2. Switch the screen mode

One of the great things about the Samsung Galaxy S6 is that it lets you choose what the screen looks like. Want super-charged colours? Fine, go right ahead. Want something more natural? That’s on offer too. Having used the Galaxy S6 for a while now, we think the phone’s Basic mode is by far the best.

You’ll find this in Settings > Display > Screen Mode, alongside the other screen modes like Adaptive Display and AMOLED Cinema. At first Basic will seem a bit glum and undersaturated because, well, it is compared with the other modes. However, bed into it and you’ll realise it’s by far the most natural.

This doesn’t matter too much when you’re flicking through menus, but when watching movies people’s faces look far more realistic and photos won’t suddenly look as though they’ve been zapped by a desaturation ray as soon as you take them off the phone. You know it makes sense.
