    Not really much to argue about. Lite wins hands down every time.

    Yeah, it's definitely Lite for me. The only problem is the GBA games, but that doesn't really make a difference.

    I actually prefer the phat. I have a phat, but all my friends have lites. I find that the lite isn't veery comfortable in my hands, because it's too small, and last time I played tetris on a friends lite (when he's losing online, I'll just play for a quick 15 second win to confuse the opponent), I couldn't press the buttons properly. I just find it really uncomfortable and the fact that the GBA games poke out is really annoying, as I'll always have one of my Pokemon games in that slot.

    I agree. After-all, the DS Lite is an improved version of the original DS, so it is obviously designed better in terms of the size, brightness and weight.

    i like the phat better, better grip, i got a skin for it (metroid prime hunters, makes it look way sweetness), and gba games dont stick out. o and i like the stylus better on the original ds.

    same. Phat's comfortable and i can actually stretch my thumbs a little bit. and the lite to me. i actually have to put my hands further away so i can use my thumbs and not get cramps.

    Lol, you get cramps from playing a DS Lite?
    The Lite looks better, and feels better (to me).

    i like the phat because i have one and weve been through some great times and plus i dont think that it makes a difference that the lite has a brighter screen because phat lights up too and works just fine and i dont think weight even matters

    I find using the Nintendo DS Lite more comfortable and more enjoyable. It's smaller, better looking and brighter than the original DS and it has improved on the faults of the original in several ways. I have both versions; the silver original which I never liked too much because of the (in my opinion) horrible design; silver body with black buttons and the polar white Lite that looks great, is more compact and looks brighter. It also seems that the screen on the original DS scratched easier; even though the touch screens on both of my DSes are extremely scratched from games like Pokemon Dash and Ranger.
