You finally have your Galaxy S10e. All of your contacts are uploaded. You’ve set up a password for your lock screen. You’ve adjusted the settings to your liking, added your favorite apps and given the camera a test-run. Is there anything else you really need to do?
Well, if you want to make the phone absolutely perfect for you, you should follow these three steps right away:
Give It A Makeover
There weren’t a lot of Galaxy S10e colors to choose: Prism Blue, Prism Black, Prism White and Flamingo Pink. Other locations around the world had two extra options of Prism Green and Canary Yellow.
Anyone who is not in love with theirS10e’s color should check these out and see how they can make their phone pop. A 3M vinyl skin in a bold design is the perfect way to protect your device and give it a makeover at the same time. Take a look at some of the eye-catching shades and colors you could have:
- Red Dragon
- Bulletproof Banana
- Blue Carbon
- White Marble
A premium vinyl skin will do more than give your phone a makeover. It will guard the exterior from scratches, scrapes and stubborn smudges. It will make the surface more tactile, so it doesn’t slide off of a tabletop or slip through your fingers — the S10 series is notoriously slick.
Set Up The Fingerprint Reader
One of the first things you should do with your Galaxy S10e is to set up the fingerprint reader as your primary security measure. Someone can find out your lockscreen’s password or unlock gesture, but you can rest assured that they won’t have a mold of your fingerprint. When it comes to security, this is your strongest bet.
Go into your Settings. Then go into the Biometrics and Security, and then tap into Fingerprints. You can set up the reader to recognize up to four of your fingerprints. It makes it easier to unlock, depending on how you’re holding your phone at the moment.
Unlike the rest of the S10 series, the Galaxy S10e has a side-mounted fingerprint reader instead of an ultrasonic in-screen fingerprint scanner. Some users have found that they like this old-fashioned fingerprint sensor better than the scanners on the S10e’s higher-priced counterparts. The only problem with the sensor is that it can be trickier for left-handed users to unlock the screen one-handed.
Get A Better Wallpaper
The Samsung Galaxy S10e is a smartphone that’s gotten a lot of praise for its features, performance and price. It does have one tiny problem that a lot of users don’t like: the almost bezel-less screen has a hole-punch to fit the front-facing camera. It’s not a massive eye-sore, but a lot of users don’t like the look of the little black circle in the corner.
While you can’t get rid of the hole-punch, you can disguise it with a clever wallpaper. Download the app Hidey Hole to get wallpapers sourced from Reddit users to camouflage the camera cut-out. If you’re a big fan of sci-fi, use a wallpaper of C3P0 or a Dalek to cover up the circle. If you love comics, then use one where the hole-punch acts as an eye-patch for Nick Fury or Thor. Whatever your interests, you’re sure to find something that works for you.
Following these steps will make your brand-new phone a perfect fit. It’ll have a bold look with a protective vinyl skin. It will have upgraded security to keep any intruders out of your personal business. And of course, it won’t have that tiny hole-punch messing up your screen. What more could you even ask for?
