  1. I found the pale blue colour of the Senders name in emails with S3 very difficult to read. After following your advice to disable background colour I can say it is now very much easier to read. I have also Display Brightness App to give even greater control. Thank you for your advice

    1. Hi Llewtrow,
      Thanks for coming.
      I'm so glad to know if it works for you :)

  2. I am having an issue with this setting. I tried the background color change and I hate it. Now no matter what I do I can't get back the default colors. All my apps are displayed as blueish strange color - i can hardly read anything. I have unchecked background color, also turned all power saving options off - nothing resets color. Any help appreciated!!
