Android Overload: Paranoid Android fixes Nexus 4’s washed out colors, HTC 603e could be the upcoming G2, and more

The Android Overload is where we feature the biggest news stories from throughout the day (see above video), as well as stash all of the stories/articles/news bits that didn’t make it onto our front page. But just because they weren’t featured doesn’t mean they aren’t worth taking a look at. In fact, there’s almost always a little something here for everyone. So, take a look around and let us know if you find anything of interest.

    It’s nice that the Paranoid Android is mentioned for fixing the colors on the Nexus 4 but the Faux123 kernel gives you controls for color and gamma that fixes the washed out colors on the Nexus 4 and it had this feature way before Paranoid Android implemented it into their kernel.

    I give credit to the Paranoid Android team for calibrating the colors and gamma in the kernel so users don’t have to do calibrate it them selves but I think Faux123 also deserves credit for being the first to let Nexus 4 owners mess with the colors/gamma via sliders which let us fix the washed out screen on the Nexus 4 first.
