Opening Statement: I got the handheld recently and it's really nice. Really sleek. Really smooth and really bright.
Look: 8/10: The DS Lites that are shown are exactly what the system looks nice. But with Nintendo using the plastic in certain places it looks kinda off. I look at the top and when only a part of it is has plastic it just has an off look. Still nice.
Buttons: 9.5/10: The buttons are way more functional and work very well. But in some cases I've had an issue that when I read a review it saying that you can pull off more drifts in MKS now I don't suck at MKS but I tested it and I didn't see a vast improvement like from what I've read and heard.
Brightness: 10/10: This thing is BRIGHT. Brighter then PSP bright. It actually makes my sight see things darker(Electronic things not stuff like people or the sun). But it's not too bright.
Portability: 10/10: Unless you are metro sexual. You won't have a problem or if you need a case.
Games for it: 9/10: It's no different. But the line up still kicks ass til' this day.
Overall: 9.5/10: A worth it upgrade. I've gotten no problems and tomorrow I'm calling Nintendo about my touch screen. Peace.
