Default 3ds xl has lines compared to 3ds

When zooming between my XL and 3DS, I noticed that the images are slightly different as there are lines in the XL compared to the 3DS which is not much noticeable. like in the home menu, if you look hard enough at the sides and the corners, the images on the XL screens have some lines. Is this normal?

I guess its the stretch that pixelates the images but I still want to know if this is normal.

If you're talking about the black bars around each pixel, then yes, it's normal.

Should look like this in 2d mode

Ghee thanks. I knew this was normal since if you only zoom at it closer, you'll notice those lines. But what do you mean by black lines? when I zoomed in the image, I see only transparent lines. Also if you zoom in the touch screen as well, you'll notice a grid pattern in the XL so is that normal as well?

I guess I got too used to the original 3DS that these slight differences are making me a bit bothered.
