Adjust your Galaxy phone's display settings
You've got big plans for your phone, but will it be able to keep up? The answer is yes - your Galaxy phone can use full screen apps and other screen features to adapt to your everyday activities, whether you're playing a game at home or reading at the pool.
Note: Available screens and settings may vary by wireless service provider, software version, and phone model.
Customize your font size and style
The new blog you're reading is spellbinding, but looking at the screen is straining your eyes. Adjust the font and give your eyes a rest.
From Settings, tap Display. To change the font size and style, tap Font size and style, and then adjust the options as desired.
To make items on your screen appear larger or smaller, tap Screen zoom, and use the slider to adjust the level of zoom.
Turn on Full screen apps
That game would be much easier if your thumbs had more space, and that video would look much better if it was bigger. Just check to see if the app can be used in full screen.
From Settings, search for and select Full screen apps. Tap Full screen apps. To enable full screen aspect ratio, swipe to and tap the switch next to your desired apps.
Note: Some app developers may not have optimized apps for full screen mode. If an app doesn't look right in full screen, try choosing Auto instead.
Choose a Screen mode
Does that image seem a bit off? You can use Screen mode settings to adjust how the display looks.
From Settings, tap Display, and then tap Screen mode. Next, choose your desired screen mode. But keep in mind that some screen modes may not be available unless the Blue light filter is turned off.
Note: Depending on the phone model, the screen modes may vary or be unavailable.
Adjust your screen brightness
It's so sunny out, you can barely see the screen. No worries, you can adjust the brightness yourself or have your phone do it for you.
From Settings, tap Display. Adjust the slider until you reach your desired brightness.
You can also turn Adaptive brightness on or off - this feature will automatically adjust your phone's brightness depending if you're in a bright or dark environment. To turn Adaptive brightness on or off, tap the switch.
