The Logitech MX Anywhere 2S is a low-profile and travel-friendly mouse with an ambidextrous design that has two reprogrammable side buttons on its left side. It feels very well-built, made out of a solid-feeling plastic with two rubber grips on each side. Its click latency and CPI range might not be good enough for competitive gamers, but it's more than low enough for web browsing and office work. Unfortunately, its small size is only designed for a fingertip grip and it isn't ideal for people with extra-large hands.
The Logitech MX Anywhere 2S is a very good option for the office. Although it's designed for a fingertip grip and it doesn't have the best ergonomics, almost all of its buttons can be remapped for your needs. Also, its scroll wheel has amazing features that make working on long documents easier.
The Logitech MX Anywhere 2S is only okay for FPS gaming. Although its wireless, fingertip grip design would be good for FPS games, its click latency might feel a bit too unresponsive, and the cursor movements might not feel very smooth.
The Logitech MX Anywhere 2S is a decent MMO gaming mouse. The companion software is very good, but it only has two side buttons and its ergonomics might not be the best for long gaming sessions. It also has no RGB lighting.
The Logitech MX Anywhere 2S is available in Graphite, Midnight Teal, and Light Gray. Although we tested the Graphite variant, we expect the other two variants to perform the same.
The Logitech MX Anywhere 2S is very good for office use. Its ergonomics aren't as good as other higher-end office mice especially due to its low-profile design, but its ambidextrous design and its scroll wheel's features are great if you often work with long documents. Also, it's easy to travel with thanks to its small size and its excellent wireless connectivity options.

The Logitech M720 Triathlon is better for office use than the Logitech MX Anywhere 2S, although the MX Anywhere 2S is still a very good option. The M720 feels better built, and its high back makes it suitable for people with small or medium hands if you like using a claw or palm grip. Also, it has a third side button that makes it easier to switch between paired devices. On the other hand, the Anywhere 2S is significantly lighter and smaller, so it should fit in laptop bags and cases much easier.
The Logitech MX Anywhere 3 is better for the most part than the Logitech MX Anywhere 2S. The 3 feels better-built, it's lighter, and it has lower click latency. However, the 2S has more programmable inputs because the scroll wheel has left/right tilt inputs.
The Logitech G305 LIGHTSPEED is a better wireless gaming mouse than the Logitech MX Anywhere 2S, but the Anywhere 2S is designed for office work and travel. The G305 LIGHTSPEED has a much wider CPI range and a lower click latency. However, the MX Anywhere 2S has Bluetooth support, which the G305 lacks.
The Logitech MX Master 3 is a better office mouse than the Logitech MX Anywhere 2S, thanks to its outstanding ergonomics and build quality. Due to its bulky size, the MX Master 3 isn't ideal for travel, but the MX Master 2S is much lighter and smaller and should fit in laptop bags much more easily.
The Logitech MX Master 2S is a better office mouse than the Logitech MX Anywhere 2S. The Master is more ergonomic thanks to its thumb rest, high back, and side scroll wheel for long documents. However, the MX Anywhere 2S is much better for travel because of its small size and lighter weight.
The Logitech MX Anywhere 2S and the Razer Atheris are both good mice, but the Logitech is better for office use, and the Razer is better for gaming. Both mice are small and better suited for fingertip grips. The Logitech scroll wheel has more features than the Razer, but the Razer has a wider CPI range and an adjustable polling rate.
The Logitech MX Anywhere 2S and the Microsoft Sculpt Ergonomic Mouse are both mice designed for productivity and office use; however, the Logitech performs better overall. Its scroll wheel unlocks for free scrolling, and it's Bluetooth compatible. Also, you can adjust its CPI, and its software is available for both Windows and macOS. On the other hand, the Microsoft feels more comfortable thanks to its ergonomic design, and it feels more solidly built than the Logitech.
The Logitech Precision Pro is much better for office use than the Logitech MX Anywhere 2S. The Precision Pro has a higher back and a thumb rest that makes it more comfortable, and it should be more comfortable with a claw or palm grip for people with small or medium hands. Also, it has a third side button that makes it easier to switch between paired devices. On the other hand, the Anywhere 2S is significantly lighter.
