Default Isn't the screen way too saturated?

As the subject. Is that my impression or something well known? Is there an app/setting to make it more natural?

Thanks!!!

PS. I'm on stock kit Kat.

Looks fine if you ask me.

I'd rather have it more saturated than have it looked washed out.

Its different compared to GS4 or iPhone but not bad. Considering I regularly get 3 hours screen time on a 24+ hour cycle I have no complaints.

Compared to my S2, the screen colours and black are amazing. Hard to even look at my s2 now.

But.... Some can find fault in anything somehow. Lol

The screens and saturation levels do vary a little phone to phone. I have played with 3 Moto X's quite a bit now and each have been different. My first one isn't over saturated at all, the screen on it has a little more yellow to it. The other two have more of a blue tint and show more saturation. The whites do look better on the second two but the first is easier to look at in the dark.

DONATE TO ME
I don't think there is any way to adjust it or even change the DNIe mode like Samsung allows. People wrote custom kernels for the Nexus 4 to allow color adjustment but there aren't nearly as many devs working on the Moto X, so you're probably stuck with what you get. I don't imagine that they do any factory calibration to speak of, so of course it will vary greatly between panels.

Unfortunately, oversaturated is the new properly calibrated. The problem is that it has a better off-the-shelf look when people who are clueless are comparing models in the store--hold a Moto X or GS4 up next to an iPhone or Nexus 5 and the colors "pop" more, which seems to be more appealing to the average consumer than the more muted appearance of a display with proper sRGB calibration.

Cool. Thanks guys. In on a xperia z1 and the display is amazing. So using the motox is very different. But yep I should be used to. Another thing I noticed is that is way less bright under the sun. Again I think is just a calibration thing since we if you switch to manual you can increase it much more than the way our light sensor detect it.

You can try the app Lux to control auto brightness and Screen Adjuster to try to correct the colors.
