Yes, and that was what I was addressing.
Doing so is more complex than one would think.
First of all,you don't want to reduce the resolution, which means that the overall pixelsize needs to remain the same (keep the 1600x1200 resolution means you can't increase pixel size).
If the pixelsize is the same size, and you want more white to appear, there's no other way than to snoop off some pixel space from the colors,like in this pic:
This would result in less surface space for colors, thus even less vibrant colors.
The JBC doesn't really have the world's best colors; reducing them any less and you'd have a B&W device.
If you want to see more vibrant colors, you'd actually have to remove the white pixel and just use an RGB display, but current screen is the best compromise between colors and white back ground.
Pixels can't just be resized at any size you want to.There has to be some sort of squarish form for a pixel, not only to make easier manufacturing possible, but also to make screens compatible with current display drivers.
The only way to increase both colors and white background,will be to use less sensitive filters; filters aimed more towards the yellow. They'd give slightly brighter colors, and lighter background,at the cost of color precision;not that it matters that much, because the JBC does not have too precise color reproduction.
One thing is, light emitting from an LCD only passes the color filter once.
Light emitting from an outside source, passes the color filter twice; one more time as it bounces back from the back panel; so the light will be filtered twice. With that in mind they should make the LCD panel more with these color filters:
Meaning either more yellow, or make the filters thinner, that more light might pass the filter, and also more light exit the filter.Especially red and blue which appear more dark to the eye than green.
