    Hi there, I just updated my phone to One UI 2 and Android 10. I noticed that there seems to be 2 Blue Light filter options and I can't find any clarification online as to what the difference is. The "old" one that was there before the Android 10 update is under Settings>Display>Blue light filter. Now the update adds the Settings>Display>Dark mode>Adaptive color filter, the description calls it a Blue light filter. Does anyone know the difference between these 2 settings? They each seem to operate autonomously.

    Thanks,
    Dan

    Hi welcome !
    I see what you mean , I think probably while you have dark mode on it does something different like calibrate the screen compared to not having dark mode on .

    It's probably just another place you can turn the filter on and off - but it's the same filter. (Different parts of an app, like Settings, are developed by different developers, and sometimes communications doesn't work and one thinks the other one was going to take a setting out of his part, when that's not what he said. In smaller companies, they're usually worked out pretty quickly, but in one the size of Google, or Samsung [depending on who did it], the two of them could work in different buildings, and rarely meet.)

    Welcome to Android Central!

    Samsung has been known to put the same setting in different places. As @Rukbat said I'm not sure if it's an oversight on Samsung's part or if they just decided it needed to be in two places.
