  • Tweak the S Pen features


These five things you should do first with your Galaxy Note 10 and 10+. Let's find out how you can reach to the above features.

1. Side key for the power button, camera, and Bixby Configuration

Note 10 and 10+ don't have dedicated Bixby button like the previous flagship models. Which makes power button position a little bit lower and this is a good thing. Now you can easily reach the power button even when you are holding the phone with one hand only.

To use Bixby button you need some extra configuration multiple functions.

How to setup Bixby Button?

Go to the "Settings» Advanced features» side key. The default setting launches the camera app on double press on the side button.

However, Samsung Galaxy Note has a multiple function configuration feature which allows you to configure double-tap launch action to launch Bixby or any other app.

It has multiple options to choose, 1 Sake Bixby, or 2 Launch the power off the menu. They separately added press and hold behavior settings which you can configure as per your need.

3 Choose gestures or standard navigation buttons


Android Central confirmed that Samsung's gesture navigation system best gesture system.

It gives the best experience to the users and enabling the gesture action removes the static navigation bar from the bottom of the screen.  I found it similarly like Apple's iPhone XR gesture option.

Go to the "Display" and then "Navigation bar" you'll find all of the options there.

Turning off features you don't like, enhances the phone speed and performance. I know Galaxy 10 & 10+ already have the best configuration, but to decrease annoying feature load, you can turn off them, and you can always turn it on again later if you change your mind.

Some features you can turn off by using the search option in the settings. Otherwise, open the app or feature areas look for settings gear icons; there will probably be an option to turn it off, or ON features, you don't want entirely.
