    If you can't tell the difference already, it shouldn't matter.

    You can just look at it and be able to tell. But it at a weird angle and see if the colors turn into shit

    CTR_Aging can tell.
    Though you should be able to tell; if your screen looks like your phone screen then it's IPS.
    If it has crappy viewing angles and colors shift when you move it around, it's TN.


    BTW, no console is guaranteed dual IPS...
    just send in your dual TN for a repair but tell them you want two IPS panels.

    Almost correct: on my (TN) console, the viewing angle is more than the range of stabilized 3D anyway :)

    I have a Fates N3DSXL, and the top is IPS but the bottom is TN. Came from Spain, not sure if that matters.
    But what's the problem with sliding top screen ? I actually liked making my screen slide on my other N3DSXL during loading times :P

    EVERY N3DS has TN !
    Only N3DS XL COULD be IPS or TN
    You have DOUBLE IPS on your N3DS XL why you arent just happy

    Um. No. Both small new 3DS and XLs have IPS.

    Really? Could you show me an example photo? (Not doubting you, just my curiosity since I've never seen one.)

    Where are you getting your facts?
    Most Pokémon edition n3DS smalls have IPS. As far as I know, ALL small n3DSes produced after March 2016 have IPS screens.
