Samsung ships its Galaxy phones with its own user interface called One UI. This offers many improvements compared to pure Android, but is not optimally configured ex works. We’ll tell you below which options you should definitely adjust.
Disable accidental touch protection
If your Galaxy cell phone is in your pocket without a lock, an algorithm should recognize this and prevent you from accidentally making calls by touching it. However, the protection against accidental touches often causes problems when unlocking the cell phone because it is set too sensitively. But that can be fixed. How? We explain that to you in the linked instructions.
Block spam calls
Spam calls are increasing. For example, many of you are currently receiving calls from the Federal Police Department. What you may not know is that your Galaxy cell phone offers integrated spam protection with Smart Call, but it is deactivated ex works. We’ll tell you how to turn on Smart Call.
Empty the recycle bin or switch off directly
The memory of your Galaxy cell phone is full, you then delete numerous pictures – but you still don’t get the storage space back? The recordings are probably still in the recycle bin. We’ll tell you how you empty it on Galaxy phones or turn it off directly.
Disable Samsung Free
Samsung Free is a separate start screen that bundles Samsung news and its own offers. You can reach it with a swipe to the left. If you don’t use the area, you can switch it off: This is how you deactivate Samsung Free.
Enable clipboard warning
The clipboard can be a potential security vulnerability on Android smartphones. Samsung offers you a warning function on newer devices that alerts you as soon as the clipboard is accessed, so you can activate the clipboard warning.
