The Note series has always been known for its awesome gaming capacity because of its large display and great performance. Now gamers everywhere can rejoice even more - because the Note10 makes gaming better than ever! Whether you are playing Fortnite, Call of Duty, or a casual puzzle game, we have tips for getting the most out of your Note10 and the unparalled gaming experience it offers.

Set up and use Game Booster

Game Tools has been redesigned and is now called Game Booster. This new version closely monitors your phone’s performance while playing games. For example, it will show your phone's esimated battery life and temperature.

Game Booster also makes it easier to access important gaming settings, so you won’t miss a beat.

While playing a game, tap the Game Booster icon in the lower left corner of the screen.

  • Settings: Tap the Settings icon to see more settings. Change the shortcut icon at the bottom right corner by tapping Shortcuts, and then choosing your desired shortcut. From this menu, you can also change the screen resolution or get help.

  • Block during game: Adjust what kind of alerts or features you want to block during gameplay, so you’ll never get distracted.

  • Advanced game features: Customize other gaming settings, such as Dolby Atmos, Auto screen lock, and more.

Connect a Bluetooth controller

Although your Note10 has a big screen and lots of thumb space, there's nothing quite like playing games with a console controller. And on the Note10, you can connect all your favorite controllers and then some.

Before anything else, make sure Bluetooth is enabled on your phone. Navigate to Settings, tap Connections, and then tap Bluetooth. If needed, tap the switch next to Bluetooth to enable it. Now you can easily pair your controller.

Here's how to connect some of the most common controllers:

Bluetooth on and searching for devices
  • Xbox One controller: Turn on your Xbox Bluetooth controller. Press and hold the Bind button (located on the top of the controller) for 3 seconds and then release it. The controller should appear on your phone's Bluetooth settings page. If it doesn't, tap Scan. When it appears, select Xbox Wireless Controller from the list of available devices.

  • PS4 controller: Make sure your PS4 controller has adequate battery power. To place the controller in Pairing Mode, press and hold the Share button and the PS button simultaneously for a couple seconds. When the controller starts to flash, release the buttons. The controller should appear on your phone's Bluetooth settings page. If it doesn't, tap Scan. When it appears, select Wireless Controller from the list of available devices. The PS4 controller will flash as it pairs to your phone.

  • Other Bluetooth controllers: There are many other Bluetooth controllers on the market that can pair with Galaxy phones. However, the steps for each controller will vary. Check your controller's user manual for instructions on pairing it to your phone.

Connect to an external monitor

So, you've connected a controller to your Note10. Could your gaming possibly get any better? Yes, it can! If you connect your phone to an external monitor, you'll be able to see every single detail.

Simply connect a DeX cable, a USB-C to HDMI adapter, or a multi-port adapter to both the phone and monitor. These adapters let you screen mirror your phone to the monitor's screen. Just open up a gaming app, like Fortnite, to see it displayed bigger on the monitor.

If a notification for DeX comes up, ignore it - this will stop the screen mirroring and open up the DeX app.
