That depends on how well it's shot and if it's compared again something you know. So if the Libra color was show in good lighting at 4K being compared to the Libra 2 with no front light on, then yes we;d get a good comparison.

That would be my wish too. I don't want the color Libra with the Kaleido tech, which makes the screen darker and would force me to use more frontlight. I already use the frontlight at middle or high levels on my Libra, as I mostly read on it in daylight and want my screen to be off-white, not grey.
I ordered a Libra Colour, because I couldn't resist and had to try it. I will of course compare the B&W reading experience with my Paperwhite and the Libra of my wife. It better be good. I also always have the front light on, even in the day, because I like the background to be more white than grey. But I also read a lot at night, with the dark mode.

Please post pictures of both the color Libra and the b/w Libra side by side (with the frontlight on and off, if possible). While I don't plan to get the new color Libra, I'd be interested how the b/w reading experience compares to the previous gen.

I read exclusively in dark (inverted) mode. I'd be curious to see that comparison with the Libra 2

I guess that the dark mode is not as spectacular as the colour. It probably looks the same as on the Libra 2, but will see.

Just read the reviews, and it's not half the resolution when you're reading in black and white.

Does anyone know what "FastGLR" might be? The Libra Colour and Clara Colour both mention it in their screen specs:

I wonder if you could do black background with white text in dark mode.

Someone on Reddit got their Libra Colour early and is taking questions on it notably the screen and contrast: Libra Color AMA

I mean, the white case does not help, but yeah, without light the comparison is quite brutal... (pictures from Reddit.)

This is definitely very relevant for people who refuse to use the light.

The comparison it's pretty clear and goes as expected.
Eink with light constantly at a very high value at all time almost lose the point of it in my opinion. Of course i know it's not directed in your face and it's still better than a tablet, but i though eink readers objective was to replicate as much as possible reading on paper, and this is a step backwards on that and for most use cases.
