    Basically a budget friendly Nintendo Switch that’s meant to be more portable. Unlike the iphone 11 and iphone 11 Pro, Galaxy 10e and Galaxy 10, iphone XR and iphone X, etc it doesn’t keep all features the same, just downgraded.In fact like the Nintendo 2DS (compared to 3DS) it actually takes away some features.If you already own a Nintendo Switch console, you can sync* or transfer from your profile/games/saves using your Nintendo account. Very simple; when you boot up system for first time it’ll walk you through it step-by-step*If you sync or link one account to multiple switch consoles, the non-main one has to verify every few hours to play downloaded games which can be a hassle if you don’t have internet connectionLet’s go through the list of changes:1. Size, weight, portabilityOverall size in general: The Switch Lite is basically the Original Switch (I’ll be referring it to ‘Switch’ moving forward) but with one of the joy cons detached.You think this will be more portable, but in practice from my personal experience it’s not. If you consider size onlyThe Switch can detach joycons for better storage. Downside is that you must be aware where you put the screen and joycons and attach them later.There is a difference if you pocket thing whole thing without detaching i guessSeeing the smaller size, there may be more hand cramping involved if you have giant adult sized handsSwitch Lite is lighter in weight, but it’s not a night-and-day difference. Not going to tell unless you have both side-by-side in each hand.Bezels are colored which is nice. It’s not black like on the Switch, so able to distinguish where the screen ends2. No detachable joyconsCannot detach joycons, making the logo snap/click sound clip that game trailers start off/ends with absolutely useless when referring to Switch line of systems in general.As one singular unit, fused into the system; feels more solid in the hand compared to originalDownside is that it loses some functionality in some gamesYou are not able to split controllers to let a friend playSome games that you can’t play on Switch Lite out of the box (as of this review) are:1-2 SwitchFitness BoxingJust Dance (Series)Nintendo Labo (Series)Nintendo Lano VRRing Fit AdventuresSuper Mario PartySurgeon SimulatorThere are also other games that’s not as convenient to play in handheld only like:ARMSFortnightMario Kart 8 DeluxeMario Tennis AcesPokemon Let’s Go seriesSuper Mario OdysseySplatoon 2Zelda Breath of the WildYou can buy joy cons to play on Switch Lite, but that costs additional $70 MSRP. Might as well buy a Switch at that pointIf the thumb sticks breaks or if there are drifting issues, you can have it fixed by Nintendo for $80.3. Cannot be docked to TV, no kick standNo docking station. If you own the Switch with docking station; the Switch Lite cannot fit in it.As of right now, there’s no official docking station for Switch Lite from Nintendo, and no 3rd party adaptersNo kickstand to play on tabletop mode. Seeing the smaller screen you wouldn’t want to anyway even when a lot of controllers are sync and people squinting their eyes when huddled around the system4. Has a D-Pad.Best feature of the system in my opinion. Better tactile feel when playing. Enhances gameplay especially when playing 2D fightersD-pad and other buttons (ABXY, shoulder buttons) are more muted when pressed which is great when playing in a public setting5. No IR, HD RumbleThe IR Motion Camera and HD rumble features have been removed. Games that support these features will not work on Switch lite6. Better battery?? 4-7 hours versus the 3-6 hours of the original launch Nintendo Switch.If you buy the newer 2019 model of Switch (Retail box with a lot of Red), the battery life is better than the Switch Lite7. New colorsComes in Turquoise, Grey and YellowThere’s also a Pokemon Sword and Shield ( Zacian and Zamazenta) Edition edition8. Smaller screen5.5 vs 6.2 inch screenResolution is the same at 720p, but more compact making it appear sharper with a 267ppi vs 236ppiOverall, I like the concept of a more portable (?), affordable switch, but I don’t like the fact that it exists.If it’s like the 2ds (with no 3d support). Devs (even first party) will eventually take away features in games in the future: motion controls, AR support, HD rumble, docked TV mode, etc to cater to a wider audience.They should have just made it smaller and kept everything the sameGood buy for those budget friendly, but if you like more options best to go for the upgrade if you can afford it.

    I strongly recommend AGAINST buying the Switch Lite. Downloaded content can only be played while connected to the internet. HUGE downside and problem since this is meant to be portable!!! Additionally, my 7 year old son can’t play ANY of the games that we purchased in the E-Shop for him because we purchased them under our adult profiles (a Nintendo rule!). This item is USELESS.

    Gave it 5 stars because there is nothing wrong as described, but parents may want to read this:I have two kids and we already own the original Nintendo Switch and have amassed over 40 games throughout the 2.5 years since the Switch’s release. The Switch Lite although nothing physically wrong with it, is completely useless to me and my family. I have two young kids, and all 3 of us have our own profiles which are linked under my main account via Nintendo ID. The problem is is that only the main account holder (me) can play the purchased games on both devices. So the Switch Lite does not work for either of my kids, only my main account. Yes, this can be switched by changing which Switch device is the “primary” switch, but the fact still remains that under NO conditions can my kids play both switch consoles at the same time, even if it is two separate games. If you have cartridges instead of digital downloads, you will not have this problem. I just fail to understand Nintendo’s logic with this. I understand that they are trying to protect their own content from unauthorized use, but in doing so are rendering their newest device completely useless to customers like me. I will be returning.

    I’m not really big into video games but The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past has always been a favorite. I love that I can now play it whenever I want, even on the go. And I love that the Switch Lite was available in my favorite color.

    Absolutely love what Nintendo has done here. Not only do they own the Handheld/Portable aspect of gaming but the innovation never stops with them. A++ on quality, Battery Life, Experience…all of the above. Thank u for giving yet another customer a fun filled piece of equipment
