A little about the device
Nintendo Switch is basically a gaming device designed for players who want to have location control in their hand. When it comes to video games, portability is a major issue. Nintendo has tried to find a solution to the problem with the new device. While playing at home, the user can dock the Nintendo Switch and enjoy HD gaming on the TV. While playing outside, the unlocked device provides a seamless transition. The device can also be used by two players by separating the controls from the screen and using them as separate controllers.
There are a lot of features that the Nintendo Switch users can use while playing. It offers screenshot facility which allows the user to share the screenshots of the game on social media. It comes with Parental Control which can be used to control and manage the usage among different family members. The parental controls on the device can be moderated from anywhere via a mobile app.
The device comes with an extended battery life. The battery can last up to 6 hours, but the actual battery life depends on the usage and game. For example, if you are playing The Legend of Zelda then the battery will last only for three hours instead of six hours.
The device has a 6.2-inch multi-touch capacitive touchscreen with HD resolution at 1280 x 720 pixels. It comes with 32 GB of internal storage which is further expandable via microSD card. The system files consume a portion of the inbuilt 32 GB storage. You will get Nintendo Switch Control, Joy-Con left and right, Nintendo Switch Dock, Joy-Con grip, Nintendo Switch Adapter, HDMI cable and Joy-Con straps in the box.
The gaming industry is very vast, but the number of big players in the industry is very limited especially when it comes to consoles. The companies like Nintendo, Xbox and Play station are ruling the market with some of the best gaming consoles. In the last few years, the technological advancements in the field of video games have left everyone in a state of awe. The graphics, controls, and features have increased to a level which was not even possible to imagine just a decade ago.
