Note 7 tips & tricks

Head over to the Settings app on your Note 7, open the “Games” menu and browse around the Game Tools section. Once you have enabled Game Tools, a small orange button will pop-up every time you open a game. With the help of these tools, you can disable the capacitive keys, record a game, take screenshots and a lot more.

Make the most out of Edge screen

If you missed having a double-edged screen in the Note 5 last year, Samsung has made up for it in a huge way. One of the most impressive Note 7 tips & tricks is the Edge app shortcuts that make every inch of its massive display useful.

Open up Settings->Display->Edge screen and the first option will be able to view is the Edge panels. After enabling the Edge panel, you can add all sorts of shortcuts (weather, calendar, torch, compass and more) and access them with a single swipe. Moreover, you can also change the position, size and transparency of the Edge apps with the “Handle” settings.

Taking notes any time of the day

The screen off memo feature was highly popular among Note 5 users, and we are glad to see it in the latest flagship phablet as well. With the help of this neat feature, you can always have a notepad handy without having to open the app every time.

Robust security with your eyes

Any Note 7 tips & tricks would be incomplete without the honourable mention of its state-of-the-art Iris scanner. Besides being incredibly accurate, the iris scanning technology on the Note 7 works incredibly fast every time you use it.

By simply holding up the Note 7 and looking straight at the front camera of the device, you can show off the best of mobile security. However, with the convenience of having an even faster fingerprint scanner right next to your thumb, you can leave Iris scanning for banking apps.
