    Hi there,

    I have a AOC screen i2769VM, calibrated today with Spyder5 Elite. Yet, I'm not satisfied of the result yet. It's not bad, but colors looks maybe a bit yellowish (reddish), and it seems too dark. Now, my picture looks better on my Android screen.

    Any advice, feedback, thought... something I could improve? (the AOC screen isn't the most expensive-pro-screen type off... but my Android's screen isn't either, right? so....)

    thanks !
    Nicolas :)

    oh, by the way, the screen is plugged-in a laptop (Dell Latitude E6530).

    You could try to find a way to calibrate your android screen, or just recalibrate the other screen again.
    Try using the dp inputs for the monitor if you have support for that.

    thanks for your answer! that's fast!
    actually, I don't want to calibrate my Android screen. It looks better to my taste than my newly calibrated AOC screen... Mmh, that's too bad! :)

    If you prefer a screen that is out of calibration, just set the screen to the settings you prefer, it's your screen after all.

    Actually, I wonder if my Android screen doesn't look closer to the real colors seen when taking the picture?? Anyway...
    thanks once more!

    It looks like the Spyder5 Elite is a colorimeter, and can only calibrate/profile displays, and projectors.
    A spectrophotometer is needed to profile a printer, like the Spyder5 Studio.

    Even a color Munki photo will work.

    Yep.
    The X-Rite ColorMunki Photo is a spectrophotometer and can profile a printer as well as calibrate and profile a display or projector.
