Please tell us some basic information before asking for help:

  1. Model Name: ROG Phone 5s
  2. Firmware Version:
  3. Rooted or not: not

  5. APP Name & APP Version (If your issue relates to the app): Splendid version

In addition to information above, please also provide as much details as you can, e.g., using scenario, what troubleshooting you've already done, screenshot, etc.


What is the meaning of the different "Splendid" screen color modes? The most likely description I could find was from a review on a website "digit . In" which was for the ROG phone 5. Assuming the "Default" mode in that review is the same as the "optimal" mode on the 5s that gives

Optimal: wide color range but inacurate colors.

Natural: widest possible color range but still with inacurate colors.

Cinema: Most accurate colors using "display-p3" colors and range that still manages to cover almost all of "display-p3" color space. Probably best profile if you want accurate colors.

Standard: Most accurate colors using sRGB color space. Might be useful if some legacy app doesn't properly handle color profiles. But I'm not even sure if it is useful there.

Custom: custom.

As a further question why does Asus give these such unintuitive names? With all the advertising around the accuracy of the display having delta e less than 1. Why isn't it obvious which color profile to choose to achieve the most accurate colors?
