Only a few days after its release was discovered that the Samsung Galaxy S7 / S7 Edge It hides a hidden menu to scale the image. But the procedure for access to it, although it does not require root, is a little heavy and needs Nova Launcher. The xatakeros confirmed us that it also works on the Galaxy S6 / S6 Edge with Android Marshmallow.

From the update of April, which also includes the latest Android, the Samsung Galaxy S7 users security patch / S7 Edge will find in Settings > display > screen scaling the possibility of choosing the condensate image format.
