Secrete Settings & Features of Samsung Galaxy Phones

An XDA contributor LauCass has developed a little app called Settings+ that lets you discover hidden settings and features of your Samsung Galaxy phones without root. Once you start the app, you will get a menu similar to your phone’s settings menu with access to various hidden features and settings of Samsung galaxy phones. The app requires no root access.




Depending on the phone model and Android version of Samsung galaxy phones, some hidden menu screen may not be displayed on some devices and/or some settings shortcuts are not working. The unavailable shortcuts are grayed out that means you cannot access them.

Note that shortcuts with green icons are normally available in the standard menu on all Samsung mobile devices. Shortcuts with blue icon are hidden settings/features on most devices. Also, note that even if the shortcuts are present, their proper operation is not guaranteed.

For instance on a Galaxy Note 3 (N9005 – Lollipop) all the screens are available and the following hidden screens are working well:

  • – Display/ Enhanced display mode -> Allows to enable a new display mode
  • – S View / Enhanced background -> Allows to use custom background picture
  • – Power saving mode / Enhanced mode -> Allows to enable gray scale display
  • – More / Private mode
  • – More / Users
