Samsung video shows you how to customize the Galaxy S9/S9+ screen



One of the many features of the Android operating system is its ability to allow users to customize the display. A video released by Samsung the other day, is a quick guide showing those sporting Samsung's 2018 flagship phones, how to customize the screen on their devices. The models we are referring to are the Samsung Galaxy S9 and the Samsung Galaxy S9+.

The first step, as many Android users know, is to long press on the home screen. This reveals a number of theme options. After tapping on the one that catches your fancy (and be careful, when your fancy is caught it can hurt like hell), make sure you tap on "Apply." 

You can also customize the clock on your home screen. Go to Settings > Lock Screen and security > Clock and FaceWidgets. Click on the Clock style that you like the best. You can also add lists to your Always-On Display by tapping on Reminders to create a list which can be pinned to the display. Once the phone locks, your list shows up on the screen. You'll have no more excuses for forgetting the milk when you go shopping on your way home from the office.

Don't forget to check out the video at the top of this article. Oh, one last thing; don't try this on an Apple iPhone.

How is it not? It's informative, which isn't reallly the case for a few of Phonearena's articles. I appreciate the article as an Galaxy S9 owner.

I think you might need to watch the video, if you think that was all it could do. The Galaxy S9 could do so much more than that, and this video is only showing a small part of the Galaxy S9's options.

What about Apple’s iWork and iLife apps? With these apps you can’t be more productive on an iPhone or iPad. They are also free.

Thanks for showing this to us, Phonearena, it's nice with an informative article actually showing us what my Galaxy S9 can do. It's a nice change from always talking about what is next, when we also should definitely focus on what the smartphones we have can already do.
