Pros: Much more portable and much easier to hold in the hand. Due to the fact the joycons are not detachable the console feels much better built and robust. Where as the original switch felt a bit flimsy. Great size perfect for travel, commutes or kids Improved battery life Screen is sharper due to the higher PPI Better buttons
Cons: The colours aren't as vibrant in real life The finish is a bit rough and prone to scuffs.
This is the perfect secondary Switch or Switch for the kids. Much better build quality than the original. Now, is it worth saving the 100 bucks and buying the Lite over the revamped switch? That is up to you. For just 100 dollars more you get detachable joycons, the ability to dock, the dock and much better battery life . However, there is something to be said for the build quality. I chose this over another Switch.
