Does the Switch support headphones over USB-C?
The Switch supports headphones, but only in tabletop and handheld mode
Can you bypass the dock by using a third party USB-C to HDMI cable for TV output?
Not yet, but Reggie Fils-Aimé has said he has "no doubt" there will be some in the future

I just checked. The Switch costs more than double the price in India. I'm rather buying a oneplus 3t next week

Someone fire their marketing division. India used to be budget friendly only. Now people are willing to pay big bucks but double is ridiculous

Maybe convert some Rupees into USD and order one once the new shipment comes out?

Import from Japan. It costs almost double where I live at independent retailers (not officially released yet).

Wait, so the Switch AND the Joycons need to be charged?
How do you know when the Joycons need charging?
How do you know when the Switch needs charging?
You mentioned that to charge the Joycons, you can also attach them and play in handheld mode. If I always play in handheld mode and always have the Joycons attached, I'll never need to charge the Joycons, right? What do you mean by it only charges them "Within a certain threshold"?
What are all the differences between the Joycons and the pro controller?
The pro controller is a replacement for the Joycons, right?
What things can't you do if you don't have a smartphone? Do I really have to go out and buy a smartphone to fully enjoy the Switch?

Yup.

Controller options shows you the charge on the JoyCons.

Battery indicator, top right.

Right.

If your JoyCons' batteries are very very low, it charges them a bit.

D-Pad on the pro, no IR on the pro, JoyCons = 1 OR 2 controllers.

Fulswick posted...

Almost. Like I said, no IR camera and games like 1 - 2 Switch can't be played with a pro.

About the smartphone, we have no info, sorry.

This is incorrect. The headphone jack functions in TV mode. However, you'll probably want an extension cord, OR, if you've got bluetooth headphones, a wireless transmitter.


I know this because I connect my own wireless transmitter to the headphone jack every time I power up the Switch.
