Samsung Galaxy S3: How to Change Screen Mode

One way that you can do to save your battery life is by enabling Automatic brightness option that you can find under display settings. Turning on this option will make your Samsung Galaxy SIII will automatically become bright less when you're indoors and become brighter when you're outdoors.

Another option available under display settings that you can use to save the battery is Screen mode option. This option will allow you to choose the different color profile. As we all know that AMOLED screen owned by this phone will consume less battery on some color profiles, such as dark color will consume less than the bright ones.

How to choose screen mode?
Below are the steps to do if you want to change display colour profile on your phone:
  1. Tap the Menu key from your Home screen.
  2. On pop up menu select Settings.
  3. Tap Display.
  4. Tap Screen mode.
  5. Now you will see four options available, they are Dynamic, Standard, Natural and Movie.
  6. Tap the required screen mode you wish to use. Every time you tap in the different screen mode option, you will see a preview of this screen mode at the top of the screen.
  7. Tap Save button to save the changes.

Once upon the time, I've found the thread on the XDA Developer forum that ask the members to give their polls about which the screen mode they use. The result, the most used screen mode is standard as they were said that this mode has a good balance between saturation and normalness, while the most rarely used screen mode is movie. So, which screen mode do you use?

    can I help me?
    I want find it and change to Dynamic.

    1. Hi Mohammmad Roshanbin,

      Seems this option is not available on S3 i747. I've read from the manual guide, there is no option to change screen mode under display settings.

  2. The screen mode on n7000 not changing.

    I have the samsung galaxy s3 t999 running 4.3 jelly Bean?
    Am I suppoe to have the Screen mode feature cuz I really dislike over saturated colors on My phone...

    1. Hi Johny Sharma,
      Thanks for coming.
      In Android 4.3, this option can be found under Settings>My device tab> Display>Screen mode. FYI, some carriers may disabled this feature for certain reason. That's might be the reason why the user in carrier x can find certain option in their phone, while the others in another carrier can't.
      Hope this helps :)
