The new Edge UX on the Galaxy S7 Edge is more powerful than before, and lets you perform specific tasks with just one touch. You can set a timer for any duration you want, message a certain contact or launch the camera in selfie (front-facing) mode. Swipe in from the transparent floating Edge panel handle on the side of your phone, swipe till you see the Tasks edge, then tap the plus button to add a shortcut.

Built into the home button below the display, the S7's fingerprint sensor is still the easiest way to unlock your device. Plus, it makes authorizing in-store transactions with Samsung Pay much more convenient and secure, since you won't have to enter a PIN or password in plain view of surrounding people. Set this up by going into the Lock Screen And Security section of the settings and selecting Fingerprints.

Enable Game Launcher
