I rarely docked my switch and I love having a D-pad and better a battery so I got myself a Switch Lite.
I honestly love it and haven't had any issues with the joystick yet.
I wish it had HD rumble though.
The only difference compared to the Switch is that you can't dock and you can't switch out the controllers.
The last part is especially troublesome as I am already having drifting issues with the joystick.
DO NOT BUY!
