Recently bought the Samsung Galaxy On7 Prime? Pondering what to do with it, other than playing games or watching movies? Well, it's a Samsung device and obviously, it has many tricks up its sleeves even though it's a budget phone.
And keeping these many features in mind, we have rounded up the coolest Samsung Galaxy On7 Prime tips and tricks.
If you have owned a Samsung phone earlier, you must already know a few of these. But why take the chance and miss out on the cool ones, right? Let's jump straight in!
Anyway, before that, I tried something simple — app lockers. While previously one had to rely on third-party apps, the process has been made simpler now by the built-in app locker. The Galaxy On7 Prime comes with a few handy options to do that. The Lock and Mask option is one of them.
Using this, not only can you hide apps from the app drawer but can also lock the important ones.
Cool Tip: If you want the ultimate level of security of your files and pictures, you can try out Secure Folder.
2. Get the List of Inactive Apps
The Developer options in Android phones hide a plethora of hidden features. One such option is Inactive Apps. Though its main function is to stop its background activities, it can be used to filter those apps, that you haven't used in recent times.
This feature picks up apps that haven't been used for around two weeks. Given that the phone storage fills up pretty quickly, this mode will help you in kicking out the unused apps from your smartphone.
To activate the Developer option, head over to Settings > About Phone > Software information and tap on the Build number seven times. Once done, open it and search for Inactive Apps.
Thanks to Android Nougat, managing notifications is easier now. The apps that send notifications every few hours can be silenced once and for all. What's more, you can even prioritize the notifications for your favorite apps.
Just left swipe on a notification and hit the cog icon. Once done, choose from the three options that cater most to your need.
To prioritize notifications, tap on the Notification option in App settings and toggle the Set as priority switch to On.
Remember those huge tiles on Windows phones? These tiles not only gave the phone a unique look but also made our work easier. Thankfully, a similar look can be fetched on your Galaxy On7 Prime and it's made possible by the Easy Mode.
This mode gives the home screen icons a tiled look and also lets you add your favorite contacts to your home screen. However, the screen zoom is maximized in this mode. So, the normal text will also appear bigger.
7. Listen to Songs in All Their Glory
Often when listening to songs in office, I tend to keep one of the earplugs unplugged for obvious reasons. As useful as it is, this style has one major flaw, I can't listen to my favorite songs in all its glory. That's when the Sound Balance mode on your On7 Prime comes in handy.
Here, you can channel the audio to your preferred side. To enable it, hover to Accessibility settings > Hearing.
Alternatively, you can also enable the Mono audio mode. This nifty option switches the audio from stereo to mono mode and thus eases the experience of listening through one ear.
How about muting calls with just a flip? The Easy mute option under Advanced features lets you mute a call when you turn the phone face down. Yes, no more fumbling for the volume down button now. Savvy, Right?
9. Locate Your Misplaced Phone
A phone in silent mode can be a real pain to locate. Worry not, Samsung's nifty Find my Mobile feature is there for your assistance. It'll take care of locating your device and even lets you unlock it remotely.
For this, head over to Samsung’s Find My Mobile service and sign in using your Samsung credentials. Once done, you'll be taken to a new page with your device’s location shown on a map.
