Galaxy Note 7 Tips & Tricks

Some of these tips and tricks will be something you’ve known for a long time, while others may be completely new. There are so many features jammed inside this phone that you’ll surely learn a thing or two about the Galaxy Note 7 right here. As we said above, we’ll start with changing a bunch of settings, then get into tips so you can master the new Note. Let’s get started.

Alphabetize the App Tray

One of the first things you probably noticed is the application tray doesn’t show apps in order, especially once you download a bunch from the Google Play Store. Instead, they are out of charge, and new downloads are at the end of the list when they’re probably what you use the most. Thankfully, there’s a way to quickly re-sort them all alphabetically.

Hit the bottom right icon to open the application tray, tap the 3-dot settings button at the top, select “A-Z,” and then tap Save. This will list apps alphabetically, how they should have been from the beginning, and make finding apps easier. The next time you install an aph, you’ll have to do it again because it will go to the back of the list. How frustrating.

Customize the Always-On Display

One of our favorite new features is the Always-On display. Using less than 5% power throughout the day, Note 7 shows helpful information like the time, date, battery life, calendar, incoming notifications, or even a subtle background wallpaper on the screen 24/7. Occasionally, it does move to keep the screen from having “burn-in,” which bothers some. You can turn it off, but we recommend turning this feature on.
