Phone Nexus 4 Color Settings [spreadsheet]

Update: FauxDisplay (and the spreadsheet) have been updated with new names for the gray scales and gradients. Also, the gradient columns come before the the gray scale columns now so don't get mixed up when inputting values! And when submitting values please go ahead and start putting the gradients first so it's easier to read


Hi everyone! I've read that many people have said that they are experiencing a yellow / blue tint on their screens when viewing at certain angles and are attempting to tweak their color settings to improve it. Or you could just be trying to make your screen look sexier in general, what do I know?

Now back in the Galaxy Nexus forums we had a publicly accessible spreadsheet just for different color settings and I thought that we could do the same here. As more kernels come out we will most likely be seeing different color variations with each one so here is where everyone can share their own personal color settings for all to try!
Also, if you see the bolded line (besides the ones from the devs), those are the settings that I personally use and recommend

Now the spreadsheet is split up into 3 sheets. Sheet 1 is Gamma, Sheet 2 is Gradient / Gray and Sheet 3 is Basic. A quick explanation:

Gamma - Franco's introduced gamma settings
Gradient / Gray - Faux's introduced settings (gradients and gray scales)
Basic - basic RGB values along w/ amp 0 and amp 1

This will keep the spreadsheet looking more organized instead of having everything crammed into one sheet, enjoy!

I'm looking forward to seeing (and trying!) all the different display configurations from everybody!
So everyone please feel free to share your colors here

I've started off with a pretty simple spreadsheet for now and will add more sections / headers as the features arrive (such as contrast, CAB, etc.). Feel free to let me know if I've missed anything and I'm looking forward to seeing (and trying!) all the different display configurations from everybody!

So everyone please feel free to share / post / edit the spreadsheet with your colors

Public Spreadsheet

Also, I will try to make frequent backups of the spreadsheet because there are those childish people out there who just love to wipe the spreadsheets clean for their own amusement.
Not sure how any app is going to improve viewing angle colors.

I've just read about people trying to fix their tint issues and it's alleviating it for some. But like I said, it's not just about fixing issues really. Everyone has different color preferences in general too.

Of course we have childish people messing up the spreadsheet (again) so I will be making backups often, thanks for everyone who have input values.

Added some values as well.

I think you really have to experiment for your self as every screen will be different. I used an app called Display Tester for patterns. The best i could get the blue was 1.6 for gamma. I set red and green to 1.8 which put rest around the 2.2 goal. I'm still playing with color levels though.

Nice! And you are right, every display is different. It will be interesting to see all the different combinations
I went ahead and added a value set that another user posted in Faux's thread. I have to say, these are really beautiful on my screen

Added my values. Aimed for as closely calibrated to 2.2 across the board as possible. Also, link display tester app in OP please, best way to check gamma values.
No matter what I do max I can get for blue is 1.8. Settled with that and r2.2,g2.2.

Done! I see a lot of people saying 2.2, is that the most preferred one? The spreadsheet is filling up a bit, keep it coming guys!
