If you are already launching the new Samsung A53 5G, surely you have taken a look at the configuration to catch up with all the functions available on the mobile.
And although it has many functions that allow you to customize various aspects of the mobile, you can also apply a series of tricks that can make it even easier for you to interact and use its most popular functions.
There are many hidden features and tips to consider, but you can start by taking a look at this selection of tricks for the Samsung Galaxy A53 5G.
Use this tool to edit your screenshots
There are many apps that allow us to edit images from the mobile, or we can simply access the editing options that we find in the Gallery. But if you want something faster and more practical to edit screenshots, you can take this trick into account.
You know, if you want to point to some element of the capture, write a text, draw, etc. You can do all of that without having to go through an app or through the Gallery options. Simply activate the capture toolbar.
An option that you will find in Settings >> Advanced features >> Capture and screen recording << capture toolbar. Once you have this option activated, you will see that when you take a screenshot a toolbar appears. And as you can see in the image, it offers you a series of tools to write, mark, color, erase, among other options.
Scan documents without installing anything
The Camera app on Samsung phones has long had an option that makes it easy to scan documents without installing anything extra.
So if you don’t have any application on your mobile to scan, you can use this option that will save you on more than one occasion. To do this, open the Camera app and tap the gear to go to Settings.
Click on the “Scene Optimizer” option and you will see that there is a hidden function called “Scan documents”. Having this option activated allows the camera to detect when it is a document so that it gives you the options to scan it and adjust the borders.
And the dynamic is simple. Once you focus the camera on the document you will see a yellow “T” appear indicating that it is this scene. And so that it comes out without distortion, you will see that they appear yellow lines indicating the edges of the document and the “Scan” option.
Don’t worry if the edges are not scanned correctly, you can rectify it in the next step. You will see that before saving, it gives you the option to adjust the lines to mark the area you want to scan.
Avoid eyestrain with scheduled sessions
If you spend all day on your mobile, this trick will help you to protect your eyes and avoid visual fatigue. Samsung Galaxy A53 5G has an option that limits the amount of blue light emitted by the screen. Not only can we activate this option at any time, but it also gives us the possibility to schedule sessions.
A practical dynamic that will save you having to activate it manually, and will ensure that you take care of your eyes several hours a day. To use this option just follow these steps:
- Go to Mobile Settings and scroll down to Display
- Click on “View protector” and activate the option
- Now scroll down to “Planning” and customize your options.
As you see in the picture, you have different options to set up these sessions that prevent eyestrain. You can set a custom period, indicating when it starts and ends, or select to activate at sundown.
Or if you want, you can specify that this option is always on. And of course, you can customize the color temperature that will be reflected on the screen.
Create your gallery of filters to use them on your photos
The Samsung Camera app combines a series of filters that allow you to take photos with a special touch without having to go through the post-editing process.
But it also gives you the possibility that create your own filters in a few steps. The idea is that you use a photograph that you like as the basis for your new filter. For example, you can use an Instagram image that you liked for its filters or color editing.
If you want to try it, just follow these steps:
- Open the Camera app and switch to Photo mode
- Now select the magic wand icon you see at the top
- Navigate to “My Filters” and press “+” to choose the image that will serve as the basis for your filter
You will see that it shows you a preview, so if you don’t like it just delete the choice. And if you like the result then you save it as your new filter.
Use the most popular Snapchat filters from the camera
Do you want to use Snapchat filters when you take photos with your Samsung mobile? In the Samsung Galaxy A53 5G you will also find “Fun” mode within the Camera app.
Just by accessing that camera mode you can have Snapchat filters and masks, so you won’t have to take any extra action. Once you choose this mode, you will see all the options that are updated from the Snapchat app. So just choose the effect you want to apply to your face and voila.
Create shortcuts for your favorite apps and tools
Samsung offers different dynamics to have our apps and tools always at hand. But one of the options that ensures that you can always count on shortcuts that take you to the apps or content you need is the Edge Panels.
When you activate this option you will see that you will always have a floating bar on the home screen. To activate it go to Settings >> Display >> Edge Panels. Within the configuration of this option you will see that you can configure what type of content you want it to show.
It can be the apps you use frequently, your contacts, weather information, tools, reminders, etc. So you can combine this kind of information to create a custom shortcut bar on your home screen.
And don’t worry, it won’t steal any screen space, as it will be hidden until you swipe it to the right (or left, depending on your settings) on the slider.
Open the apps of your Samsung mobile on your PC
Do you want to see the photos you have in the mobile gallery on your PC? Or open the apps of your Samsung mobile on your Windows computer? Your Samsung Galaxy A53 makes this task easy for you thanks to one of its built-in features: Windows connection.
You will find this option both in the shortcuts and in the mobile Settings. In this case, you will find it in the Advanced Features << Connecting to Windows section. When you activate this option you will see that the mobile will guide you to follow a series of steps.
Yes, the first time you configure it can be a tedious process, since you will have to configure your mobile and your Windows computer. But once you have configured all the options, it only remains that you activate “Connection to Windows” every time you want to use this dynamic.
