I don't know if anyone noticed, but my 3DS seems a lot dimmer on the highest setting compared to the 3DS. Even with the 3D off, it seems noticeably dimmer which makes my eyes water a little.

I tested both of my smartphones, my laptop, and an iPod and it's definitely not my eyes.

Put them both side to side, not plugged in. Highest brightness and no power save. DSi seems whiter, but same brightness. 3DS background is a light shade of gray so it's kinda hard to test white to whiteness of the systems.

Picture test: took similar photos. dSi is Indeed brighter. Camera even took a nicer photo.

Never owned a DSi, but it is WAY dimmer than my glorious DS Lite and its ultra bright screens. But it's for obvious reasons, 3D and that brightness would kill the battery even faster.
Play games, not systems. There are people who like games that you don't, grow up.

That's not a nice way to put it. You should call it mentally challenged.

I think the 3DS and the DS Lite both look brighter than the DSi. Maye it depends on the system (possibly for all three of those).
Those that can, do. Those that can't, teach. Those that can't do or teach become politicians.

Like movies in the theater in 3D, the 3DS is also quite dark in 3D.

I am glad I kept my Lite, for various reasons.

My Ds Lite seems brighter to me. The screen is whiter and more brilliant.
My 3ds had a 'cinema' effect to it. It wasnt bad per se, but it didnt strike me as bright.
