"Awesome portable game system, best model yet"
Mr. P. R. Bastin
The best DS iteration so far, as long as you don't mind the lack of stereoscopic 3D.
It has worse speakers than the New 3DS XL and also has a habit of getting marks on the top screen from the buttons on the bottom (not scratches, just whatever grime was on the surface of the buttons).
But it's smaller and lighter than the New 3DS XL while keeping the same screen size and battery life, I also found the dpad and shoulder buttons to be far more comfortable to hold. Also the wobbly hinge of past XL models is finally gone! The matte plastic is also awesome, no more scratches on the outer shell. It also has a dust guard for the game card slot and the SD card slot is right next to it, meaning you don't have to use a screwdriver to swap them out any more.
