Good: good battery life decent performance
Bad: plasticky feel, fingerprint magnet, battery takes a long time to charge.
Comment: I am very impressed with my ds lite. I can get sometimes 11 hours battery life on one run of the batterys charge however waiting nearly 4 hours for it to recharge is annoying. The ds lite is incrediably durable as mines survived an accidental drop out a 20 foot window onto concrete with the hinge open which is incrediable. The gameplay performance is decent for the price but I dont like the plasticky feel.
Good: it is great for gaming and if you keep it in good nick you can go for a lot of money on ebay and its great for portable gaming.
Bad: not many things are bad about it only if you drop it it can break/crack easily
Comment: i love this console because it was the first portable gaming console i ever had but what annoying is that they don't make many games for it now.sorry got my first review wrong.

Comment: well its not that portable because it doesnt fit in your pocket and you need to carry a case around with all your games on it but its good to have fun with
Good: it shiny that's all
Bad: every thing
Comment: i brought a ds lite and it broke after 9 mouths sent it to nintendo they said it was not in warranty so now i have a shiny white brick
Good: Region-free, means the navy blue (enamel blue) is the one for me, small, sleek, stylish
Bad: lack of gb capability
Comment: this console is worth every penny when it comes to gaming, it has all of the features you would require with the added bonus of the touch-screen, nintendo have done it again with a console that will revolutionise gaming
Good: 10 hour battery life, portability
Bad: Lack of multimedia options
Comment: Nintendo DS cannot compare on the multimedia side to PSP. However, the gaming seems more orginal and has more longevity on DS. It's much better value than a PSP.
