How to change the color profile on the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL
Switching the color profile on your Pixel 2 only takes a few taps!
Google's Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL both have OLED displays, but they show colors very differently. If you want to adjust the way colors look on your screen, you have a few options from within the Settings. We've got the details on how to do it here!
How to switch your color profile with Google's Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 XL
When the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL launched, there were two options in the Settings for display colors: Balanced, and Vibrant. Both kept the colors pretty muted, and they looked fine on the Pixel 2 but due to the Pixel 2 XL's colder display, neither made the colors pop. With the November update, both phones got new color options: Boosted, Natural, or Saturated colors. Here's how to change them.
- Open the Settings on your phone.
Scroll down and tap Display.
- Tap Advanced to open more options for Display.
Tap the toggle to switch between color profiles.
The Saturated option is arguably more important for the Pixel 2 XL, but if you're used to the vibrant colors of a Galaxy phone, it's a great change for both the larger and smaller Pixels.
