Yeah, while docked is nice for that sort of thing, but if your the only person who plays video games (or are interested in different types of games compared to you), than Handheld is better in my opinion.
I primarily play in Docked mode, and only really play in handheld if I'm sitting out on the couch with my family. It's partly because my right joy-con doesn't always work correctly, and my Switch has a scratch on the screen (that it got like literally a month after the warranty went up). The other reason is that I also just prefer how the pro-controller feels to the joy-cons.
Both, handheld for most of my VN's, Gunvolt, and now FE1. But for games like FE Three Houses/Warriors, Xenoblade, Smash, BotW, Under Night In Birth Exe:Late[cl-r], and any other RPG then docked. Some games just look better in handheld over docked and vice versa.
Though I sometimes play handheld a bit more, especially if I'm lying in bed since it's faster for me to turn off and put away.
I prefer to play in docked mode on my regular Switch (since the Switch Lite can only be played in handheld). I worry about the console getting damaged so I prefer to keep it docked for good measures. That and I love playing games on my large flat-screen TV, as both the sound and visual quality on it is very high. The Switch Lite is a bit more durable so I don't worry too much about it (especially since I have a travel case for it whenever I go on road trips), but I'm more cautious about the regular Switch, so I tend to leave it docked. I will, on occasion, play in handheld, but only for certain situations, like playing in my bedroom later in the evening so I don't disturb my bird when he's asleep (and both he and the TV are in the living room). But, generally, I tend to play in docked mode.
It depends where I am, and/or what game I'm playing.
If I'm at school I use it docked 99% of the time since I have a personal monitor that I hook it up to. I also have a dongle that allows me to use my Switch with bluetooth headphones (in either mode), so noise is not an issue.
If I'm at home, I'll play docked/handheld 70/30% of the time. That 30% comes when the whole house is asleep and I don't want to make a lot of noise (the Switch is hooked up on the first floor instead of the basement when I'm home), or if I'm playing a game that I don't want to get ridiculed for. For example, I'll play something like BotW, Pokemon, or even Fire Emblem docked, but I wouldn't play something like Tokyo Mirage Sessions or Catherine Full Body docked. (Not to say that TMS or Catherine are bad games by any means, just that I wouldn't feel comfortable if my parents or my sister walked in the room and saw me playing them )
I think most of the time I play handheld. There are exceptions - mainly BOTW and Super Smash Bros Ultimate. Most games I play almost exclusively handheld because playing on the TV is harder on my eyes.
I actually bought my Switch second hand without a dock, because I don't have a compatible TV. I occasionally play in tabletop mode, and it's fun, but handheld mode feels more cozy and relaxing to me. As a lifelong Pokemon fan, handheld gaming is what I'm used to.
