The Introduce Yourself Thread

Figured we should have a thread like this.

 

Hi all! I'm AntS. :smiling-face-with-sunglasses:

 

I've worked for Samsung since 2014: starting on t'phone in the frontline Mobile/Tablets Tech Support team, moving on to the Online Shop Support team, then to the Social Media team, where I spent most of my time...  and which is how I ended up here.

 

My hobbies include reading (I might be a bit of a bibliophile), writing, drawing/design, the odd bit of rambling with my Dad, and despairing at the state of modern football (apart from at Lionel Messi - whom I might have a little mancrush on...)

 

I'm a Fantasy, sci-fi, comic book, and Saturday-morning cartoon geek. Love stuff like Lord of The Rings, Game of Thrones, Star Wars, Blade Runner, Doctor Who, Star Trek, Supernatural, Babylon 5. Big fan of Transformers - the original '80s Generation 1 stuff rather than Bayformers.

 

(LOL. And I love that RyanM's introduction thread for me was liked by someone called @Anonymous User. Oosh! :keithlemon: )

Hello @Theresa40
Here is the link to Tips and Tricks on Galaxy S9.

Hope this helps in one way or another 💖

Cheers
Tina

The one I DO NOT use:
Samsung keyboard.
(I use Google Keyboard as it gives me options to run multiple different dictionaries on my keyboard at the same time. If you are multilingual like me and you are using "swipe" a lot for typing, you'll not find any other keyboard as versatile and intuitive as Google GBoard. That's fact.)

The ones I currently LOVE & use most in my S9 Plus are:

* Bixby
(I love to turn it for Alarm, as Bixby spoke up with "Good morning, it's [time] at the moment, it looks like it will be a [weather related ie. Rainy/Sunny] day today... Wear some layers of clothing..." Tada tada.)

* "Screen Sensitivity" to the most sensitive (if you use screen protector like me -- I use Zagg brand -- this is important)

* Biometric lock
(mine set to Eyes recognition, it saves heaps of my time!!!)

* Edge Panels
(mine are: screenshots/animation/pin to screen, weather, device maintenance, Contacts Edge, Apps Edge, Quick Tools)

* Edge lights notifications
* In cam: Slow Motions, blurry background
* Samsung Notes (I can do handwriting on it!!)
* Blue Light Filter on
* Secure folder
