2 screens in 1
If you get a message while you’re streaming the big match, you won’t have to jump out of the action or wait until half-time to reply. With split-screen you can have 2 apps on-the-go at once, and it’s really easy to get set up. Simply tap and hold the first app you want and choose the split-screen option, then do the same again for the next app. And thanks to the cinema widescreen design, you won’t have to squint to see what’s going on. Now you can keep your eyes on the game and stay in the loop.
No more messing around to get fantastic snaps
You know the drill – a cute cat appears on your walk, but the little fella’s run off before you have time to snap a great pic for Insta. Well, now there are a couple of quicker ways to get your photos. Either press and hold the dedicated camera key, or use smart launch, which gets your camera ready for action just by pointing your phone at an object. All you need to do is open up the camera, jump into its settings and pick the smart launch option. Next time you’re on your travels, simply aim your phone – even if it’s in sleep mode or locked – and snap away.
Up your game with Game Enhancer
Pesky notifications distracting you when you’re playing Angry Birds would ruffle anyone’s feathers. But there is a little trick to get round it. The game enhancer lets you tweak all sorts of settings, like turning off notifications, so nothing will get in the way of your gaming. Just open the game enhancer at the same time as the app you want to play. Remember to thank us next time you hit a high score.
Handling calls just got easier
Our last trick will make answering calls (and rejecting them) that little bit simpler. Instead of swiping or tapping the screen, here’s a few easy actions you can use that won’t take a second.
Answering a call – bring the phone up to your ear.
Rejecting a call – give the phone a quick shake.
Turning off the ringer – put the phone face down.
Setting this up is a little on the techy side, so here’s a few easy steps to make things easier:
Phone icon > Menu icon > Settings
Then pick one of the following paths:
If you use a single SIM:
Calls > Smart call handling
If you use dual SIM cards:
Calls > Choose a SIM card > Smart call handling
