Galaxy S9 Plus Display: Screen Modes for Everyone’s Taste
The key element for a great Android smartphone has always been a truly innovative and top performing display and Samsung knows it better than anyone. Its latest Galaxy S9 Plus comes with a 6.2″ Quad HD+ Super AMOLED (2960×1440) 529 ppi Infinity Display and who doesn’t fell in love with a near bezel-less, full-frontal, edge-to-edge screen?
Even so, you must remember that certain aspects need to be changed such as the default resolution (Full HD+) that can be changed to Quad HD+ in Settings or getting to know the four Screen Modes for everyone’s taste.
The Galaxy S9 Plus handset has no less than four user selectable Screen Modes, just as its predecessor: Adaptive Display, AMOLED Photo, AMOLED Cinema, and the Basic Screen Mode, which matches the Standard sRGB / Rec.709 Color Gamut. This one is currently used for producing pretty much every piece of consumer content – TV, films, videos, or games.
What every single mode means and how to get the best of every situation? Watching videos or movies, checking your latest photos or viewing online merchandise should all be flawless experiences on a handset such as yours, but this often depends on the choices that you are willing to make:
How to Choose a new Screen mode on your Galaxy S9 Plus:
- Search in Settings for screen mode;
- Then, you can select one of the four color modes previously mentioned: Adaptive Display, AMOLED Cinema, AMOLED Photo or Basic;
- Well, the default for the Galaxy S9 Plus is the Adaptive Display Mode, which features a wide colour gamut and, also having built-in real-time adaptive capabilities to adjust the saturation, colour gamut or white balance. This is how you normally achieve the best arrangement for any given content displayed on the screen;
- Even if the Adaptive Display Mode has a wider color gamut than AMOLED Cinema or Photo, the latter two feature a more neutral color balance and improved color accuracy. Therefore, AMOLED Photo Screen Mode is ideal for photography enthusiasts, while AMOLED Cinema is recommended when watching videos or movies;
- Basic mode is a mode for sRGB compliance. This is why you should use the Basic screen mode for the best color and image accuracy, which is especially important when viewing photos from family and friends, for sporting events with image content and colors that you are familiar with, and also for viewing online merchandise, in order to have a good idea of exactly what colors you are buying and avoid the scenario of having to return the products.
