Is there any way to adjust the color balance of the G2X's display. Compared to my Moto Atrix 2 and Nexus One the G2X is shifted toward red where other phones are more true or shifted toward slightly green or blue.

In CM7 there's an option to adjust it. Under CM settings.

What about a stock rom? If rooted is there an app that can adjust it?

My wife is using my old Nexus One. I tried giving her my G2X but she didn't like it because of tendency for whites to have a red tint to them. For example if you go into the Dropbox or Facebook app on the G2X there is a definite red tint, but if you go into the same apps on the Nexus One there is a slight green/blue tint while on the Moto Atrix 2 (changed to get 850Mhz 3G for DTAC Thailand) there is almost no tint (more true white). I guess all the various types of display panels (LCD, SLCD, OLED and iPS) have their different peculiarities. If I could shift the color to a truer white, I think she would then like the G2X. I guess the OLED display on the Nexus One spoiled her, but I think my Moto Atrix 2 has the truest color of the three.

Ever tried voodoo color? Not sure if it works on g2x but worth a shot if its that bothersome. I've personally never noticed it and always liked the g2x display.

I loved the display for the year I used the phone. Then when I went to the Moto the colors were more vibrant and true. I did not notice the red tint until my wife gave me the phone back and said it bothered here and wanted to keep the Nexus One instead. The Nexus One is starting to run out of memory, etc. and I need to get her stepped up to a better Android phone soon. I will check out the app you mentioned. Thanks.
