    have kind of a weird question about my 3ds, about a week ago I bought an new Mario and Luigi dream team 3ds xl and after a while I started to notice that the top screen was a little idk, uneven with the bottom screen. It might just be my imagination but i just wanted to know if anyone else had this issue

    I think OP means his top screen is a bit off center or slightly angled.

    Might need a better shot. Try opening the ds open so it lays flat, and get a straight shot of it.

    The bottom screen just seems a little too far to the right, but then again it may be just be my imagination

    With pics like that, it will be impossible to see it.

    To me, and I could be imagining it, it looks like the right hand side is slightly lower than the left

    get a metric ruler and measure it. Pics won't help unless you have a really good scanner

    Do you mean the aspect ratio? The top is 16x9 AR and the bottom's 4x3 AR so clearly they're not evened but who doesn't know this already?

    He means that the screen on top is at an angle(slightly down on the right hand side)

    Good thing you brought that up, I just noticed it too but it's such a minimal detail that it goes unnoticed.
