Different than OEM, but better!

I didn't want to spend twice as much on the charging grip, and I don't think that I would have used the charging function anyway. I purchased this grip instead, and I am very pleased with it.
The centre section is slightly wider, but only by a couple of millimetres. The handles are a bit thicker and have a slight bend in them, which makes them fit into my hands more comfortably. I have average-sized male hands. I don't find the OEM grip uncomfortable, but I do find this grip slightly more comfortable. The underside also had a rubbery feel, which is nice.
The only small criticism that I can think of is that the rails are plastic instead of metal. But the joy-cons slide in easily and I don't see the plastic becoming a problem. It seems sturdy enough. Also, the release button is in a little bit of a tight spot, but I don't have any issues pressing it easily.
I have included some photos of this grip with a side-by-side comparison with the OEM grip. This grip is on the left of each photo.
