Nintendo DSi XL[]

The Nintendo DSi XL is the larger and more widely popular re-release of the original Nintendo DSi. The main difference being in the two is that the XL version was almost 60% larger and Nintendo claimed, "It's easier to grip." It also came pre-loaded with a few more programs than the original did.

Extra Programs[]

  • Brain Age: Arts and Letters
  • Brain Age: Math and Numbers
  • Flipnote Studio
  • Photo Clock
  • Web Browser

Battery Life[]

The battery life of the XL version was said to be longer and take less time to charge up. The only part that was true was that fact that the battery lasts longer. It didn't take less time to charge up though.
