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 secondary system.

Light and comfortable to hold ; Directional pad! ; Solid battery life ; $100 less than the Switch

No TV output support ; Small text is tough to see

Nintendo Switch Lite review: The only Switch you can buy right now is a study in compromise

 

Revisiting Nintendo's $200 handheld after months in lockdown.

Lower price than the original Switch.

No TV docking.

That last sticking point is what makes me think the Lite is really just an option for players who were only interested in handheld. Yes, it's basically the same as a Switch in most other ways, as far as gaming and memory card support (and USB-C...

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 that the...

At $200, the Switch Lite is priced really well ; More portable than the standard Switch ; Good battery life despite smaller size

USB-C port placement can be annoying at times ; No option to connect to an external display

Nintendo Switch Lite review

 

We're impressed with Nintendo's compact alternative to its hybrid console. Here's our Switch Lite review.

Lighter and smaller More portable Nice selection of colors Comfortable design

Limited to handheld games. Still not as comfortable as 3DS

The Nintendo Switch Lite is a great, compact device for those who aren't a fan of (or simply never use) the original Switch's docked mode. The design is more comfortable for portable gaming than the Switch, while boasting the same performance.

Nintendo Switch Lite review: Switching up the formula

 

The Switch that doesn't switch is Nintendo's best handheld yet

Smaller and lighter than original Switch ; Improved battery life ; £80 cheaper

Still no Bluetooth audio support

However, if you are (unfortunately) like me and only ever use the Switch while you’re out and about, then the Switch Lite represents the very best handheld console that Nintendo has ever brought to market. The new design is far better suited for...
