    Not saying it isn't blue, I'm saying it doesn't look like cyan blue that's all. It is more like sky blue, much lighter than cyan blue. Its not a problem per say but it is annoying.

    That's because you switched from a device with an OLED display to one with an IPS LCD display.

    OLED displays tend to be highly saturated which causes a more 'intense' color. If you adjust the display settings to be more saturated and slightly warmer I believe you'll get close to the color you're used to seeing. :)

    Yeah but I have the saturation up to the full and colour temperature at half but going by the touch cover on my surface it is not a true representation of the colour cyan.

    I just checked against a known calibrated image of true cyan via a pantone swatch, when moving both sliders fully to the right I get the closest to true cyan that's possible on the 1520.

    It's still not a match for the vibrance on the OLED displays however. It's just not possible with the IPS LCD on these models.


    It's one of the downsides of being spoiled by OLED tech and it not yet being available at good yields for a 6" screen. :(

    It's not a biggie or anything but I was thinking before I got it, how nice would the 1520 be in cyan with the tiles also in cyan but after seeing the way the colour looks on the screen it just wouldn't look good.

    At least with the black any colour tiles will look good, except for pink of course.

    With 8.1 I will be able to get it spot on.
