Is there any sort of fix to get the top screen to be not tinted when the 3D is off? If the 3D is even slightly turned on, the yellow tint goes away, but then the screen gets that "wavy" effect (I can't always sit in the right positions for the 3D).

Is there a reason they made it this way? I can only think it may be battery-saving or something. My power-save is turned off, and brightness is turned all the way up.

No way to avoid it. It's just Nintendo's poor quality LCD's they use. Even their new regular 3DS models have that problem.

Its odd that the problem goes away once the 3D is turned on though. Guess I'll just get used to it.

Yeah. What I do is just turn the 3D all the way down without turning it off.

It makes games look arguably better.
Baseless prediction as of 01/04/13 : the next Xbox will be called the Xbox On.

I did notice this with my XL but at the end of the article it says it "Kind of goes away" and for me... it kind of did.

But the article also says it makes 3DS games' Colors just a little bit more vibrant, and I have to concur with that. Even after I made a direct comparision with my friend's Original 3DS.

Unless it's a white screen that now looks off-white.

But yes, in most situations with darker colors the contrast is better with the XL. It looks less washed out.
