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.
