Tips And Tricks for Samsung Galaxy A5


Samsung has recently launched its new flagships, the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge.
Korean manufacturer does not only release high-end range devices; last December, they introduced, among others, the Galaxy A5. This smartphone did not completely convince us at its launch, especially because of its price, a little too high for a device of this level, but it is nevertheless a quality telephone.
Aside this, it is currently one of the best-selling phones in France. Below you will find tips and tricks for the Galaxy A5 (2016), those small options and hidden functions that can sometimes prove to be very useful.

> If you are used to using TouchWiz and / or if you have a Galaxy S7 of your own, you may already know some of these tricks. It would be difficult for Samsung to create many functions that are only suitable for this phone; it's an investment which may not yield much of a result. The logic is obviously different on these new flagships, the main aim here is for devices to stand out thanks to these special features which include;

1. Sending SOS messages

In the settings, we find this function allows you (as the name implies) to inform your contacts that you are in distress. The concept is very simple: you choose which of your contacts should receive the alert and, once enabled, all you will have to do is quickly press the power button three times to send it. Remember to activate the option (it's disabled by default) and choose which of your contacts should receive the alert.
This system send two messages by default:

In difficult situations, you can quickly warn your loved ones that you are in trouble..
You'll find this function in Privacy / Protection > Send SOS messages. You can also configure the function to send an image or sound. I sincerely hope you will never have to use this SOS function, but it is interesting to have it, just in case…

2. Easy use for the disabled

Do you have problems using your smartphone? Samsung is thinking about those users with disabilities, and is now offering different options to help improve their user experience. Whether you have vision impairments, hearing difficulties or mobility problems, you can find an Accessibility tab in the settings which will make the device easier to use.

You can put the mouse cursor on your display.

The wizard menu (in the Dexterity and interaction menu) is particularly interesting. Once it is activated, you'll see a small blue circle with 4 white squares inside. By pressing on this you can access the quick commands (screenshot, key locking, etc.), as well as the use of a mouse cursor, just like on a computer.

3. A customizable Ultra energy saving mode

All current devices will offer at least one energy saving mode, though most offer several options for users. The Ultra mode is quite hard core; it allows you to connect only via WiFI but will still let you use Bluetooth and GPS. The display changes to the black and white mode so as to economize as much energy possible, which perfectly matches the smartphone’s Super AMOLED display.
The options available in this mode are reduced. Your Home screen disappears, as well as your access to most applications. Only a few still continue be available and will always try resist the invader: the phone, messages, browser, calculator, voice recorder, clock and memo.

4. Alternative to the absence of LED notifications

The LED notification is very practical… With most Android devices you only have to see the LED glow to know if we have received calls or messages. With the A5 (2016), you can forget that. This smartphone does not have this famous LED feature. Do we really have to turn on the display to know if we have notifications pending?

No LED notification but a vibration system is an acceptable alternative.

You can opt for a rather special vibration system: if you have messages / missed calls, your smartphone will vibrate when you pick it up. This is useful - providing your hands are free. You can activate this system from Movements and gestures > Smart Alert. Please note in passing that in this same menu you can associate other movements to an action: mute the sound by covering the display and taking a screenshot with a hand movement.

5. Deactivating the Flipboard

The previous generation of Samsung’s flagship devices, namely the S6 range, already had Flipboard pre-installed. Samsung has other projects in mind for the long term, but for now they are satisfied with imposing Flipboard, which is accessible directly from a simple swipe, with the application taking up the entire display.
The previous generation of Samsung flagships already had Flipboard pre-installed
Users are able to deactivate the application, as Samsung TouchWiz has a dedicated home screen settings shortcut that lets you simply remove Flipboard.

6. Activating the split screen

As its name indicates, this mode allows you to divide your display in two very distinct windows, each associated with an application. This is handy for those who want to do two things at once, like watching a video and taking notes at the same time. As you may be able to guess - the wider the screen, the easier it is to use. As for me, I hardly ever use it on my smartphone but it is a treat to have it on my tablet.

Accessing two windows simultaneously.
You just have to press and hold the multitask button, then select the applications you need.
>Please note that not all applications will be compatible with this system. As an FYI, Android N does plan to offer a window resizing system, which will enable this function to be used on all compatible devices.
Do you know any other tricks that make the strength of this smartphone?

Wine Windows App On Android


Wine is popularly known for Linux and Mac users for opening up the possibility of running Windows software on their preferred operating system. The self - referentially - named software ( Wine Is Not an Emulator ) is due for a new release in the next few weeks, but the hoped - for Windows -on -Android support is not yet there .

That being said, it is in the pipeline. Wine developers are working on integrating the existing CrossOver Android software into the open source Windows API . This will allow for Windows software to run in Android , but it won’ t make it into the up-coming Wine 2.0 , and there still some limitations.

The existing CrossOver Android preview lets you , in the words of developers Codeweavers, “run Windows software on Intel-based Chromebooks and Android tablets ”. “Android devices running on Intel chips?” , you cry. Sure…these are indeed few and far between , but that ’ s not really the point.
Writing on the Wine World News blog, AndrĂ© Hentschel shares a summary of Alexandre Julliard’ s keynote speech at WineConf 2016 from earlier this year:

The Wine developers decided to switch to time -based releases last year, so a code freeze will come soon , and Wine 2 .0 will be released most likely in December or January . The expected main areas of development after 2 .0 will be Aric ’ s HID support, the ongoing DirectX 11 work . Alexandre was hoping to merge the Android code CodeWeavers was working on before 2 .0 , but decided to postpone it because integrating the Java parts into the build system proved to be difficult.

So what now the point in Windows on Android if it is limited to Intel chips devices? While this may not cover many current phones and tablets , it does cater the needs of certain Chromebooks that support Android apps and the potential to run Windows software on Chrome OS could give Chromebooks a much needed boost. But there exist the possibility that Intel chips will become more widely used in phones and tablets; we’re not at that point yet and, coupled with the niche markets that Chromebooks occupy, the delay in bringing Windows on Android support to Wine is understandable.

Windows 10 Tips And Tricks: Playing Games From Store Offline


Active strong internet connection is required so that running Windows Store games on a PC will run smoothly. After hearing out consumer complaints, Microsoft has removed this requirement. Offline play is now available in Windows Store. This request has been pending long enough that the company is no lagging behind its competitors.

Although Microsoft has permitted offline play for Windows Store games, but there still exist some limitations from the main features. For example, the player cannot make any additional purchases, leaderboards will not display game progress, and players cannot showcase their achievements. Until a connection is established, these features will not go off.

On top of that, only a single device can be designated as an 'offline device' at a time. Changing of offline devices is allowed but only thrice a year. A lot of steps are also required to go offline gaming. Most games with campaign mode, however, will be playable offline. Of course, multiplayer games need an internet connection.

How to set a Windows 10 device as designated offline device to play Windows Store games

Firstly, users need to ensure that they're online. The latest Windows updates are also needed to push this through. To check if so, go to Start>Settings>, then select 'Update & security'. Once there, check for Windows Update option. Users can check here if there are pending updates.

Secondly, check out all requirements above, users need to open the Windows Store. A prompt will pop out for signing in, if there wasn't any sign in happening earlier. Once signed in, users need to click on the
'Me' icon on the upper right-hand corner.
Once there, select
Settings, and then Offline Permissions**, this needs to be activated by making sure the toggle is set to 'ON': 'Make this PC the one I use to run some games or apps that have a limited license, even when I'm offline'.
