45 Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Tips & Tricks



Customize the Home and Lock screen Wallpaper

Customize the Home and Lock screen Wallpaper

One thing that's great about phones is how customizable they can be. Samsung allows owners to change the homescreen background wallpaper, and the lockscreen, separately. Meaning owners can have two different images. Pictures of kids, friends, family, landscape or pets, then something like their husband or favorite sports team as the lockscreen wallpaper. Lets change them from the silly default blue background the phone has out of the box.

Again, push and hold on the main screen and select “Wallpapers” on the bottom left. Now owners can choose from a list of pre-installed background wallpapers, or select “View Gallery” to find a camera photo or downloaded image off the device. Simply find or select the photo you’d like to use, and hit “Set Wallpaper”. As shown below, and we’re all done. We can select to save this as the home screen wallpaper, or the lock screen. Try apps like Zedge for more options and beautiful photos.

    The list was quite helpful to me on my new S6 Edge Plus, thanks.

    Can I also add my spouse to the fingerprint scan? So we’re both able to use the device?

    Google Now gets it wrong so often that it is useless. When did you ever hear anyone use it? Never.

    I normally do not leave comments, but thank you for this helpful list! It informed me on things I didn’t know my phone could do, such as the SOS feature.
