And some of you probably even got upset by comparing the brightness of the flashlight on your flagship Galaxy S20/S10/S9 to another phone. Don’t be upset! Because You Samsung Galaxy phone has a setting most of you are unaware of which allows to increase the flashlight brightness. Don’t worry, you don’t need to install any third-party apps.
Screenshot toolbar is an extremely useful feature of Samsung smartphones for those users who often edit screenshots or like to share them immediately after they are created. The toolbar offers such options as scroll down the screen to take the screenshot of the full page, edit the image (crop it, draw on it or highlight something), share the screenshot or open it in one of the installed apps like Gallery or Google Photos. The only downside of the screenshot toolbar is that you have to wait for some seconds until it disappears before you will be able to take another screenshot.
So, if you are faced with the task of creating as many screenshots as possible per unit of time, then it makes sense to disable the toolbar. Personally, I prefer to first create all the screenshots that I need, and only then open my favorite app to edit these screenshots — Google Photos.
The longer Android runs without rebooting, the greater the likelihood of glitches and crashes. This is not about a particular phone model, this applies to any operating system. 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. A third-party applications are being developed by various developers. Some of them are more successful, others are less and cause various problems and glitches. We often advise restarting your Android device if there are any problems that cannot be solved in any way. Here is how to set up scheduled auto restarts on Samsung Galaxy S20, S10 and similar devices that run OneUI 2.
Always On Display (AOD) is a cool feature on Samsung Galaxy phones with AMOLED displays. It used to show a brief information on the screen without consuming much energy. Only a small part of LEDs are lit while the majority is off. By default, the brightness of Always on display is set to “auto” on Galaxy S20. But you may want to use the permanent (unchangeable) level and adjust it to your liking to make your AOD look even more stunning. In this guide we will show how to change the brightness of your Galaxy S20 Always On Display on Android 10 with One UI 2.1 and 2.0.
Some users prefer when incoming call is displayed in a small pop-up window at the top of the screen that allows to continue reading, typing or browsing. But other Galaxy owners prefer to always see the incoming call in the full screen mode. While displaying incoming calls in a pop-up is designed to not distract users when they use apps, I often switch to it as I pull out my Galaxy S20 from my pocket by accidentally touching the screen when I receive a call. Thus, for those who hates pop-up mode here is how to always display incoming calls in full screen on Galaxy S20, S10, S9 and other Galaxy models with One UI 2.0 and 2.1.
In this guide we will explain how to put an app to sleep if you are not using it with the purpose of saving battery charge. Be noted, that the app put to sleep will likely be unable to send you notification. This means that once you’ve done it, the app will stop its background activity and therefore you will get its notifications and updates only when you manually open that application (put in the foreground). So, be careful with putting to sleep messengers and other interactive apps that you want to be able to deliver you notifications on time.
