I’ve wanted a switch for a while but had a hard time committing to the cost but this has already proven worth the price, even including the game prices. I’ve already used it handles attached to screen, multiplayer with the little screen and multiplayer hooked up to a tv. It charges fast and is fairly intuitive to use. Maybe the only drawback is the Nintendo games are pretty pricey, that and sometimes the controllers are slightly difficult to unattach from accessories.
Some of the reviews on this particular listing made me worried but it is not a scam. The only slightly sketchy thing is that the box art/image was slightly rubbed off but otherwise it was perfectly packaged. Also it doesn’t come with any games so keep in mind you’ll also need the cost of the game(s) you want.
In short I love it and am going to use it an absolute ton. Eventually I’m going to invest in a few extra controllers for family. This is a console I intend to use for years to come, a great investment.
Edit: A year later still love it! I did get another set of joy cons, really nice for family game nights.
Gotten a few more games as well! If you wait for sales you can get some really good deals and you get points/credit things that you can use to take money off purchases (I saved some up for animal crossing also used some for a really cheap game to get it at no cost)
She is the one writing the review.
Even though it came dusty there was a slight crack in the screen. It's small but noticeable.
The two joy con's that comes with it doesn't share the same car code as the box and neither does the charging port. My boyfriend said that they might've replaced them. Other Than that it works perfectly and smooth. The battery life sucks. I thought I was playing one of the new version. But from what my boyfriend says In that this is one of the 1st gen edition. With the smaller amount of battery life. Needless to say I play is all day and everyday. So I do not have any complaints.
I usually video record my delivery box opening but it wouldn't allow me upload video.
If you're a fan of Nintendo in any sense of the word, you'll be more than happy with the Switch.
Overall, I love it and I'm having lots of fun!

In any case I got it and I'm quite happy with it. It's not perfect however.
It's fast, getting into a game is really quick. Resuming a game is even quicker, the device can be in a standby state for a week, and still have 50 percent battery left over.
Graphics looks quite good on the device it's self. Sitting on the bus or lying in bed, you can have a good game. As far as portable gaming experiences go, it's pretty much the best you can get from a mobile device.
Battery life. I've heard different opinions on this, some people yay it and others moaning. I'm going to say yay and I feel that the naggers have clearly got expectations that are too high. It is game dependent, and of course brightness is a massive impact on it. To give an example, you could play Mario Kart in the dark, brightness low, and you would get 8 hours plus. At high brightness, you'll get about 4. Playing Zelda on the other hand will drain you faster, due to the increased load on the system. If you compare this with high end mobile phone or tablet battery life, it's fairly on par!
The flexibility with the controllers, being able to play with both, or switch to one and give the other half to a friend in acouole seconds is awesome. Battery on the controllers is also great. Having them charge through the main unit is also good.
Having USB type C is great. The adapter of the future, be able to charge it with a phone charger. Can't complain.
The dock. Simply put, this is what truely makes the switch work. It's in the dock, turn on the TV and pick up the controller. Like a PS4 you are in the game in less than 5 seconds due to the resume feature, you're playing your fave game, and then you've got to go. You pick the unit up out of its dock, fire it into your bag and jump on the bus. Pull it out your bag and within 2 seconds you are right back where you were and you can play for hours!
The screen is plastic, not glass. I get that this helps prevent cracks, gives it that little bit of shock resistance. However what you loose is scratch resistance and that nice smooth feel you get from a new smartphone. The dock is also made of plastic, which isn't a bad thing. But after a single week of usage, you will be able to see scratches on the screen at the bottom left and right where the dock runs along it. It highlights how prone the screen is to scratching when another bit of smooth plastic can scratch the panel. I recommend a tempered glass screen protector for it as soon as you buy it. You get the protection, and the premium feel as well.
Price of games. I'm not one of these people that have issue buying a £40 to £50 game. But some of the games aren't fully fledged games in m opinion. Tomb raider is an example of a complex piece of software, high quality voice acting, a script, etc. Fully justified a price of £50. Minecraft, great game with a great community, costing £10 to £15 on other platfrms, free on Android, £33 on switch? It's not all games, don't get me wrong. But you could argue that there is a few titles that could be considered mobile games, or experiences. On Android these would often be games you would see for free, or a few quid, maybe £5.
The online experience. Nintendo is well behind the other manufacturers or providers when it comes to their online offering. On other consoles or PC there is entire online communities all easily connected and offering a broad range of features. Nintendo offers nothing in this area besides the basics. It was a free service which was fine, but they are going to start charging for that this month and the offering isn't really improving to justify the charge. Maybe this will change, but for now it just feels like a bit of a slap in the face.
No apps or multimedia abilities. For a device that is effectively a tablet, that even uses a chipset which was designed for high end Android tablets, I find it completely mind boggling that there is no apps like netflix, BBC iPlayer, decent web browser, a media player so that you can pop some videos into an SD card. I spend about 4 hours a day on the bus, when I bought the switch I kind of expected that I'd be able to leave the tablet in he house and use the switch for games and movies.
To finish off I'll touch back on graphics again. When docked, you get to play your games on the big screen. This I were the graphics might start to let you down as the cracks will start to show. It's not bad by any means, in fact there is some really nice looking stuff. But, if you are looking at buying one system, and portability is not something all that important to you, graphics on a console dedicated to the living room will impress to a much greater degree.
- Creative and innovative design
- Crisp, clear handheld screen
- Easy to use
- Feels well built and high quality
- Excellent graphics for a handheld
- Really fun!
- Screen is slightly small for detailed games
- Battery life could be better
- Small catalogue of games
Overall, a great little console that, for me at least, was well worth the asking price. I love my Nintendo Switch, and found it's very easy to get attached to it. Nintendo have been congratulated by the 'big boys' (Microsoft and Sony) for the Switch's design, and they deserve it. The Switch is much more innovative and interesting than anything that either the XBox or Playstation family have produced in years.
When the catalogue of games increases, and a Pokémon game hits, expect the Switch's popularity to skyrocket further.
