45 Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Tips & Tricks



Use the Galaxy S7 for Internet

Use the Galaxy S7 for Internet

Our phones can be used for internet just like our home WiFi, internet access at Starbucks or at a hotel with a feature called a Hotspot. This is in settings, but typically a user needs to have hotspot support from their carrier. It simple shares the phones internet with nearby computers, laptops, or a tablet. Great for using a tablet in the car, or while at the park.

Start by going into settings > Mobile Hotspot & tethering > Tap Mobile hotspot and turn it on. It checks that it can be used with your carrier data plan, then begins sharing your phones connection. Users can name this, set their own password. Then find that WiFi name on a tablet just like any other wireless internet, put in a password, and browse the web on a tablet from your Galaxy S7 internet connection. If that makes sense. See the photo above for more details, or this old but still relevant how to guide.

    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.
