When you receive a call from a number that is not in your address book, the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge can check to see if that phone number is suspected of being a spammer or even a fraud-related number, and what the risk level is. Depending on that analysis, you can choose whether to block or report the number.
Display scaling lets you optimize the DPI (Dots Per Inch) settings of your phone's display. You can either choose to stay as Standard or change to Condensed. Condensing your display lets you view more content on the screen at one time with smaller icons, controls, and text.
With Cross App, you can use apps from within certain other apps. For example, while chatting with a friend in the Messages app, you can access photos and videos and share them, or open a URL and check out a web page, all without exiting the messenger first.
Cross App is automatically integrated with the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. When using the Messages app, just click on the paperclip icon on the left of the Enter message panel. That gives you the choice of Camera, Gallery or Other. Camera lets you take photos or record video and send it directly to the person you are chatting with. Gallery lets you select photos and videos saved on your device. Other offers a range of apps, including Audio, Voice recorder, Memo and more.
The Pop-up View otherwise known as Floating is similar to Split Screen except that the app you choose will float above everything else on your screen.
There are apps for hiding sensitive files or photos on any Android device however the Galaxy S7 has this feature built-in. Just go to Settings > Privacy and safety > Private mode to enable it.
Just like with Private mode, there are plenty of apps for sending a quick emergency message to a contact when in neeed however the built-in functionality of Samsung’s Send SOS messages feature really tops them all. Head to Settings > Privacy and safety > Send SOS messages to enable this feature.
After you assign a contact to receive your emergency message, all you have to do is tap the power button three times in quick succession to send your SOS. You can also have the device take pictures and send them with the message and record audio of the situation. It’s not a perfect safety solution, but it’s more than other phones offer.
Game Tools is a tiny floating button that hides on the side of your screen while you’re playing any game. You can tap it at any time to access relevant settings, including turning off alerts during the game, locking the Recents and Back keys, minimizing the game, taking a screenshot or recording your session.
Pinning stops notifications from all other apps, prevents you from accessing the notification shade, and prevents you from switching apps. You’re really stuck in a single app. This feature is most useful if you plan on handing your device over to someone you don’t completely trust, like a toddler. You exit by pressing and holding the Recents and Back keys at the same time. To really ensure that it stays locked, you can require a PIN, pattern, or password to leave the pinned app.
Go to Settings > Lock screen and security > Other security settings > Pin windows to enable this feature. You can then open any app, press the Recents key, swipe up to push the list of recent apps upward, and then select the light blue Pin icon in the bottom right corner of the app.
