Read about the Nintendo Switch Lite in our review that gave it 4.5 stars out of 5 with a Recommended badge. Rebecca Spear said "The Switch Lite is even better than I expected it would be. It feels amazing in my hands, has a stellar battery life, and is super easy to play on the go. I'll be using it more often instead of taking my larger Switch around with me."

The Nintendo Switch Lite is $100 less expensive than the regular Switch to begin with. It focuses on the portability of the console. It has an identical processor, a slightly smaller screen, and a battery life that's just as good as the full-size console. It is also perfectly compatible with all the regular Switch games as long as they support handheld mode, since that's the only mode the Switch Lite can do. The sleek design has fully integrated controls and a built-in +Control Pad.
