What I can say about improvements are, extrude the area behind the buttons, inwards. So that the buttons can be pressed. Now they appear to sit on the shell.

For the joystick area, you could first make a flat circle for the black plastic ring. And then make the joystick from a cylinder and a spere.

Nice progress!
