    I have a Switch and love playing on it but the dock is just horrible. I mean, if you don't have a tempered glass screen protector it scratches the screen but the other issue is that the dock is too big.
    I bought a mini dock which should be arriving next week, hopefully. And the official one? Sell it on eBay/Amazon.
    The cons of the mini dock is that it only has one USB port but no biggie.

    I hear that the frame rate and resolution decreases when in portable mode so it won't really look at it's best as compared to docked mode.

    I dont know why companies do this... they should always be smart and listen very very veeeeery carefully to what the consumer wants...

    In my eyes the consumer is God! :D

    I want to consider getting an xbox one it looks awesome! ;)

    But after seeing how nicely the switch operates and has some epic games to boot I am wondering if is better now...

    I brought a switch last week for Xmas as it was on offer for £208, I've set it up and briefly played a Rayman demo. Seems quite cool, controls are good.

    Having been fully aware of the issues I was worried about docking it and was very careful. Even so it marked the screen instantly!! The marks would not rub off, but a little polish got them off. I now have a screen protector on it from Orzly.

    What is this mini dock your talking about boss? Have you seen any of the warping of the dock?

    Looking forward to playing tho, especially with Doom and Wolfenstien coming out.

    The pic archived shows how the mini dock is, it's so small you can put it inside your trousers' pockets. 😙
    This is available on eBay and Aliexpress for £14-15 and I'd say it's well worth it, given that it works as it should.

    Thanks boss. After having a little look around I get the feeling these mini docks only charge and do not allow a TV connection?

    They allow a TV connection via HDMI.

    I already ordered one of those £14 mini dock station's so no way I'd spend £30-40 for it. In that case, I'd just keep the big piece of plastic by Nintendo.
