I definitely won't be buying a switch lite it just really has no appeal over to the original model, but I do like the color options for it.

Something I do hope that is fixed for the Lite is the joy-con drifting issue. At least for the regular Switch you can send just the joy-con to Nintendo to get it fixed (and have it break again soon after because Nintendo are incompetent at dealing with this problem properly) but for the Lite you would have to send the entire system in.

I can't wait to send my Nintendo Switch Lite in for repair in one year due to faulty control sticks! Grin

From what a lot of people are saying it with the new August Switch release with the better battery life, that the joy-cons are a lot better then the original ones. They're a bit more weighty & are made of sturdier stuffs. So my thought is that perhaps Nintendo would do the same with the Switch lite.

So something happened with my Switch tonight that made me appreciate it a hell of a lot more than I did before.

Now, this is something that, in hindsight, was obvious, but it just wasn't something I would have thought about unless it actually happened. I was sitting here playing Three Houses in docked mode, and the power suddenly goes out. I'm sure you can guess where I'm going with this. I great appreciated the fact that instead of my NS shutting off and me losing any progress since my last save like I would with any other gaming system, the Switch just automatically kicks back into handheld mode and the game continues to run without a hitch.

The Switch is literally power outage proof and that's a great feeling. Again, in hindsight, it's an obvious outcome, but just not something you'd normally think about until the power actually goes out and you see it happen. I suppose I just expected the system to shut down since I didn't remove the Switch from the dock, and the only time you see it switch back into handheld mode is when you remove it from there.

That is neat. I had an instance where I put my Switch in dock mode, TV was one, power on and all that, yet it went into Handheld Mode until I too it out and put it back in. I guess I nudged it out or something, but that probably hinted at me the Switch will go into Handheld if need be when sitting in the dock. Thought nothing of it at the time. I wasn't 100% sure what could happen, but with your confirmation of that, I don't need to worry if I'm playing on my Switch and we have a power outage at some point too.

Yea, we had a power outtage afew weeks ago & I ended up playing on my Switch undocked; though I wasn't playing on it when it happened. So yea, it's nice to know that I can play my Switch even if the power goes out.
