Hi
I have exactly the same problem as described in this Note 10.1(2014) post:

"Hi there,
not sure if it is the same thing. No matter what [Display/screen] mode I choose, yellow comes out quite muddy and dirty, I am not able to get a clear, nice yellow out of the screen, always turns out like brownish. Is this common? I had read about "accurate colors" which isn't the case with my unit. Other colors seem more natural to me...
Thanks in advance
Froschfinger"

On my screen, all other colors than yellow/orange look great....
But the difference in yellow/orange - when compared with a Galaxy s4 or iPad - is clearly visible. Have a look at a Shell, Tide or DHL logo or compare with the yellow in the chrome logo.

Does anyone experience the same issue?

Here is an example of the different yellow colors between Note Pro 12.2, Galaxy S4 and iPad2 in a picture (out of camera).

Similar case to the lenovo Yoga 2 Pro "yellow correction"?
I hope it's not similar to the Lenovo "yellow correction" problem. The display of the yoga 2 Pro has similar technology as the Note Pro and many Lenovo users reported the "yellow" problem (a 116 pages thread in their support forum...):

"“The Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro utilizes a Samsung LCD panel with a Pentile Red-Green-Blue-White (RGBW) pixel matrix, as opposed to a standard Red-Green-Blue (RGB) matrix on more conventional LCD panels.”

=> look for "Yoga 2 Pro 13 Yellow Color Issues" at the lenovo forums,
the pictures in the first post are very similar to mine...

The good news: It seems that a BIOS Update by Lenovo helped to solve the problem there.

I just found this issue.

In my opinion, samsung put the CMYK filter in the display software . this make bright yellow in RGB turn into "process yellow" in CMYK (make the yellow is more brown.) which is more accurate for printing .
but on the LCD screen like computor and other mobilephone, it look dull and too dark.

Might be something wrong with yours. Yellow seems ok on mine. Sm-p900 vs Nexus 10

Evidently. The NotePro has an LCD screen, and the S4/S5/Note 3 are AMOLED.

You can't expect the two to look alike.

Hey guys. Sorry for my english. Have you found anything else? I'm having the same problem here. Some sort of greenish yellow, but no problems with any other color.
Have you returned your tablet for RMA?
Thanks!

Hey guys. I noticed that whenever I pull down my notification / settings bar the yellows displayed on background stuff looks normal. This is kind of an annoying find, as it shows that the note pro is capable of correct colors
