Man Nintendo's got some of y'all whipped as fuck.

I’ve posted this before, but my screen has a scratch on it that drive me nuts. I have almost purchased a new switch a few times just because of that, and I have two different friends who would be willing to pay like a cheap price to take the old one if I get a new one. 

 

It’s a total luxury item for me, but the switch is the first Nintendo console I’ve purchased maybe ever when it wasn’t at the end of its life cycle. So I don’t feel too bad.

Is the screen still plastic?

 

It's apparently glass this time around.

Looks aren't everything, the old saying goes, but when the Nintendo Switch OLED is this good-looking it's hard to deny that looks are definitely important. As the name...

You take out 8 screws, pop the back panel, and remove 3 more screws. It’s pretty easy 

You remove 4 screws, pop the joycon open, take the battery out and the mid section, disconnect some ribbon cables and swap it.

The joycon is probably longer out of the two, but neither is what I would consider hard.

I was out with the wife yesterday when we saw one in stock at BB. I had 150$ in Visa Gift Cards from my birthday and plopped down the balance. Picked up Metroid Dread, which im saving for my downtime at work, as I leave on the 15th for 2 months. My OG switch is niw my work switch, the OLED will stay home.

The screen is incredible, ill give it that. Colors are bright, blacks are deep, it looks good.

Games still run like shit on it though. Nintendo gonna Nintendo.

Did you get a screen protector for it? Trying to decide if I should.

I know it comes with the protective film, but I'm still throwing another protector on top of the protector.

Pretty much echo everything you’ve heard. Screen is noticeably better, especially with games that use a lot of black. The entire unit feels sturdier. The dock is a lot nicer. It’s great having a fresh set of joy cons. I really like the damn thing.  
 

Otherwise it’s the same, outdated hardware and laggy OS!

Screen is absolutely beautiful, and the larger size isn't much but is noticeable. I love the white color of the Joycons. I'm strictly a handheld Switch gamer, so with the Gamestop trade-in of the previous Switch, the upgrade is worth it to me. But still, same laggy shit is annoying, but at least the frames look crisper while dropping.

Local Target said they had limited stock online. Went up there and the guy was nice enough to go get them off the truck. They only had 3. Thank goodness they had the white joy-cons because I wasn’t going to buy the red & blue.

And so did you check first online and then ran down there is that right? Like you can’t have them hold it.

There is limited stock at a nearby Target for the white. :thinking:

 

I feel like I would be cheating on the Deck by buying it especially since I rarely use the Switch.

I thought of that too, then I got ran over by a truck and figured fuck it I can have both lol. I’ll just sell my old phone I never use (i just use the backbone with my real phone now since I got an easy slip off case). I need to check Target.

Yeah they won’t hold it for you. Well, atleast my local Targets say they won’t. Don’t know about where you live.
