Things to Remember about Your Galaxy Note
Part of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 For Dummies Cheat Sheet
Here's an assortment of handy, time-saving tricks to keep in mind to boost your productivity (or your hopeless addiction to your new Galaxy Note 3 phone):
Lock the phone when you're on a call: Press the Power Lock button. The screen goes dark; the touchscreen is off. That way, you can talk without fear that something will touch the screen to mess things up.
Dictation! You can speak into the phone as an effective and quick alternative to using the onscreen keyboard. Just look for the Microphone icon.
Activate both the predictive text and keyboard swipe features for rapid text entry.
Press and hold a key on the onscreen keyboard to confirm that your stubby fingers have selected the correct character.
Spread your fingers to zoom into a web page, where it's much easier to tap (choose) links.
Quickly put the Galaxy Note into Vibration mode by pressing the Volume Down button until the phone jiggles.
When downloading updates or new apps, or for faster web browsing, activate the Galaxy Note's Wi-Fi.
Use Google Now to control the phone with your voice or search the Internet.
