The New 2DS XL also makes some notable quality-of-life improvements over its more premium sibling, including a protective flap that keeps your game cartridges from accidentally popping out. Unlike the 3DS XL, the New 2DS XL actually includes a charger, and allows you to swap microSD cards without having to unscrew the back panel with a very specific screwdriver.
Based on a review posted on alphr.com, Nintendo 2DS XL was rated as fairly average for display performance relative to competing video game console services. Check out the entire review here. From this review:
With its clamshell design and crisp colour combinations, the New Nintendo 2DS XL is a thing of quiet beauty. Opening the lid reveals that the 2DS XL has also adopted the New 3DS’s C Stick nubbin and the New 3DS XL’s spacious screens, with the lower touchscreen hiding Amiibo support underneath. It may not have the customisable interchangeable covers of its siblings, and it might still look somewhat more childlike than the more angular New 3DS and New 3DS XL, but it’s a decent step forward. It feels pleasingly chunky in the hand and build quality is, as always, solid.
