Learn How to Calibrate the Screen of Your Nexus 5

We all have preferences when it comes to the hardware aspects of screens on our smartphones and tablets, with some folks preferring screens that are TFT, AMOLED, or IPS. However, it’s hard to argue against the fact that the Nexus 5 has a pretty fantastic 5-inch IPS display. But as part of the Nexus family, we’ve come to expect much more flexibility and customization from the device, and in this case, with regards to the software behind the screen. To help Nexus 5 owners navigate this often confusing and, in some cases, rather technical area, XDA Senior Member yorici wrote a tutorial on how to calibrate the screen and more of your Nexus 5.

The tutorial is broken down into multiple parts, according to the sorts of customization you’re after. If you are looking for a quick and simple way of changing the software settings of your screen, you may want to check out the ‘profiles’ part of the tutorial. This part teaches you how to set and apply custom profiles for your screen. For those who’s looking to get a bit more technical, yorici provides a simple, yet thorough set of steps to properly calibrate your Nexus 5’s screen. If you come across any terms you haven’t heard before or are not familiar with, such as color temperature, gamma, and RGB, the tutorial gives a brief rundown of all the jargon, with helpful links you can check out if you want to find out more.

If you would like to find out more, be sure to visit the original thread for more information and discussion.

Google Photos ‘Unlimited’ Storage Reportedly Being Capped

When Google Photos was announced, many of us thought very highly of the idea. It seemed like Google had taken what they learned from G+ Photos and added some extra touches to polish the experience, making it something that more people were likely to actually utilize. Now however, the much-lauded 'Unlimited Storage' element may not be quite what it seemed. Here's what we can gather so far...   Reports have come in from multiple G+ and Reddit users who have attempted to back up a...
