    Just bought a LG G Pad 8.3 a few days ago after reading the many positive reviews online.
    Was especially looking forward to the supposedly high quality screen with excellent color accuracy, as it is also marketed by LG.
    So it is with disappointment to discover that my unit does not exhibit these qualities.
    The screen on mine has a low color accuracy, especially with reds.
    Red colors deviate quite a lot and look almost orange. This results in a poor viewing experience and was not what i expected. Most review videos and photos i have watched does not show this color imprecision.
    I suppose i am not the only one with a screen looking like this.
    It seems like the screen has not been calibrated properly from the factory.
    I feel that i have gotten an inferior product and questions if this is general quality problem with the tablet?

    I suspect that LG is using different panels for this tablet. This could explain the big variances in screen quality and color precision, between review samples and later batches.
    It's regrettable, though, as i otherwise like the tablet.
    Anyone know whether this is caused by a limitation of the LCD panel or if it is a calibration problem?

    The app shown in the photos is Display Tester.
    I have also used the app Screen Test with the same result.
