While I'm very impressed with the ATV4K on a number of fronts, it isn't perfect.
You mentioned before when I asked if anyone else noticed a green tint in dark sections of a certain title (that mostly isn't there on another device) that basically the last place I should be suspecting an issue was with the ATV.
I've had it 48 hours now, give or take, inserted into 2 completely different systems for testing, and the remote has gone unresponsive for a minute or sometimes 3 before returning to normal on about 3 occasions. And one apparent freeze (can't be certain it was frozen, but if it was the remote going unresponsive it went over 5 minutes) that required a power cycle.
But that's the bad. The good is most everything else (and there is a lot of everything else) works nicely so far!
The remote design is just a preference thing - it isn't bad if you like it, but it is bad if you don't. It isn't broken (except for the unresponsiveness...) and it does some cool things (none of which I need, but lots of other users do, and like - so that's good).
It's not a big deal - none of it in my opinion is a deal breaker, as some of my issues may likely be due to me changing settings frequently or it will be fixed in an update, but stuff just isn't perfect - even if it's designed by apple.
Hardware + software = almost certain issues, somewhere. Maybe minor, maybe rare, and maybe you haven't experienced them, but somebody else just might.
