How dark a person likes their gemstone is 100% personal but it sounds like it doesn't have enough saturation for you. Considering that the stone is shadowed and indoors, it's not all that bad a sapphire. I don't know the lighting condition of the other sapphire you saw on PS but she had sufficient indoor lighting and indirect sunlight always show sapphires at their best. If you don't like what you see outdoors, then I would keep looking for the right one.
