Most single-stack sub-compact handguns have long triggers and equally long resets. The XDS has a shorter Glock/XDM style trigger with a more positive reset than either (for those of us who like to ride the reset when shooting).
In my opinion there are only three guns in the category of sub-compact, single-stack handguns with good triggers and low felt recoil: the Shield, the PPS, and the XDS.
I haven't actually had the chance to shoot an XDS, but every time I talk to someone who has they mention how surprisingly low the recoil is.
