    Super AMOLED displays like the one found on the Galaxy S7 are great. One reason they are so awesome is the incredible contrast you get with the deep dark blacks the screen is able to produce by turning off individual pixels. The only draw back is that some of the darker scenes you will view may be too dark and hard to see.

    There is a fix for this. Chris Chavez of Phandroid discovered that by using the Twighlight app, traditionally used for helping you fall asleep by giving the display a blue hue, can be used to get rid of some of that crazy contrast. Simply apply the daytime friendly color tint and make adjustments accordingly. Head to the link below for further details.

    Nice out-of-the-box use idea for an app that's already very nice, but kind of a one-trick pony.

    I used Twilight every night on my tablet for reading at bedtime until Google Books integrated a similar color filter feature.
