on the DeathAdder, whereas the G Pro X Superlight version is somewhat smoother.
However, with the addition of the grip tape, only 1/2 grams were added to either of the mice, making it not particularly heavy. To be clear, how well you respond to it will vary depending on how sweaty or oily your hands become, but in my experience, I don’t think it’s 100% necessary to apply it. Instead, I think it’s worth trying without seeing how you feel about it.
I like the aesthetic the Razer grip tape adds to the DeathAdder V3 Pro, though, as it gives it a slightly more aggressive and dangerous snake-like appearance. You can see some of the sorts of subtle differences between them. Compared to the G Pro X Superlight, which has a much more understated design.
The G Pro X Superlight is slightly smoother and has a smaller, rounder, more compact frame that sticks out more.
A lot of people trust the G Pro X Superlight and many people will tell you that it’s pretty awesome I like it too, so I don’t get the impression that it’s not a good Mouse, but if you’re looking for a slightly larger one than The G Pro X Superlight then the DeathAdder V3 Pro may well be it.
