3 best Nintendo Switch products to watch out for

Nintendo Switch (OLED)

Nintendo Switch OLED

Nintendo’s premium Switch with a sharp, bright OLED panel

Larger 7-inch screen makes a difference
OLED provides perfect blacks and accurate colors
Enhanced speakers sound fantastic
No upgrades in TV mode
Internal specs remain the same
Durability concerns still not addressed

The Nintendo Switch OLED is the company's premium flagship console. It's the most expensive of the three Switch models, but for the extra buck you're getting a lovely bright and sharp OLED screen on the device itself, which we'd consider an upgrade over the regular model's LCD screen.

Nintendo Switch

The standard model offering play on the TV and portably via its LCD screen

Unique hybrid design
Two controllers included
Bright, crisp, colorful screen
Split D-pad
Oddly placed right analogue stick
Joy-Cons charge only on console without accessory

Nintendo's first handheld hybrid that launched in 2017. Its 720p LCD screen certainly isn't as sharp or flashy as its younger OLED counterpart, but it's still an excellent display for most games.

Nintendo Switch Lite

Nintendo Switch Lite

A more affordable option only playable in portable mode. Great for on-the-go gaming

Lighter and smaller
Nice selection of colors
Comfortable design
Limited to handheld games

The Nintendo Switch Lite is the budget option. Unlike the other models, the Lite can only be played portably, and can't connect to your TV. Still, you're getting a great portable experience here if you like to play a lot of smaller scale indies on the go.
