Nintendo Switch Detailed Features:
Nintendo Switch is designed to fit your life. The Switch features a fairly cut-and-dried design. It includes rectangles mixed with a few softer curves, all rendered in matte plastics.
The dock, a rather dull rectangle of black plastic by default, is more interesting than its appearance would indicate. There’s a space for the Switch to slide into, which contains a hidden USB Type-C connector, plus a port for the AC adapter to attach. The side and back of the dock contain a total of three ports for plugging in accessories and an HDMI output to connect to your monitor or TV, covered by a moulded flap that aims to keep your cables tidy.
You can choose the Neon color option, whose blue and red Joy-Con controllers give it a bit more personality, or the plainer all-grey version which gives a more cohesive look to the console. Either way, the centrepiece of the Switch is a grey rectangle with the display on it.
The Nintendo Switch is equipped with a 6”, 720p capacitive touch screen, which holds a record of the most advanced ever screen put on a Nintendo device. The 3DS’ screen only shows a 400-by-240 picture ,for the handheld’s 3D effect, which means the Switch’s 1,280-by-720 screen has nine times as many pixels. It’s a bright, sharp screen, with excellent colours even when viewing it off-angle. It isn’t as crisp or as high-res as the 1080p and Quad HD screens of many modern smartphones and tablets, but for a Nintendo gaming device, it’s very impressive.
The included Joy-Cons are a pair of wireless controllers that can be used with the Switch in different configurations. Each Joy-Con measures 4.0 by 1.4 by 0.5 inches (not including the analog stick), and looks like half of a conventional gamepad built into a rounded one-handed grip with a large flat side equipped with an attachment rail.
Both Joy-Cons feature half the controls found on a standard gamepad, including an analog stick, four face buttons that double as a digital direction pad, and two shoulder buttons you can easily reach when holding it in one hand, plus left and right shoulder buttons, a pairing button, and four indicator lights hidden on the attachment rail. In summary the Switch is:
- Bigger than traditional handhelds
- Slightly cramped for the right hand due to right analogue stick
- Split D-pad on the left side
Grips and Straps.
The included Joy-Con wrist straps are simple plastic rails that slide over each Joy-Con, providing a wrist strap to keep it secure and placing larger, easier-to-press mechanical shoulder buttons over the tiny ones on the naked controller.
Multiplayer and online
If you want to play first-party Nintendo games online, you need to back up your saves in the cloud, play NES and SNES games, or access the companion smartphone app, you’ll have to subscribe to Nintendo Switch Online.
Switch Online has some peculiar characteristics. You don’t need to pay for multiplayer for every game, but on the other hand, only certain games support cloud saves. The smartphone app is also necessary for online voice chat, as the console itself can’t do this. You can pair up to four Joy-Cons to a single Switch console, but you can also connect up to eight consoles together locally for massive multiplayer matches.
Unlike most of the latest smartphones, the Nintendo Switch’s 4310mAh battery is rated to last between 4.5 to 9 hours.
