- Answer The Switch Lite has a 5.5 inch screen while the Switch has a 6.2 inch screen. In addition, the joy cons are integrated into the Switch Lite and are not removable. You can add additional Joy cons if you want though. The Switch Lite also lacks a kick stand as well. The biggest lost feature is the Switch Lite can not connected to the TV and it does not include a Dock either. You can only play games on the Switch Lite itself. Since the joy cons are not removable, it makes replacing them more difficult when experiencing issues and if you need the Joy cons repaired, you are without the system itself. Everything else such as memory card support, internal storage, amiibo, and game support is still supported. Also, one more thing. Due to the recent update of the new Switch revision, the battery life on the new Switch model is better than the Switch Lite as well.
- Answer I think it’s safe to assume all games, especially first party games, will be fully playable on lites going forward.
QuestionWill kids still be able to play fortnight on this switch console? Will all switch games work on this console?
- Answer Yes 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.
- Answer No, unfortunately this model only works in handheld mode.
QuestionCan the Switch Lite go on websites and does it have apps like Youtube, Netflix, etc.? Also with the expandable memory card, can you watch movies on it? Thanks.
- Answer It can only access YouTube and hulu. Nintendo was focused on making a game console first soi it doesn't have many of the internet features or apps like a phone or tablet. You also can't put movies on the sd card.

- Answer Look on the back of the game box. If game can be played in hand held mode. Then yes. To play like Mario party. Though you will have to sync up extra joy cons, or Just aDance, or 1,2 switch.Sync extra controllers to play.
QuestionDoes the Nintendo -- Switch Lite require a memory card? What is the advantage of having a memory card? The device has one memory card slot so that's why I am asking. I'm a Mom trying to get a complete outfit for my kid's Christmas gift. Suggestions???
- Answer Game saves will use the internal memory only. Using a memory card is ideal for digital games and also games have large updates. This can fill up the built-in 32GB storage quickly. MicroSD cards can be pretty cheap. You don't need to buy the Nintendo licensed Sandisk ones if you don't want to, but can for piece of mind if you choose. They aren't special outside the art on it.
QuestionWe already have a Nintendo switch Console, my son wants his own for his birthday. Would Nintendo switch lite be appropriate? Or do we need to get a whole other Nintendo switch Console?
- Answer The Switch Lite is perfect for kids, especially if you already have a regular switch. I have the regular switch but the kids ended up playing it so much I bought myself the lite. I ended up getting my older son one as well. I love playing it as I prefer handheld mode and we have the regular switch for when we want to play games on the tv. There is no reason to get a second full Switch unless your son has a tv in his room and wants to play on it. If you have multiple family members that play downloaded games I would keep the main Switch as the primary and make the lite the secondary one as only on the primary account can all users play any downloaded game. This will mean the Switch lite will have to connect to the internet for a second before it plays but that is only an issue when traveling and if you have a hotspot on your phone it works fine and only needs to be online for a brief time. If you don’t have the ability to hotspot when traveling then you can always switch the primary account for traveling and then switch back. So I would definitely recommend the Lite over the regular Switch for a second one and for a kid.
- Answer Basically you go in settings for both and choose one to send and the other to receive. So it has to be on one system at a time. Otherwise you have to pay for Nintendo Online to have Cloud saves.
- Answer Yes the graphics will be the same as the regular switch in handheld mode. (720p screen) The screen is slightly smaller that the regular switch but the same resolution so it may in fact look a little sharper because the pixels are smaller.
- Answer I was able to find mine by going to the Nintendo sight and clicking purchase now. That linked me to stores that had them available. I did have to try for a couple of days but found early morning before 7 I had the best luck.
- Answer It can use downloaded content or content in cartridges.
