Despite me knowing of the XL coming, I still bought a Flame Red normal 3DS. I'm a guy though but I've always preferred the smaller model DS systems well other than the original that's a big as i'd ever want it. If they plan on using netflix though, i'd recommend the XL.

this is... not about size but how you use it.

but I've never felt the need to upgrade just for the size difference.

I can't say much for how they feel in my hand, since I've never owned a 3DS and will be getting the pink XL for Christmas. But having researched both of them thoroughly, I can honestly say that I would be disappointed in receiving the normal 3DS, and would probably return it to the store and get the larger one. Every girl is different though. I could never stand having the normal 3DS when there's a larger one on the market.

I have girl hands but I still want to upgrade to the XL for the screen. I have a friend who's only like 5' tall, and she really wants to upgrade to the XL too.

I think the screen on the regular 3DS is just too small for how high res it is. Maybe it's okay for 10-year-olds who don't mind playing with their faces crammed up to it, but I think most adults would prefer the XL.

I personally like my Flame Red 3DS and I think that the XL would be too big for my little hands, but I have friends on my 3DS that have the XL and they seem to like it... I still prefer the one I have though.

I do not have a 3DS yet, but I am a girl and from what I have played/seen, I prefer the regular 3DS. I don't like the bigness of the XL, or the pixel size.
The two most beautiful words in any language: I forgive.
