    I'm not sure if this is a WP8 thing, or an 8x thing because I've only looked for the issue on two different 8x's.

    If you look at the contact picture on a pinned contact (or the Me tile), the colors look accurate. When you tap on the live tile and go to the contact page, there is a strong red tint to the picture. What else is interesting, is that the live tile picture changes to a red tint during the transition/animation to the contact page.

    I'm curious to see if others have seen this on 920's, or even WP7.

    It's only slightly annoying.

    Does it show this when you take a screenshot or would you need to take a picture of it?

    So, looking at the screenshots on my computer of both the start screen and the contact page, the color is correct on both.

    Can you take a picture to see if the tint is there?

    Here is a picture of the live tile and then the contact page. Both taken with the crappy Surface camera. I'll post a video too shortly.

    Here's the video. It's a little easier to see what I'm describing. I have also witnessed this on another HTC 8x other than mine.

    Weird. Don't have this problem on my 920. It is probably a software bug.
