The OnePlus 5 Reading Mode does a bit more than just optimizing the display. Here, you can set individual apps for this feature. So that whenever you open those particular apps, the reading mode would kick in automatically.
The good news is, you can have the OnePlus 5-like reading mode on any Android phone (minus the individual app feature) by just tweaking the settings a bit. As we always emphasize, the world of Android is huge and a majority of the time, the tweaks are hidden or tucked away in faraway corners.
If this is the first time you are exploring Developers Option, chances are that you will not find it in the Android Settings menu. To turn on Developer option, head over to Settings and scroll down to the About phone section.
Tap on the Build Number 7 times until you see a notification that the developer options are enabled. Once done, you will see the new item on the settings menu.
Of course, it isn’t always feasible to head over to the Settings to turn on/off the settings. What we can do is make the journey a tad short. There goes an app by the name of QuickShortcutMaker, which can make a shortcut of the Developer option on the home screen.
Open the app and search for the string “developer” in Activities and select it. Make sure that the search type is Normal search.
If you want you can choose to change the icon name or type, at this point.
Tap on Create and the icon will be placed neatly on the home screen. Now you’ll be able to switch on/off the monochromatic hue anytime you wish.
