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.

Samsung already unveiled one Galaxy S6 Edge unboxing video on its YouTube channel. It was pretty boring, but trust us, even if you’re not a Samsung fan, you’re going to want to watch this one, in which a Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge unboxing soon blows up into a first-person action movie.

Of the smartphone stories which played out in 2014, two of the biggest were the triumph of Apple’s iPhone 6, which sold a massive 10 million+ units in its opening weekend alone, and the faltering of Samsung, which fell from the dominant position it had enjoyed since 2011.

Today, a new report from Gartner (paywall) breaks down both the 1.2 billion smartphone sales that took place worldwide last year, and also the sales from Q4 2014 — revealing how Apple leaped ahead in the smartphone category, while the South Korean tech giant Samsung started to lose its footing.

Make no mistake about it: this was the year everything changed.
