A new product always brings many unique features that we may not have discovered yet. On the occasion of the Galaxy S20 series officially launched in Vietnam, let’s learn the tips to use the device more perfectly.
1. Turn off Bixby calling on the power key
Bixby is a virtual assistant introduced by Samsung since 2017 and appears on many of their smartphone products, which can be activated via a dedicated hardware key. However, since the Galaxy Note10, Samsung has included this feature with the power key, making users sometimes confused during operation.
If you do not need to quickly call Bixby from the power key and want the key to return to the original function (power off or reboot) then go to Settings> Advanced Features> Edge key and select the Power off menu.
Here you can also choose to press the power key twice to activate the camera or other applications. Personally, to activate the camera, take out the snap button to shoot quick moments very conveniently.
2. Customize the Edge Panel
The edge screen is where you can place the application shortcuts or contacts that you frequently contact so that you can quickly call them out without too much clutter. Just swipe from the right edge (or left, whichever you choose) and this Edge Screen will appear.
To customize, swipe the edge of the screen, then select the Settings icon to be able to add or remove applications, reminders, compass, weather or contacts as you like.
In addition, you can further adjust the position, transparency, size and color of this side screen by going to the Control Key Settings.
3. Quick Share
This is a new feature on the Galaxy S20 series and, like the name, it is used to quickly share content such as photos, videos to other Galaxy S20 phones that are enabled. Samsung said this feature can be shared with 5 devices at a time in close proximity to each other and in the near future will update more for their other models.
So if you’re using the new Galaxy S20, and want to share it with friends or lovers (also using this series), you can turn on the Quick Share feature to transfer content more quickly.
To activate, swipe down from the notification bar, Quick Share will be on page 2 of this notification bar. And whenever you need to share photos or videos, just select the share button, Quick Share item will appear the name of the phone is also enabled this feature. As the case I am doing here is the Galaxy S20 Ultra sharing a photo of the Galaxy S20 +.
4. The photography key has more uses than you think
Open the camera app, maybe you think the photo key is just a single click away, right? Then try to press and hold, the Galaxy S20 will now record video. If you press the shutter button down and hold, the device will perform multiple consecutive shooting operations (Burst shot).
In addition, you can also drag virtual keys to any area on the screen for easier operation.
5. Easier control of zoom ranges
Camera interface of Galaxy S20 has different zoom ranges for users to choose. For example, when you click the icon of a tree, which activates the telephoto camera, at this time the zoom intervals will appear respectively 0.5x, 2x, 4x, 10x, 20x, 30x (for Galaxy S20 and S20 +) and 0.5x , 2x, 4x, 10x, 30x, 100x (with Galaxy S20 Ultra).
In addition, you can also press and hold on one of those zoom numbers to activate the manual zoom bar to drag to your desired level.
6. Cover “charmed mole” if you don’t want it to appear
Go to Settings> Display> Full screen apps> Advanced settings> Hide camera missing area. Now the black border will cover this area, rounded the corner so you can see the overall look more natural.
7. Turn on the 120 Hz refresh rate
It would be flawed to use the Galaxy S20 without opening the refresh rate to 120 Hz. By default, the device is set at 60 Hz to save more power, but if you want a better visual experience, a smoother look, especially in action games or fast-moving movies, Turn on 120 Hz.
Go to Settings> Display> Motion smoothness> High refresh rate (120 Hz).
8. Turn on the Always On feature
Always On is also one of Samsung specialties in recent years, allowing to display some information such as messages, missed calls, time … right on the lock screen.
Go to Settings> Lock Screen> Always On Display (you can choose to always display or touch the screen to display), besides you can also change the clock type or song information being played.
9. Turn on application priority to run background faster
Normally when accessing the running application window and select Close all, all apps will be turned off to free RAM. However, there are some applications you do not want that, want to prioritize so that you can still appear immediately.
Then just click on the icon on the application window you want to “remain”, then select “Please continue to open for quick launch”.
