One tip for using a Samsung phone is using the Quick Settings menu and then pressing and holding the Wi-fi button to instantly go to Wi-Fi settings and make necessary changes. Quick Settings also provides links to changing Bluetooth and other phone settings.
Users can customize their Quick Settings by swiping down from the top of the screen and tapping the grid button in the upper right-hand corner. Tapping the pencil button now allows them to drag shortcuts to any position they desire, allowing them to save time accessing their favorite apps.
Samsung Galaxy owners can use the Quick Settings menu to enable Multi Window, which allows users to run two apps on the screen at the same time. Users can also use this mode to move things between the two windows, such as attaching photos to email by dragging and dropping them into an outgoing mail message.
Another Samsung Galaxy tip for owners is to disable the home button shortcut for the phone's vocal assistant, S Voice. Doing so reduces the delay when closing apps because the phone is no longer waiting for the user to tap the home button twice to enable it. To disable the shortcut, users tap the home button twice to activate the voice assistant, touch the three dots located in the right-hand corner, and then tap settings. Next, they must uncheck the box labeled "Open via the home key."
