Samsung strived to keep many of its flagship devices updated for as long as possible in recent years, a strategy that was appreciated by a large number of customers who were happy that they don’t have to purchase the latest models to use some of the new Android features.
Android 10 has come with a series of new features that made it quite popular at release, and it has been available for some time on Samsung Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 10 devices. Below are some of the best Android features that can be enjoyed on the aging flagships.
Improved gesture navigation
Samsung included a gesture navigation system in the previous firmware iteration, but the Android 10 version is considerably better, as Google strived to make gesture navigation more natural and convenient. A few touches were added by Samsung to further refine the experience, which is quite pleasant.
The introduction of the dark mode as a system-wide feature has been a great boon for users and app developers alike since apps can now match the system theme in a dynamic manner.
In some cases, you might want to take a break from the endless wave of notifications that seems to never stop. Focus mode will block all notifications and apps that aren’t placed on a list with exceptions, allowing users to work without being disturbed or tempted to launch a different app that might hamper their productivity.
As the name may suggest, this feature will scan the notifications from the messaging apps and offer suggestions for a quick reply. Samsung disables this feature by default, so you will have to go to the notification settings menu and activate it manually.
Share access to your Wi-Fi network with a QR code
If you want to share your Wi-Fi connection, you can do so quickly by going to the Wi-Fi settings, selecting your network and tapping on QR code that can be scanned easily.
