    Answer a few quick questions to evaluate your visit.

    Screen settings

    Arrow left Xperia 10 support overview

    You can change the screen’s behaviour, brightness, viewing size and quality. For example, select a bigger font or display size for easier reading or change the icons you see in the status bar.

    If you want to change your background, see Background. To change how long you want to have the screen on before it is turned off, see Turning the screen on or off.

    To change a screen setting

    1. Find and tap Settings > Display.
    2. Tap the setting you want to change.
    3. Use the sliders, checkboxes or additional menus to adjust.

    Brightness level

    Adjust the brightness level with the slider. You can also enable Adaptive brightness to automatically optimise brightness based on surrounding light.

    White balance

    Select one of the preset settings. If you select Custom, you can use the sliders to adjust the white balance. To revert to the default setting, select Standard.

    Prevent accidental operations with screen off

    You can prevent your device from being activated by mistake while placed in a pocket or a bag. Tap the Prevent accidental operations with screen off switch to enable or disable the feature.

    Colour gamut and contrast

    Enhance the quality of photos and videos when viewing them on your device. For example, use Super-vivid mode to make colours appear more vibrant on-screen.

    Auto-rotate screen

    Set the screen to rotate automatically when the device is turned, or set it to stay in portrait view.

    Hint

    Even if the Auto-rotate screen function is disabled, you can rotate the screen manually by tapping (Rotate icon) in the navigation bar.

    Night Light

    Night Light switches the colour of the screen to amber. This makes it easier to view the screen in a darker setting, and also makes it easier to fall asleep.

    To change a lock screen setting

    1. Find and tap Settings > Display > Advanced > Lock screen preferences.
    2. Tap the setting you want to change.
    3. Use the switches, checkboxes or additional menus to adjust.
