There are little transparent dots on my top and bottom screen? Is this normal? I got this 3DS 3 days ago

Then why do they stand out more than regular pixels, are they bigger?

Only thing that comes to mind is air bubbles... are you using a screen protector?

I would give it a creative name, but I'm not good with "humor", so I'll just give you that :3

You could take a picture and post it here, if you want better advice.

Well I have these little bright tiny pixel on the bottom screen of my 3DS XL that's brighter than the rest. Its hardly noticable but now I have noticed it my eye's keep getting drawn to it.

I don't know how to fix it. I tried turning brightness up & down but u can notice it. A friend told me to massage the screen where it is with a little cloth and water. I don't want to risk upsetting it even more so I haven't tried his advice. I just have to learn to live with it I suppose.

At least it's not as bad as my PS Vita, I have a massive problem with blackspots covering half the screen on that bloody thing. It looks horrible when the screen goes dark, here's a pic:

looks like a cool horror game ;)

dunno about your 3DS though. i have some pixelproblems, too, but it is different. hard to describe. i only notice it when the screen goes all white. like on the damn loading screens of mario kart 7, which are brutal bright btw

It could be a point where you applied severe pressure to the touch screen leaving a dot.
