Nintendo Switch, however, is causing some issues we’ve talked about in the past days.

One big problem is related to the left Joy-Con that, according to users reports, keeps desyncing. This happens to bad design.

The left Joy-Con, contrary to the right-one, has an antenna that is part of the circuit board, located near a metal box in an area that gets easily covered by the players’ thumbs.

You can fix this by soldering a copper wire – as showed here – to extend the antenna, having as result a more powerful device.

Another big problem is the blue/orange screen of death.

Many users have reported that, after making a lot of noise, their Nintendo Switch has stopped working and there’s no way to fix it.

At this moment, if you are experiencing this issue, you can only contact your seller and ask for a replacement.

Nintendo Switch is already available worldwide.
