Dark mode has quickly become one of everyone’s favorite features on smartphones. Most of us keep dark mode on all the time, since it does help with battery life, and it’s a lot easier on the eyes too. However, dark mode is not turned on by default on the Galaxy S21. So we’ll be showing you how to turn on dark mode on the Galaxy S21 (that includes the Galaxy S21, S21 Plus and the S21 Ultra) in this article.
How to enable dark mode on Galaxy S21 series
First things first, you’re going to need to head into the Settings app on your Galaxy S21.
Next, tap on Display.
Now at the very top of this page, you should see an option for Light and Dark. Which also shows you what they do. You can simply tap on Dark here to turn on dark mode for the Galaxy S21.
But, if you want to schedule when it turns on, hit the “Dark mode settings” button just below it.
From here, you can set it to turn on as scheduled. You can choose to do sunset to sunrise, or set your own schedule for dark mode.
On these settings you can also choose to turn on the Adaptive color filter at the same time. This is going to remove the blue light, making it easier to use your phone when it’s dark.
And that’s about it.
How to use the dark mode toggle
There’s another, quicker way to turn on dark mode. And thats’ with the Quick Settings toggle.
Simply pull down your notification shade, all the way down so the Quick Settings are all still showing.
Swipe over to the second page, and towards the bottom you should see a toggle for Dark Mode. Just tap on that, and you’re good to go.
If you want to use this toggle more often, you can of course edit the toggles in the Quick Settings page by tapping on the three dots icon in the corner and tapping on button order.
