Most of the reviews have said that portable mode is great and the screen looks good games play well. But when you switch it to console mode on the TV the mobile processor has a hard time outputting a 1080p single to the TV at a and starts having slowdown and frame rate issues. In Zelda the frame rate drops a lot in console mode.

Seems to be a worry if it can't handle being played on the TV that well.

No one is saying the console itself has frame rate issues, but they do say Zelda does.

This. Because Zelda wasn't made ground up for the Switch.

Wow talk about misinformation! Question is: are you doing this on purpose or are you just clueless?

This, no one has said anything about a single game having framerate issues besides Zelda. And quite a few have been sampled. I am more chalking it up to being basically a port of the Wii U version, but we will see what the future holds. I have played plenty games with framerate issues that were downright amazing games.

Pretty sure Fast RMX is pretty not slow.
Troll or hater getting you down? Don't worry. Just know that they force themselves to do what they do because of either jealous or envy of what you like.

That's mainly just Zelda though. I'm sure Mario Kart 8 would have no problems with frame rate.

Honestly, this is the biggest sticking point for me. Why do people have to care so much about occasioal framerate dips when they don't happen that often in the very grand scheme of the playtime? People are just way too demanding these days, and unforgiving of any slights. Has it always been this way?

That is dependent on the games.
