From the time the Samsung Galaxy S7 (and S7 Edge) hit the smartphone market in
2016, they were described as being superior handsets with an incredible
design. Finally, there was a pair of smartphones that delivered top line
features without sacrificing an aspect of design. These two devices
had the best sensors for the cameras, an expandable micro SD card
storage, and resistance to water and dust.
Samsung also included some handy software tricks that enhance the overall experience of users. Below are some tips that you can use to make better
use of these powerful devices.
1. Get better audio quality with Adapt Sound
This is an incredible feature on the S7, but one that’s hidden from
most users. It allows you to custom set your audio experience so
that you get better sound quality even with the most average
headphones it works just like Dolby Audio . Navigate to “ Sounds and vibration ” from Settings , then
choose ‘ Sound quality and effects ’ option. From here, select ‘ Adapt
Sound ’ then ‘ Personalized sound ’. You’ll be prompted to plug in your
headphones and find a quiet place so that Adapt Sound can start
configuring for you.
2. Go Parallax with Wallpaper Motion Effect
Apple was the first company to come up with the Parallax effect for
their iOS 7 back in 2013. Since then, a lot of Android apps have
Copied it. But why download an app when your smartphone comes
packed with this functionality? Activate Wallpaper Motion Effect on
your S7 by long-pressing your home screen, then choose Wallpapers .
Toggle the Wallpaper Motion Effect on so that you enjoy awesome
parallax effect on your device screen.
3. Capture scrolling screenshots
The S7 is not the first Samsung handset to be able to capture
scrolling screenshots. Users have been able to do so since the Galaxy
Note 5. This is a completely ingenious method to capture the screen
in its entirety, more so when you’re scanning through a lengthy article
on your screen.
To capture a scrolling screenshot, you need to press
and hold the power and home button (at the same time). A regular
screenshot will automatically be captured. Once that’s done, you’ll get
a ‘ + ’ icon below prompting you to Capture more. Tap on this button to
activate the screen scroll. Your device will stitch everything together
into a continuous image.
4. Log into sites using your fingerprint
The Galaxy S7 comes equipped with a pretty fast (actually faster than
Chrome) browser that also features fingerprint authentication for
websites that need a password. So rather than having to enter your
password each time you need to log into some websites
or some other serious website, all you need to do is put your finger on
the fingerprint scanner. You can easily set up this feature by
navigating to Settings>Lock screen and security>Fingerprints .
Activate the ‘Web Sign-in’ toggle.
5. Leverage the Auto-Brightness
Most Android users actually prefer to turn off the pesky auto-
brightness configuration. This setting seems to work incorrectly and
is often a waste of battery time. But the auto-brightness feature on
the Samsung Galaxy S7 is way smarter!
Your phone automatically
adjusts to ambient light conditions that you may or may not want to
manually set. The important thing though is that the S7 auto-
brightness feature works very correctly and conveniently, so you don’t
have to be afraid of having it enabled. Simply swipe down from the top
of the screen and check the Auto box next to the brightness slider .
6. Take advantage of the Advanced features
There are multiple advanced features on the Samsung Galaxy S7 that
you can take advantage to make better use of your smartphone.
Simply navigate to Settings , then Advanced features . All these
features can come in handy one way or the other. For instance, when
you enable ‘ One-handed operation’, the phone adjusts the size of the
screen so that you have an easier time using apps such as the
calculator and keyboard with one hand.
Use the tips above to make better use of your powerful
Samsung S7 handset.
