Different Screen Modes in Samsung S6 and Note 5
It is known in the smartphone world that Samsung possesses the most advanced AMOLED displays, but it should also be noted that changing the way colors look is also possible.
Starting with the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the 5’7-inch Note 5 (including other top-end Samsung phones with AMOLED screen), Samsung made color-changing modes possible by bringing into these phones a very neat screen mode in the settings menu where there are four different screen modes available to use.
Four Screen Modes to Suit Different User Needs
The default screen mode is called “Adaptive Display”, wherein the display adjusts automatically to current lighting conditions, and actually helps a lot in screen readability on a particularly sunny day where the brightness level just shoots to top levels. This option is extremely useful in these situations, which is actually where AMOLED screens shines over IPS.
AMOLED Cinema, the second of these modes, was made with the intent to bring theatre-like experience to viewing shows and movies on your phone. It has a maximum brightness of 355 in auto and manual, and minimum brightness of 2. Color reproduction in this mode results in overly-saturated hues across the spectrum. If you love the lively colors of AMOLED screens, AMOLED Cinema is for you.
Another mode is the AMOLED Photo, which is expected to be aimed at people who are concerned with Adobe RGB Color Space. It has a maximum brightness of 343 on auto and manual, and minimum brightness of 1. From a person who does not understand terms such as “Color Space”, it makes more sense to just try this mode and see if it suits your taste.
Last of these modes is simply called “Basic”, which has a maximum brightness of 339 in auto and manual, and minimum brightness of 2. Of the four different modes, this one has the most color-accurate screen. If you are into using your phone for photography, then this option if definitely for you.
