    Hello,
    I noticed that my left joycon is a bit wobbly when it's connected to the switch. Nothing very wabbly, but definitely not as stable as the right joycon.
    Also, I noticed that the left joycon doesn't go low as the right one when it is attached (not easy to notice, I'm talking about 0.1mm)
    I am just wondering that's normal or if I have to send my switch back to Nintendo in order to repair/replace it.

    Thank you

    .1mm? Can you even see that with the naked eye?

    Most likely I'm wrong about the 0.1mm. What I mean is that there is a very small difference. What I am more worried is the wobbly of the left joycon. Has anybody else noticed the same thing?

    EDIT: After re-attaching the left joycon with a bit more pressure, it seems fine. The small difference I was telling before, seems to be normal (I think the right joycon seems a bit longer because of the sensor at the bottom).

    Make sure the Joyless Con is completely snapped into place. There is naturally a small amount of flex but it should not wobble. Make sure the screws are tight. Look at some YouTube reviews to see if yours wobbles more that review units, if it does exchange at store if possible or contact Nintendo.

    I can confirm abit of tape on the inner of the joycon stops the looseness
