Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge: How to Enable or Disable Negative Colors in Android 5.1.1 Lollipop

If you often use your Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge in low-light situations(e.g., reading an e-book or a long post in a webpage at night) or are very sensitive with light, you can invert the screen's colors using the negative colors feature so that it'll look like a negative film and be dominated with the dark colors. This will not only be able to make reading easier for your eyes and prevent eye strain as you can use this feature as night mode where the background will be in black and the text will be in white, but also conserve more battery power because darker colors consume less power than brighter ones. But, you have to remember that this feature effects the screen only, as the example, the result of photos, videos, or screenshots taken when negative colors is enabled will be saved in full-color.
