The Switch is great. Good quality Nintendo home console that's also the most powerful handheld ever by a wide margin. If they want to make a pure handheld, just make a smaller Switch with a longer battery life to facilitate longer play sessions and no dock or detachable joycons in order to reduce unit costs. Something like the fan-made "Switch Mini" mock-ups made some months back.

Going back to a traditional handheld that's its own distinct platform two generations less powerful than current-gen consoles would necessitate dividing their development efforts across two systems again. I'd much rather see Nintendo put all their franchises on a single platform that can serve as both a handheld and home console. The Switch is the perfect marriage of the two.
