    OK, I have just discovered that pressing the power and volume up buttons simultaneously, will reverse the colours!
    I suspect that's how some posters have ended up with negative screens!

    Wow! Nice catch! Does the same action reverse the screen to normal colours?

    Since it's not something you'd want to do often, if at all, this hard button shortcut is presumably unintentional. I'd guess.

    It sounds like an accessibility shortcut that comes enabled by default. You fancy some extra work, mate?

    You could try checking out which accessibility/vision option is affected by this shortcut. Also, is there any way to disable this trick? Maybe some option to disable accessibility shortcuts?

    I actually like the reverse colour, it's a substitute for dark themes. When I sit at work late at night, I do it and chat to mates on whatsap in the dark.
    The older devices with physical home button, you could triple press that to reverse colour...
