Samsung Galaxy S8 launched with ambitious performance, a gorgeous edge-to-edge curved screen, a beefed-up front-facing camera, a top-of-the-line processor, and a new virtual assistant powered by artificial intelligence. But like many outstanding devices, to find every feature of them is not easy. In this sense, I would like to present the most useful tips and tricks for you.
Bixby, Samsung’s new AI-powered assistant, is a tap away from every screen. The Galaxy S8 has a dedicated Bixby button that will eventually trigger actions like sending a photo to a friend and casting a video to a smart TV. Bixby Home consists of cards highlighting the weather forecast, breaking news, and more. But it’s more than just an organizer. Home learns your preferences and habits over time — if you typically call a loved one after work, for instance, it’ll serve up contact info at the appropriate time each day.
Use two Bluetooth headsets at once
There must be some moments that you want to share the beautiful melody with your friends. With wireless Bluetooth headsets on hand, you can certainly realize it. Pair the two Bluetooth devices by heading to Settings > Bluetooth. Switch Bluetooth on if it isn’t already, and select the headphones from the list. Then, follow the instructions on screen to pair them with your phone.
Use rapid charging
Designed with Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 4.0 technology, Galaxy S8 is allowed to juice up to five hours in just five minutes of charging, or 50 percent in 15 minutes. All you need is to head to Settings > Battery, and look for the Fast charger section. Once you’ve found it, switch the toggle to the “on” position. By doing that, you’ll see a message in the Galaxy S8’s notification window when you make a charge.
To view two apps at the same time, you can hit the recent apps button, find the app you want and hit the icon looking like two boxes at the top of that app card. The app will occupy the top half of the screen. You can select the app freely and change the size of each app by pressing the blue line in the center and dragging it up or down.
You can take a screen shot simply by pressing the volume down and standby buttons at the same time. If you don’t want to press the buttons to take a screenshot, head into settings > advanced features > and turn on palm swipe to capture. This saves you having to press two buttons at once. Furthermore, you can also try a gif capture from the screen. Enable the smart select edge panel. Then, once your video is on the display, you can swipe to smart select from the edge and select animation. A preview window will appear which will let you record video to create a gif.
Personally speaking, the above tips and tricks are much worthy to be acknowledged. If you want to get further information, you can also refer to the tips given by Chris Hall to get a detailed review.
