I had it multiple times on the left joycon, even died because of it once. I hold it about 1m away from the dock that sits in front of me on the table.

Yes, quite a few times they stop responding. Sometimes the direction i was pressing seems to get stuck and i need to change position just for them to react. It's pretty annoying and it only happens when playing in docked mode. I prefer playing in handheld mode but unfortunately i have no way to charge it and play at the same time :/

On a good note though, i'm enjoying zelda quite a bit and i've never liked any of the previous games in the series, so yeah... some silver lining there

If your joycons are giving you issues, please make use of the warranty and have Nintendo replace them. Do NOT let Nintendo off easy on this.

 

I feel quite passionate about this issue myself and if my joy-cons aren't functioning properly, I am going to hound Nintendo firmly until the issue is resolved.

Nintendo isn't worth the hassle. My time is worth more than some flimsy plastic controllers. Getting the pro controller soon anyway.

Fair enough. It's a matter of principle for me.

Considering I already gave Nintendo 470€ of my hard earned money, making them replace the joycons isn't really getting them back. I also doubt the issues will be resolved. It seems like an inherent issue due to cheap hardware.

I agree in theory, but nintendo of europe is infamous for not giving a fuck.

 

I was aware this would probably be an issue from previous reports. Im more disappointed with not being able to charge while playing in handheld mode. I really had no intention to play on the tv, but oh well



When I was setting up the system last night, I found that the left Joycon in particular was much more sensitive to the right side of it being covered and not directly facing the console. I watched a video before the Switch launch that gave a pretty decent explanation for why the Joycons may become less responsive, but Nintendo really should have focused on giving them a much stronger signal than they actually have considering a human hand is enough to basically destroy the signal from controller to console.

Considering the ridiculous effective range in current bluetooth capable devices like the iPhone 7, I find it strange that Nintendo seems to have gone with a vastly inferior method of signal transmission.

I'd still do it if just to spite them. I'll be doing it if the issue is intolerably bad. I'll ride the warranties to a pair of joycons with better hardware.

I hear they each have about a 20 hour battery life so not too bad, I imagine.

Just reading this pisses me off. I should hold off from ranting though since I have yet to try them myself.



Nice to see it good for most people

No problems so far.




Nope works perfectly for me



Joycon have been flawless so far.  zero issues.  color me impressed and expecting great things from it in the future

Lots of potential

System is really nice tech and quality build minus the kickstand, which is meh, but serves its purpose.
