Guys small help, Is this normal?

2020-10-25, 16:24 PM

The screen(the one on the right, motog9) looks a bit yellowish. Can you tell me if this is normal? @MotorolaTom

Thanks in advance.

Solved! See the solution

Difficult to assess from the image which is taken by a Xiaomi phone camera presumably as a JPG and no knowledge of settings especially WB, then further altered by WhatsApp.
However, just on the basis of the appearance in your image, I would say both screens are "wrong" as neither is a pure white.
Screen to left is too blue, on the right is red yellow tinted.
The Xiaomi overlay at the foot of the image is a good white and using that to partly fill both screens, you will see how both screens compare with a good white.
Try changing your colour mode in Display settings. If you can't get your G9 screen to match your preference, that will likely be down to different screen types.

Can you tell me in what settings I should take the picture? So, that one can judge(i understand it cannot be perfect, but to take a better one than the present one). I will take the pic again and upload it(ok, no WhatsApp this time). Thanks.

No, you're missing the point. There is no such thing on a phone screen as a perfect or even optimal colour/tint setting - it's the user's preference. Just get your screen setting as close to your preference as you can or as your phone is capable of. Or use Dark mode 😉

Dark mode on LCD? Sorry, no, not going to do it(or that is off-topic to what I am trying to convey). The point is it not just here, even in videos, I never see my display producing white. If I play big bunny buck movie, the bunny and the clouds are in yellow, If I play "costa Rica" clouds and waterfall are in yellow, Every color in all videos is added with a yellow tint(it is like everywhere).

This seemed a bit weird. so, to see if other g9 users are seeing the same stuff or just phone has some issue I posted it here. I am not looking for "perfect" but rather looking for "normal"(asking for that since the start and if it is normal for the phone I am fine with it) for the moto g9 phone(i have seen people using this phone on youtube, those phones seem to produced white or just here there was a post on "glitched upi interface" which seems to produce white). Rather than seeing the phone screen through a video/picture captured through another camera, I want to ask the people using it.

I know you are trying to help. but if you don't have a g9 you won't be able to help me much(a few days ago I have seen you type "not sure about moto g9 but" so, I am assuming you don't use one). Or if you know how to reduce yellow tint through display setting and guide me I would be really grateful(all I know and tried is "colors" as I tried natural, boosted, and saturated. none of them worked to remove/reduce the yellow tint). If you know beyond that and guide me I would be really grateful. Again thanks for trying to help.

It certainly would be good if other G9 users chipped in with their screen display experience.

I can't understand much in the picture but if it seems too yellow just check if the night light is turned on or off as turning it on does make it look yellow to reduce strain on eyes at night. Other than that I think it looks normal but I am no tech expert and for me I don't think natural, saturated or boosted makes much of a difference.

(Typed this on Moto g9 with yellowish display because night light is turned on)

There are always variations between displays, especially between phone models. Some are warmer and some are cooler even on the same model. That being said, yes if the night mode is enabled the screen will appear warmer (yellowish), however, if night mode is disabled you might have a warmer toned panel. If it' bothers you, you can always look into getting it exchanged, but there is no guarantee that the replacement will have a cooler screen.

@ ShubhamSKG Thanks for the reply. Just to confirm, the night light is not on( you can see it in the picture). So, I take it is even you have a similar screen when the night light is off?
