We restart Windows computers, laptops, and Android is no exception in this regard. How often the Android operating system starts to glitch, depends not only on it itself, but it depends on what applications are installed on the phone or tablet and how many of them.

In their new Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+ Samsung suggests to use the side key as Bixby on long press.

And you are supposed to tap the power icon in the pull-down shade if you are eager to power off or reboot your phone.
You can’t remap the short-press actions on Note 10 because they are hard-coded but the long-press and double press functions can be easily changed in the Settings without using any third-party apps. And here is how.Continue reading
