Samsung is known for manufacturing feature-rich devices for its consumers. These are supposed to give a better user experience but on the contrary, these tweaks and features may look complex to some users. These features come up with default settings to facilitate users. This approach does help beginners to some extent but not everyone likes to go with the default settings. The good news is, Samsung lets you customize these features as per your liking. Changing these by-default settings isn’t tough.
Add a brightness shortcut
By default, you need two swipes from the top of the screen to access the brightness slider of Galaxy S10 and Note 9. You can make it accessible by pressing down the arrow next to the slider, then toggling show control on top. Now you have to swipe down once to see the brightness toggle.
Customize the home screen
Home screen provides the easiest way to access the apps installed on your device. Due to large display screens, icons are spread out. You can stack more icons vertically by heading to Settings > Display > Home screen, then tapping Home Screen Grid. You can also customize your master apps list, which is accessible by swiping up from the home screen. By default, you can arrange the apps in any order by long-pressing, then dragging them around. If you would rather sort the apps alphabetically, tap the three dots to the right of the search bar, select sort, then choose Alphabetical order.
Turn off Wi-Fi network notifications
Android phones have this tendency to show notification for the every open wireless network around you. This may seem like a security risk if your phone switch to an open network. Turn off these notifications by going into to Settings > connections, then select Wi-Fi. On the next screen, click on Advanced, then turn off the toggle for Network Notification.
