Imagine how to conveniently control your smartphone with gestures. you don’t need to take the Samsung GALAXY S4 in your hand to answer the call, you do not need to press the buttons to find out the time, but this is only the beginning. How do you like the unique ability to control your eyes in various applications? Taking pictures with sound and shooting from two cameras at once? A special typing system on the virtual keyboard, an application for controlling home appliances, the Multi Window function, when on one screen you can work with two applications at once. and that’s not all!
Gestures, sight, movement
Briefly in the previous article, we already talked about a number of unique control features of the Samsung GALAXY S4. Recall that one of the most interesting items on the My Device tab is “Motion and Gestures,” and here fiction begins. Relatively speaking, communication with SGS4 for the user goes to a new level. Using gestures, you can call up basic information on a locked device by simply moving your palm over the display and scrolling through the pages with your eyes: the front camera tracks the position of the pupils. when you reach the end of the page in the browser, the page will automatically scroll. It is even possible to accept a call by swiping your palm over the display, while in the settings you can choose to activate hands-free calling. And Samsung GALAXY S4 can dial a number automatically if you look at messages from a subscriber and then bring the smartphone to your ear. We highly recommend thoroughly exploring all these new SGS4 features to speed up and simplify your most familiar activities. We recommend watching our about the special features of SGS4.
Now let’s take a closer look. For example, in a music player using voice commands, you can control playback. “Next”, “Back”, “Pause”, “Play”, you can even decrease or increase the volume. If we talk about gestures, then the list of commands and features is like this:
- A quick look, when the device is locked, you can hold your palm over the sensor (located above the display), the time, date and information about new notifications will appear on the screen
- Non-contact transition, it is possible to scroll a web page without touching the display, you need to hold the palm from the bottom up
- A non-contact overview, switching from image to image, from page to page, or from track to track by moving your palm over the sensor, is very convenient if you are demonstrating a selection of photos or the Samsung GALAXY S4 works like a miniature “boombox” at an office party
- Contactless movement, it is possible to move labels and events of S Planner, holding the icon, you need to “sweep” the current screen with your palm
- Contactless call acceptance; during a call, just swipe your hand over the sensor, in the settings you can choose whether to activate the speakerphone
All these gestures are extremely natural, a habit quickly appears to them, especially when it comes to accepting calls and the “Quick Look” function. At a meeting, you can check the time without picking up the device.
With the help of movements, you can also perform various actions, for example, this is a direct challenge. You look at the contact information, put the phone in your ear, and the call starts. If you left the Samsung GALAXY S4 and then pick it up, the device will vibrate if there are missed calls or messages. In the gallery, you can zoom in or out by moving the unit back or forward. However, the most popular function is to mute the sound during an incoming call, just turn the Samsung GALAXY S4 screen down.
Smart screen function. several features related to the front camera and your look. For example, the display can remain on only while you look at it, the screen orientation changes depending on the angle of view, when watching a, if you look away, playback is paused. Smart scrolling is even possible in a browser or other programs, you look at the bottom of the page, and scrolling below (or above) is automatic.
We recommend that you try all these possibilities and then decide for yourself which ones you especially liked and will be in demand. As practice shows, most often Samsung GALAXY S4 owners use mute during a call, the “Quick Look” function and contactless call acceptance. However, it’s up to you, because in the settings of Samsung GALAXY S4 you can disable or enable the necessary options as you wish.
In short, we already talked about Multi Window in the first article, but it is worth repeating to consolidate skills. The same function is also found on other Samsung devices, for example, GALAXY Note 8.0, a unique thing, but for some reason little is known. Imagine that you want to use a browser and, for example, notes. Immediately copy the necessary information without moving from one application to another. To do this, you need to press and hold the “Return” button (to the right of the Home button), a menu of applications operating in the “Multi Window” mode will appear, you need to select the desired one and drag the shortcut to the launched browser. As you can see, the large display easily allows you to perform such a trick and comfortably use two applications at once. The line with program icons is by default located on the left, you can hide it or put it forward at the right time, it does not interfere with work.
