My white DS Lite has a cracked hinge. I'll get it changed, but I was wondering if it would be better to pick one of the "new" DS Lites instead... Is the problem fixed?

I bet they at least try to get rid of problems with the latest Lite waves. I've got a black one and it doesn't look as "iPodish" as the white one. Neither it has the hinge problem but these Scandinavian models might be from a newer production line anyway so the problem was fixed already with tightening the screws too much.

I'd be curious to know whether the US onyx ones have yellow touch screens.

Mine does

The blacks seem to all carry that yellow screen. My case isnt cracking at all though.

That's bad news. Can anyone else confirm that all north american black ds lite have yellow touch screen?

I plan on purchasing a black ds lite this weekend. But if this is true, I think I will go with navy blue then.

I deny it. I have checked two US blacks, they have the grid touch screen. Same with pink. on all 4 that i looked at (2 black, 1 pink, 1 white that was shipped shortly after the onyx/pink release) No yellow screens, but the white was neither yellow nor grid.

PS, be diffeent and go with Ice Blue

What do you mean by 'grid' touch screen? Is it a bad thing?

As for the Ice Blue color, I don't think it's available in Canada.

No, grid touch screen is good. Basically grid is clearer and has a softer feel than grainy.
Some people equate the grainy with a yellow tint, but that's not true.

I heard that black ds lites attract more fingerprints, and that navy blue attracts least fingerprints. Is this true, is it a big issue?

If not I will go ahead and purchase a ds lite black. Thanks.

You leave fingerprints on whatever you touch.

But, I recently got my White DS Lite replaced, (2 weeks ago), and to my dismay...it cracked.

I'm was planning to send it in anyway, it had 2 dead pixels.

EDIT: Oops, didn't see that the topic was about the new colours. But just reporting the white ones probably still can crack.

Its not that "white" ones crack, but a few defective ones did, it does not apply to all of them.

I had to replace my white DS with a new one when they first came out because of a broken mic. One thing I noticed different is they added rubber stopper pads on the top screen so it close's quieter and probably softens the close when its snapped shut.
