Android phones come with great features, and the S4 hasn’t exactly been left behind. If you’re a new S4 user, you might not exactly be a pro at navigating through the various features and options available. In this article, we look at some handy Samsung Galaxy S4 tips and tricks that anyone could make use of.

Multi Windows

Most people know little about this feature in the Samsung S4. The feature allows you to run any two apps at the same time, where your screen shows these two apps on the right and the left side. In short, the apps are shown on the same screen in two parts. You will need to press and then hold the Back button till there is a white tray which will be formed on the left side. You will then drag the app to the center for launching on the screen. Then you drag your second app to the right or the left side of the apps that’s already running.

Checking on Battery Power

To get to know the power on your battery every time, you will just need to check from the Settings. Consequently, navigate to My Device and lastly to Display where you will see the battery display percentage.
