When spending a lot of time inside, having the right tools around to keep you productive, active and – last but not least – entertained is key.
While staying active should be a mainstay of everyone’s daily routine, it’s important to enjoy some downtime every now and then and relax with your favorite TV show, game or movie. Read on for some simple tips to making your content-watching and gaming sessions all the more enjoyable.
There’s nothing more satisfying than discovering a new series or film that you love. You can easily enjoy all your favorite Netflix titles directly on your smartphone thanks to the Galaxy line’s signature Infinity Display or Infinity-O Display, along with the powerful performance of your Galaxy device, be it the Galaxy S20 or Galaxy Z Flip. If you’re looking to diversify how you enjoy your favorite content, you can easily switch from your smartphone to your Samsung Smart TV using DeX.
Multitask While You Unwind
Furthermore, in order to multitask while enjoying your favorite YouTube videos, you can harness the multidevice power of Samsung DeX. Just link your phone to your monitor using any USB C-HDMI adapter cable, click on the Samsung DeX prompt in your notification bar and tap 'OK' to enable Samsung DeX mode. Not only can you then resume your favorite content instantly, you can also chat with your friends or browse the internet while watching.
When enjoying your downtime, it’s easy to find yourself relaxing to the point where even basic movements seem superfluous. For those times when you’re too comfortable to manually play or pause the next video in your YouTube queue, you can harness the remote connectivity of the Galaxy Note10’s S Pen to control the YouTube app, even when your device is connected to an external monitor running Samsung DeX. A simple single press of your S Pen will pause or resume a video, a double press will take you to the next video, and by gesturing up or down with the body of the S Pen, you can turn the volume of your content up or down accordingly.
Game the Way You Want
There’s no better feeling than when that ‘victory!’ sign flashes up on your screen, so when developing our mobile devices for you, we always look to provide you with the most enjoyable gaming experiences possible.
The Galaxy S20 series is no exception – you can enjoy remarkable reaction times when partaking in a gaming session thanks to the series’ smooth screen-scrolling and high screen refresh rate. To enjoy the full benefits of the S20 series’ 120Hz display while gaming, just head to Settings > Display > Motion smoothness and then tap on the 120Hz option.
The very latest titles in gaming are bigger and better than ever – so you need a powerful device that is able to keep up to enjoy them on. Along with fast processors, Galaxy Note10 and Galaxy S20 devices feature the AI-powered Game Booster, which monitors how the game runs on your device to automatically adjust phone settings for peak gaming performance, no matter what kind of game you are playing. You can even disable notifications when in-game to ensure your session is as immersive and as distraction-free as possible.
To ensure you never miss another tap, swipe or command prompt when gunning for a winning move mid-game, the Galaxy S20 also comes with an enhanced touch latency of 240Hz1 and immediate Bluetooth audio response so that the title is yours to take when in the final stages of a match or battle.
Additionally, in order to provide you with as many options as possible when looking to relax with a good game, Samsung’s partnership with Microsoft is set to bring you mobile access to leading street racing game Forza Street in the first half of 2020.
From gaming to streaming, your Galaxy device is primed and ready to help you relax and stay entertained while enjoying downtime at home with a wide range of content, performance and functionality options.
1 Touch latency of 240Hz is currently available only on Galaxy S20 series devices.
