I have a question about the lower screen, It feels different then the upper screen, when I view my 3DS horizontally at the lower base, I notice that when I press the lower screen with my stylus It looks like the screen goes a little down and when you remove the stylus It goes normal, Its like the lower screen Is made of something plastic- glass-ish thing.

...its a touch screen...lol. It's supposed to be like that so you can't break it easily.

I love Erica (Strike Witches), Eureka (Eureka Seven), and Tenma (School Rumble), stay away from them. xD
Update: Also love Yukari and Mizore from Rosario + Vampire.
Another Update: Also Yuuki...from School Rumble...
Yet Another Update: Also Amber and Xiao Pai from Rune Factory 4.

Yeah, pretty sure its because you're using a pen-like object and not your finger like you would on an iPad or something.

It's a resistive touch screen, the screen bending ever slightly is how it functions. Capacitive touch screens like on Apple products work differently, and are made of glass. No flexing in them.

The benefits of such a touch screen is high precision. The downside is it can only detect one point of contact.

Stay safe, kids: Make sure to save frequently during multiplayer, and always use a stylus!

Off topic but I really would like a Trauma Center for 3DS, that's one of the few games which justify using a resistive touch screen over a capacitative one

I think it's the other way around. There are only a few games that would justifty a capacitive touch screen over a resistive one.
