I I have come from the Galaxy s2 and galaxy Nexus.
Although reviews said this phone has a great screen And although it is very sharp a lot of the colours look very washed out to me - does anyone agree, is there anyway to improve the colour saturation?
(photos and movies do look ok, it is really Web sites I am referring to)

If you mean like a yellowish tint then yes. Don't think there is anyway of changing this.

Colors in LCD are always going to look "washed" compared with the oversaturation of Amoled. That said as dibdin mentioned this screen seems to have an slight yellowish tint, it's mostly notable in white and other few colors.

I think you are just really used to the over-saturated AMOLED screens.

+1!
exactly what i was going to say too, same situation as you. hated the over saturation of the s2 initially, but then got used to it over time so comparatively it looks washed up.

YEAH i think so, I was using S2 before i had my xps, at first i was really thinking like that, but later on i was thinking XPS has natural colors as compare to the saturated amoled of S2. I had time to compare whites of S2 and XPS, whites are better on Sony XPS.

I agree the whites are better (blue ish on the s2 and grey ish on the gn)
I have no yellow tints so I am happy about that.
Seems I will just have to adapt to the paleness of the colours.
Otherwise this is a fantastic phone! :)
