Instead it has turned out to be a premium tech with marginal improvement on brightness vs ever improving LCD and not particularly suitable for large displays.

MicroLED faces the same scaling issues which is why I expect it's niche will be small displays where pixel density is critical: watches, phones, and small tablets. If power consumption proves to be as low as projected it will hit eink levels but with color and animation.

EDIT: On a reread maybe you mean the Aura was crisper? If so I could only imagine it would be a better font or a better contrast display compared to the others. But, in the general case, my original comments stands in that I would expect for eink higher ppi would likely enable darker fonts.
My lower ppi Aura from Walmart has a better display than my higher ppi ereaders. I think it may be the lighting of the device perhaps.

It could be either be the quality of the lighting or the contrast in the screen itself. I would take a very high contrast 212 ppi screen over a 300 ppi screen with the typical contrast you see now. Easier to read and better battery life.
