Launched earlier this year, the Samsung Galaxy S22, S22+, and S22 Ultra are the best Galaxy smartphones ever. The device was launched with Android 12-based One UI 4.1 OS, thus providing the most advanced features for the users to get the most out of their phone.
Let’s go over some of the Samsung Galaxy S22 series tips and tricks that will make your phone use better.
Link to Windows
One of the most useful features included in the Galaxy S22 series smartphones is a Link to Windows. It easily transfers your phone’s information, files, photos, and even apps to your Windows computer. This means you will not need to mail Bring your files and photos to your PC, and you can have all the important information on your phone right on your desktop. Interestingly, you can use this capability to mirror your Galaxy phone’s screen to your computer, giving you full access to all of your mobile apps on your computer
To make this option available on your phone, go to Settings > Advanced Features > Toggle on “Link to Windows”. Then select “Link your phone and PC”. Now you can use your phone to scan the QR code on your PC. You can also log in using your Microsoft account as an alternative. To link the devices, all you need to do is follow the on-screen instructions.
Control processing speeds
As we mentioned, the new Galaxy flagships are all about giving consumers flexibility and allowing them to use the phone in any way they want. The Samsung Galaxy S22 series smartphones give you the option to change the processor speed to balance speed with battery and cooling efficiency. By default, this speed is set to “optimized” to achieve this.
However, you can select the “High” or “Max” settings if you’re using a program that requires a bit more and you need to push these limits. This means you’ll never have to sacrifice performance again. If you want to explore these options, go to Settings > Battery & device care > Display. ‘Battery’ > ‘More battery settings’ > ‘Processing speed’ should be selected.
Put apps to sleep
Some background apps can be annoying and quietly reduce your smartphone’s battery life without your knowledge. The Samsung Galaxy S22 series gives users the option to categorize apps into buckets labeled “Sleeping Apps,” “Deep Sleeping Apps,” and “Never Sleeping Apps” to prevent this from happening.
The apps that need to be placed in each of these categories can be selected manually. Only “sleeping apps” will run in the background, and updates and notifications may be delayed. So-called “deep sleeping apps” will only use up resources when you open them and will never work in the background. Lastly, “Never Sleeping Apps” will always run in the background unless you force-close them, bypassing any restrictions placed on the other two settings. These apps will provide you with instant notifications and updates.
Go to Settings > Battery and device care > Background usage limits to access these options. You also have the choice to put inactive apps to sleep in this section.
