When Samsung Galaxy S7 received the Nougat Update, Blue Light filter was the highlighted point. It was a welcome update and was appreciated for reducing the eye strain from using the phone during the night. The official manual on Samsung Galaxy S6 nougat update confirms the presence of Blue Light in the new update.

Google Pixel which was the first device to come with Android Nougat already had a similar feature on default. Blue Light when turned on senses the warmth of surrounding and will tone down the display to reflect warmer colors to reduce the eye strain. Blue Light also features a scheduler to adapt itself according to your bed-timing.

    Pixel was NOT the first device with nougat, it was LG V20. Get your facts straight.
