Is it possible to have a grayscale dispaly in Sailfish OS? I saw this feature on Android OS and I would like it to be implemented on Sailfish OS, and also useful for power saving.

It isn't the same thing, because in this mode Andorid OS is all grayscale: settings, icons app, game, app, ecc.. The ambience doesn't change it

The color profile in SailfishOS (at least in Jolla1) is fixed/not accessible, at least that is what I gather from looking at mcetool output.

A greyscale mode would only save power if the device has an AMOLED display and currently no officially supported SFOS devices have an AMOLED screen.

But I agree that this would be a nice-to-have feature for the future.

@Edz Yep I searched on my Jolla 1 and nothing. @Alex I don't know the question AMOLED screen, but I think other device have this function, I see other old mobile and tablet with Android OS and they have it. Nexus 7 for example have it and I see doesn't have AMOLED screen, but the battery life is good with it.
