I just bought the better half a pink 3DS XL yesterday and I've noticed a very small improvement in the hardware design: the hinge doesn't make a snapping noise. It's completely silent as it moves into both screen positions. This made me immensely jealous as when I get home late sometimes I wake her up when I open my 3DS. On the other hand, there seems to be at least one minor defect. When the 3DS is on, the screen backlight makes part of the shell glow near the buttons. If anyone else has a pink 3DS XL, I'd appreciate if you could confirm the same issue. Has anyone else noticed the new hinges? Are they present in any other models?
