Photography Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for professional, enthusiast and amateur photographers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Is there a way to calibrate the screen of a Samsung Galaxy 10.1 (an Android tablet)?

Apparently most tablets have a bad color reproduction, but I could not find any way to fix it.

I own a Datacolor spyder3 Pro calibration device. As it seems they have an app for the IPhone, but nothing for Android devices.

My main interest is to accurately present my photos in a gallery (when showing photographs to clients), so if there is no way to calibrate the tablet system-wide it would be enough to have an app that just shows JPG images and is able to color-correct them via software.

Would this question be better suited to the Android SE? –  JamWheel Dec 30 '11 at 10:26

really better? it's still related to photography after all, and in the Android SE most people associate "calibrate" with compass calibration... –  Udo G Dec 30 '11 at 14:59
    
Screen calibration isn't a photography exclusive subject and whilst in your particular case it is photography related I feel that if the question was posed explicitly enough (with a definition of calibration), you would have a better chance of getting an answer on the Android SE. –  JamWheel Dec 30 '11 at 21:09
    
ok, so is there a way to move the question or do I have to rewrite it? –  Udo G Dec 31 '11 at 11:56

Hi Udo. While your question is related to photography, I don't think there is anyone here who can really answer your question. Even though "calibrate" can refer to many things, I do think a properly-worded question is more likely to get useful support over on the AndroidSE site than here. I'm going to close this copy, since you have already manually added the answer over there. I would recommend removing the "cross posted" note over on AndroidSE. –  jrista Jan 3 '12 at 0:10
