    iPhone 3G Color

    I am curious if there is way to adjust the color or contrast on the iPhone 3G. The color on my iPhone isn't as rich as the color on my daughter's iPhone when displaying the same photo. Her iPhone display is more accurate than mine when compared to the same photo on a calibrated monitor. I suspect my iPhone needs just a tad of contrast boost because the blacks are not black and dimming the brightness does not help.

    Have a look at this article. When the new iPhone came out this was a topic of discussion...

    Re: iPhone 3G Color

    Thank you for the link, Terry. My iPhone isn't having a problem with warmer tones as reported in the link. In fact, the yellows are not as yellow on mine as they are on my daughter's. I may not have noticed the lack of contrast/color vibrance on my iPhone if it weren't for comparing it with my daughter's iPhone using the same image. Actually, this is my second iPhone (returned the first one for a different color) and I believe the first one rendered the image like my daughters iPhone (I also regret the color change).

    By the way, this is the image in question. On my iPhone the black areas (e.g., water) are not quite black.

    Adjust your display's brightness, it sounds as if yours is too bright.

    Re: iPhone 3G Color

    David you are correct to think I just need to adjust the brightness. That was my first thought as well. However, no amount of brightness adjustment could get the image to look as good as it does on my daughter's iPhone.

    Don't get me wrong, the color isn't terrible and it is not a huge roblem if not corrected. I was just hoping there was a way to make adjustments in addition to brightness.

    I wonder if you both have the 3g, personally I prefer the display of my original iPhone to the new one, I see better saturation and colors. You could always pop into an apple store and see what they have to say about it.

    Yes, we both have 3G. They were purchased at the same time.
