there's no day like new phone day and he recently picked up a new Galaxy S 10 then you'll find this a lot to get to grips with which is why we've rounded up the top of six things you need to do with your brand new s10 take a second to subscribe to see more galaxy s 10 videos if you haven't already and will jump in so biometrics that's a fancy way to say face unlock or fingerprint unlock this is part of the s hands initial set up but if you plays through it then you want to make sure everything is in order the s10 series does away with the janky iris scanning unlock of last year's

Phones with a quicker and yes admittedly easier to fool a face unlock system that takes just a few seconds to set up the s ends in screen fingerprint scanner has improved a fair bit with an update that rolled out on launch day so that's worth another look if you were initially frustrated by it it's still not perfect but chances are it's still the main way you're gonna be unlocking this phone so you want to register both your thumbs and index fingers there's an exception of course for all you lucky s10 owners who get a standard capacitive fingerprint scanner on the side of your

Phone oh and if you look under the gestures menu in advanced settings you'll also see that you can enable this neat shortcut for pulling down the notification shade by default Samsung phones stick their on-screen keys for back home and recent apps in the reverse of the order that you'll see on most Android phones if you're coming from something besides another galaxy that can be well slightly jarring so to switch the back to an order that's easier on the brain go to the display menu and scroll down to navigation bar it's worth mentioning here that the

Pressure-sensitive HOME key that we know from the s8 through the note 9 has actually gone away in Samsung's most recent phones that means you can no longer hard press to unlock the phone or to go home from within a full screen app that's unfortunate but perhaps understandable given the way the new in screen fingerprint sensor works however if you want to free up the whole screen you can also enable this full screen gesture navigation system go to navigation bar menu and you can enable it to swipe up from where either the regular on-screen keys would normally be

You could also choose whether you want to see these tiny button guides at the bottom of the display or if you want the entire screen to be dedicated to your content whichever as ten you picked up chances are it wasn't cheap so you'll likely want to protect it with a decent quality case or screen protector we've got some our favorites listed over on the site link down the description below from the sleek and slim to the tough and rugged for something really unique Samsung's led cases are back to and now let you decorate the back of your phone with a

Unique illuminated pattern it's pretty neat as you can see here the s10 series also includes that good old SD card slot and there are a bunch of great deals on cards to add more storage to your s10 from the cheap and cheerful all the way up to the half terabyte superfast Monster Cards for a little bit more cash most of Samsung's optional gesture controls aren't actually enabled by default and that means you need to drill down into the settings to enable them some of them are really useful though like this swiping shortcut to enable one handed mode raised awake is also there

And ideal when you combine it with the s tens face unlock feature there's also a double tap to wake which can be handy when the phone is laid flat and you want to check your notifications you'll find all this stuff under settings advanced features motion and gestures there are a couple of pretty essential settings changes that you want to make to see all your notifications on the Galaxy S ten the first has to do with the status bar by default the Galaxy S ten only shows you the icons of the three most recent notifications to change that you want to go to settings notifications status bar

And change it to show all notifications you can also toggle the battery percentage on or off while you're there and that's the lock screen by default the S 10 only shows you icons on your lock screen which means you have to tap them to expand and see the actual notifications to see the notifications themselves by default go to settings lock screen notifications there are a bunch of options here to control how much detail you see on your lock screen and how that information is displayed but the most important one here is the view style if you want the S tend to

Behave like most other Android phones set this to detailed and once you're done you'll see the full notification text on your lock screen bigsby is of course back on the galaxy s 10 it's actually grown a couple of interesting new features for starters there's bixby routines which lets makes we automate certain tasks based on the time of day location and a ton of other criteria but let's be honest the big sweet key is still a point of contention for a lot of us so if you find you're pressing it accidentally or you just don't use big speed voice all that often

Then you can now fully remap the Bigsby key to do other stuff and you can also set Bixby voice itself to open only when you double tap the key there are a bunch of choices available for a single press the Bixby key load pretty much any Android app or choose one if your existing Bixby routines if you've got these set up obviously a fully fledged programmable button is a lot more useful than just a single Bixby key so those are the first six things to get you started with your brand new Galaxy S 10 show your own tips down the comments to subscribe so you don't miss our future
