    Hi I just got my iphone 4s screen replaced because I cracked it. The phone works flawlessly. There are no artifacts on the screen. The only issue is...don't know how to describe it, but colors are just duller or not as vibrant any more...seems like the calibration is off or something is not right. It was visibly noticeable right after I got the phone back and when I compare it side my side with my wife's 4S it definitely noticeable.

    Any ideas on how to color calibrate the iphone or to fix this? Have other people had similar issues after screen replacement. thanks.

    Thats just how the screen is there is no way to calibrate it. Just the quality of the screen.

    Who replaced it? It's possible, if it wasn't apple, that the person who replaced it did not replace it with a retina display... If its a cheap place, it probably isn't a genuine OEM part... Hope I described that using the right terms :/

    all depends where you got the screen and who made it. you can get a cheap replacement or a near OEM quality one. sounds like it was a cheap screen.

    it doesn't have to be a cheap screen. you can get a perfectly dull colored screen directly from Apple. the screens are made by different manufacturers in different factories and they are not all identical. some are bluish. some are yellowish. some are hyper saturated. some are dull. it's luck of the draw.

    ^ This. The screens are not all identical and they do vary. They're not calibrated to be identical. If they were, the cost would be significantly higher.
