Nintendo Switch vs Nintendo Switch OLED

Much to fans’ disappointment, there really are not much changes to OLED from Nintendo Switch. The announcement was met with lukewarm reactions and personally, as a Switch owner myself, I see no reason to upgrade my unit just yet. And why is that? Well here we go:

So, now that the features of both models are listed down, you might be asking, “so, what’s new?” To be honest, there really isn’t much improvement. However, you might be impressed with the addition of the LAN port on the dock especially if you are a heavy online gamer. Also, the memory is doubled. And lastly, the enhancement on the screen and screen size might be valuable if you are playing graphic-intense games such as Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and the upcoming Pokemon Legends Arceus.

VERDICT: If you recently bought a Nintendo Switch then there really is no reason for you to fret and itch to get the latest OLED model. The features are the same except for the added port on the dock and the 0.8 difference in screen size. What do you think, Bingers?
