AMOLED themes are so good. If you want to squeeze even more out of your screen, you can use CF.Lumen to set everything to black and white ang get crazy SoT. Great for long bus trips or something like that.

I can, very anecdotally, confirm this in fact makes a difference. I struggled with my sleeping pattern being all over the place and the phenomenon of "tired but can't fall asleep". I installed f.lux on my Windows machine and CF Lumen on my Android and after a few weeks my sleep is much more even. I genuinely get tired now, go to sleep and fall asleep within 10 minutes, and I don't remember doing that in years.
Filthy casuals. CF.Lumen master race checking in. It actually changes the hue of what's on screen and this is how f.lux on desktop works. Other apps that put a transparent window on top of everything which can also mean your banking app won't work for security.
You can also check out: Pixel Filter which can put a checker board pattern on your screen and thus reduce the brightness without changing the colour at all. Screen resolutions are so high these days that you won't even notice the blacked out pixels.
Depending on your habits as well. If you use your phone or computer a lot before bed that can affect your sleep patterns. I am basing this on the research that F.lux links to. I use F.lux for the computer and CF.Lumen for my phone. CF.Lumen unfortunately requires root (Android) but there are other alternatives that work well. Just not as integrated.
Also, you can stay up an entire day in order to be tired at a good time. I found this works well with traveling internationally.
He is probably reading it at a dark area, yellow lights is less harsh to the eyes. Check out lux or cf.lumen for Android. I prefer cf.lumen
Linkme! : CF.lumen
Edit : "CF.lumen" - [link]
I find CF.lumen better, especially if you're rooted. It just seems to mess with colours less, but still change the colour temperature.
If you're rooted you can go with CF.Lumen which doesn't face any of the restrictions that Twilight faces because it runs at a system level.
If you are rooted anyway, I would recomend CF Lumen for automatic screen brightness. Other than that, this list very closely matches mine.

I quite like CF.lumen. Not only can you tweak the brightness and dim the display, but you can even apply color filters as well. You can create different configurations for Daytime, Sundown, and Sleep modes (times configurable as well).
Basically, it has all of the features of the other apps and then some; very recommended.
Adaway and CF Lumen are my favorite apps that benefit from root.
If you've rooted your phone, I can recommend CF.Lumen. It works even more brilliant on phones because it puts a redfilter over your whole screen after midnight when you unlock your phone (you can turn it off too ofcourse)
No more being blind when checking your phone in bed <3
From the dude that gave you SuperSU, so you know it's quality software.
cf.lumen is pretty much flux for android, but more powerful. I have an all red filter for night mode, so my phone doesn't kill my nightvision.
Gorgeous eye-saving little tool from the mastermind chainfire. Works without root as well but with root you get the proper oomph
~~Linkme: CF.lumen~~ linkme got wrong link, thus edit:
If you use Android and are rooted, considering using CF.Lumen as it very closely replicates f.lux's settings (Twilight seems to be a weird red for me): [link]
Additionally, if you're willing to go really advanced then flash a custom ROM with KCAL support and use the CF.Lumen KCAL driver, this allows the transition to be performed natively by the LCD and as a result your screenshots will still be coloured normally and it also has 0 impact on performance.
Flux is straight up doing gamma adjustments (i.e. retains black colours properly etc.) while Twilight is basically just a yellowish semi-transparent overlay with a settings menu. If you want "true" flux-like capabilities you might want to try CF.lumen (if you're rooted).
I use "CF.lumen" to help me sleep earlier by tuning the brightness level automatically. So it doesn't hurt my eyes.
And "Easy app switcher" let me switch to recent app instantly by pressing floating icon.
In latest Samsung built-in keyword, there is a setting let you swipe over keys to move the cursor in text field. (Similar to swipeselection in jailbreak ios tweak). I think this is one advantage over other keyboards.
I use CF.Lumen to adjust my screen's color temperature at dusk and at night (here it's set at 2700k). Bright screens, both in brightness and color temperature, can fuck you up at night (keeps you awake, etc).
I make sure to use a kernel with KCAL support (Nexus 5) to get the best performance out of the awesome CF.lumen. Without it, recents cards and screenshots will have a color overlay.
