    It's not in the settings for those system apps, so there's no easy way. I set this things I can to dark background, and just live with the rest.

    On other phones forums, I have seen discussion of flashing inverted G-apps to get black background in some of the built in apps, but I don't know much about it and not sure if it applies to GS4

    Mine was black out of the box. I know that isn't much help but it clearly is possible on some S4s.

    Sounds like your on a Google Edition ROM.
    You will either have to root it and flash a custom GE ROM with this feature.
    Or flash a Samsung ROM, all of which have dark background contacts app.
