Why is the Color of the Same Image Different When Displayed on a Laptop and Mobile Device?
The same image will look different on a laptop and mobile device because the resolution is different on both devices. The visual dimensions of the display vary depending on the size of the screen.
The pixel size for a Samsung Galaxy Note 9, for instance, is 1440 x 2960. On a 13-inch MacBook Pro, on the other hand, it's 2800 x 1800. The Samsung is way smaller than the MacBook, so the pixels can only take up so much space. That difference is naturally going to make an image look a different color on each screen.
The age of the screen will also play a part in your color viewing. We have noticed as computers age the color seems to be less accurate. If the exact shade is important we recommend viewing the fabric of interest on a few different screens before making your purchase.
What Does This Have To Do With Fabric?
