    If that is yours you don't have to hold it at that extreme angle. The easiest is using a black background and viewed at an angle it will go whitish. Or the easiest is to just go to that site on reddit where they have black boxes and that is how some are telling if its ips or tn that way. And to tell you the truth the ips thing is really not a big deal when it comes to the 3ds. I had a ips but then got a tn and I rather play the tn screen more. Just choose what you like. But know that you aren't going to play your 3ds at an angle so just test out what you think is best for the games.

    And in my opinion the only thing I was picky on is the bleed out of the screens. Some were horrific and I never know how it passed Nintendo QC people.

    Based on the instructions, and the presumptions made in that other forum, I'd say you have IPS.

    Looks like an IPS screen, if you still aren't convinced use a sharper angle and change the theme to pink.

    Disable wireless and look at the indicator in the top left corner. If you can read it at an angle, it's IPS. BTW, is it an XL model?

    Yeah, it looks like an IPS screen. It shouldn't be hard to tell at all, if the colours don't dramatically wash out at an angle like the botton screen, it's IPS.

    Have you seen a n3ds with two IPS screens? I was going to return this 3ds but i decided to keep it since I thought I had an IPS.

    From what I know the bottom screen is always TN. Not like it's used for anything important anyway, so it shouldn't matter.
