    So I wanted to ask if the graphics of new 3DS xl are better than new 2DS xl. Because I bought new 2DS xl, did a lot of settings and came to know that the resolution of new 3DS xl is higher. Is that sadly really true? Or am I mistaken?... I am feeling down because I am not a rich guy and opened my new 2DS xl few days ago and did a lot of settings and cant return in good price... I am really sensitive about my gadgets in terms of screen quality..

    The N2DSXL is identical to the N3DSXL in terms of specs and power. The only difference is, it doesn't have the 3D.

    In answer to your question about the "graphics" - there is no difference between any of the consoles in the 3DS family. They all run the same software and graphics processor.

    The 400 vs 800 is in relation to the 3d. The 3d uses double the pixels to render two images in the same screen space. That's all.

    Ok, and one more thing. Some people say that new 2DS xl's screen is not as "reflective from a side". And that happens to be true, so does it look different from the front?

    Afaik it effectively all looks the same. Lack of reflectiveness is a good thing with screens, though, as it means you can see what it is you're playing.

    That's the IPS vs TN screen issue, IPS is better. N3DS may come with either at random, N2DS is TN only
