Last weekend, the new flagship smartphone from Samsung, the new and highly-expected Galaxy S8, finally hit stores. According to many experts, it is probably the best smartphone launched in 2017 and even exceeded some expectations, especially after the company’s huge recall of the Note 7 devices and the scandal surrounding it. However, there are a few things people must know if they want to make the best out of their new smartphones.
Some things every user should know
Any user, after powering their phone for the first time, should set up some (if not all) of the measures to unlock the phone. And the Samsung Galaxy S8 offers many of them. Apart from the controversial fingerprint scanner, which the company moved on the back of the phone, in a very inconvenient position, the phone has some other ways of unlocking the phone. For example, the iris and face unlock features. Experts are advising the users to set up all the unlock methods available, for the highest amount of safety possible.
Another problem many users confronted when using the Galaxy S8 is the order of the virtual on-screen buttons. The back button is always in the wrong place, on the right of the phone. Fortunately, the users can switch up their order, because they are no longer physical buttons. You need to go to the Settings app, and then Display and Navigation bar. It is worth mentioning that the user can also set up the edges of the phone’s screen to light up whenever there is a new notification.
Making it fit your taste
Apart from those modifications, you can also change the Galaxy S8’s software interface. It looks rather classical and elegant. However, some people might prefer a more colorful theme. In order to do this, you need to go to the Settings app, and then Wallpapers and Themes.
Samsung Pay is another new and interesting feature. And a new user would do well to activate their account right away. Then, they will need to add a credit card or debit card. The company will even give you some bonuses for being one of the first people to buy a Galaxy S8 smartphone. Those are all very interesting features which a new user should not miss to try. They are useful and very well done.
