For as similar as the LG Optimus G and the Nexus 4 are, they have their differences. Maybe the most well known is the disabling of the LTE radio in the Nexus 4, but the two phones also treat their displays differently, thanks to just how LG and Google configured their software. If you wish the Nexus 4 had the sort of bold colors seen on the Optimus G, you’re in luck, as a new kernel mod from the guys behind Paranoid Android (which is itself an awesome custom ROM) seeks to create a “best of both worlds” situation on the Nexus 4.

While this effort took a whole lot of hands-on tweaking to get it looking just right, at its heart it’s essentially LG’s settings for bold colors without over-saturation, black blacks, and white whites, combined with the work Google had done to avoid color banding artifacts. Mix those together, optimize the gamma channel values, and you get what should be a big improvement to the Nexus 4’s image quality.

The modified kernel is available in two versions, one a little brighter and one a little darker, ready to be added to the custom ROM of your choice.
