5 awesome hidden shortcuts for Samsung Galaxy S5
Like iPhones, the Samsung Galaxy series of handsets is packed full of hidden features and handy shortcuts. Getting familiar with these secret quirks will help you get the most out of your phone and help you impress your friends with your technical wizardry.
1. Turn your phone into a pad
Yes, it’s true, you really can write on you super high tech Samsung Galaxy S5 using old school lead technology.
Simply go to Settings > Display and then enable the ‘Increase Touch Sensitivity’ feature. This will allow you to jot down notes, write phone numbers and even kill time with a few doodles.
2. Tilt your phone to the side to create an instant smart playlist
If you’re listening to a track that you like on your Samsung Galaxy S5 and want to hear more like it, all you need to do is tilt your phone to landscape and your device will automatically create a smart playlist based on the song currently playing.
3. Protect personal information using ‘Private Mode’
If there are certain photos, videos or documents on your smartphone that you want to keep away from prying eyes, you can alter your phone’s setting to ‘Private Mode’ to keep them safe and sound.
4. Keep your phone safe from little hands with ‘Kids Mode’
With their easy to use interfaces, bright colours and fun games, smartphones are a fantastic way to keep energetic kids quiet for an hour or two.
If you give your Samsung Galaxy S5 to your child on a regular basis, it’s well worth getting familiar with ‘Kids Mode’. This will allow you to limit the amount of time your child spends on your device and can even offer them special games to play while they’re logged in.
5. Accept incoming calls without exiting an app
One of the most useful features of the Samsung Galaxy S5 is that is allows users to answer incoming calls without exiting the app they’re using.
This means that, if your mum calls you right in the middle of an exciting game of Candy Crush, you can simply answer the call without losing your place. Go to Settings > Call > Call Notification to enable the feature.
