Samsung Smartphone Gestures improvement Tips


Today we’re going to go a little deeper into Motion and Gestures and how they can improve your user experience.


The Galaxy Smartphones running at One Ui come with an advanced feature called Movements and gestures. This feature allows users to change the behavior of their smartphones in certain situations or things like use Swype with the palm to catch the screen.

Today we’re going to go a little deeper into Motion and Gestures and how they can improve your user experience. Some of our readers have the equipment language in PT-BR others in PT-PT, we currently have our Galaxy S10 + in English for the sake of convenience in using Google Assistant, but I think they will have no trouble finding options in the menu, in whatever language.

Getting to know Motions and Gestures

To access the Motions and Gestures menu, the user needs to open the Settings and go to Advanced Features. Once there, you will find several features accompanied by buttons that can be activated or deactivated independently.

Rise to Wake and Double Tap to Wake

Getting up to wake up and Double-tap waking up is pretty self-explanatory. Activating the first option will wake the phone whenever the user picks it up. The second option will do the same thing, but when the user taps the screen twice.

Getting to know Motions and Gestures

Smart Stay, Smart Alert, and Easy Mute

These three features make the phone seem a little more aware of how the user uses it. This makes the smartphone look a little smarter.

For example, Smart stay will keep the screen on as long as the front camera detects the face, regardless of the screen timeout settings. It can be very useful for users who spend a lot of time reading on their phones.

Smart Stay, Smart Alert, and Easy Mute

Smart Alert is like an alert to remind you that there are missed calls or messages on your device. With Smart Alert enabled, the phone will vibrate regularly, assuming the user has missed calls or messages. That way, the user does not need to activate the screen and check notifications whenever he picks up the phone.

Smart Alert

Let’s say the user is in a meeting and forgot to put the phone in DND mode. With Easy Mute enabled, the user will be able to silence incoming calls and alarms quickly without having to interact with the touchscreen or any of the physical buttons. Simply place your hand on the screen or – even faster – turn your phone face down to silence ongoing alerts.
