How would one say "There was controversy surrounding the iPhone 7's release"—or more generally that there was controversy surrounding something. The word diskutado, or discussion seems to potentially work, currently I have "Estis diskutado pri la kreaĵo el iPhone 7".

There was controversy surrounding (about) the event.

  • Estis polemiko pri la okazo.

There was controversy because of the event.

  • Estis polemiko pro la okazo.

Controversy happened due to the event.

  • Polemiko okazis pro la okazo.

„diskuto” laŭ mi ne estas sufiĉe forta. Mi dirus:

Estis disputo pri la lanĉo de iPhone 7s.

(Temas pri nur unu litero da diferenco, sed pri tute alia nuanco!)

Alia eblo: La lanĉo de iPhone 7s kaŭzis grandan polemikon.
