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.
And my Dacckit Carrying case for Nintendo Switch lite is Perfect fit.Beautiful appearance with High Quality. Highly recommended to every one who ordered the NS Lite.
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 connection
Let's go through the list of changes:
1. Size, weight, portability
Overall 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 only
The 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 guess
Seeing the smaller size, there may be more hand cramping involved if you have giant adult sized hands
Switch 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 ends
2. No detachable joycons
Cannot 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 original
Downside is that it loses some functionality in some games
You are not able to split controllers to let a friend play
Some games that you can't play on Switch Lite out of the box (as of this review) are:
Just Dance (Series)
Nintendo Labo (Series)
Nintendo Lano VR
Ring Fit Adventures
Super Mario Party
There are also other games that's not as convenient to play in handheld only like:
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
Mario Tennis Aces
Pokemon Let's Go series
Super Mario Odyssey
Zelda Breath of the Wild
You can buy joy cons to play on Switch Lite, but that costs additional $70 MSRP. Might as well buy a Switch at that point
If 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 stand
No 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 adapters
No 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 system
4. Has a D-Pad.
Best feature of the system in my opinion. Better tactile feel when playing. Enhances gameplay especially when playing 2D fighters
D-pad and other buttons (ABXY, shoulder buttons) are more muted when pressed which is great when playing in a public setting
5. No IR, HD Rumble
The IR Motion Camera and HD rumble features have been removed. Games that support these features will not work on Switch lite
6. 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 Lite
7. New colors
Comes in Turquoise, Grey and Yellow
There's also a Pokemon Sword and Shield ( Zacian and Zamazenta) Edition edition
8. Smaller screen
5.5 vs 6.2 inch screen
Resolution is the same at 720p, but more compact making it appear sharper with a 267ppi vs 236ppi
Overall, 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 same
Good buy for those budget friendly, but if you like more options best to go for the upgrade if you can afford it.

TLDR: Don't replace your current Switch with this if you have one already. Definitely replace your 2DS/3DS with this if you're in the market for a new handheld.
If you play or plan on playing your current Switch docked AT ALL, the answer is no. Don't buy this. Besides the obvious fact this cannot dock and output it's display to a TV, this is NOT a console built with local multiplayer in mind. Yes, you CAN connect JoyCons to it, prop it up against something, and play multiplayer games all on the Switch Lite. Just consider the fact that the OG Switch can also do that, and it does it much better. If you're looking for a home console for your family, the Switch Lite ain't it chief.
If you've never once docked your Switch and are looking for a smaller, lighter Switch with no creaky plastic, this is EXACTLY what you are looking for. Is it worth shelling out 250 of your hard earned Canadian dollars if you already own a Switch though? Probably not, unless you plan on selling your old Switch.
If you own a 2DS/3DS (or are looking to buy one) and aren't sure if it's worth getting this over those, just keep in mind that the Switch Lite is positioned in the market to kill off the older DS models. Nintendo has no plans for supporting the DS ecosystem going forward. For $50 more than a 3DS, you're getting access to a massive library of games on Nintendo's modern console. It's a no brainer.
The Switch Lite is the spiritual successor to the PlayStation Vita, not a doubt in my mind. If you are the type of person who plays games on the go and wants a more modern library of games, this is the console to get.
Minor/Major gripes with the Switch Lite:
Major Gripe - The D-pad is atrocious. I am mainly a SSB and Street Fighter player, and I am unable to consistently hit certain moves that require a diagonal press. The D-Pad on the Switch Lite is 'shallow', it doesn't stand tall from the case and I find it incredibly difficult to consistently hit diagonal movements. This is unfortunate, because comparing the D-Pad on the Switch Lite to the PlayStation Vita (both the OLED and Slim models), the D-Pad on the Switch Lite feels like an afterthought and I honestly would have preferred they kept the same button layout as the JoyCons. If you plan on playing SSB or Street Fighter, you may find it frustrating to pull off certain moves. For every other use case, it should serve you just fine.
Major Gripe - The Switch Lite doesn't have standard Bluetooth connectivity, which I think is honestly the dumbest decision Nintendo has made with the Switch consoles. If you want to use headphones with this, they either must be wired OR you have to buy a third party Bluetooth adapter to connect your headphones. Great, another thing to carry with your portable console.
Minor Gripe - The game cartridge cover/flap that covers the slot feels really cheap and flexible, just a light press on it when it's closed causes the entire cover to bend and flex, which doesn't inspire a whole lot of confidence if you're giving this to a child who isn't gentle with their belongings. It's great that the rest of the console itself feels solid and sturdy, but I can't help but feel that if someone drops their Switch Lite, that little cover is going to snap off/pop open and the game cart might come flying out.
Minor Gripe - The screen comes calibrated from Nintendo with a different color temperature compared to the OG Switch. Colors appear warmer on the Switch Lite, which I personally don't care about at all but it was noticable and to some of you considering this, might actually be a deal breaker (you know who you are). Because color accuracy and temperature preferences are personal, I will not outwardly say which screen is objectively better because that is a completely subjective preference. I will say that I personally prefer the screen on the Switch Lite.
I'll try to keep this review updated while I use the Switch Lite and discover more things I like and don't like about it. For my use case, it's a perfect replacement of my original Switch console and solves nearly every issue I had with the OG Switch.
Much more portable and much easier to hold in the hand.
Due to the fact the joycons are not detachable the console feels much better built and robust. Where as the original switch felt a bit flimsy.
Great size perfect for travel, commutes or kids
Improved battery life
Screen is sharper due to the higher PPI
The colours aren't as vibrant in real life
The finish is a bit rough and prone to scuffs.
This is the perfect secondary Switch or Switch for the kids. Much better build quality than the original. Now, is it worth saving the 100 bucks and buying the Lite over the revamped switch? That is up to you. For just 100 dollars more you get detachable joycons, the ability to dock, the dock and much better battery life . However, there is something to be said for the build quality. I chose this over another Switch.
Ésta consola es la mejor que pueda haber existido en el segmento portátil, pues puedes jugar muchísimos títulos recientes que están disponibles para Pc, Xbox one y Ps4 en la palma de tu mando.
Se siente muy cómoda al momento de jugar incluso por un largo tiempo, la pantalla tiene muy buen brillo y la resolución no se siente mala, su duración de batería es casi del doble en comparación con la switch normal.
Pros: Duración de la batería, ahora si la portabilidad, buena jugabilidad y sensación de los botones, cero calentamiento y ruido del ventilador.
Contras: Hasta ahora ninguno, solamente como detalle, si quieres jugar con el control pro o con otros joy cons no tiene como mantenerse de pie y la pantalla dividida para jugar con otra persona es muy incómodo casi no se alcanza a distinguir.
No dudes en adquirir esta consola, el servicio de Amazon es extraordinario, y sobre todo el precio, yo las compré en oferta relámpago y con dos meses de bonificación con citibanamex en poco menos de $4,000 pesos.
