Too much red in display

Hi,

 

I have my Z5 now for 1 day, and I see a big difference in the screen from my Z1 and the Z5.

There is too much red on the Z5. On pictures faces are red instead of normal skin tone.
I have disabled the X-reallity mode on both phones.

 

Someone els has this problem?

You can manually adjust the colours and tone down red colours

The whitebalance settings you can only ADD red/green or blue. It's not possible to lower one of the colors.

Re: Too much red in display

They compensate / compliment. Play with the sliders. My Z3 is also out of balance. My current settings are R26 G30 B129. Sad to hear that Z5 also have the color cast. For a device advertised for its camera capabilities is not good to have un-accurate colors. How's the devise otherwise? The Z5C users report really serious issues with camera and display and overheating.

My Z5 Compact had too much red, so I turned blue and green up to 160 and problem solved. Though 160 seems like a very high value to compensate for it. The screen was badly manufactured, I think.

Re: Too much red in display

I have the same problem, whatever I try, red is way too saturated, images are of bad quality.

 

Did you find any solution?

Re: Too much red in display

In my case changing green and blue to a high level doesn't change anything.  Red is still way too intense, saturated..

Same problem 

Set green to 70 in display settings and you're good.
