Display Calibration profile
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
