Yeah I know what you mean. That's one of the reasons I like pdf over image zips for manga.

Well increasing the dpi above the K2 supported 167dpi shouldn't help the images look better (it will add to your file sizes though, and it may add some processing time too). So 622 is still not the right height in pdf mode... I haven't come across any documentation that says the usable space in pdf mode. I guess you could try to measure it yourself by displaying a solid black full screen image, measure the top and bottom margins using a ruler, and then use mathmagic to determine the number of pixels used in the margins: 800 - (167 pixels per inch x size of margin in inches). That should give you a better estimate.

I can try and post screen shots if it would help to illuminate the difference.
I'm unfamiliar with the mobi format, but sure post pics and maybe someone here can help you.
