    There's other problems people have, but I haven't had any of the ones described.

    Another problem ppl seem to have is joycon reception, but that all depends on how far away you play from your Switch.

    Maybe you can add multi select?

    You should add an option.

    Yes, and had no faults, yet.

    You can always switch to your Wii U if you have any problems.

    That is what I meant with the first option. Unfortunately I can't edit it now to make it clear.

    Yeah, then you can have more frame drops in BotW, and at a cap of 720p. ^_^

    I believe moderators can edit polls, so I suggest reporting the original post and requesting the option to be changed, if you wish.

    That said, I picked the first option. I've been playing pretty heavily since Friday on mine, mostly docked, and have had no issues with connectivity or anything else so far.

    Set my system up and have 20hrs in Zelda. No faults although admittedly im using a pro controller and tv only. Verified switch screen has no dead pixels and the hour or so used in handheld mode had no problems.
    My screen did get the two smudges from the dock that I had to wipe off vigorously and then I went and got a screeen protector.

    Set up my friends and he has no problems.

    That's circumventing a problem, not fixing it.
