You can be excited about a big OLED screen, great sound, lots of storage, and more cool things.

Providing the Right Game Mode According to the Situation

The Nintendo Switch OLED has three ways to play games. When in TV mode, you can play games on the TV in good quality, just like on a regular game console. Just connect the switch to the dock it comes with. The new dock in the Nintendo Switch OLED is better than the normal one – it has a LAN port to give you a strong internet connection.

In TV mode, you can choose how to control the game. Joy-Con controllers coming with the game can be used or one can buy the Switch Pro controller.

For handheld mode, put the Joy-Con controllers on the sides of the switch. Your games will show up on the 7-inch OLED screen. You can easily switch between TV and handheld mode anytime you want.

The Table mode offers a great way of playing games with others. You can use the new stand on the back of the Nintendo Switch OLED to prop it up. Just put it on a flat surface. You can play with your friend using Joy-Con controllers as a separate game controller, so you and a friend can play together using the two controllers that come with it. The new stand, OLED screen, and LAN port make the three game modes work even better than before in the regular model.

Nintendo Switch OLED with Bright Colors

As the name says, Nintendo puts an OLED screen in the Switch OLED. This one is bigger – 7 inches – than the 6.2-inch LC screen in the normal model. When you hold it or put it on a table, the stuff on the screen is easier to see and looks nicer – you’ll really notice it. The screen edges in Nintendo Switch OLED are thin as compared to the regular model despite the similar size of the cases, making the OLED model look much more modern.

Unlike the regular model’s LC screen, the OLED screen in the Nintendo Switch OLED has strong colors and differences between light and dark parts. This is because OLED tech lets them control each tiny dot on the screen. When something’s black, it’s really off, so black looks really black. On the older Nintendo Switch with LC display, black looks more like dark gray.

The OLED screen also has another good thing: it shows motion in a sharper way than the LC screen on the normal Nintendo Switch. That means games usually look really clear and sharp. Games that are fast, like racing or shooting games, are even better with this.

Nintendo made the OLED screen brighter too: the Nintendo Switch OLED is about 10 percent brighter than the normal model. Plus, the new screen has light that’s spread out more evenly, like 95 percent even. The LC display was only 75 percent even.

Upgrades in Nintendo Switch OLED

Nintendo made more things better in the OLED model compared to the regular one. This includes having twice as much memory: the regular Nintendo Switch only has 32 GB inside, but the Nintendo Switch OLED has 64 GB of storage. If you run out of room for games or apps, you can add more space by using a microSD card, up to 2 TB for both versions.

The speakers got a boost too: while the regular Nintendo Switch has open speakers, the Nintendo Switch OLED has special closed speakers. This makes the sound clearer and not just better, but also louder than in the normal model.

Nintendo Switch OLED in Conclusion

Nintendo smartly made a lot of things better in the OLED model of their Switch console. There’s a new and much more stable stand, which makes the table mode even easier to use. The improved docking station with a built-in LAN port is great for online gaming because it gives you a steady internet connection. And with 64 GB of storage, there’s much more room for games and apps.

The big upgrades are in sound and the screen. The new speaker system sounds louder and better all around. The OLED screen is bigger and has better colors, differences between light and dark parts, and brightness compared to the older LC screen in the original Switch. For those who are thinking of getting a Switch console, the Nintendo Switch OLED is the best choice.
