Samsung Galaxy Labs Hides App Drawer & Features Quick Dial on S7 Smart Phone



Samsung Galaxy Labs Features

Samsung has silently offered two hidden options under their new “Galaxy Labs” option thats available under the Advanced features of the Samsung Galaxy S7 & the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. If you have got your hands on one of these devices you should take a look at all the advanced options and features offered in this phone. While going through these options we ended up finding the “Galaxy Labs” thats a section featuring the experimental functions that have a clear warning – “These may be added, modified, or removed without notice”.

Lets talk about these options one by one in detail.

  • Show all apps on home screen: This is an option that’s not really going to offer something special but it quickly shows all your applications on the home screen following which there’s no App Drawer. We had earlier heard rumors that the Android N may not feature the App Drawer & this option is somewhat close to what was rumoured. Once you enable this all the applications would move to the home screen in the order of how they were installed and there’s no other customization offered. If you disable this option a message would appear stating “A separate Apps screen will be created so that you can easily find your most important apps via the Apps icon on the home screen. Any customizations you have previously made to the home screen will be discarded.

  • Quick Dial: This is an option that allows you to simple make a call with long press of the home key and a name. Once enabled it will be used instead of the Google App when you press and hold the Home Key. We gave this feature a try, and looks like its powered with the Samsung’s own proprietary S-Voice function and it could not call the person we intended to, following which threw an error on the screen as shown below.

Do make a note that this could be Samsung’s beginning of offering developer options the way Google offers under its settings and we could be expecting more options soon under this menu. If you have this Phone, keep an eye on all the options and let us know if you find any other similar feature on your Galaxy device. Today we also did a Comparison of the Nexus 6P Vs Galaxy S7 Edge along with an interesting story on the Samsung Galaxy S7 Mini that’s soon expected to launch.
