The system is great for those on the go that want the better battery life and great games. I’ve got a launch console and purchased this with the intent of keeping this as the “primary” console and my original one as my home console.
In case you’re wondering the differences are as follows:
-screen and console are smaller in size and weight
-battery is longer lasting
-joy-cons aren’t detachable, they’re built into the system, which means no HD rumble, no IR sensor either
-not able to be docked, this is a portable only system, but it runs the entire switch library as long as it doesn’t require the system to be docked
That said, if this is a travel only supplement or you never play your system docked, this is the Switch for you. If you need the “switch” part of the switch, and want the freedom to detach the controllers and play the game on a tv, then buy the larger version (just make sure it’s the all red box version as that’s the one with the new battery and more efficient chipset like the lite).
It all began when my son got a bad grade on a test. I had possession of his Original Nintendo Switch. I did what any self-respecting parent (who owned the NES as a child) would do... I played it. My son was set to come off punishment days before the release date... so what’s a mom to do?
I already own an OG Switch, but with Nintendo's decision to only allow one island per console for the upcoming Animal Crossing title, they were able to squeeze out a little extra money from me.
I was on the fence about the Lite, but ultimately decided the turquoise version was the way to go. Transferring my save data and downloaded games were an easy enough process. Plus I'm still able to play on my original Switch, so there's no issues with swapping gameplay between the two.
Battery life certainly seems better, but I tend to keep my system plugged in at all times, so it's a bit of a moot point with me. Graphically I think games look better on the Lite than in handheld mode on the full-size Switch, which is definitely a plus.
The only potential downside is if it ever gets joycon drift, since I'd have to send in the whole system. Fingers crossed it doesn't happen, lol.
All in all, I'd say the Lite is definitely worth picking up...but I'd treat it more as a secondary system; I still rate the "big brother" Switch as the best one to buy.
Absolutely love the look and feel of this Nintendo switch lite, Well built and quality feel in the hands. Battery life is way better than the original switch and much more firm feeling. Definitely worth the price tag and great job, Nintendo!
Such great hardware, slick & easy to use. Battery life isn't that great though. It lasts, for me, about 2 to 3 hours when I play Zelda but I learned with a adjusted brightness it could last another hour. The system is very smooth as well & can slip out of your hands if you aren't careful but a good grip for the Lite can help that. Overall a great system.
Switch Lite review: The best way to play on the go
The Switch Lite is all about portable gaming, and it shows. It's lighter, more nimble and easier to play just about anywhere. It's the ideal option if you never plan to game on your TV. And for existing Switch owners, it's a compelling secondaryFull Review
Nintendo Switch Lite review: How it stacks up to the standard Switch
The Switch Lite is something that most of us probably assumed was inevitable. Nintendo loves to iterate on its consoles with new models - handhelds especially - so a hardware revision for the Switch is something that was bound to happen. Now thatFull Review
A:AnswerYes fortnite can be played on the switch lite. There are a few games that won't be playable but most will be. Keep in mind this system is best for a person who mainly plays by themselves or with people who already have a switch. If you want a system for kids to play together in the same room you should consider the regular 299$ switch.
A:AnswerThe switch lite comes with everything you need to play games. It also includes a charger. You do not need joy cons, as the controls are built in. Yes you can play Minecraft with your friends as long as they are playing on Nintendo switch or somewhere that supports cross play.
