Tempered Glass Screen Protector
The hybrid Nintendo portable console has a large, beautiful capacitive touch screen – but the 6.2-inch screen of the switch is not tempered glass like the screen of your phone. It is made of plastic. That is, it will never break, which is good! It also means that it is easily scratched. This is bad.
Fortunately, this is a simple solution: Tempered glass protective films protect the Nintendo Switch's screen from scratches, dings, and signs of wear – with the additional benefit of giving the screen a higher-quality touch.
Better yet, glass protection films are easier to install than plastic protection films, so you can enjoy a safer, bubble-free display.

Nintendo Switch Pro Controller
The detachable joy-con controllers included with the Nintendo Switch are nice, but if you want to improve your game, you'll need a full-size gamepad – and the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller is the gold standard.
The official pro controller not only features a comfortable, offset dual-stick layout, large, comfortable facial buttons, and satisfying shoulder buttons, but is the only official gamepad that supports Nintendo's "HD Rumble" force feedback. However, it has a small error: The D-pad of the Pro controller is just fine. Still, it's still the ideal controller for most Nintendo Switch games.

If you're a fan of HD Rumble, be forewarned: The rumble features of the SN30 Pro do not have the subtlety of Nintendo's proprietary controller. Nevertheless, you can not overcome the feeling of these SNES buttons.

Bring Your Own Gamepad
If you do not like any of these native switch gamepads, you have another option: literally every other controller. If you have a free PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Wii Remote, or Wii U Pro Controller lying around, you can sync it to your Nintendo Switch using the 8BitDo Wireless Bluetooth Controller Adapter. A decent solution if you already have many controllers.
Oh, and if you're a PC player, the dongle can be used to connect Nintendo Switch Controller to your PC as well. Not bad.

More storage space with a microSD card
The Nintendo Switch is great – but it does not have much internal memory. If you buy your games digitally, it will not be long before you've filled up the console's 32GB of internal memory.
