    Users reporting Gingerbread update ( 2.3.3) causes screen discoloration on Nexus S


    We’ve received a handful of tips from frustrated Nexus S owners claiming that the recently released Android 2.3.3 update has an unwelcome side effect, screen discoloration. Reports indicate that after the Gingerbread update, the Super AMOLED screen on the Nexus S becomes yellowish and washed out. We’re not sure if Google messed with Android’s color settings, but the difference — as you can see from the picture above — is quite noticeable. Any Nexus S owners out there seeing the same thing?

    Its very difficult to get color balance on AMOLED panels... Looks like Google forgot to enable the correct gamma setting in the kernel.

    Ry Guy from Google forum:
    "With your new OTA complete, you may notice a slight difference in the way colors are displayed on your Nexus S. For Nexus S, we have adjusted the color temperature settings to more accurately reflect darker colors at all brightness levels. The Gingerbread UI being darker, we found that the colors were not as accurate when the device was being used at lower brightness levels. For example, some users reported that the initial color temperature was too high leading to some darker greys having a reddish tone; with the new color temperature this is no longer the case."
