    I really feel like I have to say this, and I'm not trolling I swear. I purchased a switch recently and I found myself not liking the feel of it in my hands. Compared to other "True" portables it's just too damn big. Now I'm not one to complain,I wrestled in college so complaints tend to go out the window, simply put, It's super rare that I ever bitc#. I payed for this thing because Nintedno advertises it as a portable and while technical by definition it is "portable", it's just too damn big to take any where with me w/o a backpack. I got in a huge argument with my brothers and we even got into the Webster's definition of portable. They both think it's a portable in the sense that a laptop and tablet are portable. Technically they are right but damnit, imho if it doesn't fit in your pocket, it's not a "True" portable. They need to make a smaller version asap, Who's w/ me?

    Portable, not tiny pocketable.
    Go get a man purse, messenger bag or whatever and stop complaining.
    Any smaller and the text becomes unreadable... it is quite unreadable already tbh.

    Um the ability to fit on your pocket is not the meaning of portable..... A portable honda generator will not fit in your pocket. Portable means it functions on its own with out external need and can be carried around. A laptop is portable and it dont fit in your pocket......

    "Um" did you use voice input lol? No, type in the definition of portable of google. It it states and I quote

    Portable - able to be easily carried or moved, especially because of being a lighter and smaller version than usual.

    This definition is open to interpretation as easy is an opinion. Also I stated that technically I am incorrect, I was just stating that it isn't really a conventional portable size.

    Damn, I'm 5'6 150lbs and my hands are pretty damn small no lie. Maybe.I should just get big son lol. But honestly alot of people are about in size (especially in japan). A smaller model would sell well also don't you think?

    Its but like nintendo lied about the size. It's fairly obvious in the ads that its a larger size than will fit in your pockets.
    Also no matter what people complain about the size. People say it's too big, others say it's too small. Can't cater to everyone.
    You should have known full and well going into it that it wouldn't fit in your pocket, especially this late into the life when it should have been fairly obvious what the size is.
    Portable != pocketable
    By definition it is portable, but no it won't fit in your pocket.
    Its not nintendo's fault you somehow managed to think it would fit in a pocket.

    No, it's really not an opinion at this size and weight. A desktop is not portable, but this <3 pound item that fits in a small bag is definitely easy to carry around, it's just not pocketable or as convenient as something like a 3ds.
    It would be like saying "calling a tablet portable is an opinion", such is just flat out wrong

    I'm sure they're are ways of addressing this, descale resolution the resoltution of games to match the screen size. And there is no such thing as a man purse, anyone who's says otherwise is gender confused lmao jk. I'd rather have use backpack though.

    I'm not the only one that wants a smaller model. Nintendo doesn't have to please everyone, just the majority of it's small statutered population as well as myself. I share it with a few people so it's not like I was the only one in on the buying decision. I feel you though, but you have to feel me too.

    what about a portable home.....I don't think I could fit that in my pocket, portable generally just means self contained and designed to be moved easily (in comparison to a non portable version of the thing in question)

    Lol, whatever you call it. But you should understand, use a backpack if it doesn't annoy you, or a messenger bag if you find a backpack to big or if it makes your back sweat... It shouldn't really be a problem.

    I agree, I admitted that. I have my own wierd definition called a "True" portable wich apparently just means pocketable

    if you disconnect the joycons and put them in your other pocket it might be pocketable (depending on pocket sizes)

    I thought about but I was worried about the analogs. I guess the vita manages though, but it's pretty big too.... chill I'm joking, I believe the switch could work at this size also.

    If anything a Switch Mini is in order, the Switch itself is fine, but I don't see it getting any larger.
