    The latest update from Google addressed for those that felt like the colors were muted. So now you can go boosted, natural (color that was considered muted), or saturated (which made the phone look pink).

    I played around a little bit. Didn't notice too much difference between "Boosted" and "Normal", but Saturated was a little too overblown for me. I opted to leave it at Boosted though.

    (sigh)


    Go into settings and see if you can find the setting to check for vivid colors setting.

    I think Boosted is just the vivd colors checked from before, natural is unchecked, and Saturated is just extreme.

    The "Vivid" Slider is gone now. Replaced by : "Colors" -> which takes you to the 3 new options. Prior to the update I had Vivid enabled and after the update "Boosted" was selected by default.
