In the field of portable game consoles we have models to bore, some being more interesting than others. Some, although they lived their moment of glory (like the PSP and Sony PS Vita) have already passed into the background. And many others are still very relevant.
But if we have to stay with the undisputed king of the sector, we will probably all opt for the same video console: la Nintendo Switch. Since it was launched on the m arket a few years ago, it is one of the best portable consoles
La inminente Steam Deck, Valve’s long-awaited portable console, it seems that it will be a tough competitor to Nintendo’s proposals. But while the day comes when we have her between us, The Switches are still one of the best options we find in the market if we want to combine video games and portability.
Differences between Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite
After the success of the original Nintendo Switch, the arrival of new versions was only a matter of time. And so it was: at the end of 2019 it was released la Nintendo Switch Lite, a variant that maintains the essence of the console although with some obvious differences. And far from competing with his older sister, has shown that it can coexist perfectly with her. To which must be added the OLED SwitchAlthough it has not corresponded to the hype of the community, it is an interesting alternative for certain users.
But going back to the original Switch and the Lite, beyond the obvious differences that we see with the naked eye, they move away in a few ways. The point where they differ the most is the use for which they are intended: while the Switch can be used portable and on televisions, the Switch Lite, with extreme portability as its reason for being, only serves to play on the console itself.
This means that, for example, we cannot connect the Lite version to the dock that acts as an intermediary between the Nintendo Switch and the television where we play. Or that the side controls cannot be removed, known as Joy-Con, as they are integrated into the body of the console itself. To this we must add that the Switch Lite is slightly smaller and lighter, as well as that its screen is smaller: 6.2 inches of the original compared to 5.5 of the ultraportable.
So far it may seem that the Lite version only suffers cuts compared to the Switch, but nothing is further from the truth. Because one of the points in which it comes out winning is in autonomy: the older console falls one notch below, offering a maximum of 6.5 hours of use, while the most recent is capable of reaching 7 hours
And we cannot forget the price factor, of course, in which the Switch Lite also wins. Both consoles have an interesting cost for what they offer, there is no doubt. But when you have to minimize spending and look into your pocket, the Lite version It is much more attractive as it usually costs about 100 dollars less. Thus, today we can acquire the Nintendo Switch for 314,98 dollars, while the Switch Lite comes out for 198,90 dollars. In addition to finding packs with games included, like these with Animal Crossing: New Horizons o Rayman Legends e Immortals Fenyx Rising:

That said, which of the two consoles is better?
Well, at this point, it is common for us to find ourselves in the position of wanting to buy a Nintendo Switch but we don’t really know which of the two models to choose
Taking into account that their catalogs are similar And we can play the same games we must assess whether we are going to use the console most of the time indoors and on a television. If so, the original Nintendo Switch is the best option.
However, if the reason for getting one is to always carry it with us, we want it to be as comfortable as possible to transport and we do not think about plugging it into the TV, the choice is more than clear: the Switch Lite, which is designed precisely for this type of user.
Be that as it may, whether we choose one or the other Switch, Nintendo has thought of everything and has a lot to choose from within each console. So whether the chosen one has been the Switch, or if it has been the Switch Lite, we can choose between different colors and editions, like these that we see below.
