4" countertop backsplash or just tile meeting countertop?

I presently have a Silestone countertop, that extends 4" up. Is there really an advantage to this over just having a backsplash tile meeting the horizontal counter?

I've noticed I like the look on TV shows where they do not have the 4" extension up, but wonder if it's hard to keep that area clean and free of mildew behind the sink or if the final caulking looks lousy after a while.

FYI: My Silestone has held up great and looks brand new after 14 years

! I just want to update the look of my kitchen and make it brighter with a white marble quartz counter.
