Default Got a Z1 yesterday but not happy with the screen

As title.....i've been used the an HTC One, i know the from what i've read, the screen on the "one"'s arguably better (and so far from what i've saw, i'd aggree). I find it's very grainy even the vids and yes it's supposed to be hd

I've been into the setting but can't find anything to "adjust" to make the csreen clearer, i know there's some kind of "film" on the screen to protect it but even at that, it's pretty bad....is it me, what am i doing wrong. I was going to sell the "One" but i'll wait

Your Firmware probably is .290 and there is not a option of White Balance Settings. You have to update to .136 to where that option is implemented to improve the screen quality. Look here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2603730

i know it might be a silly question but if you still have the thick protection film that came with the phone you should take it down, the ASF should be almost invisible if you're wondering wether thats the ASF or not.

not if you already took it off perhaps you don't like the x-reality effect in videos, it can do a bit of oversharpening sometimes which might make things looks a bit grainy, you can turn it off under display settings. imho it's looks outstandings... i sometimes prefer to watch movies on my z1 rather than on my 15 inch FHD laptop :P

Take a screenshot from the HD video you are watching so I can compare to mine

If you remove the ASF you warranty will be void.

I can't, well shouldn't, as it'll affect the warranty

I'll try that x reality and see how it goes

Lol I didn't say you should remove the asf! My phone came with some blurry screen protector ontop besides the asf,I was talking about that.

You take a screenshot by pressing Power button + volume down at the same time
