the switch has this mechanism that you can dock it so you could play it on Tv, computer, etc, or you could play it handheld, which could be useful if you're going somewhere and don't wanna stop playing, or some for some other stuff. If you own one, then which one do you prefer or like more?
I mostly use it on the doc, and also prefer it on the doc.

I like it on TV, but I rarely get to use it on there, as I most of the time watching other TV. So, most times I use it on handheld mode.

I usually play it docked, because drift is ass to work with.

I have a personal Switch (Lite) and a family Switch (original model). I use my personal Switch more often due to the nature of portability, but docked Switch is definitely a better experience overall due to higher resolution and couch multiplayer.

using it docked is definitely the ideal way to play for me. i only bring it with me if i'm staying somewhere else for more than a day. since my joycons drift like mario kart, whenever i play in handheld mode, i put the switch on a table or my legs and use my pro controller (the leg way is just as uncomfortable as it sounds). but yea. whenever i have the chance to play on a tv i take that chance

Docked is the best and only way to play Switch. Although I mostly play tabletop.

ive literally never played docked LMAO i dont have my own tv and i dont wanna set it up to my parents tv to not bother them. even though my mom still suggests occacionally i check it out
so i only ever play tabletop which isnt an option in the poll for some reason. baiscally just detaching your joycons and using the switchs kickstand. i actually like it that way, at least until i get my own tv sometime in the future or something

Honestly, I always go for docked mode. I can get a bigger view of the screen and the graphics stand out a lot more. Also, I don't have to use the Joycons, because mine are drifty as hell.

I've played it mostly handheld, but have recently been playing a few games docked. But most of the time, I don't really have access to a TV that that isn't the family one.

I practically only use handheld. I just find handheld more convenient (which is why I vastly prefer handhelds in general), plus having it docked takes up valuable hdmi ports I would rather use for other consoles. I also don't find docked that much more enjoyable than handheld either, so I only use docked when I need to record footage longer than 30 secs or when I'm playing Ring Fit Adventure. My current Joy Cons thankfully don't drift (And I don't have/want a pro controller anyways). There hasn't been many times where I would want to use tabletop mode.
