Don't see why it has to be mutually exclusive, it is set up to be played on a TV and you can carry it around as well.

Nintendo originally stated that the Switch was a "home console first", but then they released the Switch Lite, which is a "dedicated handheld". So it really belongs to both categories, as it can be used as either a fully functioning home console that never leaves the dock, or a fully functioning handheld that never touches the dock.

Based on some other communities I've seen, the Switch should be classified as a home console when you're negatively comparing it to the other home consoles and a handheld when you want to praise devs for 'getting something like THIS running on a handheld' :P

Nah but serious, I'd just classify it as both, cause that's what it is, ya know? (Switch Lite excluded, obviously, that's just a handheld)
