When we buy a new phone, it comes with default settings. But by changing these settings, you can personalize your phone, keep it away from bloatware, make phone payments more convenient, and do many more things with your smartphone. So, here are some settings you can change to get the best out of your Samsung Galaxy S7.


Did you know that while checking out instead of searching for Samsung Pay, you can access the app from anywhere? Firstly, enable Simple Pay within the app. Now open Samsung Pay, tap on More. Go to Settings and then Smart Pay. For quick access, turn on access to the app from the home screen or lock screen. You can even start the app when your Samsung Galaxy S7’s screen is off.

You can also get rid of some of the unwanted apps by removing them from your home screen and app drawer. How do you do that? Go to Edit > App Drawer > Tap on “-” Now choose turn off or uninstall whichever option is available.

Do you love your Samsung Galaxy S7 camera? Then you will love its different modes too as they will help you create animated GIFs and also improve the quality of your pictures. To do so, go to the camera app and tap on the Mode button. You will get a big list of modes. Install them and experiment. These modes will allow you to easily create hyper lapse videos and also take better food pictures.

For quick access of apps you use the most, bring them to your lock screen. To do that, go to Settings > Lock screen and security > Info and app shortcuts > App shortcuts. Now here select the apps you want to create a shortcut for and change the settings accordingly. Remember, you can bring only two apps to the lock screen.

    “basic” for the screen setting is by far the most important to change on the S7. You will be blown away on how much this improves the already incredible S7 display.

    The default screen mode can be set under settings. HIghly recommend and appreciate some other interneter sharing.
