    So i'm going on vacation in a few weeks, and i'm going to take a DS system with me (the DS is my favorite Nintendo handheld!), but i can't decide if i should take my DSi or my DS Phat with me!
    All that matters for me is the battery life, the camera and things like that doesn't really matter to me (i rarely use the camera).
    Can you guys tell me if the battery life is better with the DSi or with the DS Phat?
    Thanks!

    Huh, if you're going for battery life, why not a DS Lite ? I think that's the one which can last the longest, aside from DSi XL...

    DSi would be better cause DS Phat screen looks awful.

    Wow, that's exactly what he asked about and not unrelated in the slightest.
