Galaxy A10 color temprature

I bought Galaxy A10 yesterday and while it is a nice phone, I don't like the screen at all. Colors look very washed out and unlike other Galaxy phones with an OLED display, my A10 doesn't have any "Screen Mode" in the Display section of settings to at least change the temperature to my own liking or at least I haven't been able to find such option. There is one option in Developer settings where you can enable sRGB but in A10 it doesn't work. After I enable it, as soon as I leave the screen and go back, the toggle has turned off on its own. And enabling it has no effect either.

Is there any way at all to adjust the color temperature of this phone?

And no, returning the phone is not an option. Unfortunately in my country, they only accept a refund if there's something physically wrong with the phone. And I know it's a cheap 120$ phone but in my country and with my salary 120$ is almost a month's worth of my salary. At this point, I wish I had bought a Huawei phone.

You might be able to change the color scheme using a third party app or a custom launcher :smiling-face:

Well that's the thing. I'm asking if you know of any app that can do this.

That's not what I'm looking for but thanks. These apps just apply a filter over the display and don't change the color saturation. I'm looking for something like "Splendid" app on Asus devices, or "Screen mode" on Samsung devices where I can manually change the color temperature and not just apply a filter over the screen. 

I'm really curious to know why Samsung didn't put the same"Screen Mode" app on this device as well. This is the first time I've seen a Galaxy device that doesn't have it.

It's because for some reason Samsung disabled changing the screen colours on phones with an LCD screen like the a10.

Screen mode is actually inside the settings for me on my S9+ (It isn't an app).

That said, it might be disabled due to hardware limitations.

There are none. Samsung could have easily added the option.

There's one app that might work، I've forgotten its name and it needs root acces which I'm not willing to do.

The other way is to root the device and use a custom kernel which then again  I'mnot willing to do.

It's really weird since this has literally no cost for Samsung and all the other brands like Xiaomi and Huawei offer these features. No reason why Samsung wouldn't.
