cell phone displays over saturated photos

Post by lauracaptain » Mon Apr 06, 2020 12:32 am

Has anyone else noticed this with their photos? Photo colors look great on your desktop or laptop but on your phone screen the colors look over saturated. I have an Android HTC phone, I've done different searches on the internet and can't find an answer.

I just viewed my photos from my phone and wow, they are over saturated. They don't look that way on my laptop, it has been calibrated. Maybe my phone needs calibrating? I don't know. I need to figure out what's going on and correct it. Anyone got any ideas or have the same issue?

Yes i have noticed this with my phone actually. I imagine it's a software issue rather than a hardware one. I have a samsung galaxy note 10+

Thanks for the reply, at least I know it's not just me having this issue. I'm going to look into it further or go ahead and upgrade to a new, better phone. :)

Thanks for the reply. I've been considering a new phone and looking at some of the Galaxy phones.

Galaxy is an excellent phone. I was full on iphone for years but got bored of their lack of tech progress. Switching to galaxy was like going from a candle to a LED light

Wow, thanks for the input Tom. Your comment makes me even more interested in the Galaxy phones. I've never had an iphone, haven't really cared nor wanted to shell out that much dough for one. But now I am wanting a cell phone with a great camera for those on-the-fly snapshots when I don't have my Nikon or Olympus with me. Hmmm... things to consider.

Hi Tom. If you have a minute, can you just quickly look at my photo page and let me know if the images look bright but not over saturated? Thanks.
