How to Make Adjustments to Your Samsung Galaxy 5 Screen

April 28, 2014, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Does your smartphone let you make adjustments to the display as you want? Chances are the old phones you owned didn’t offer you this option.  Now that the Samsung Galaxy S5 has arrived, you have this option at your fingertips.

Samsung has thrown in options to change brightness,  and more. However, we know you still haven’t tried this out as you weren’t very confident of doing that, right?  Sammy allows you to choose your own display mode. Isn’t that awesome?

A special option in the settings menu provides you with the option of having added control over your phone’s display. Let’s tell you how to go about doing that.


What you need to do first is to pick a new screen mode on the Galaxy S5. Then go to Settings, select Display, and click on Screen Mode.

Once you have done this, you will see five display options appear, and they are Adapt Display, Dynamic, Standard, Professional Photo, and Cinema. You know better on what is the right one for you.

In case you didn’t know, the Adapt Display is default on the Galaxy S5. Going by what folks at CNet say, the option optimizes features such as color, saturation, and sharpness. When you are in a surrounding which has high ambient light, Adapt Display mode is the best for you.

Meanwhile, if you want to choose Dynamic or Standard mode, you need to know that the hues on your display may not be as accurate as those in Adapt Display, Professional Photo, or Cinema modes. But then, if you are looking to sport a display that lets colors pop, these two modes are ideal.

Accurate colors are dream to any shutterbug. That is exactly why Samsung has brought in the Professional Photo mode  to the S5. This mode also allows for viewing high-end Adobe RGB-standard photos.

In the meantime, if you love viewing photos on your phone, Cinema Mode is good for you. This mode in fact gives you the most accurate colors you can dream of. The mode works best when you are in ambient lighting.

The device also would do better in terms of great display of if you could disable the “auto adjust screen tone” setting on your phone. Try these out and let us know.
