    Going to make screen protectors and every source I find different measurements and I don't know which is right or wrong.

    The 3DS official site from Nintendo says

    Upper = 3.02 inch x 1.81 inch

    Lower = 2.42 inch x 1.81 inch


    seems very small..

    I think I figured it out...if anyone can confirm:

    Upper is 5.3 x 3.22

    Lower is 4.27 x 3.22

    inches

    that is roughly 2.5 by 2 inches which sounds right
    top is 3 by 2 inches

    the bottom screen is the same size as the ds lites and the top is just a wider ds lite screen size wise.

    Remember that when they give one measurement as the size of the screen, it's the diagonal measurement.

    Not when you're looking for the dimensions. [​IMG]

    I've always though that was stupid to measure the screen diagonally for the 'size' especially when portions of the screen were obscured by the bezel/frame.
