The new Samsung Galaxy S7 edge and S7 are packed with many new features designed to enhance your user experience.

Here are 7 tips and tricks to get started with the newest Samsung Galaxy S7 edge and S7 smartphones.

1. Free some space thanks to the micro SD

The Galaxy S7 edge and S7 mark the return of the micro SD card. You can use this feature to make room on your smartphone by moving apps on to the micro SD card memory.

The process is very simple: just go to Settings, "Applications" and "Applications Manager". Tap on the app you want to move, and choose "micro SD card" as a storage location.

2. Enable the "Always On Display" mode

Thanks to this new mode, your Galaxy S7 can always stay in standby.

You will have access to various information, such as time, calendar, date, battery level and notifications, at all times.

The function will deactivate only when you have your phone in your pocket or when you have low battery on your Galaxy S7.

To activate this mode, go to the settings screen and select the Always On Display function. Pick what you want to display in the configuration settings.

3. Samsung Motion Picture

No more excuses for badly taken pictures: your Samsung Galaxy S7 has now the possibility to take moving pictures.

Activate the Motion Picture Mode in the camera settings, and you will notice a small icon in your gallery allowing you to see the small video clip surrounding the picture.
