The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 comes with a blue light filter option similar to the iPhone's Night Mode
In the Galaxy Note 7 display settings menu, just below the brightness level, Samsung has added a new toggle that activates/deactivates the blue light display filter. The same functionality is also offered right from the quick settings screen, which serves to prove that Samsung is expecting users to frequently use activate and deactivate this feature.
As most hardcore Android fans may know already, the upcoming Android 7.0 Nougat - which will probably launch in about a month or so - will land with a built-in blue light filter option.
Although both Samsung and Google are now showing an interest towards blue light filters, both tech giants are lagging behind Apple when it comes to native adoption. After banning blue light filter apps from the App Store, Apple has equipped its modern iPhones with a blue light filter that's referred to as the 'Night Mode'.
Just in case you're wondering what the deal with these blue light filter apps is, what you should know is that overexposure to blue light (and smartphone displays have a lot of that) can cause eye strain. Furthermore, too much blue light when the evening settles can disturb your sleeping pattern, which is why Apple is marketing its blue light filter as the 'Night Mode'.
What do you guys think, is anyone surprised to learn that Samsung has equipped it's Galaxy Note 7 with a blue light filter now that Android 7.0 Nougat is getting ready for prime time? Will you use the feature?
