A walk through Samsung's new Galaxy Labs' selection of experimental features


With the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge, Samsung mostly focused on improving hardware properties, but it didn't exactly forget about the software side of the equation, either. And while features such as Game Launcher and Always On Display have received sufficient coverage, there's one pocket of functionality that hasn't: the so-called Galaxy Labs.

Interestingly, Galaxy Labs is a sub-menu available in Settings only on Galaxy S7 and S7 edge units sold outside of the United States. The thinking behind this one remains a mystery to us, but we're sure buyers stateside are at the very least curious as to what exactly they're missing out on. In any case, it should be noted that Samsung is clearly treating these as "experimental" features, and users are invited to provide feedback through simple smile/frown emoticons to indicate their satisfaction with the idea behind them. 

With this disclaimer out of the way, it's time we dive in and explore the only two features available within Galaxy Labs: app drawer removal, and Quick Call. As you're about to see, the "experimental" tag is no joke, as we couldn't actually get the latter to work no matter how many tries we tried.
