Is Nintendo switch really the best gaming console out there right now? With its high definition 1080 home gaming, grab it and go attitude and family friendly triple A games, Nintendo has grabbed every other console creator by surprise.
Always buy from trusted sellers with verified reviews and trusted companies.
There’s no mistake Nintendo has put a lot of effort into designing Nintendo Switch with its colorful looks and easy to attach and detach Joy-Cons. The overall quality is pretty astonishing for something you can play at home or on the go. The plastic feels high quality, though the screen does seem to scratch pretty easily so this is something to look out when placing the console in the dock. The Nintendo Switch has some weight which gives it a higher quality feels as well.
Who could mention the Nintendo Switch without mentioning the almost revolutionary Joy-Cons. Attach them on the side of the Nintendo Switch and they get loaded from the console itself and play with Nintendo Switch as a handheld device. Or maybe you want to have the Nintendo Switch on the dock and lay on the sofa with the Joy-Cons on your hands.
They also include an infrared camera and motion sensors which give developers tons of features to play with and include in their games as a new and fun way to engage their players. A good example of these uses is the new Nintendo Labo – Variety kit which allows you to play tons of different games, even play music and even make your own small apps with the Nintendo Switch.

The screen on the Nintendo Switch does leave somethings to hope, with its capacitive touch screen which is 6.2 inch LCD screen and 1280 x 720.
The Nintendo Switch runs up to 1080p via HDMI in TV mode but lacks a bit on the handheld mode with only 720p. This is not bad for a handheld device but still feels sometimes a bit lackluster compared to the TV mode.
Nintendo claims that Nintendo Switch should have a battery life of three to six hours, but to be realistic this probably won’t be the case in most cases.
- 100% Brightness and Wi-Fi Enabled you’re going to be expecting about -38% charge with one hour of gameplay and +45% of after one hour of charge in the doc.
- With 50% brightness and airplane mode, you are going to have -32% power after one hour of play and +45% after one hour of charge.
Now for the important part. What is it like to play with Nintendo Switch? This is an important question and with no easy answers. Some games like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is simply a masterpiece in its own and runs as smooth as you could wish with astonishing outdoors and powerful and dangerous enemies. Playing that game is fun, it uses every aspect of the console and it has a good key layout for the console.
Do other games reach the same gaming quality as The Legend of Zelda on the Nintendo Switch? Well, the honest answer is, not quite. Sometimes you have to put your right hand in a bit awkward way to reach the thumbstick, but this is not a huge problem.
In co-op play, the Joy-Cons do what they are designed to, even though they might feel a bit small for some users.
Personally, we can recommend anyone thinking of playing Zelda or other games from their TV at home to get the Nintendo Switch Pro controller which is much more ergonomic and gives you much better gaming experience with the console.
