I've been using the Galaxy Note 10+ for some time as my daily driver. I love it, but like any phone it loses its shine after a while. However, because it is an Android phone, there is always a way to add new features and functionality to the UI.
The following five adaptation ideas are my latest favorite findings. You are not your usual joke. "Hit a custom launcher and icon pack on it." Optimizations, they are a bit different. Just try one out and play it safe, or do all five and go wild. Personally, I rock today 2, 3, 4, and 5.
# 1: Move Your Quick Settings Down
Bottom Quick Settings moves your entire Quick Settings menu to the bottom of the screen. Swipe from bottom to top to switch between Wi-Fi, location, Bluetooth, and any other tile you can access above. And you do not just have to swipe from the bottom. If you prefer full screen gestures, you can move the trigger area to the left or right edge.
# 2: Get a Swipe-Up App Drawer  If you pay for the premium version of Bottom Quick Settings, you can download the app in transform an app drawer that can be accessed from any screen. This is similar to the gestures of Android 10 on the Pixel (more on that later). Read the instructions below to find out how to achieve this.
Note 10+ comes with navigation gestures from Samsung, the new gestures in Android 10 are only better . An app called Fluid Navigation Gestures, with proper configuration, can perfectly reproduce these gestures on the Note 10+.
To set them up in the Android 10 style, you must set the Quick Swipe action for all three dots at the bottom to open the splash screen. Then set the Swipe & Hold actions to Recent Apps. Set the Quick Swipe action for the left and right margins to return, and then send an ADB command to your phone to hide the existing navigation bar. Further help can be found in the following instructions.
So this year, Samsung The notification LED was scrapped on both the Galaxy S10 and the Galaxy Note 10. If you miss this feature, Samsung has added a way to get similar features with a display around the camera's hole.
First, open Galaxy Apps and make sure the app is up-to-date. Use it to install Edge Lighting +, and then open the applet. Select "Display" in the settings and then "Edge Screen". Check the box next to "Edge lighting," tap the words "Edge lighting," and choose "Edge lighting style." Select Effect and choose "Black Hole" and then "Done."
This will cause the "edge lighting" to act as the notification LED. High priority alarms (such as sound and pop-up) will become a light The light will only be displayed for a short period of time and then fade out, but as long as you look at your phone, you can continue to watch the alarm sound or vibration.
5. Use a background image that matches your punch.
The Hole Hole Design The design was a controversial decision for Samsung, though it's less noticeable than one Notch (in my opinion) but obstructs part of the screen.
One of the biggest problems I had with the hole is wallpaper A wallpaper that hid the hole in a way that the picture did not disabled, was hard. Then I saw pictures online that took a different approach: instead of trying to hide it, they made it the center of attention.
WallPix offers a variety of wallpapers that use the hole creatively. Whether it's Spider-Man hanging on the hole, or Krillin launching a destructo disk, they use the hole instead of ignoring it. And for those who prefer to hide the hole, some wallpapers explicitly place the hole in a black area, minimizing its appearance. While this does not add extra functionality, it makes viewing the phone much easier.
