Display Of Nintendo Switch vs Switch Lite – Compare

- Advertisement -

The Switch features a 6.2-inch touch screen while the Switch Lite has a smaller 5.5-inch touch screen. The former also includes a Nintendo Switch dock and HDMI cable so you can dock the system, remove the Joy-Con, output the video to a TV, and play with it like a regular console. The latter, on the other hand, is not compatible with the dock so it doesn’t support video output to a TV.

Supported Play Modes

Given their differences in controls and display, the two devices offer different play modes. The Switch is the most versatile as you can connect it to TV like a regular console, lets you play with another person by sharing a Joy-Con, and for on-the-go playing, you can use it as a handheld console. The Switch Light, on the other hand, can only be used as a handheld console, but you can still play with other Switch users via local wireless or online play.


Their differences will also affect your choices of games. The Switch supports all the games in the platform, while the Switch Lite can only play games that support handheld mode. For games that do not support handheld mode, players can wirelessly connect compatible controllers to the Switch Lite.

Battery Life

For the battery life, Nintendo says the Switch can last approximately 2.5 – 6.5 hours, or approximately 3 hours of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The Switch Lite, on the other hand, can last approximately 3 – 7 hours, or approximately 4 hours of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
