Gaming Device Jun 15, 2018 Akash Singh Chauhan
As the technology evolved, we have received more amazing gadgets and futuristic smartphones in our hands. From smartphones to smart home gadgets everything is on the edge of making a technology revolution.The gaming market is not an exception, and the tech giants are continuously introducing advanced consoles and controllers. In the race of best gaming console, Nintendo presented a brilliant and portable gaming console in front of us. Nintendo Switch is the latest portable gaming device from the company that is making some serious noise in the market. If you remember Sony PSP, then you already know how it looks but with a lot of advanced features.
If you are a gaming freak like me, then you must know how hard it is to leave your game in between and head out of the home. Nintendo came up with a solution and made things convenient for us. The Switch is the first portable hand gaming console that enables you to play the game on the big screen with the ability to continue playing when you are on the go. The Switch is composed of a 6.2-inch tablet that comes with two removable Joy-con controllers.
With the Joy-controller, the Switch looks like a 6.2-inch chunky phablet with considerably big bezels. The console comes with a more robust design that makes it look hard and tough. The screen is composed of an LCD capacitive touchscreen offering a 1280 X 720-pixel resolutions. The device is big and has a well-finished surface that doesn’t seem futuristic. But, don't judge a book by its cover. Nintendo Switch is one of the best gaming consoles I have ever used. There is a kickstand at the back that comes around when you want to hit the tabletop gaming sessions. The kickstand provides support to the Switch for placing it on the table. However the support isn't that firm, the kickstand is thin and weak that lead to the complaint from users for falling many times. Besides, I have also experienced the same two or three times, but I thought it might be me getting super excited while playing.
The 720p display isn't cutting-edge technology today, but it is considerably perfect for a portable gaming device. The Nintendo Switch came out to be better than PS Vita in the gaming experience. While playing Super Mario Odyssey and Splatoon 2, I never felt like there is some graphics issue with the Switch. The display is capable enough to keep you engaged to the device until its battery runs out. There is one HDMI and USB-C type cable that you can use for connecting it to a bigger screen and charging respectively. However, the charging port is given at the bottom side, so it makes difficult to charge the console while tabletop or TV gaming session. The Joy-con controllers are the best things about Nintendo Switch. The removable controllers come with very comfortable buttons and feel amazing in hands.
In addition, there is a dock with the console that comes with total three USB slots, one HDMI port and one USB -C type for changing. The Switch easily slips into the dock, and you can use it to charge the Joy-con and the console.
Honestly, when I got to know that Nintendo Switch was coming into my hands for a review, I wasn't that happy. I didn't had much expectation with the company after Nintendo Wii U. However, things turn out to be entirely upside down, during the period of almost 10 days I never left the console. The gaming experience was excellent, and I was entirely Nintendo Switch addicted. Initially, I was worried about the UI and graphics but ones I started playing The Legend Of Zelda and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe I forgot about expectations. The best part of the switch is that you can play it wherever you want. One moment I was playing it on my TV, and then someone hogs in for watching TV, I was able to continue my game on the console by going to a different room within no time.
Nintendo Joy-con controllers are the best accessory that I have seen with a portable gaming device. Whether you are using them attached to the Switch console or separately you won't find anything hindering your gaming experience. The Switch comes with X1 processor and 4GB DDR3 RAM that is capable of making your gaming session spectacular while playing the Switch’s compatible games. However, the processing unit of the Switch isn't prepared for the massive games like Horizon: Zero Dawn by Nintendo.
I have also put the battery of the Switch on test, according to Nintendo the device is capable of lasting up to 3 to 6 hours depending on games, brightness and Wifi connectivity. While keeping the brightness 100% and Wifi enabled the Switch’s battery went down by 35% in an hour and charged by +45% on one-hour charging. So it is clear that the console didn't last for more than 3-4 hours.
The Joy-Con controller isn't the best controller that I have used so far, but it does the work perfectly. For a gaming console like Switch that is made with the aim to provide flexibility, the controllers couldn't have been better.
Both the Nintendo controllers are light weighted and work exceptionally well while playing the games. However, the unconventionally placed analog on the right controller took me some time to map it in my mind for making moves. If you are still don't happy with Joy-Cons, then you can go for a pro controller.
Nintendo Switch is a powerful and fantastic portable gaming device that puts the company back on track. The switch has already made a good impression among the gamers and has been appreciated for its flexible features. The company sold almost 4.8 million units of Nintendo Switch that made it the fastest selling gaming console in the history of US. So, this makes it pretty clear how the Switch is doing in the market.
Where to buy: MSRP $299.00
