There may be unwarranted assumptions but it was never meant to be a
scientific experiment- hence I "felt".
The reason I suspect the paper is more representative of the scannner is:
1) All screens are made this way and I would have thought it would be
cheaper to manufacturer it flat. Manufacturers obviously texture the surface
to improve the image. Whereas the scanner is just reporting what it sees.
2) The scanner looks at a flat surface (if you scan the right surface) so I
just felt that viewing the output on a flat surface would be more
