Default Display Calibration profile

Hi,

Anexed, you will find the calibration profile for our phone. Well, for my phone at least, as you can have a different SP serie with a different display caracteristics. To install the profile on PC, double clic XperiaSP-Sat5.7+Tint50.icc, then it will appear named "latestDisplayProfile" in photoshop.
How I did that:
- First, I set the white balance (in settings) with : Tint=50 and Saturation 5.5. With that, my white point is near 6500K. Also, Bravia engine must be disable.
- Then I used my i1DisplayPro colorimeter with the free X-Rite ColorTrue app. This app is not available on Google Play as it is supposed to work with a few devices. But I was able to download it in a different way and it works on XperiaSP !

What can we do with this display profile:
- If your desktop monitor is calibrated, in photoshop you can simulate how an image will look like on the phone. Usefull for themers.
- In photoshop, you can convert profiled images (srgb or adobeRGB) to this profile. Doing that, you can visualize a photo on the phone as close as possible to the original. It can be usefull for a nice wallpaper.

An other possibility, is using x-rite app to visualize your pictures corrected on the phone. For that:
- installl QuickPic from googleplay, xrite does not works with SemcAlbum.
- download my xrite backup (titanium backup) : https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/...XriteCalib.zip
- extract zip and put the 3 files in your titanium backup folder
- restore ColorTRUE using TB
- Launch it: it will say it's not able to found a device (colorimeter) but don't worry. Just click the gallery icon and it will launch QuickPic forcing pictures calibration. You will be able to visualize better your photos.
- Don't forget to disable bravia and set white balance to the same values of mines.

That's it !

[EDIT] Added a color profile for native white point (when you use cm7 or any rom without the white point setting from sony). Using X-rite app you will have to replace overwrite the icc profile in /data/data/org.x-rite*/*icc*/latestDisplayProfile.icc

Thank you. I did the same with my Spyder. So if there are Spyder users out there you can do exactly the same with the SpyderGallery App. Also for free in the Play Store. Works with all Android devices.
