Better battery life
The Nintendo Switch Lite has a longer battery life and that means longer playtime. This is proven and tested, well.. I got the Switch v1 and lite both played at the same time. After 3 hours of playing the Switch v1 already at 10% while the lite still at 30%.
Lighter that the original Nintendo Switch
Playing with the Nintendo Switch Lite for hours doesn’t make my hands uncomfortable unlike the original switch with just a few minutes, my hands were starting to feel uncomfortable because of its weight. In order to make it play with ease, I need to buy a case with hand grip to lessen the tension on my hands while playing.
Sharp and Vibrant display
Colors in the lite are more sharp and vibrant which makes your gaming experience incredible. Although the original switch has a bigger display it seems like there’s something missing..
If you are on a tight budget but want to buy or play those trending games then the Nintendo Switch Lite is the perfect match for you. Priced at $199 you can now enjoy and play games with your friends.
Not dockable – no TV mode
You can’t connect and play the lite in TV mode.
*Tip: As of writing, there are some accessories today that the lite can be played in bigger screens. I’ll update this post once I found a legit store for it.
Some Games are not compatible
Unfortunatenately the lite is not compatible with other games, the reason? Lite can only support handheld gaming.
No vibrate or motion controls
During play, you can’t feel vibrate or games with motion that needs to do swings.
*Tip: There’s always way to have these, if you don’t mind adding extra money then buy a pro controller.
