Despite of the limited size and capacity of a mobile phone, the urge to apply it to meet quotidian needs has never been unencumbered due to its appealing appearance, versatility, and readiness, such as viewing/taking pictures and shopping online. While a smartphone can act as a mini-computer, it does not always offer the same functionality as a desktop computer does. For example, the RGB values on a smartphone normally cannot be modified nor can white balance be checked. As a result, performing online shopping using a mobile phone can be tricky, especially when buying colour sensitive items. Therefore, this research takes an initiative to investigate the variations of colours for a number of smartphones while making an effort to predict their colour appearance using CIECAM02, benefiting both phone users and makers. The paper studies models of Apple iPhone5, LG Nexus 4, Samsung, and Huawei, by capitalising on comparisons with a CRT colour monitor that has been calibrated under the illuminant of D65, to be in keeping with the usual way of viewing online colours. As expected, all the phones present more colourful images than a CRT does.
