    Does this help? This is on a 920 (IPS LCD screen), while the 925 is OLED, so your color may vary. The msg text green is lime, the first one in the top left corner.

    I think I am pretty sure the OP is referring to the complaints about the tint in photos made from the device camera...

    I don't suffer from that problem...

    Yes. Isn't that what everybody complaining about? I'm not sure what Nerdy Woman is talking about unless I misunderstood what the yellowish tint is.

    Yeah. I read the complaints but I've yet to come across the pics. I mean sure the picture output isn't the EXACT same colour as reality - but it's still a pretty excellent camera and still one of the best in the market. I don't know what or where this tint thing is coming. Nokia Camera doesn't have it and that's the only one I use.

    It has it, the fact that you didn't notice is probably that you have been either in good condition to shot a photo or didn't take a lot low light specially with flash. Tough I am using the L920, and it isn't excellent by any mean its just good.

    Nokia Cam

    I blame the LED flash in low light.
    It's not very powerful.
    Processing doesn't seem to know what to do with hues especially with a large amount of white in the shot.

    For me me no biggee with all the photo apps available for adjustment.

    No, the 925 recognizes we're all in the Matrix and adds the tint accordingly!

    I think, I didn't have green tint before 8.1 now all my images are greenish! WTF!

    You had 100%, because the 8.1 didn't change anything in camera algos. You just didn't notice till now.

    Here's an example; there obviously was a bit of green naturally in the pic because of the leaves, but notice how greenish the background is as well (which it isn't naturally). Took this pic on July 17th, by the way:

    That's not greenish tint. That's clearly wrong Auto White Balance. The greenish/yellowish tint is mostly visible indoors low light with artificial light combined with underexposure. In these situations, the camera somehow is processing some "effects" into the image which make them appear washed out with green/yellow tint. The reason is the poor HIghIso Performance above ISO800. To avoid this, use low ISOs and slower shutter speeds (yea, the picture wont be as sharp) or simply underexpose a bit. As long as you stay <=800 the tint gets almost invisible. (see my thread for comparisons)

    The auto white balance in the 925 is simply ****. Really. Especially when you go close to the subject, like you did, it will adjust completely wrong. Indoors, the Auto white balance also produces some weird stuff sometimes. Outdoors, in shadow areas, auto will also be wrong occasionally, then you need adjust manually.

    However, after the Cyan Update, Auto White Balance got somehow better in my opinion, its a bit warmer under artificial light.
