Nintendo Switch OLED Model Review

Nearly five years after the Switch first launched, Nintendo has come out with an upgraded version of the immensely popular console. The Nintendo Switch OLED Model may not be exactly what those initial rumours were claiming – and whether it’s worth forking out for the upgrade will vary from person to person – but there is a lot to love about the new device, starting with the screen itself.

As the name suggests, this model features an OLED display compared to the LCD display featured in the original Switch. Not only that, but the screen is also 7 inches, compared to 6.2 inches on the original Switch. The OLED Model’s display is both brighter and bigger.

The other thing to note is how striking and pleasing to the eye the game’s darker rooms appear on the OLED screen. An OLED panel is able to display more accurate and deeper black colours (on the original Switch’s LCD screen, they appear slightly grey), resulting in a clearer picture. The advantages of an OLED display means that games like Metroid Dread can really utilise lighting to achieve more impressive visual results.

While it’s not getting as much attention, the improved sound on the OLED Model thanks to the new onboard speakers is worth highlighting. The speakers produce clearer and crisper audio, which is not only an obvious benefit when playing games in tabletop mode but also proves to be a useful tool in enhancing the mood and atmosphere in games such as Metroid Dread and Tetris Effect, if you don’t have a pair of headphones lying around.

The OLED Model’s display and speakers make it the optimal way to play Nintendo Switch games when in handheld and tabletop modes, and Nintendo has made a smart move timing the console’s release with the launch of Metroid Dread, a terrific game to show off the new features.

The device comes with a few other improvements. The increase in internal storage, now double at 64GB, is a very welcome addition that allows for more games to be downloaded to the console, but if you primarily buy your games digitally, you’ll likely want to expand that space further with a MicroSD card.

Elsewhere, the kickstand has been drastically improved over the flimsy one found in the original Switch. The OLED Model’s kickstand is larger and feels more solid, while also being adjustable which gives you control over the angle of the screen. If tabletop mode is something you do often with the Switch, this feature upgrade will be very appreciated. The dock has also undergone a little bit of a redesign, looking sleeker and more modern with its lovely rounded edges, along with the inclusion of an ethernet port.

It’s clear that the OLED Model is the best Nintendo Switch on the market. For those who don’t have a Switch, this is very clearly the best time to experience one. The improvements to the OLED Model make hybrid gaming – switching between TV and handheld modes – and playing on the go more satisfying than before, and in 2021 there is absolutely no shortage of top-quality games for the platform.
