Thanks to our past failure experience,this grip distributes pressure evenly along the back of the console, joy-cons.
Scratch-Proof design with EVA pads, , portably slides 5 games in the back slots, esay to take out and in.
Very easy to grip and stick out differently, this asymetrical design creates the perfect spacing for comfortable play!
I originally purchased a Skull grip case, but no matter what I did, that case hurt my wrists to use. I also wasn’t thrilled with the execution for the price, or the fact that I had to constantly pop it in and out of the case if I wanted to use the joy-cons or the screen separately. I initially was trying to choose between the Saysfye and this. Since I had already purchased the Oivo clip for the pro controller and was impressed with the quality and execution of it, I gave this a shot. I wanted a case that made it more comfortable to use my switch as a single unit, and I am so glad I found this case! It is everything! The quality is great, the asymmetrical design is brilliant. I was skeptical at first, but once you use it, you realize exactly why you need it and why it makes sense. This design actually puts your hands in an ergonomic position - the skull case I mentioned did not. The cartridge slots in the back are my favorite feature - I love that I can switch between my favorite games on the fly. They are tension-fit, but they work beautifully. If you are buying this for or as someone who is rough on their electronics, I might worry that you could lose some cartridges after an afternoon of rough play, but you’d have more to worry about at that point with the switch than just a missing cart or two. The built-in stand is a nice touch. I didn’t think I’d use it much, but just used it yesterday and was happy to have it and glad it worked so well. When not in use, the stand folds over the tip of the unit, and is designed so that the headphone port and cartridge slot are still accessible. My only gripe is that the stand feels a little “loose” when in this position- I wish there were a firmer “click” into place when put up like this. But it is a minor complaint and doesn’t affect the overall experience at all. The Switch itself slides easily in and out of the case, and feels secure once in place. The only other thing on my wishlist for this case is a rubberized texture. The actual case is a hard plastic with very minimal texture on the handles. It hasn’t been a problem, but it would be nice for the case to feel more secure in my hand without needing to subconsciously apply more grip force to compensate for the lack of a rubberized texture. In conclusion, it feels like this is the case that the Switch should have come with from day 1. After plenty of use, my hands feel fine, and I have found that I use my pro controller much less since this offers greater convenience and more features. Give this a try if you’re in the fence!
I’m a 41 year old female with disposable income very new to gaming and Nintendo switch. I like nice things and will pay the premium if the trade off is worth it. I ordered the Mumba Battle, Skull and Co, Satisfye, and a few others that aren’t worth even mentioning. The Skull and Co is definitely very nice but then I was introduced to the asymmetrical handles like this and Satisfye and couldn’t go back. The Satisfye is by far the most comfortable, and immediately a no brainer for premium feel. The grips on that one has an nice rubber feel and more heft. This one though, does have the same shape, and the functionality of the stand on this one is much more usable because it can tilt to whatever angle you want. But the reason this one is a keeper is because it can hold games in the handle. My wife and I trade off BOTW and Animal Crossing daily and this saves the step of potentially losing the physical cartridge and keeps it all together. Our hands do not hurt and the switch also slides in and out easier with this one (but not too easy) for docking purposes. If you’re playing physical games this a great option and comfortable, better than anything else I found at Amazon or GameStop. If you’re digital, don’t use the stand often, and want the premium handheld feel, the Satisfye is very nice. But I did return the satisfye for this because of the functionality it provides and don’t regret it. The money saved went towards a wireless Pro controller.
This is an awesome grip. The position that I would hold my Switch would sometimes be uncomfortable and everyone recommended a certain popular grip. I came across a review for the Oivo grip and I like the addition of the kickstand so that I can just sit it up and use my joy cons. I totally feel comfortable laying back while I fish in Animal crossing without worrying if I might lose my grip and drop the Switch on my face LOL! The handles come in handy for if I’m adjusting on my couch or taking my godson to bed with holding him in one hand and one handle of the Switch grip in the other. I believe that the first version of this grip may not have been as secure but they doubled down on the security. I have no doubt that my Switch will always fit securely. One last thing is that I don’t intend to buy many physical games but a friend gave me their copy of Breath of the wild and I love that I can just put it in one of the five slots on the back of my grip, it slides in but doesn’t come out, no matter how hard you shake. I was able to pull the cartridge out with one finger so it’s pretty simple. I would recommend this grip to anyone with a Switch or Switch life (different grip though.)
This product had zero reviews but I decided to take a chance.
I've been playing my Switch in handheld mode for longer periods during the lockdown and began to notice a burning sensation in my lower arms/wrist area which is typical of strain (I have experienced RSI before as I use a PC for my work) so I began to research different grip cases for the console. I was really tempted by the positive reviews for the Satisfye case but this would require importing and I've had several parcels go missing from abroad (understandable given current events!), so I instead focused on this one. Could only find one YouTube review for the regular Switch version and the two reviews here but chose to take the plunge.
I've had this grip for just over a week now and I honestly can't imaging gaming without it. There's a reason why gaming controllers have evolved to have "arms" - it's so much more ergonomic and distributes a lot of the pressure during long gaming sessions. This grip takes that comfort and applies it to the Switch in portable mode which is just fantastic. It feels robust, holds the Switch well and overall provides a much nicer experience. The kickstand on the back means you don't have to use the pretty flimsy one built into the console and the addition of game cart slots is a nice touch. I personally use the stand as a nice way to display my console on a shelf when I'm not playing with it - as someone with a large game collection, this is a nice touch.
If you’re looking for a grip for your Nintendo Switch then the one from OIVO is definitely worth your time and money.
Purchased this grip as spending long time on Switch in handheld mode with Animal Crossing New Horizon. This grip definitely upgrade the Switch by a large margin. The added grip on the side make the Switch handles like the Pro Controller or a PS4 controller, which makes long hours gaming session much more comfy.
I got this Nintendo Switch grip because I was suffering from cramps and aches in my hands after playing Animal Crossing for prolonged periods of time in handheld mode. If you're like me and rarely dock your Nintendo Switch, then this is an essential Switch accessory to have!
