    did it properly "click" in place? im not talking about the click sound coming from the speakers but the actual hardware making that click sound..otherwise, nope, no issues with mine.. or you are talking about syncing issues? i kinda did once.. but didnt happen again..

    No, they feel like they're one unit with the console, very solid. Could be result of rough delivery (to you or your store) or slotting on straps backward maybe?

    Well, probably not rough delivery because they're detached in delivery.

    must be just the Joy-Con(R) itself..i'd be too annoyed if my joy-con isn't tight..hopefully you could return and replace it? have you got any other joy-cons (R) to test?

    I have the grey model and the right one has a bit of play for sure. I used my friends red and blue model and there was none, so I wonder if this is just happening to the grey ones?

    I see a few people have this maybe it's got abit of play due for a reason it doesn't detract from the experience just wanted to see if others had this

    I too have it in my left gray joycon. Nothing that detracts from the experience, but it's there.

    Maybe it's normal then maybe a manufacturing tolerance

    I think it is only the grey joycons, or so it seems, I have not heard of the red/blue ones being wobbly.
