    Welcome to the forums! You have it in Ultra Power Saving mode. There should be a settings option near the top where you can turn it off. Tap the three dot menu and see if it's there

    Welcome to Android Central! It sounds like you're on Ultra Power Saving mode. Change it back to normal.

    It doesn't seem to be an ultra power saving mode issue. I am replying right now while stuck in black and white. My ultra power saving is off, and I would not have internet if I was in ultra. All of my icons are there and detailed, just everything black and white. Before it started, I edited a photo to black and white effect. I've now deleted that photo, but it didn"t help.
    On restart, color is there for a minute, but then turns black and white again as if a bootup program or setting all of a sudden kicked in.

    ^^^Welcome to Android Central.

    Try a Cache Partition wipe. Tell us whether that fixes it.

    Hello, my galaxy 6 was doing the same thing. It was not in ultra saving mode. The grayscale was turned on in accessibility. I hope this helps.

    Open your settings, go to "personal", then click on "accessibility", then click on "vision", and finally go down and click off on "Grayscale"

    Welcome.

    If none of the previous suggestions in this thread works, it may be best to contact the manufacturer's customer support.

    Open Settings> About device
    Then tap “Build number” seven times to enable Developer options.
    Go back to Settings menu and now you'll be able to see “Developer options” there.

    In developer options, scroll down to the entry which says "Simulate color space" and select it
    Choose the option "disabled" and press ok.
    You should have the color back.
