    Default Does the Nexus 4 really look SOOO yellow tinted?

    I'm watching this review of Galaxy Nexus vs Nexus 4 and boy does that Nexus 4 screen look yellow and lower quality compared to that cooler Galaxy Nexus screen... is this really the case? Or are there Nexus 4's that are not looking as yellow color?

    That must be his unit or the camera hes using to film the review. I use mine for longs periods of time and its never tinted with yellow like it looks in that video.

    He compares it to iPhone 5 too and boy it looks so yellow in comparison... I personally prefer the cooler "blueish" color of the iPhone 5 over the yellow tint anyday.

    It all depends on what the white balance was taken on. Which screen? If it was a screen . my screen is just fine.

    They also aren't calibrated at the factory. So they can vary dramatically from one phone to the next.

    Apple calibrates every iphone at the factory for consistency.

    I have had my N4 for a couple of weeks now and I see no hint whatsoever of yellow tints or a yellowish screen. My screen is brilliant and crystal clear, so I'm always perplexed when I see these videos and pictures on line. And btw, I'm no Android fanboy as this is my first Android device (loving it so far).

    Imho, the galaxy nexus screen sucks. The N4 blows it away. This is just from my observations at my local VZW store and Tmobile store.

    The N4 definitely is not yellow compared to the iPhone. (Looking at them both now.)

    Something's wrong there.

    I bet a lot of it has to do with how the camera perceives the screens. For example, when taking a video of your computer or tv screen, does it not always look way worse than with your brilliantly, biological engineered eyes?

    I don't have this problem either, but I only have a One S and that's probably not the best screen to compare it to.

    The screen looks great. I despise the blue tint many other phones have. I'd take "slightly warm" over " frigid blue" any day.

    Wild inconsistency is possible when the display isn't calibrated at the factory.

    I dont have any tinting on mine. It might have been the screen setting?

    Mine doesn't look like that either. Color on N4 seems to be very slightly on the warm side where my iPhone 4 work phone is very slightly cool. My Galaxy Nexus is way on the cool side. I used to think the screen on the GNex was great until I got the N4. Side by side the GNex looks like ****.

    I think both of my N4's are slightly warm, but not in a bad way like the picture up top.
    Google it.

    My Galaxy Nexus is actually the phone that has a yellow tint in the screen - I have to tune it using a custom kernel and a root app to fix it. My Nexus 4's screen doesn't look yellow at all with the stock kernel.
