How to enable sRGB display color mode on the OnePlus 3

The OnePlus 3 has been one of the most pleasant surprises of 2016: a phone at half the price of its mainstream 5.5" rivals, it managed to deliver premium design, an extremely snappy performance with the top-of-the-line Snapdragon 820 system chip, an impressively fast fingerprint reader, and a very good camera.

However, we were not perfectly content with its display: the 5.5-inch AMOLED screen used on the OnePlus 3 features vivid colors with bluish whites, and it lacks a settings that would dial down the colors to the worldwide-accepted sRGB color standard.

Luckily, OnePlus listened and with the latest big update (that has finally started arriving, after been put on hold for a while), it makes it possible to switch between the default, oversaturated colors and more properly balanced colors that adhere to the sRGB color standard.

If your OnePlus 3 has received the update, you should be able to follow the simple instructions right below to enable sRGB color mode and see the difference for yourself.

*Keep in mind that you'd need to first enable Developer Options by going into Settings > About > Then tap on "Build number" seven times.
