It does work. I just don't know what each setting combinations look the best.

I don't notice yellowing yet. Guess if it appears, I know how to fix it now. Since it looks like software, why isn't this fixed?

This is a different type of screen. Blacks will not be as deep nor colors will it be as saturated as super amoled. As far as settings I use 255 190 255.

I use Fauxclock. It's got CPU/GPU clock and voltage control, in addition to color (and gamma, when ROMs/kernels begin to support it). You can also select an IO scheduler.

Basically it does all the same stuff as Voltage Control, SetCPU, Incredicontrol, and N4 Display Control, but it's in one app so it's overall cheaper.

I went to a Best Buy today and compared my N4's screen directly to a Optimus G. I didn't actually think my screen looked yellow at all until I compared it to the Optimus G. My N4's screen looked terribly yellow, was less bright, and had worse viewing angles than both of the Optimus G's my local Best Buy had on display.


Based off the first post in this thread for the GNex, I set my Nexus 4 to settings of:

182
190
200

I haven't tinkered too much but this seems to make things a bit better.

Has anyone else experienced the screen turning very yellow, almost brown, when viewing from the corners of the device? I am pretty unhappy with the viewing angles on the phone, especially after comparing it to the Optimus G, which is supposed to have the same display.
