It's the screen manufacturer who states that there is a 25% contrast improvement, and they should know. Have you personally compared a Kindle Paperwhite side by side with a Kindle Touch, that you're so confident in stating that "there's no actual contrast difference"? Are you claiming that eInk are lying about it?
