Nexus 6P How to fix the yellow tint screen issue

Nexus 6PJust a few days after purchasing my Nexus 6P I couldn’t help it but notice the screen on my precious 6P had a slightly yellowish tint on the screen, first I tried to ignore it, I thought perhaps it was just my imagination or the type of graphics or pages I was looking at, but after a few more days I was convinced there was an issue with my Nexus 6P,  pages with totally white backgrounds looked slightly yellowish.

Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love this phone and I believe it’s simply the best phone I have ever had, I would buy it again in an instant, but this tint issue needed fixing,

The Fix

After researching a lot I could not come up with a solution, many people commented on the internet about how increasing the brightness of the device seemed to make the problem go away, but here I was increasing brightness to %100 with no improvement outcome, it became clear to me that brightness had nothing to do with the yellow tint on the screen.

That’s when it occurred to me that perhaps I should look into the store and find an app that would let me configure device settings other than just brightness,  after some searching on the store I found an application called “Screen Adjuster Free”.

The best VOIP around

Ooma Telo

This is my review of the Ooma VOIP system, sold in the US and which has been regarded as number one by many people across the nation according to Ooma itself and they have sources to prove it, if you don’t believe me head to Ooma.com right now and check it out by yourself.

What’s great about it: Quality, Design, Features, Sound, among many other things I will explain as you read on.

What’s not so great: No caller ID with name on the free version of the service. (for some other not so great and minor annoyances with Ooma check the items mark in red in the rest of this article)

I have been using Ooma for almost two years now and I wonder why I didn’t get this sooner, the Ooma Telo is a top of the line product, it allows you to have free phone service and make free calls in the US even if you take the device overseas, you just pay a small tax monthly fee (Required by the government not Ooma) in my case I pay just $ 3.71 a month, that’s less than four bucks a month in taxes for the service! this fee varies depending on the area you live.

The free version of the service (where you pay only the monthly taxes required by the government) includes the following standard features:

The Logitech z623 Excellent Audio System

 

Logitech 980-000402 Z623 Speaker SystemThe z623 sound is amazing! I listen to mostly Trance and Electronica in general, but I can tell you everything sounds fantastic on it.  I also own the z2300 which as of right now I have hooked up to my 3D TV, but previously had attached to my computer, and I can tell you that my new baby falls only slightly behind it in terms of bass, but just a little.

The satellite speakers I would say sound actually better than those in the z2300, I  certainly do not regret buying it at all. Some buyers of this system has complained saying the connecting cables are too short, I must agree to some extent, however for most computer users the supplied cables are just enough, in any case if longer cables were needed it is easy to go buy one audio extension cable, they are less than $5 in any electronics store, you just need to buy the cable and an extender plug and that’s it, cable length was an issue for me with my z2300 because of the way I have it set up with my TV and solved it that way.

The z623 Speaker System has the power of 200-Watts RMS, it is THX Certified and connects its left satellite speaker to the main Subwoofer using a standard RCA cable which allows for the solution explained above in the event you need to separate the speakers more,  the AUX In integrated jack on its left speaker allows you to connect any external device such as your IPod, WI-FI radio or regular mp3 player to the system.

The system is so loud that most users will probably put the volume half way, I have tested different types of music and even at very high levels (where the walls start to rattle) I can hear no distortion of the sound at all.

If you are looking for an inexpensive audio system for your PC, iMac or even your TV this device will not let you down, clear highs, crisp mids and an extremely powerful bass make the perfect combination, you can’t go wrong with this piece, other system with this power cost twice as much or even more.

So many things are great about the z623 , I could mention Bass, Sound, Quality and Appearance. Aside from not having optical audio, I see no wrong, but this was expected. Buy it today!
