    Bought my Switch yesterday, everything is fine and dandy - no dead pixels,left joycon connectivity is on par with right one etc. But today I was looking around system settings and when I was turning vibrations on/off fast, I could feel that right joycon has stronger vibrations (by feeling and sound). It's just minor inconvenience but...

    Does anyone else has this "problem" too?

    This isn't a problem, like the PlayStation controllers have different weighs at each rumble motor to make the vibration effect stronger.

    I haven't noticed it on the switch but it's happened to me on many different controllers on different game systems. I think its pretty normal

    I don't think that many people have tested their joycons like you. They play Zelda instead.

    I haven't had that problem. And people saying other controllers do it so it's fine are wrong.
    Older rumble controllers (even modern ones) have a large weight on one side and a small one on the other, which produces that effect. However the joycon do not use the same technology, and should feel identical on both sides

    Exactly! On X360 controller one motor has bigger weight and (probably) lower rpm. As I said its just minor inconvenience and I was just curious if anybody else "suffers" from this issue.

    But another problem arose. ZL button is stiff and doesn't have that springy feeling like the ZR button.

    Ordered tri-wing screwdriver so I can look inside.

    Have you tried holding it in your other hand? Could be your hands have different sensitivity...
