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.

Do you think there is a limit set on the brightness maybe a dev could unlock that limit to make the phone more brighter

But why you can't see it on a screenshot then?

The screen settings definitely do not change when you attempt to install a different app.

Why do you say this is just an overlay? It is baked into the kernel.

Hahaha... posted in the wrong thread, sorry. I had another tab open for another Display control app that worked without custom kernel/root.

Thanks for these settings! I myself have a spyder 4 but applying your settings has made the screen much better! Thank you.

Great
N4 needs some serious calibration. I am using 238,228,240 which give me identical colors to my iPad 3.


i think thats a good setting, anyone agree?