Kurze Vorsicht: Twilight für Android ist Schott - hier gibt's eine Alternative: [link]
Twilight selbst setzt nur eine Plane über den Bildschirm - während lumen (und ähnliche) die Pixel selbst filtern. Außerdem frisst Twilight teilweise viel Strom.
If you have a rooted device, CF.Lumen is a better option as it works by changing the colours at software compositing stage, rather than drawing a translucent layer on top.
Also, vouch for Loop habit tracker.
FWIW, CF.Lumen blows Nightmode out of the water.
"Better audio quality" can be achieved by flashing ViPER4Android - but take that with a grain of something salty. The Nexus 6P has a pretty lousy DAC, so "better" really equates to smoke and mirrors.
There's no reason any ROM should degrade photo quality.
Unfortunately I can't help you with which ROM is best for battery life, but hopefully one of those tidbits is useful.
Before LiveDisplay was added to the nightlies, I was using Chainfire's cf.lumen app (by far the best in the Play Store): [link]
It provides the same functionality, but with more options. I'll go back to using that until LiveDisplay is added into a CM S release.
Edit: to be clear, this does not produce a screen overlay like many apps. It uses a system driver to actually change color temperature. It's the closest thing to f.lux for Android I've found.
CF.lumen. The rooted version does such a great job of adapting colors as the time changes. Makes using your phone in the evenings and dead of night so much more pleasant. The non-rooted version of any app like this just applies a orange/red filter over the screen which looks terrible.
Maybe you know about CF.Lumen made by famed dev chainfire, what's the difference between this implementation and chainfire's besides his being toggable at any time?
Edit: bot messed up, here's the link [link]
For Android, the best app (especially if you are rooted) I've found is CF.Lumen. It does claim to work unrooted as well, but I've never tested it like that.
You can tweak pretty much everything with it - the brightness, colour temperature, saturation, individual colour sliders, schedules, sensor activation or triggering it from Tasker.
The more common app is Twilight, but it doesn't change the colour temperature of the screen, instead, it overlays a transparent image on top of everything. It works but isn't as good of a solution.
If you're rooted, I recommend CF Lumen. It dims your screen just like f.lux does. It's made by Chainfire, the prolific dev who is behind SuperSU, CF-Auto-Root, StickMount, and other cool Android stuff.
Use it in conjunction with something like Darker to dim your screen further. Root not required but preferable.
Edit: Firstly, CF Lumen doesn't actually dim your screen. It changes the colour temperature at sundown, so it's less blue (which keeps you awake and messes up your circadian rhythm). This makes it appear slightly orange, but you get used to it very quickly.
Darker, meanwhile, does dim your screen. There are loads of apps that do this, but Darker is the best I've tried.
If you're not rooted, Twilight is very similar to CF Lumen. I used it before I rooted. I'd always use Chainfire's apps above any others though if you're rooted.
This thread inspired me to take a look, actually. I just installed CF.Lumen, but I haven't had a chance to try it out yet. Looks promising!
I had this problem too (it's a Lollipop thing). I'm using cf.Lumen now (made by Chainfire). It doesn't draw over the display so you can still hit pop-ups.
You'll have the best results if your phone is rooted but generally speaking yes, these apps do what they are supposed to do. Dimming blue light causes the display to strain your eyes a lot less during evening/night. I'd recommend using cf.lumen (best one IMO) or f.lux. CF.lumen works with or without root but as I said, root gives better results (like covering navbar and status bar, blacks being darker and not brown). Either way, you should at least give them a try, won't hurt.
CF.lumen is hands down the best screen filter.
It requires root to really function well. Android 6.0 broke its standalone root functionality so you need to use kernel with color control built in. Here's a basically stock kernel that supports root and color control if you need it: [link]
Once you have a kernel w/color control, just select "KCAL driver" in the app.
Edit: the period in the app name screwed up the bot. Here is a link: [link]
cf.Lumen is the closest we have at the moment. If you have root access, it's honestly far more customizable than f.lux. I've messed with it a little without root though, and I don't think I'd bother if I didn't have root access. Kinda makes everything brown.
There is CF.lumen and Lux for your warm filter needs.
EDIT: I just realized what you meant with the last sentence. CF.lumen is what I use since it doesn't use the filter on black like Lux does. Unfortunately this is an AMOLED panel feature and won't work on your device :/
If your rooted you want to use CF.lumen. This app is the closest thing to f.lux. If your not rooted you could still possible use it but it might be limited in functionality.
