I waited until Animal Crossing was announced to buy a switch. And although I don't regret my purchase, it's rather frustrating that the display on my console went dark within a week. Turns out Nintendo used a different manufacturer for the animal crossing switches, and some other users are also reporting the screen going black and not working in handheld mode.
Called Nintendo and their repair centres are currently closed due to the pandemic. I understand that they had to switch manufacturers, but that doesn't mean the quality of their product should be less compared to their usual standard.
