Looking at specs, honestly, it is not as a portable device.
Even if you look at the display, frame rate, memory, battery capacity, etc., it will be a bit inferior compared to past deferred hard. It is subtle to compare, but whether it is not much different from the smartphone. But I cannot deny a slight performance deficit feeling. However, it is still unchanged that Nintendo software can be enjoyed, being the only one present. Also, there is no doubt that it is a revolutionary terminal in many ways.
Pros & Cons:
- Various play style is possible
- Nintendo software can play
- Faster launch and stress-free
- Somewhat uneasy about performance
- Battery holding is rather weak
Cosmetic box / package:
Here the package.!!
This time I got ” Nintendo Switch Joy – Con (L) Neon Blue / (R) Neon Red “.
Although there is a possibility that the advance information is overflowing, it makes me excited from the package. As expected, Nintendo.
In the case of software, software (and stickers, cases etc) are bundled separately, but the basic set is nine. And here, I was slightly surprised that the instruction manual is not in the package contents. Since How to Use is stated on the side of the box, there is nothing difficult if you set this way.
However, those who are not good at the machine seems to have a bit of a hard time. But, of course, this is Nintendo of the world. Please be assured that the support site is fully equipped.
Actually, I wanted a sprayer color (neon green · neon pink), but this is alike at all. Vivid color draws your eye.

Nintendo Switch body:
It is the back of the main unit. Stand-alone and self-sustainable. On the back side of the stand, the microSD card slot is hidden. The side is in a rail shape, and it is shaped to attach Joy-Con. The upper part is a power button, volume button, 3.5 mm earphone/microphone terminal, game card slot, speakers are attached to the lower part (left and right) of the front of the main unit.
Nintendo Switch dock:
|Nintendo Switch Dock spec|
|Connecting terminal|| |
|Size||104 mm × 173 mm × 54 mm (H x W x D)|
∗ Maximum thickness: 28.4 m
|Weight||Approximately 327 g|
Although it is not even specky, it corresponds to this interface only.
Since the AV cable is the mainstream era, HDMI comes with genuine and impressive things. Although the USB port is currently compatible with USB 2.0, it will be compatible with USB 3.0 with a fast transfer speed in future updates.
I hope it will be easier and easier to use!
I tried to explain in detail, but Joy – Con counts as a peripheral of Nintendo Switch. Since it is so, specs etc are omitted.
The figure above is the state with the Joy-Con strap attached. Quite small!
Various play modes:
Nintendo Switch which has “Play mode”, “Table mode”, “Mobile mode” and 3 play modes. The figure above is “Mobile mode” with Joy – Con attached to the main unit.
And the figure below is “TV mode”.
Since it is not connected, even the power supply is not included, but it is simply felt like “hard feeling”, it is interesting! Nintendo is still the best!
Nintendo Switch reviews:
It is said that the main body and Joy – Con ‘s battery holding are bad, but I personally did not care at all. It is certainly frustrating on specs and it is fatal for gamers that charging during play is impossible. If you are concerned, you can buy “Pro-Con”, it will resolve one.
The gyros felt honestly handled, but I think that it is a problem of familiarity, so it should be resolved as I play. Switching between the TV mode and the mobile mode is fast, I quickly recovered from loading and sleeping, I thought that the Nintendo switch is hard to play stress-free.
It is shaky that it is hard to get it because of the resale store (including production system), but expectations of software will continue to be enjoyed in the future!
A considerable amount of time has already passed since the launch, but the fact that the item is still in a state of short supply even now in (September 2017). We always think that resellers should be destroyed, but the situation is growing where such needs are more profitable.
I would like end users to be ready to buy at any time!
