We have all had the experience of trying to use an electronic just to find it does not function as it should. In fact, there are even reports that explain why electronics misfunction so often.

To evaluate which are the most malfunctioning electronics, blog Electronics Hub developed a complaint detection tool to analyze tweets mentioning popular tech products.

They then proceeded to give each gadget a score according to how many tweets featured a complaint about the specific tech product.

The most complained about gaming consoles were the Xbox Series X with a 12.5 percent rating and the Xbox One with a 12.1 percent rating. Electronics Hub did however mention that most of the complaints were actually about not being able to find these products since they were out of stock! Does that count as a positive tweet and not a complaint?
