    You can actually make popcorn by placing the corn between the joycons and an aquarium, wich is good since you can also melt your butter directly on the sweetch!
    Thanks BigN! :)

    Just about every console and most phones get warmer than Switch, so it must be the god device. Warps the very space and time around it.

    I can confirm my switch melts the very fabric of time. History as we know it should brace.

    What stresses me, is that you might have warped in time a couple of time and know more then us, normal humans. So maybe you know way more then us about the afterlife and our futur but still, you stay there like an hyppocrite without saving us from ourself.. please...please make earth good again..

    I never trust anything from reddit. I remember a redditor once said they bought a 3DS on 11.3 the very same day the update was released.

    From what i gather he applied the tempered glass and didn't wait enough for the glue to set... I think this might just be user's fault.

    I doubt that the switch can generate such heat to reach the melting point of plastics, if it did the first thing that gonna give is the battery exploding lols.

    Inside your miiind, and poof.
    I swear that subreddit is owned by Nintendo... In the days of the CrowbCat video they took down my post, tbh 90% of my negative comments have been taken down in that subreddit.

    Is that guy really that dumb as to not know it's just the adhesive pulling away and not the actual glass melting? Ppl are reaching hard to find any flaw they can. I don't own one. I think early adoption is stupid imo. The switch obviously has some annoying design flaws. That aside, These people are ignoring basic mental capacity and hope you will too in order to bring unwarranted negative attention to the system.

    True that it's a risk buying the first version of any product but if nobody buys it how will the company survive to make it better and release a v2.0? If you like something you should support it so it gets better.

    I pirate a lot of software but if I like something I buy it and support the developer, otherwise how are they going to afford to keep making the software better?

    Your statement makes no sense to me imho.

    I agree with you, but for Nintend it doesnt apply at all.
    They have far enough to survive for the next 10years even if they wouldnt release anything lol..

    In the end there are two sides:
    -people like you who think the extra effort is suppose to come from us, like testers..
    And
    -people who realize that for the price of the console and the reputation of the co, they owe to deliver a product that goes with the current generation, but honestly with the switch, it feels like a console right after Gamecube.

    The truth is, with the switch they ditched the quality of the product and released it before its ready (they redone the design of the switch completly in 1 year, wich wasnt suppose in the first place..) But still, they sell it higher then supposed..
    Its not necessarly expensive, but when you pay the price, you expect quality.

    melt lol.....
    Air bubble or bad glue from the screen protector.
    The switch doesnt get hot enough to melt anything. Plus the heat comes out the top of the system not the screen.
    I really hate how someone blows things up and then all these people start saying how bad things are when its just one dumb person.
    MY phone has gotten hotter and it never melted any screen protector.
    MY screen protector (nintendo one) is 100% fine. I did get 1 small fiber under it but other then that it has held just find
