[gamesradar.com] Nintendo Switch can warp from being left in the dock too long - Page 5

The switch was rushed out. From issues with the left joy con, systems glitching up and freezing, screen scratching, Nintendo saying dead pixels are ok on a new system, to now the system heating and warping itself due to the maxwell chip. If the rumors are true about Nintendo not waiting for the Pascal chip which runs much cooler, I can see systems eventually cooking themselves as a result of this.

It's almost like a few people having problems isn't representative of everyone's experiences with that product.

Similarly, a few people not having problems also isn't representative of everyone's experiences with that product.

I think every device released now needs a Bendgate hate train within the first week from 1 users experience. Every will go ZOMG IT WARPS???? and then short realize that its not a problem unless you did it yourself, or the 0.001% of devices sold.

I'm not a fan of the switch, but I do hate click bait nonsense. I am intrigued to see how relevant this issue actually becomes because this is something that they really needed to account for in this mobile design choice (Heat dissipation is always a huge issue with mobile devices).

I also wonder when people are going to realize that the person who started this (that had such a severe warping issue) literally had his dock on top of a receiver that was running while he was playing. Receivers create a TON of heat, and he was setting his Switch & dock on that major heat source. His level of warping can literally be attributed to pure stupidity.

Asking people to be responsible? They'd rather blame the company and then try to start a baseless class action lawsuit.

I feel it may have something to do with the power button placement. If it doesn't affect the console it doesn't really matter but maybe pushing the power button when the thing is docked stresses the left side because it's held in only by the usb port when it's on the dock. Mine in't warping

This rumor has still yet to be independently confirmed in any way so far as I can tell. I just wish Nintendo had made a home-only version of the Switch without portability of any kind. I know that would conflict with the branding but I hate to pay for features like an IPS screen and the removable Joycons when all I want to do is play Zelda at home on my TV. But oh well...
