That's awesome! Maybe some 3rd parties will make dock replacement covers. Didn't know removing it was so easy.

My phone is a Moto Z Force. I think there's a dock for it. Might even fit the Switch...

 

Edit: found this-- USB Type C Charger Dock, TopAce Desk Charger Station for Google Pixel XL / Sony Xperia XZ / Asus / LG G5 / ZTE Axon 7 / Oneplus 3 / Moto Z Play and Other Type-C Devices (Black) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01N49AWG2/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_g7.VybMCC91K0

 

Not sure about the width, though. However there are a ton of USB C docks to choose from.

I also saw another power bank that is also a stand: https://www.amazon.com/10400mAh-Charger-External-Battery-Desktop/dp/B0196CF3BS/

... not sure how well it charges with the Switch. I think it comes from China since it has a lot of clones.

Want some "My Nintendo" points for your game purchase?

Highlight your game and press the "+" button. You'll be able to get points for the My Nintendo Rewards Program.

What can you do with these points? Who knows?

That NeoGAF post about scratching the screen is interesting. Apparently the guy docked and removed the system repeatedly and at different angles without scratching it, so he suspects that people who got scratches damaged the system on purpose.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Apparently he did get some minor scratches after further rough dockings: http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1349599&page=68

Only confirms what he suspected. One has to try to scratch the screen to get results.

But even if people were still worried about scratches due to the dock, executing the process carefully doesn't take more than three seconds.

These are pretty neat, tagging!

Will need to look more into the screen scratching issue now :/
