DSI XL is better

I think it's almost about the same. I just use the 3DS XL for both 3DS and DS games. But if you don't mind spending another $100+ (don't know how much a DS XL is these days) then go for the DSi XL.

Screens are the same size in dimension.

3DSXL is higher resolution, so the image is blurred a bit.

DSiXL is lower resolution and more pixelated.

I actually enjoy DS games on DSiXL better, but I can't ever get the dang thing out of my mother's hands. She's always playing Word Searcher.

DSiXL has the better battery life (by maybe 1.5 hours), but the 3DS XL has a (slightly) larger screen size.

I did a comparison with my friends 3ds xl and dsi xl, The screen looks better on the dsi xl, but the 3ds xl has a brighter screen. But your right The he battery is much better on the dsi xl.

Dude you and I are on the same boat LOL. I have/had a DSi XL but my mom uses it now just to play Bejeweled Twist.

The DSI XL. Though have never gone back, I love the analog stick.
