    Hello,

    on my new 3DS XL you can see a little gap on the top left corner of the bottom screen when you look from a certain low angle.
    This is just visible if the unit is turned on, as you just see a bit of white light leaking.

    Can someone confirm if this is normal (by factoring tolerance)?

    It is not visible while looking from a normal angle while gaming, it just bothers me if my device is the only one.

    I will provide a picture later on, but its hard to catch this in a photo.

    One's inner self
    sounds like we have a deal breaker right here

    if you cant see it while playing or using the console noramlly why does it matter?

    Things like this always annoy me, because I think the device is possibly not properly assembled and the bottom screen is a bit "misaligned" which creates this gap.

    If others units were the same, I would be pacified. ;)

    I will take a picture tommorow.

    You have insufficient posts to view user location.
    just mark where it shows up in the picture and someone will likely be able to reproduce it if possible and assuming that person has enough analytic skills on the matter will be able to tell you if it is normal or whatever.
