When I did that with the K3, the reflection was smaller and definitely a fuzzy rectangle shape, but no obvious reflections other than that.

I suppose that reading outside with sky reflections could be more of an issue. I hold my devices to minimize reflections, and my K3 matte finish is much less annoying than the shiny finish that my nexus 7 has.

So, it appears that the K4 has more diffuse matte finish than the K3, but I never noticed until now.
It does depending on the lighting. My bedroom light is a position in front of me on the ceiling. So it gives the K3 a glassy look. The K4 doesn't have this issue.

You want to talk about shiny! The Kindle Fire is a mirror, I use it to check my teeth.
