Hi all:

I just got my Xperia XZ1, and I have noticed that the screen does looks yellow compared to Xperia XZ and other smartphones like LG G6 when the screen show white color.

I know that we can change the Blue color in the white color balance option to make the screen looks more blue like other smartphones.

but my question is """" Is All The XZ1 Units Screens Show The White Color More in The Yellow Side ? """""

to explain more ............ the white color in the XZ1 looks like yellow !!!!

the Xperia XZ1 screen is a very crisp and clear one, I do feel that colors are alive but I'm wondering if all XZ1 units have the same screen or my XZ1 screen have a problem and if there is a problem is it a software or hardware problem ???????

Change in Settings-> Display -> Color gamut -> sRGB professional
This solved for me the same yellowish white color on my XZ1 and colors looks more natural now.

Hey Even I have the same issue, My old Z2 is much natural n blue. I even kept my blue colour balance at the maximum 255 but still looks yellow compared to the z2's 85 blue. Did it really work after you've done a factory reset?

I noticed that when switching between colour gamut modes, the display randomly gets a very red tint. Switching gamut again will restore normal white balance. Also, I find that the white of my xz1's display is very neutral. If I look at my xz1 after having looked at a more blueish display of my Z3 Compact for a while, the xz1 will look yellowish because my eyes have adapted to the cold blue tint of the z3 compact display. But after letting my eyes adapt to my xz1 again, its display beats my z3 compact out of the water in terms of white balance.

Also, blueish screens are worse for your sleep ;)

Adjust your white balance setting.
R - 0
G - 50
B - 150

Thanks, but the colors are to "cold".
Best I could get, trying to match to a good calibrated XZ screen. (XZ screen targeted to 6500k).
For (now) my settings are, with color gamut set to standard:
R 142
G 0
B 179

I bought a used unit of XZ1C and I noticed the yellowish it too.
And here I thought my display is making problem and honestly I thought the Night Mode were enabled but its not.

I guess its normal? My POCO F1 looks more crispy.

    Thanks for sharing this settings.
    My screen looks looks much better and more natural.

    BTW. Any idea to know the oem screen brand name and version?
    It could be good to compare and find if there is different screen model and which one looks yellowish ?
