My new LG V10 has very poor colours especially the red is bad. Any one else? What can I do? The LG website doesn't even list this model.

THE phone is one week old and I have written to the sellers to see if they'll exchange it. All the colours are dull. I came for an IPhone 5s.

Good morning, even though I wrote a glowing review of the V10 in January, I've got to admit there are a few things that are making me go back to Samsung. One of these is the lcd screen. Its a very nice screen, but once you've had a phone with an amoled display, you won't be happy with anything else. With red being a deep bright color, its normal to notice this as being "dull" . I did too. Many diehard LG lovers will tell you that the V10 screen is more "true to life" than amoled. And that may be. But I was, also, dissapointed with this. I still like this phone and use it daily for work, but I kept my note 4 and galaxy s6 edge. The s6 edge is with me whdn im not working. So, there you have it.

Here's the phone on the LG website:

It's possible you got a bad display. How new is it? If it's bothering you that bad, go into your carrier and ask for an exchange. Did you look at the display phone? Does it look like yours?

As already mentioned, if you are coming from a Samsung, amoled displays are over saturated to make them more appealing but they aren't actually displaying the colors accurately.

No problems with mine. I for one don't prefer over saturated colors. The V10 color pallet is more accurate than pretty or flashy... IMHO.

Its not a perfect screen though, once you factor in efficiency and power usage. So that true to life accuracy comes at a penalty.
