Looks pretty uncomfortable to me. Like it would dig into your palms a bit. It reminds me of the Vita design and that can definitely get tiring to hold for extended periods of time. Having grips/handles makes all the difference for that though, so hopefully it's an optional accessory or something?
Aesthetics aside - I am really not a fan of touch-screen buttons. The games on the App Store that use them are just no good to me, can't play them. It just feels completely off without the physical feeling of buttons.

That's exactly what I thought; that it would jab your palms.
Touch games where you need to swipe objects on a phone, no problem, even a button in an app to do something is fine. But a virtual gamepad button? Nope. Not happening. Nothing like a tactile response on an actual physical controller.
