I know x-rite has an Android app but it's not supported by all phones and it's focused on calibration again. I would be much more interested in using HCFR to measure screen quality but how can I run HCFR or something equivalent on a mobile ? Or do you see any other possibility to achieve the same goal?
1- get DisplayCAL & ArgyllCMS
2- configure remote(web) screen (close to Calman or Light Illusion remote/web measurements counterpart)
3- select proper spectral correction (or matrix) for your mobile phone. For example WLED=sRGB IPS mobile, and for AMOLED there are some community corrections or the ones bundles with DisplayCAL.
4- configure mobile to the display mode you want to read (some AMOLEDs have sRGB mode for example), set desired brightess, turn off or set to maximum "screen standby/screen darkening" (otherwise it will ruin the readings)
5-Run a profile verification on the remote screen, but set a simulation profile (and maybe use simulation profile as display profile, I do not remember). For example setting sRGB as simulation and display profile will measure several patches and compare these readings against sRGB reference values
When you click in Measure/Generate report it will ask you to use your mobile connected to local WLAN and go to some URL like MI_LOCAL_COMPUTER_IP:LOCAL_PORT
. Go there, place colorimeter, make sure display does not go to sleep and click in DisplayCAL button for start reading.
At the end of these process you'll get typical DisplayCAL HTML report.
More or less all these tools out there are going to do the same with remote screen measurement. Some people like one-click solutions and do not worry about screen go to standby, others find DisplayCAL versatility with community CCSS a mandatory requiment.
Choose the one you like most.
IDNK if HCFR has similar setup.
