Anybody else have the colors look a little washed out? I tried vivid and standard colors, but barely see a difference between the two. Maybe my S5 has just spoiled me.

The OPO does not use a Super AMOLED device so colors seem different, blacks are more grays. You can adjust it accordingly by using the custom presetting

Try http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...08&postcount=6
Adjust the settings around till you get it the way you want it.

The S5 is oversaturated, that's probably why this display seems washed out to you, it's a more natural colour balance.

I had the worst problem coming from a note 2 to a nexus 5. I put the nexus and the opo next to each other tonight and the displays look the same. Is just how a IPS display is.

Try these settings. Looks pretty close to my GS5.

When I have my brightness maxed out and the option to increase brightness in sunlight turned on I see this as well.

It's because most displays these days exceed the sRGB color space, and Android doesn't use color spaces, so colors are generally mapped to the full gamut of the phones' displays instead of trying to match sRGB. The OPO's color is actually VERY accurate compared to most phones out there (a major reason why I got it vs the Sony Z3). Just needs to warm up the white balance a bit.

What ROM are you using ? It was removed with 44S update long time ago
