    I read all the reviews prior to purchasing. Most of the reviews were not good and I'm glad I chose to buy it anyways. Case fits the switch perfectly and does the job it's supposed to do. I only use it when I take it on the go. Yes you have to take it out of the case to dock the switch no big deal. Don't be lazy! The flap does hang down behind the case but it's not bothersome and just folds over. Fully functional. Has vents for airflow and you can plug a external charger without taking it out of the case. My switch stays docked 80 percent of the time so I don't mind throwing this on for traveling. I didn't bother installing the screen protector because the flap covers the screen when not in use and works great. I also have a travel case as well and it fits into the travel case with the hybrid case just fine.

    Must Have...

    This is a must have for people that plan on shoving their Switch into a bag without a case. Not only does it come with the hybrid cover, they also include a screen protector for extra screen protection. While I also own a case to keep the Switch protected, I also like putting on this cover for added protection. Not only does it protect the front of the system, it protects the back. The only drawback is that it is not thin enough to put in the dock, so you have to take it off and put it back on a lot. That honestly wasn't a problem for me since it's super easy to put on and off, it has velcro instead of something that requires more force to get on.

    Exact fit for the Nintendo Switch

    This case fits the Nintendo Switch PERFECTLY! I find it amazing how they designed it so that there is absolutely no movement, sliding or readjustments when this case is applied. I love the fact that it also has slots on the cover so you can sit your Switch upright in three different angles, so you do not have to worry about covering your kickstand on the back. The fact that it has three different angles to adjust to, make it better than the stock kick stand. I love the feel of the material and the magnetic cover flap, so the screen is never accidentally exposed. Perfect for gamer's like me who are extremely adamant about keeping their merchandise in pristine condition.

    FRONT SCREEN AGGRAVATING!

    Posted

    I've been a Nintendo fan since the first console, but seems to me whoever designed the Wii U, the Switch, and a lot of their accessories haven't seemed to be thought over quite well! This front cover should have been made to maybe fold back and have velcro or something to hold it instead of it hanging!! I wouldn't expect it to fit into the dock bc it's made to protect it so it has to have some kind of bulk, but it's really irritating to have the front just hanging! This is the only cover I've found and having kiddos playing the switch. ...I worry about them dropping it especially bc the controllers are tiny! This is decent to prop up and if you travel is good for protection, but for using hand held....not a fan at all!

    Not a good case

    I like the slim and versatile nature of the case, but it's really only good for playing in table top mode. When you're playing in handheld mode, the flap that protects the front of the Switch just kind of hangs there, unless you fold it over and hold it while you're playing, which is just not comfortable. There are no slots for storing game cartridges, which would have made the awkwardness of a dangling flap worth it for a slim case like this. Overall, I like the concept. It feels sturdy and I'd feel confident storing my Switch in a bag with this case on. It's pretty rigid and feels fairly crush resistant. However, it could have been done much, much better. I don't recommend this case.

    Cover is good. Screen protector is terrible.

    The wrap-around cover is fine but I am very disappointed by the screen protector, which is a pain to install and doesn't adhere well. It's full of bubbles and the cardboard squeegee that is supposed to remove the bubbles only makes them worse. While Best Buy's customer service is usually great, I have to complain that this was recommended to me by a Best Buy employee — on the merits of the screen protector! He claimed that many people found scuffs and scratches on their Nintendo Switch screens when sliding the system in and out of the dock. I'm sure that is true, but this screen protector is a cheap, bubbly eyesore that I will have to replace with a tempered glass "easy install" screen protector elsewhere.

    Mixed feelings but I returned.

    It's a great texture and feels nice wrapped around your Switch. Will protect your screen. Allowing it to stand is very nice. The only issue for me is if you play the Switch in your hands and not on the stand, the flap that covers it and is used as a stand just hangs down. I returned for this reason. Also, can't fit into dock with this on. If you fly on airplanes a lot or will be using this on a desk or something, then it's useful.

    Good for tabletop mode.

    This cover is good if you travel with your switch and want protection from bumps and scraps while its in your pocket or backpack. This cover does come with a plastic screen protector and a switch branded cloth which is nice. One downside to this cover though is that it is awkward to hold while playing in handheld mode with the joy cons attached as the front of the cover just hangs there with no real way to move it out of the way. With that said its good if you play in tabletop mode alot as front part can double as a stand and this has more support than the kick stand that comes on the switch.
