Hey guys,

Am new to this forum. I was using the recently launched Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 and was pretty happy with the phone - the UI, battery life (2600 mAh), size etc. However I came across this guy who was selling a 2 month old Nexus 4 for a reasonable price and so picked it up - thought of giving my wife the Samsung.

Now, a couple of things I noticed abt Nexus 4 is that the screen and colors look pretty washed out compared to the Samsung, the stock Kitkat 4.4 UI and controls look very very bland compared to Samsung's TouchWiz. Am not confused whether to keep the Nexus or to sell it off.

I dont want to make a mistake in haste. What do you suggest?

The Samsung phones use OLED screens while the Nexus 4 has an IPS screen. The washed out colours is a common complaint and many Nexus 4 owners don't know why the LG-branded version has such good colours.

To help alleviate the problem, it would be best to install a custom kernel or ROM that gives you colour control.

I installed the Experience ROM with the iPhone5 colour profile and it looks much better.
