    No it isn't. There are enough comparisons by reviewers that the screen looks like that thanks to darker blacks yellow/golds and more vivid colours in general. Also 1 thing worth mentioning the lcd screens produces motion blur with fast moving images wich i absolutely hate. Also an lcd screen outputs lines when an oled screen doesn't. Also that brighter screen you're talking about is called light polution ! It's something LCD screens suffer a lot from when OLED doesn't !. The only reason someone would want a slim is it being a bit lighter and has 1 hour of extra battery life but i prefer the better screen.

    Why would I lie? I'm telling you my Slim is brighter. Judge for yourself. (Top: Slim, Bottom OLED, both at max brightness)

    Frankly, I prefer the OLED display, and that it enough of a reason for me to pick the OLED model.

    The Slim is better. Micro USB port, better and no spongy buttons, feels better in hands, integrated memory and longer battery life.

    The OLED is good for anime games as those games don't need color accuracy and look gorgeous. For games with real life looks, I prefer the color accuracy of the Slim.

    I'm thinking about getting the Vita Slim with 8gb memory card. Is it possible to change the memory card without doing the transfer and all those things? I'm planning to get a 16gb memory card after, can I rotate between those 2 memory cards and play each memory card's games on it ( like PSP ) ?

    Yes you can. You can even switch the card between different vitas or PSTV, when you feel like looking at a bigger screen.
    Honestly if you only want to play vita exclusives, get a PSTV and DS4 Controller. It hurts my eyes to read texts on the vita screen.
    PSTV: ~ 40 eur, used 25-30
    DS4: ~ 60 eur, used 40

    The only downside of PSTV is that it's hard to play games with touchpad functions (most of them are pervy games with boring plots and mechanic anyways).

    Just use Vitashell (the file explorer homebrew), go to folder ux0: and delete the file name id.dat. That's it.
    This file is created everytime you boot the card on a new console and tell the card which console it belongs to. If you delete it, other consoles can use it without having to format.

    Edit: this is to use one card on different consoles. On the other side, one vita can use as many different cards as you want.

    So basically whenever I want to swap between memory cards, I just have to delete the id.dat. Does this only apply to those who swap between 2 accounts? I'm going to use henkaku to get games on a memory card and the other one, so I can just switch without this process ? Should I install henkaku on both cards ?

    Like i already said. LCD suffers from light polution and that's why it's brighter and it's not a good thing.

    At the end of the day, does it matter? The display that hurts the eyes most is considered the bad one of the two, and it's the Slim for me.
