    Well I first noticed the difference without comparing the consoles side-by-side. And I agree the original 3DS' screens are too blue, but my New 2DS XL's ones are really too yellow. Still, my New 3DS XL has more yellow than the Old one, but shows better quality nonetheless.

    I wouldn't worry too much about White balance accuracy on a handheld console with a low budget screen. As long as the screen is an improvement over the older 3DS and looks more colorful thats all that matters. And a color accurate screen will probably look even yellower then your New 3DS XL, if your New 3DS XL is still on the Blueish side like mine is.

    If you want to know what color accurate looks like I heard the Iphone's 7 and up are close to accurate. So if you have a Iphone 7, 8 or X then you'll have an idea what color accuracy is.

    My 2ds only had a TN (duh)
    But my New 3DS XL I checked with 3ds id tool and the top screen is IPS.

    Nintendo doesn't strictly colour-calibrate the displays, so some units may have warmer colours than others. The same also applies to other consoles like the Switch.

    Color Calibration doesn't really matter for Video Games since they don't have any color standards as far as I know.
    And every developer just does what they want, so you wont have consistency and you'll never know what their original intent is.

    I don't agree with that, there isn't a color calibration for each domain like video game or movies industry : the calibration is something objective that can be measured and so the "intent" as you say could be displayed if these consoles had screens with DeltaE < 3 for all colors and a color temp around 6600K.

    I found a little trick to get better colors on some display panels : turning the Power Saving mode ON. The strange fact is that it grants better colors on some devices but simply look uglier on some others.

    In the case of my New 2DS XL (which has a double TN panel that I find too yellow) it considerably improves the colors.

    Impossible to tell from the picture. Show it at an angle in a dark room.

    Or jailbreak it (http://3ds.guide) and use screeninfo.3dsx or 3dsident to know

    will jailbreaking it risk bricking my 3ds or is it as safe as homebrewing a wii?

    There's always a risk (even on a Wii), but as long as you read & follow instructions carefully, it's unlikely anything will happen.

    I imported a USA version New 3DS XL (I am in UK), it is the Hyrule Edition version. It will only accept USA games (so I have to import my games also) and I can't buy any games from the Nintendo online shop, I think because my address associated with my payment card is UK and not USA, so I got an error message from the online shop if I remember right. But my console has the dual IPS screens and it is wonderful as a result, compared to the NN3DSXL's (2nd hand and new) that I tried in UK shops which all had the TN washed out screens. My console's serial number is QW1131193X X.

    I think that's the UK equivalent of whatever a pawn shop is.

    If you possess your 3DS with CFW, 3DSident has a neat feature of identifying what your panels are for you.

    Dual IPS non-XL New 3DS here :D

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    Also, just for the instance, since 2DSes only have a single screen for both the top and the bottom, how are single-IPS 2DSes possible? :P
