10 Features of the Samsung Galaxy S7 that you Should Know

We know how you love the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the endless number of features this flagship have, but do you know the hidden ones? Those that are important but unfamiliar; cool but completely hidden from view. Now, you will know and use these features for a whole new experience.

1. Long Presses

The multi tasking and home buttons can also be used for other stuff when long pressed.

Tip: Long press the multi-task button and it will bring up split screen. This lets you run two apps simultaneously.

Long press the home button and it will bring up Google Now. This one’s for your quick searches online.

2. Full Settings

On your homescreen, we know what features would be dragged down when you swipe with one finger. But what about two?

Tip: Swipe down using two fingers to bring the entire array of settings including those that are hidden from view. In case you really want to go deeper down the menus of a setting, long tap on it. So when you want to setup your Wi-Fi, long tap and you will find yourself in the Settings page.

3. Do Not Disturb

You can still ignore calls on times when you really don’t have to take them. Here’s how on a Samsung Galaxy S7.

Tip:

  • Go to Settings -> Sounds and vibration ->Do Not Disturb
  • Turn it on.
  • On this same page you can set exceptions and schedules.

4. Mute Calls

You can mute calls by covering the screen with your hand or flipping the phone downwards. But this works only if you are in Sound Mode. Here’s how to do it.

Tip:

  • Go to Settings -> Sounds and Notifications
  • Tap Sound mode and set it to Sound.
  • Use this gesture if you want a convenient way to silence you phone with one gesture.

  • Go to Settings -> Display -> Always on display
  • Switch it on.
  • You can choose if you want a Calendar, a Clock or an Image as your display.

10. Game Launcher

Game Launcher on the Samsung Galaxy S7 is just a folder with all your games in it. What’s special? It can reduce the frame rates of the games to save battery life and processing power.

Tip:

This also enables the user to screen record games at 1080p, stops notifications when you are gaming, minimize your current game, do screenshots and disabling the back and home buttons.
