Flex mode is a compelling technique to make the most of the folding mechanism on Samsung’s foldable smartphones. When a Samsung telephone is just partially folded — usually between 75 to 115 levels, its interior show is split into two sections, with the display’s contents shifted to the higher half and app-specific controls occupying the decrease half.

The aim of Flex mode is to make it simpler to make use of your Galaxy Z Fold or Z Flip whereas preserving it on a flat floor. On the Galaxy Z Flip 5, particularly, Flex mode can be utilized as a alternative for the highest half of the display that exhibits the viewfinder inside the Digicam app, whereas the decrease half exhibits digicam controls and the just lately captured photos. Equally, when utilizing apps corresponding to YouTube on the Galaxy Z Flip 5 in Flex mode, the decrease half of the show exhibits ahead and rewind controls alongside the search bar, in addition to brightness and quantity controls.

For different apps that don’t inherently have methods to separate controls, the decrease half turns into a mouse trackpad and in addition options buttons to tug down the notification panel, change the show’s brightness, change the brightness or quantity, or take a screenshot.

Now, at any time when your Galaxy Z Flip 5 is partly folded, a tiny Flex mode button seems on the backside left of the show. Nonetheless, if you would like this transition to be seamless and computerized, you’ll be able to set the Flex mode to activate by default with these steps:

  1. Go to Settings > Superior options > Labs > Flex mode panel
  2. Choose Apps to point out Flex mode panel routinely
  3. You’ll be able to both toggle Flex mode on for All supported apps or choose apps individually.

Observe that some apps, particularly these designed to work finest in panorama mode whereas using the whole thing of the display (corresponding to Netflix and different video companies), may not help Flex mode. Not like the Galaxy Z Fold 5, there is no such thing as a technique to power Flex mode on all apps for the time being.

Take supreme selfies

With Flex mode, the Galaxy Z Flip 5 turns into an unimaginable machine for taking regular photographs and movies with out putting it on a tripod stand. And because of the outer show, the identical applies to selfies.

Whenever you open the Digicam app, you’ll be able to allow Cowl display preview by tapping the right-most button on the highest bar. With this operate, the duvet display mirrors the viewfinder from the primary app, permitting you to take selfies from a distance whereas putting the telephone on a flat floor and utilizing hand gestures.

When opened like this, the duvet display will act as greater than only a viewfinder and can supply extra controls, together with the flexibility to modify between Picture, Video, and Portrait modes by swiping left or proper on the display.

Lastly, you’ll be able to pinch in on the show to modify from the first to the ultrawide-angle digicam, thereby capturing some phenomenal 0.5 selfies (selfies utilizing the ultrawide-angle lens) even with out opening the telephone.

Take and finish calls with fashion

Clamshells had been among the many most iconic telephone designs within the early 2000s earlier than slab telephones took over. Probably the most interesting facet of the clamshell was its fashion and class, particularly when it got here to selecting up or ending calls (again when calling was nonetheless one among a telephone’s major utilities). With the Galaxy Z Flip collection, Samsung lets you not solely expertise that sense of pleasure from opening and shutting the telephone, but additionally allows you to take and finish calls with this gesture.

To choose up and finish calls on the Galaxy Z Flip 5 by unfolding and folding the telephone, listed below are the settings you should change:

  1. Make sure the Samsung Telephone is your default dialer app. This technique could not work should you use Google Telephone or some other app as your default calling app.
  2. Go to the Telephone app, choose the three-dot button on the top-right, then Settings. Alternatively, you might go to Settings > Apps > Samsung app settings > Name Settings.
  3. Choose Flip choices inside Name settings.
  4. Allow Open telephone to reply calls and Shut telephone to finish calls.

Change to a greater launcher

When unfolded, the Galaxy Z Flip 5 has a side ratio of twenty-two:9. Since that is a lot taller than your common slab telephone, reaching app icons on the high of the show generally is a bit difficult — and unnerving because it will increase your possibilities of dropping the telephone.

Whereas components in Samsung’s One UI are optimized for single-handed utilization, the app drawer stretches out to cowl the whole thing of the show. Subsequently, selecting a third-party launcher in your new Z Flip 5 can show to be an excellent concept. To alter the launcher, comply with these steps:

  1. Obtain a launcher of your selection from the Google Play Retailer.
  2. Go to Settings > Apps > Select default apps.
  3. Below Dwelling app, change the default to your most popular launcher.

I like to recommend utilizing Niagara Launcher for the Galaxy Z Flip 5 owing to its simplistic design and ease of use with only one hand. As an alternative of a separate app drawer that occupies the display, Niagara Launcher lists all apps alphabetically in a horizontal sequence. Utilizing the letters on the perimeters, you’ll be able to merely slide — or faucet with — your thumb on the best or left edge to leap to all apps beginning with any explicit letter.
