    It's a feature /s
    Jokes aside, it's a known problem since day one. Doesn't seem to cause any problem.

    It's slightly bent like mine. Seems like they come this way from the factory. It's so slight that it doesn't really matter though.

    Yeah. I've seen some really bad bends, but most likely those were not like that from the factory as they would not pass visual inspection. Even if you were to send it in for repair they might send you back another Switch with the same type of bend, like I've seen happen to other people. Not really worth the hassle of possibly having to send it in for repair multiple times IMO.

    Same. I was going to, but didn't want to be without the Switch for possibly weeks, and now it's too late. It hasn't bothered me enough to do anything about it but still bothers me a little.

    I hear Plasti-X can fill in light scratches, it's worth a shot. Probably won't last forever though.

    Nintendo made a booboo with the dock. Not only that it scratches your switch it also traps heat which can cause bent and warped switches.

    Leave the side panel open if you're worried about heat. My phone gets just as warm as the Switch though so I don't think it's an issue.
