It's bigger than the DSI and has the same features. I opted not to get it beacuse of the fact that it has NO new features, and just a bigger screen. I just got a DSI and it will arrive tomorrow hopefully. The battery life is the same, the WiFi capability and configuration is the same, the camera and extra features are the same, and the only thing that's bigger ids the screen. Not worth $50 extra. . For those of you that don't know ohw big the 93 percent increase is, the current DSI has a 3.25 inch screen, the new one is 4.20. It's ALOT bigger and alot less portable. If your looking for something to just sit around home with it's good. I know that an extra 2 inches is not that much, but you probably won't be able to fit it into your pocket.
