Wireless gaming mice have proven that their performance and speed have nothing to envy to wired mice, and this is even more true if we talk about the two top-of-the-range models from Logitech, the G903 and the G Pro . Today we are going to make a technical comparison between these two wireless gaming mice in order to discern which of the two is the best option, who do you think will win?
The Logitech G903 was for a long time Logitech’s top of the line, integrating all the technology that many years of experience has brought to a renowned Logitech manufacturer. However, not too long ago they launched the Logitech G Pro as a new flagship, a mouse that despite its minimalist and simple design incorporates all the brand’s technology under the hood. There is no doubt that both mice are an excellent option for those gamers looking for the comfort of having a wireless mouse, but if you have to choose, the ideal is to buy them, right?
Logitech G903 vs Logitech G Pro, technical comparison
We are going to start by putting the technical specifications of these two wireless gaming mice face to face, so that we have a panoramic view of the parameters that each of them handles together.

As we can see, both mice incorporate the brand’s excellent HERO 25K sensor , so they share the same minimum and maximum sensitivity as well as their maximum acceleration and speed; In this regard, both mice should have the same performance and performance, so the differences between the two should be found in the additional features. Similarly, both mice have a maximum sampling rate of 1,000 Hz and a response time of 1 ms.
Both mice also have an ambidextrous symmetrical design, making them suitable for left-handed and right-handed users alike; In addition, both mice have a removable side button system, which means that we can also modify the number of buttons and their location (for example, if we only want it to have buttons on one of the sides, we can do it, just like that if we want both sides to have keypad). We do find a substantial difference here and that is that the G903 has three more buttons than the G Pro, essentially the two located at the top for sensitivity change (but they are equally configurable) and the button that activates the infinite scroll.
Speaking of the scroll, here we also find a fundamental difference between both mice and that is that the G903 has a 4D scroll (which in addition to up and down has horizontal scrolling) and with the infinite scroll functionality that can be easily activated through a simple button on the top, something the Logitech G Pro lacks since its scroll wheel is simple and traditional.
For now we have a two to zero for the G903 with respect to the Logitech G Pro, and the 3-0 is guaranteed by the battery life , since the G903 has 140 hours of autonomy even with the RGB lighting on while the G Pro only provides 48 hours of autonomy with the lighting on, and even with this off it only gives 60 hours of autonomy which is still less than half.
Where the Logitech G Pro does win over the Logitech G903 is in terms of weight ; the G903 weighs 110 grams on its own, and has a 10 gram weight for users who want heavier mice, reaching 120 g in total. For its part, the G Pro does not have a weight customization system but it is only 80 grams, making it one of the lightest wireless gaming mice with an integrated battery on the market, if not the most. Three to one for the G903.
Finally, we have to assess the price , where we also find differences. The official sale price in the Logitech online store is 155 euros for the G903 for 135 euros for the G Pro, a difference of 20 euros between one and the other. However, since the G903 is a mouse that has been on the market for a few years while the G Pro is relatively new, it is quite common to find the first at reduced prices while the second is rarely seen on sale, although it is It is true that when it is, its price is still lower than that of the G903. For a sample, here are the reference prices on Amazon Spain.
In any case, in terms of price, the point is taken by the Logitech G Pro because it is cheaper than the G903 both in terms of the original price and the price when both are on sale (simply taking into account that the G903 is almost always on sale). offer while the G Pro only sometimes).
Conclusion: which mouse is better or more recommended?
As we said at the beginning, both mice are an excellent choice and are actually pretty close (as a final result it was a 3 to 2 for the G903). They both have the same sensor and the same performance technically speaking, but while the G903 offers a greater number of customization options, infinite 4D scroll, and longer battery life, the G Pro is much lighter and cheaper too.
We would tell you therefore that the G903 is more recommended for gamers “a bit of everything” who seek greater customization and battery life, while the G Pro, thanks to its lightness, would be more recommended for gamers who play mostly to FPS (first person shooting) and eSports type titles, since being lighter allows faster movements and producing less fatigue in prolonged gaming sessions.
In any case, buy the mouse you buy, you will not go wrong because both are excellent matches in terms of wireless gaming mice, and neither of them will disappoint you whatever you use them for. Therefore, we would not say that one is better than the other, they are simply mice designed for different types of use, so the choice between one and the other is up to you.