Link me: CF.Lumen
Edit: Go home LinkMe bot, you're drunk.
If you're on a rooted device, check out CF.Lumen, it's one of the best night mode apps.
On the PC, if you're on Windows 8.1 or earlier, check out f.lux. If you're on Windows 10 then it has a built-in night mode (I'd recommend adjusting the color temperature to make it a bit more warmer).
Twilight uses an overlay which puts a coloured filter over the whole screen. This means blacks and greys have colour added, making a very artificial look. Since it's done in post processing, they can be performance and quality issues.
I have the same phone and with root and CF.Lumen it looks beautiful, as good if not better than f.lux. I also am running Spirit Kernel to have access to the KCAL driver which means the filter won't appear in screenshots or be visible twice in the app switcher or other app previews.
Good explanation (and relevant user name?).
Twilight for Android is an inferior solution, unfortunately. It works as an overlay, meaning the screen content gets mixed with the overlay color (e.g. red) which leads to dark colors actually getting brighter (e.g. black turns dark red).
A better alternative is CF.lumen, but it requires root and might not work on all devices, as it installs a custom driver. It can also use the overlay mode that requires neither root nor driver, though.
There are apps that solve the blinding problem, like Twilight and CF.lumen which cut the blue tones at night, making the screen less harsh, and offer other automated or scheduled options, too, like specific brightness levels or activating whenever the surrounding light is under a certain brightness level, etc.
cool, until now I've used CF.Lumen but an open source app is better, of course!
Can Red Moon run without a notification?
EDIT: I also found Night Screen, which is on F-Droid, too. I'd love to know how it compares.
Bot sucks, link is [link]
Pretty neat app, can automatically put an overlay on the screen based on the time - if you change the settings a bit it should be possible to just dim the screen rather ~~has~~ than also tinting it orange.
CF Lumen at the play store could do it. I use mine to change the screen based on time of day. (Lower values at night, for example)
CF.Lumen all day every day. Allows you to adjust the color temperature, what color ranges you want to disable (for example you can make everything only rendered in shades of red, no blue or green whatsoever, or shades of blue or green and no red if you like your eyes bleeding). Used to use F.Lux but on my Pixel C running Remix OS it randomly snaps off when a notification pops up and it's basically like a flashbang at night. I'd recommend rooting to get the best experience, but it's not required. Plus it's a Chainfire app, and you can enable pro features without paying for it because Chainfire is an amazing guy.
Thanks for your help nearly 5 months later! However, this helped me in a different way than everyone else here.
I came across this thread while looking up how to enable Night Light on the S9. This is because I felt like Samsung's built in blue light filter wasn't strong enough. So, using both features in conjunction, I achieved a sort of two-mode blue light filter system, something that you can achieve with desktop apps like f.lux or Android apps like CF.lumen (however, the latter requires root access to look good, and there is no root method for Snapdragon Galaxy S9 as of now.)
How I have this set up is that a few hours leading up to my bed time, at 7:30pm, I have Samsung's blue light filter set to enable. Then, using this method, at 10:00pm, I have Android's Night Light set to enable also, making the effect more intense at bedtime. Then I have both set to turn off at 5:00. This allows a compromise between customizablity in the apps mentioned above and the better-looking filter in system blue light filters.
Once again, thanks for your help!
Even though it got added to iOS most recently, it's the best filter out there. After a week of use, you wont even notice the redshift and think it isn't working properly. Then you turn it off to test it, and your eyes hurt immediately.
Try CF.lumen it can function with, or without root permission, with root permission it controls your screens color through your kernel, NOT with an overlay. The reason this is so helpful is because normal filters put a semitransparent filter over the screen which actually causes the contrast to be greatly diminished and even the visual fidelity of images or small text can be slightly reduced, with it being ever so vaguely blurry with low contrast can also cause light eye strain, so if you have or can get root try that app out I swear by it
Extremely feature rich as well once you go through the settings :)
:) for night mode you can try this app
if Miravision is wanted i can make an add-on zip.
i will try to make some nicer icons in the camera app (settings in the right) and to set 1920x1080 as default instead 4K as video resolution
Yeah, it was. Then they did an os update and blocked that feature from the rather hidden menu option.
