Review: Nintendo Switch OLED is a striking upgrade for portable players

If you’re an avid Switch player who mainly plays in portable mode, quite simply you’ll be wanting to upgrade to this. Whether you actually will, considering the hefty $349.99 / £310 asking price and limited improvements beyond the screen, is a different matter. But it certainly feels like a meaningful improvement over the original model when it’s in your hands.

  • OLED display is a huge upgrade
  • The new stand is also a significant improvement
  • Feels more premium
  • Virtually no improvements for TV play
  • No, it's not the 4K upgrade we were hoping for
