Plenty of people have been super excited to see the new Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ phablet, bringing phablet quality with a curved screen display, quickly making it one of the hottest properties on the tech market.
But having arrived so quickly onto the market and with such excitement, many of its users mightn’t have figured out all of the features that come along with the phone. So, with that in mind, we thought we’d take a look at five of the hidden features that are included with the Galaxy S6 Edge+, so with no further ado let’s get started!
Activated by default, this feature is often not known about by many S6 Edge+ users, especially if they haven’t read the manual which comes with the handset.
The feature allows you to access the camera on the Edge+ at the press of a single button, rather than forcing you to navigate several screens to get to it. In fact, all you need to do to use it is a simple double tap of the home button at the bottom of the phone, and in less than one second, your camera will be free to use!
To enable Quick Camera Launch (if it’s not already), go to Settings > Camera > Quick Launch.
Never again will you be missing out on those time sensitive snaps!
Packing one of the biggest displays on the market, being able to multitask is a vital feature. A simple way to do this on the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ is by resizing apps, letting you see multiple details on your display without being too much hassle.
Of course, not many Samsung users actually know how to do this, but it’s actually incredibly simple.
To resize an app, simply hold and drag from the top right of an app and choose the size of the app by dragging and dropping.
You can even do this with multiple apps, so you needn’t worry about switching between them if you do want access to some more information.
If you’re thinking of being a bit more technical with your Galaxy S6 Edge+ handset, then Developer Options are the way to go!
Developer Options allow the user to alter plenty of extra features as well as controlling how the phone works behind the scenes in certain circumstances. However, when editing these options, we always recommend erring on the side of caution, so don’t play with these if you’re not sure what you’re doing.
To access Developer Options go to Settings > About Device > Tap Build Number seven times > Developer Options.
You can do your Edge+ some good with these settings, but equally they can also mess with your phones performance as well, so we would always recommend being careful with these kinds of changes.
Bluetooth technology is now a common part of smartphone accessories, connecting our devices to one another wirelessly without you needing a technical degree to handle it. The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ works with this technology on an unprecedented level, letting you answer the phone with minimal effort!
Auto Bluetooth answering does what it says on the tin really, automatically answering calls when you have a Bluetooth device connected. So if you’re in the car or listening to music, you needn’t break your pace to answer your phone.
To activate Auto Bluetooth Answering you should go to Phone > More > Settings > Automatic Answering.
Now you’ll never have to struggle with answering the call, regardless of what you’re up to!
Which Samsung phone is the best? The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge or the S6 Edge+?
If things are all a bit too confusing with your new smartphone, then Easy Mode could be the way to go on the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+.
Easy Mode gives you a much simpler user interface to work with should you need one, so if you’re desperate to simplify things, you needn’t overlook the S6 Edge+.
To activate Easy Mode, you need to go to Settings > Easy Mode.
From here on in, you’ll be left only with the most necessary apps on your home screen, making it much easier to select which one meets your needs. If you simply need to get access to the most useful of features without being flooded with other apps, this is the way to go!
