Vision Protection Mode
It’s no secret that the blue emission spectrum of modern displays in smartphones, tablets and other gadgets negatively affects vision.

In EMUI 5.0, you can turn on the blue filter (“Vision Protection” mode) and, moreover, set the schedule for what time of day this mode will be activated. After turning on the filter, the colors become soft and do not hurt the eyes in the evening. In a word, enjoy reading. social media feeds!
