What Is Game Tools?

You’d not be able to open Game Tools if you didn’t access the Gaming Launcher first, which means they both play a vital role with each other. To open the Game Tools from the Gaming Launcher, go to the lower-right corner of the app.

You’ll be able to access or use different controls, such as the universal slider bar. To use the universal slider bar, move or slide to the right to increase your Smartphone’s performance, although you’ll be sacrificing your Smartphone’s battery. You can also move or slide it to the left to save energy if you’re running out of battery.

Is it possible to access the Game Tool while playing a game or while you’re inside a specific game app? The answer is a huge yes! You can access the Game Tools even before you’re playing any game. Two do that, just put your two fingers on the screen and pinch or slide your two fingers towards each other.

After doing that, the Game Tool will automatically show up. The Game Tool will provide various options for you, such as block alerts, record games, take screenshots, disable screen touch, and even lock the navigation keys. You can also share those videos and pictures with your social media that you’ve taken from the game.

Pausing A Game, Taking Screenshots, And Recording Video Using Gaming Launcher

When you’re inside on a particular game, you have the option to pause or lock the screen of the game you’re playing so you can do other things, such as opening other apps. Samsung Game Launcher allows you to access up to four apps at the same time simultaneously. This feature is convenient since you can multitask even when you’re playing your favorite game. But in case you need to modify your game’s visual settings such as frame rate and resolution, you need to go out of the game first and change it using the Game Tools under Samsung’s Game Launcher.

What’s great about the Samsung Game Launcher is that it allows you to pause the game and capture screenshots and record your gameplay, which you can share with your social media. When you’re on a game, it’s quite simple to go to the Game Tool, and you will see an option there to either screenshot or record, and it will automatically save it to your album.

Samsung Game Launcher’s Progress Monitoring

Samsung Galaxy J7 Duo Gets Android Pie With New Features and Specs

The Galaxy J7 was released in the first part of 2018, mainly for the Indian market. The phone will get last year’s OS from Android, which takes the form of Pie 9.0. The version number for the firmware is J720FDDU4BSG7 and 1.3 GB of free space is required for download and installation.

Galaxy J7 Duo specs

The phone has a 5.5 inch Super AMOLED display and an Exynos 7885 Octa-core processor. A Mali G71 GPU allows the device to have good performance when it comes to graphics.

The J7 Duo is further equipped with 4GB of RAM and 32 GB storage space but it does have a micros SD slot with a max value of 256 GB.

There is a rear-mounted double camera on the phone with 13 MP and a 5 MP sensor. The front-facing camera has a single 8 MP sensor to its name.

When it was launched, the J7 Duo came with Android 8.0 Oreo as standard. The phone was behind on the latest operating system when it was launched and still is. Although receiving the 9th version of Android Software, Google is almost finishing up the 10th version.

When to expect Android Pie 9.0?

The phone specifications should not require the latest Android OS, however. As Android 9.0 is more than enough to provide a quality user experience for J7 Duo owners. The software update is expected to slowly roll out in the next couple of months but there is no official release date offered by Samsung.

Expect a slower update as not all devices will receive it at once. These upgrades usually happen gradually by offering the software to phones belonging to a batch number. No matter your batch number, or your location, you can try to see if the update is available in your settings and manually install it.

Galaxy Fold, The World’s First Mainstream Folding Smartphone, Costs $2,000

Samsung has finally presented its Galaxy S10 lineup and the world’s first mainstream folding smartphone – Galaxy Fold. But there is one big issue with Galaxy Fold. Namely, this device costs $2,000, which, nonetheless, sets a too high price tag for high-end foldable phones. That might turn out to be in customers’ disadvantage when other folding smartphones would start rolling out on the market.

According to some analysts of the industry, people would love to buy a Galaxy Fold, only that they don’t have the financial possibility to do so. And that could prove out to be one significant problem for Samsung which was hoping to revive smartphone market sales with its innovation, sales that witnessed a drop in 2018, for the first time in history.

However, the $2,000 price tag should not come as a surprise for us since Apple with its iPhone X lineup, for example, pushed the prices beyond $1,000. Accordingly, Samsung thought that Galaxy Fold, which is of a superior quality than iPhone X, plus that it is the first mainstream folding smartphone, should cost more.

Galaxy Fold Is The World’s First Mainstream Folding Smartphone

Galaxy Fold boasts a 4.6-inch display when folded. However, when you unfold it, Galaxy Fold turns into a tablet with a screen of 7.3 inches. In tablet mode, you can use up to three applications at the same time via split-screen functionality. Besides, it comes with two batteries, one for each side of the smartphone, and a total of six cameras.

Under the hood, it boasts 12 Gb of RAM, which makes it the first mainstream smartphone on the market to possess this amount of RAM. Besides, you can order it four colors, namely, Cosmo Black, Space Silver, Martian Green, and Astro Blue. Galaxy Fold, the world’s first folding smartphone, would become available on April 26th this year.

As for how the Galaxy Fold folds, Samsung created a particular type of display technology. Namely, the so-called Infinity Flex Display makes it possible for us to fold and unfold the device for as much as we want without tearing or breaking the screen.

Samsung Exceeds Expectations with One UI

Android Pie has been available for some time and OEM updates are starting to surface. Samsung shed its previous UI in the form one a new One UI that takes the best out of Android Pie and delivers a remarkable experience.

From day one Samsung put a heavy focus on personalization, fitting its first smartphones with a user interface called TouchWiz. Samsung’s personalization layer started to become good with the introduction of Android 5.0 Lollipop on the S6.  Samsung Experience arrived on S7 and made things even better but it seems that the company wanted to mark the release of the S10 with the addition of a revolutionary UI.


One UI was designed from the ground up as a new interface with fresh colors, icons and overall looks. A subtle accent is placed on whites and greys, generating a tranquil feeling. It looks great, offering a modern and intuitive feeling that is very attractive. The remarkable use of soft-radius corners and negative space makes it even better.

Interaction points were shifted between the rows of apps, facilitating the use of the device with a single hand.  The free space may seem a bit unusual at first but the change is great. Samsung managed implement the new navigational gestures feature without issue and it feels really good.

The addition of a system-wide dark mode option will make many users happy. It may not be as optimized as the dark modes offered by OnePlus and Google but it’s better than using a third-party theme.

One UI offers a variety of handy tweaks that improve the daily experience, including revamped pre-loaded apps that aim to deliver a good experience.


This may sound a bit strange but the main flow of One UI is represented by the fact that it easy to tell that it was made by Samsung. Access to common features is still tied to the main Settings menu. A few folders that don’t seem to be on par with One UI are still present. Bugs that were present in Oreo made the transition untouched.


It may have some flaws but One UI is a great update and many users will be able to enjoy it.
