With the frontlight on, and I only keep it at half intensity, the screen is markedly superior-- the contrast is just an incredible improvement.
Try one of the new fonts. The new fonts are only usable because of the higher resolution. 'Fine details'. The older fonts don't have much fine detail (intentionally) so they won't look that much better/different.
