Default Question about the Display

So my buddy just got the Z1s and he compared the display to his Samsung Galaxy S 4... He likes the darker colors so he's wondering if there is a way to make the colors similar? Looks kinda Faded on the Sony. Whats the best setting for the white balance ?

Thank you!

The technologies on Z1s and S4 are different. S4 uses an AMOLED, which will have oversaturated colors and pure blacks. Both screens have their ups and downs.

I was curious about the white balance settings too... the gray bars at the top of the settings page don't seem to do anything. I've played with the auto brightness on/off which helps in some lighting conditions. (I came from an HTC Sensation, so I prefer the more "realistic" colors of the Sony. The Sammies always look a bit too cartoonish for my taste.)

As stated by first reply, our displays cannot physically shut off pixels and thus cannot obtain the deep blacks of amoled displays.
