Galaxy S2 saturation problem SOLVED! (I guess...)
Hi there, dear Galaxians ;P
Long story short... I got my 3rd in a row Galaxy S2, but this one is a brand new, never opened SOB (I guess this is allowed here, if not sorry). Last two S2's were used. Nevermind.
Those first two has awesome saturation. This one was UGLY! Whites were pinky'ish, Green was eye-popping, and Movie setting didn't help a lot. For those who has normal saturation on Movie setting it was like I had Dynamic turned on. Well, I tried all possible software to make it look good. Then I found a post about it where one of our fellow friends wrote, he upgraded firmware and saturation issue were gone. Well, I wasn't happy hearing that as I consider myself stubborn and conservative 2.3.6 GB user. I guess when I buy Galaxy S 2000 in the future I will downgrade to 2.3.6 anyway, unless they invent week-lasting batteries with 5" or higher screens. Whatever...
Since I found aforementioned thread I was considering firmware upgrade but with another reason. What came to my mind was: "Geez, I got my previous S2's came with JellyBeans on borad and each time I downgraded to GB." Getting things together I found a connection here: "Is this possible that JellyBean can calibrate colors and saturation properly?" Well, my last, brand new S2 came with ICS so it wasn't good calibrated either. I decided to try it and upgrade to JB but then try to downgrade again to GB. As far as I try to have control over my phone I use RootAppDelete and Disable Services apps. I turned off some stuff and I was unable to run Automatic Updates (instead of Kies crap). Well, I messed it up a bit so I had to restore factory settings (all stuff backed up with Go Backup of course). After all I thought: "Why not to give a try again before upgrade?" So I did it. First, I wasn't able to saw a difference as I found out bad saturation after installing Go Launcher and all stuff to get my own icons on desktop and specific wallpaper. After I restored everything I was a little confused, but I checked few icons containing a lot of white like Gmail. It hasn't blinding red color on it and white was white not pinky! Hell Yeah! Then I shuffled through some pictures which were definitely oversaturated and they were fine.
Final conclusion: try NOT to use any RAM and battery eating apps as they never do what you expect, trust me, I tried them all. I don't know if this is universal solution, but in my case after flashing new ROM I had to restore factory settings (stock thing, not CWM or else) to get solved saturation issue.
I hope some of you will try it and mayby you can sort it out, too. Happy Trying.
Let us know if that worked for you too.