I'm currently using CF.lumen. it automatically triggers evening mode at sunset. Free with option to upgrade.
Näitä vastaavia ohjelmia on androidille kahta sorttia; toiset piirtävät ruudun päälle punaisen läpinäkyvän kerroksen (valkoinen muuttuu vaaleanpunaiseksi ja musta tummanpunaiseksi) ja toiset muuttavat näytön värilämpötilaa ihan oikeasti (valkoinen muuttuu kellertäväksi, musta pysyy mustana).
Jälkimmäisestä (eli paremmasta :) ryhmästä voin suositella esim. CF.Lumen.
Yep it's awesome
Makes it so you can use your phone at night in the dark without going blind lol same with fl.ux on PC
install CF-Lumen and change the temperature of the screen down a bit
This fixed my issues for the most part except at the on screen nav buttons. Those seem to be burned in somehow.
>There is an automatic mode that switches it on with the sunrise and sunset.
To start, yes, I know I will have the option to turn this off, but does anyone else hate settings that rely on sunrise and sunset times? Ever since the advent of the lightbulb, we have not been beholden to the light provided by the sun. It can be pitch black outside, but very bright in my house; I don't really want my displays to start getting red just because it's dark outside. I want them to get dim and change color when the room I'm in is dark. CF.lumen is the only app that works like this.
The link isn't working for some reason, try this
Or just search play store for cf.Lumen
2.I don't know if you can swipe them away or not I'm in a custom rom. But I think you can.
I'm saying all this assuming you have 5.1 as I never used 5.0.2 for long and most if the features and settings should be the same. And lollipop has superb battery, if for nothing else then stay for the battery life!
I used to use cf.lumen to do it, but now that I run CM13, it's built into the ROM and called "LiveDisplay".
If you're running stock, just give cf.lumen a go:
Ca sa fie singura, ar trebui sa te tina ocupat, e si mai nociva pe termen lung. As recomanda CF.lumen in loc de "prestare servicii" pentru ca ai picat deja la romana.
Another commenter mentioned using cf.lumen instead but didn't say why. Most of these apps add a tint on top of everything. Cf.Lumen instead actually alters the colors. For example, in most of the apps a black background with white text would become a reddish black background with red text. With Cf lumen it's a black background with red text.
You do need to be rooted for that functionality though.
Here's a link:
Completely different things. Neither Night Shift nor any versin of f.lux uses screen tinting or overlay. All the overlay variant of "f.lux" on Android also suck pretty badly.
You want an app which can change modify the white point of the screen which is unavailable without root on Android. If you are rooted though, this is the app you're looking for.
CF.lumen - Great app for adjusting display color to be more warm during sundown. Works without root, but the colors are much better if you have root. Especially the red filter with root, combined with an AMOLED display is great when reading in complete darkness.
Deliveries Package Tracker - Best package tracker that I've found. Supports tons of providers.
I like cf lumen better. It's works with or without root and has similar options to f.lux. But it's amazing if you do have root and install the necessary display drivers for it work at a system level.
With AMOLED displays you can essentially turn off all the blue LEDs with things like CF.Lumen, which wouldn't work nearly as effectively with an LCD. So I'm curious, what do you think makes LCD IPS displays better for your eyes?
Here's what it looks like. When you touch the "menu" in the app, you can choose between "disable", "wake" (force it to apply the sundown filter), and "sleep" (force it to red mode).
Just grab it and try it out: [link]
Caveat: As a security precaution, all screen dimmer apps have the effect that if you want to install an APK file (where it asks you to confirm or cancel the installation) the "confirm" button will be disabled. Turn off the screen dimmer app, and you can press that button.
I didn't like twilight and enjoyed Chainfire's app more as it was more than just a red filter. Reminded me of f.lux on iPhone
Linkme : CF.lumen
Edit - despite the correct formatting of the app name the bot is pointing to some Asian app that doesn't have anything to do with screens lol.
Cf.lumen from prolific Android developer Chainfire. It's for root users and kills blue light at night. Gives the screen an amber glow without using the overlays non-root alternatives use. It also gets me a lot of attention at the bar. Quite striking & helps me wind down at night.
Aside from f.lux, cf.lumen (also an Android app) has been on the market for a long time. It requires root and doesn't work equally well on every phone, but it's an absolutely excellent app and the most important one on my phone.
