Nah I just didn’t want to fall into the trap of repeating myself or coming across argumentative, it’s odd explaining a point you know to be true and seeing multiple people refute it - or even suggest it’s down to lack of care, something very much not in my nature. A picture of my own will clear it up I guess!Suits wrote: ↑July 10th, 2019, 8:13 pmI've got no interest in labouring anyone as a minority, I just want to know more about something I wasn't aware of.hazeredmist wrote: ↑July 10th, 2019, 7:46 pmI’ve got a New 3DS and there is an imprint of the analogue on the top screen so it either wasn’t addressed or I’ve been rather unlucky (as have many when I looked it up when I noticed it). Like I say I treat my kit very well.
Seems we’re at risk of labouring this one with me in a minority, so we can agree to disagree about these build quality issues and I’ll post no further about it
So, these are my two, multiple 100+ hour, internationally travelled, 'New' 3DS's. Standard and XL. I can't see anything close to the issues that affected the first version.
I know the first version suffered, so much so, people would place a soft cloth between the screens when they'd fold it away (I know a member of the staff here that still does this !!).
I always thought that the inclusion of a higher bezel on the bottom screen and rubber nodes on the top panel, solved this issue - clearly not.
My own New 3DS is in its case somewhere I’d disturb sleeping beauty if I seek it out right now, but I’ll snap it when I can so you see what I mean. Here’s some dude mentioning it on Reddit, just one of many threads on the matter with this model online https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/amp.redd ... ds_non_xl/
It’s been used a decent amount but only by me, lives in a very good case and is kept clean. It isn’t ever pressed together in a pocket as some guy suggests in this Reddit thread.
When I noticed it, I was fairly dismayed, it doesn’t clean away. I’m less bothered now but at the time it was quite annoying. But it is real, at least in my device