The Logitech MX Anywhere 2S is a more versatile travel mouse than the Logitech M535. It connects wirelessly with its USB receiver or via Bluetooth and uses a micro USB cable for recharging. It's well-suited for most hand sizes using a fingertip grip. Unfortunately, it lacks a compartment for its USB receiver. On the other hand, the M535 only connects via Bluetooth and uses two AA batteries. It feels sturdier, and it's significantly lighter but has a low polling rate, a fixed CPI, and sub-par click latency. It's best suited for small and medium-sized hands using a fingertip grip.
The Logitech MX Anywhere 2S and Mad Catz R.A.T. DWS are wireless mice designed for different purposes. The Logitech is a travel-friendly office mouse that's lightweight and low-profile, and its scroll wheel can unlock for free scrolling. On the other hand, the Mad Catz is a wireless gaming mouse with interchangeable parts that change the look and feel of the mouse. Since it's geared towards gaming, it has more programmable buttons, a lower lift-off distance, and a much higher polling rate. It uses an AA battery while the Logitech uses an internal rechargeable one.
The Logitech MX Anywhere 2S is a better travel mouse than the Logitech M525. It's lighter, it feels sturdier and more comfortable, and it connects wirelessly with a USB receiver or via Bluetooth. It also has two side buttons, a scroll wheel that unlocks for free scrolling, and the newest version of Logitech companion software compatible with Windows and macOS. On the other hand, the M525 only connects with a USB receiver, but it has onboard storage space for it when it isn't in use. Both mice are best-suited for fingertip grip with most hand sizes.
The Logitech MX Anywhere 2S is a small, low-profile mouse with a sleek style. It has a logo on the back, but it doesn't light up. Although the side buttons are only on the left side, it has an ambidextrous design with geometric grips on both sides, so holding it should be comfortable whether you're right-handed or left-handed.
Since the mouse is small and wireless, its portability isn't bad, so shouldn't take up much space in your laptop bag. Unfortunately, there's no place to store its USB receiver. If you're looking for an office-oriented mouse with a storage compartment for its USB receiver, check out the Microsoft Sculpt Ergonomic Mouse.
The Logitech MX Anywhere 2S mouse has very good build quality. It's made entirely out of solid plastic with nice rubber grips on each side, although they don't feel as grippy as they should. The side buttons feel a little mushy, but still quite solid. There's a bit of rattle from within, and the scroll wheel wobbles, but that's most likely due to its wheel tilt feature. The Logitech MX Anywhere 3 is the successor to this mouse, and it feels better built.
Due to its small size, the mouse's ergonomics are just okay. It's designed for a fingertip grip, although people with small hands might be able to use it with a claw grip. Also, the rubber texture on each side doesn't feel grippy enough to stop it from slipping. On the upside, the buttons are well-placed and easy to reach. If you'd prefer something with a right-slanted ergonomic shape, check out the Logitech M720 Triathlon or the Logitech Marathon Mouse M705.
This mouse has outstanding wireless connectivity options. It can be used via Bluetooth or with its wireless USB receiver. If your battery is low, you can continue to use it while it's charging. However, you can't use it with just the cable plugged in if it isn't also connected via Bluetooth or with the receiver.
The rubberized cable isn't very flexible, but it doesn't feel cheap.
It has a typical layout with two side buttons on its left side and a button right below the scroll wheel that defaults as a gesture button but can be reprogrammed to another action, such as a middle-click or a CPI switch. You can reprogram all of the buttons except for the left and right click. Unfortunately, there's no way to switch profiles directly from the mouse.
The mouse's laser sensor is slightly off-center, positioned more towards the back. Unlike many modern mice, this one works on glass.
The scroll wheel on the Logitech MX Anywhere 2S is fantastic. The wheel is incremented, and it can be unlocked for infinite scrolling by pressing down the wheel until you hear a click. Although it wobbles a little, it's most likely due to its wheel tilt feature that can be programmed to perform various actions.
The Logitech Options software lets you customize all the buttons except for the left- and right-click buttons, and you can also adjust the CPI to your preference. The software also allows you to create profiles for specific software that are loaded when that software is opened, but you can't create multiple profiles for the same software.
