Samsung is famous for its over-saturated Super AMOLED displays, but for those who prefer a more natural look, there’s a hidden display mode that’s super easy to activate. It’s available on more recent Galaxy devices like the Galaxy S6, S6 edge, and Note 4, and you don’t need root access to enable it.

Here’s how to find it.

While the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge aren’t officially available until April 10, customers who pre-ordered their devices through T-Mobile have already begun receiving them. But many aren’t as happy as you might expect them to be.

Some early adopters are reporting a number of issues with the Galaxy S6 Edge’s display, including surface scratches and even dead pixels.

Its fragile glass display is usually the first thing that breaks when you drop your smartphone, and getting it repaired can prove pretty costly. But some manufacturers will give you your first screen replacement absolutely free — such as HTC. Google is going one step further and offering Nexus 5 owners a replacement handset when they break their screen — but only if the device meets its strict criteria.
