Samsung Galaxy S8 Hidden Features, Tips And Tricks
The Samsung Galaxy S8 has been launched recently. Going by its premium design and impressive new features, running on the Android Nougat and coupled with Samsung's very own TouchWhiz, it isn't beyond a doubt that the Galaxy S8 is teaming with cool features.
Enjoy Split Screen Multitasking
To open apps in split screen view, first, you need to hit the "Recents" button on the soft keys at the bottom part of the screen, now tap the multitasking tab on your already open apps (it's the one that looks like two rectangles atop each other) and it will open them in a compressed half screen view. Once the app is open, you can drag to resize or back to a full-screen view.
Take A Screenshot
Without the physical home button, screenshots are handled a little differently on the S8. The simplest way to take a screenshot is to press the power and volume down keys at the same time.
Make Screen Unlocks Fun
You can add a wide range of iris scanner previews to your lock screen and replace those boring dull-eye aligning circles with graphics which are a little more entertaining. To access, go to Settings, then Lock screen and security, next go to Iris Scanner and tap Preview screen mask.
Protect Your Eyes With Blue Light Filter
If you're in the habit of using your smartphone at night, it's a good idea to turn on Samsung's "blue light filter." This changes the color of the display to reduce blue light, this will avoid eye strain and help you to sleep better. Go to Settings, then Display and tap Blue light filter to change the times and the strength of the effect.
Color-coded Call alerts
If your phone is face down, there is an option to have the edges light up when there's an incoming call. This is ideal for meetings because your device will get your attention if there's an incoming call without you needing vibration or showing everyone who is calling. To enable this feature, go to Settings, then Display, next click Edge screen and turn on "Edge lighting".
Give Your Phone A Rinse
Like the prev-gen Galaxy series, the Galaxy S8 is IP68-rated, which means it's water-resistant and can be dunked in water to a depth of 1.5 meters for up to 30 minutes. So it will survive a dip in the sink or down the loo, and it won't break if you pour a drink over it, however, it isn't advisable to take it to swimming.
