    I just got a New 3DS Xl with fw11.3 (not CFW...yet) 3 days ago and I notice something wrong about it. the problem is when I use the console in the place where Wi-fi signal is really low and then start to open any default apps(setting,mii verse,3ds camera,etc.) or Games (both cartridge and form the e-shop) the 3DS went to black screen for around 10-20 seconds then the Nintendo's splash screen came up and the game/apps start normally But when I turn the Wi-Fi function off or change the place where it have high signal of Wi-Fi The games/app will start the splash screen without any black screen. This is really bother me and bring me with a question.Is this normal? Do other people's 3DS the same as mine?

    (if you need some more detail,I can make a video about this)
    Thanks

    Can't say I've ever experienced that. If you wait until wifi is connected (it says "Internet" in blue in the top left) before launching anything, does it still happen? Maybe it's trying to connect to wifi anytime you start something.

    It will happen only when the wi-fi is connected but with 1 bluebar of signal or lower. the game/app will open normal when the wifi says enable because it can't connect to any signal yet or when i turn the wifi off.

    I have the same issue on my Switch, when I play it in the bedroom, where the Wi-Fi signal is low. When I put it in the cradle which is connected by an Ethernet cable or turn on the airplane mode, games starts quicker in compare to a poor Wi-Fi connection.

    I have noticed that on phone games, but never on 3ds games.

    Inside your miiind, and poof.
    As the WiFi signal decreases, the speed decreases along with it basically.

    Does your 3DS acts like this too?

    It counts with any device, that's just how WiFi works.
