Disable the Bixby button (or change its functionality)

We will not deny it: Bixby is a nuisance. By default, the dedicated Bixby button on the Samsung Galaxy S10 activates the virtual assistant created by Samsung. To deactivate the Bixby button we will only have to go to the homonymous application and click on the three options points to access the Settings menu.

Within this menu we will go to the Bixby Key section and we will finally activate the Press twice option to open Bixby. If we activate the Use simple press option, we can assign a quick application or command to the key in question so that it can be activated by pressing the button. Camera, WhatsApp, Instagram, Gmail, Twitter, Google Chrome … The possibilities are practically endless.

Accelerate system animations and improve performance

If we want to improve the performance of our brand new Samsung Galaxy S10e, we can use the acceleration of the animations to reduce the waiting time between action and action. To do this, we will go to the Settings application, and more specifically to the Advanced functions section.

Finally we will activate the option to reduce the animations that we can find next to the Direct Share function. If we want to speed up the phone even more, we can use the Developer Settings, which can be activated through the Compilation Number section found in the Device Information.

Once inside, we will press up to seven times on the section just mentioned. Then we will access the Development Settings that will be activated below until you find the following sections:

  • Window animation scale
  • Animation scale transitions
  • Animation Duration Scale

Finally we will set the figure at 0.5x within each of the options just mentioned.

Activate Samsung One UI gestures

It is true that Samsung's gesture system is quite rudimentary. If we want to activate it within our Galaxy S10 +, for example, just go to the Screen section, and then to the Navigation bar section.
