3/5 Transform your phone in a negative version

If you want a distinct display, Android phones can reverse colours just like the negative of a photo. To do so, go to "Settings" then tap "Accessibility" then "Visibility enhancements." By activating “negative colours,” your entire phone will be affected, even your applications.

4/5 Activate a hidden menu for developers

If you've always dreamed of becoming a developer, here is what you need to do. Go to your phone "Settings," then tap "About phone" then "software information," tap several times on "Version number" or "Build number" to activate the developer options menu. Every time you tap "Version number," a small window indicates the number of steps "before becoming developer." Once you have reached the right number of clicks, you will need to enter your PIN to activate the developer menu. You just need to go back to "Settings" to select "Developer option." On the latest range of Samsung smartphones, you just need to deactivate this menu to delete the developer mode.
