All four of my K3s and my DXG have higher contrast than my K5 or either of my K4s. My three Nook Simple Touches are all better than my two K4s or my K5. Only my DX (white) is worse contrast than my K4s and my K5. I am looking forward to a comparision with my paperwhite with its light OFF when I get it. I hope it is better.
My two K4s were purchased about a month apart and came with different firmware versions. To the naked eye, their displays are identical to each other and to my K5. There is no visible variation between them, but they all have worse contrast than my 5 earlier K3/DXG units (and worse than all three of my Nook Simple Touches).
So, my personal experience is contradictory to what "people also say".
