48 hours with the Switch OLED: Why not the same, Nintendo?
Nintendo Switch (ニ ニ テ テ ド ー スイッチ, Nintendō Suitchi?) Is a videogame console developed by Nintendo. Known in development by its name code «NX», it was announced in October 2016 and was launched worldwide on March 3, 2017. Nintendo considers Switch a hybrid console. It can be used as a desktop console with the main unit inserted into a coupling station to connect it with a TV. Alternatively, it can be extracted from the base and used similarly to a tablet through its touch screen, or placed on a surface thanks to its integrated plastic support, being visible by several players. The switch uses two wireless controllers called JOY-CON, which includes four standard action buttons and a directional joystick, as well as sensors for high-definition touch motion and touch feedback, although they differ on some buttons and additional features. Two joy-with can be connected to each side of the console to be used as a portable console, connect to the Grip accessory provided next to the console for use as a more traditional control, or be used individually in hand as the Wii control, and This way is used with local multiplayer games. You can also use certain wireless and / or wireless controls that does not include the console, adopted as Pro Controller, which include the same characteristics as traditional controls with the exception that this includes NFC detection for Amiibo and HD vibration. Games for this console and other applications are available as Flash ROM physical cartridges and as a digital distribution, and do not use region blockade. The switch competes in the market of the video consoles with its contemporary PlayStation 5 of Microsoft and Xbox Series X | S despite the fact that these two compete with each other. The concept of the switch emerged as a nintendo reaction to several quarters of financial losses in 2014, attributed to the bad sales of its previous console, Wii U, as well as greater competition in the Games Market for mobile devices. Subsequently, the president of Nintendo, Satoru Iwata, prompted the company in the direction of mobile games and the creation of a totally new hardware. The design of the switch is aimed at a wide demographics of videogame players through its multiple modes of use. Nintendo opted to use more standard electronic components, such as a processor based on the TEGRA line of NVIDIA, to make the development of the console easier for programmers and more compatible with existing gaming engines. As the Wii U had difficulty obtaining the support of external studies, leaving it with a weak game library, Nintendo sought the support of many developers and editors to help build the switch games library along with Nintendo s own titles, including many independent videogame studies. Before the launch, Nintendo had announced that more than 100 titles were developing by 70 developers. Nintendo sold more than 2.74 million units of the console in its first month of being on sale, overcoming the initial projection of 2 million units that made the company, and becoming the desktop console that has been sold faster of its history. The sales of the switch were well linked to those of the acclaimed video game by the critical The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, which was put on sale on the same day as the console around the world. On September 20, 2019, a revised version of Nintendo Switch was launched, maintaining the size of the old version and with a longer battery life. This thanks to a new rechargeable lithium-ion battery of 13.6 WH (watts-hour), while the first version was 16 WH.
The Switch OLED is here: After a monthly patience game, Nintendo has finally brought the new console to market. In the first 48 hours I was able to convince myself from the eponymous OLED display - and I m excited. Homework has Nintendo but elsewhere. A report from Kaan Gürayer.
When Nintendo announced the Switch OLED at the beginning of July, I did not hesitate long: On the one hand, I was therefore aimed for a long time after a switch pro (and in need of flying the devil stops and sat down with an OLED model), on the other hand, I feared one Scalper Army, which could make the Switch OLED well with a similar rare as currently PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. On time for the launch day, I held my Nintendo Switch OLED in the hands and has been a good 48 hours with the new Nintendo Spend console.
Nintendo Switch OLED in the short review
My impressions in short form:
OLED display : The OLED is a revelation! On the other hand, the LC display of my old switch looks like a piece of technology stone time. Colors look more alive, the contrasts have finally deserved their name and black is now black - and not just a very dark gray. Older games that I had long sashed by shining on the Switch OLED in the truest sense of the word in a new splendor. The Rainbow Road in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe never looked better. display size : The 0.8 inch larger display may hardly be worth mentioning on the paper, but in practice it makes a huge difference. The games seem more immersive. For me, who used to be very rarely on the TV anyway, there is hardly a reason to put the switch in the dock. Speaker : The for me perhaps the biggest surprise at the Switch OLED are the improved speakers. The blades now are good and are once again a clear piece of louder than the original switch. To be silent from the Switch Lite. Working quality : I like to go, I am a technical snob. For me, the form is at least as important as the function. That s why I m Apple users. The original switch and also Switch Lite are processed and look like children s toys. No comparison to my iPhone or MacBook. I ve always been a bit ashamed to be seen outside with a switch. With the new Switch OLED, this is no longer the case. The black and white model looks really cool and the back is almost as clean and minimalist, as I know it from Apple products. It also works more valiant and more stable in the hand.

What you have to know about the switch OLED, we show in video :
Nintendo complicates the data moving
Nevertheless, I also criticize: however, it refers less to the switch OLED than on Nintendo itself. The data moving from a switch to the other is so unnecessarily tedious and complicated - from Apple here is no trace. In the future, that should be really better.
