        I'm a little confused ... I heard a lot of people ,for instance , comments and videos saying how it would be NICE to have a portable version of the switch and it just seems like ,not everyone is satisfied .. just cause the switch has XYZ doesn't mean the switch lite can and should fit the freakin mold , nobody's perfect ,neither are objects an machinery ,everybody has their own flaws at the end of the day. *To sum up : either take it ,or leave it !*

          Will it run handheld game just as well as the normal switch or is the original switch more powerful ? Also what happens with joycon drifting?

            The only thing I love about this is how it looks with the colors and how it looks in general, I'm not gonna get one just for looks because that's a giant waste of money for a console that is sort of a downgrade from the normal switch, I'm fine with the normal switch being the only thing I have

                Why not have both models? Plus it's only $199.99.

                            it is. the demand is there and the regular switch canot replace the 3DS. But it might get a bit cheaper over time.

                          I wish you guys put subtitles instead of talking over it. It’s like watching English dubbed anime. It’s not bad but it would be better just to put subtitles.

                                              Hey Nintendo, i am a user who is waited for the new switch to buy. But it was too expensive for this. 250? Nono i think 200 is good price for this. There are no hd vibrations and doc mods it is not good choice. I hope You can change it Nintendo.
