This guide will show you how to use the Galaxy S5 camera app to take better looking photos, how to use the many modes and other tips and tricks you need to know about the new camera app.
With the Samsung Galaxy S5 users have access to a range of photo options with the built-in camera app.
We’ll walk through the Galaxy S5 camera settings you need to know, a few tricks like using another Galaxy device as a remote viewfinder and how to access all of the camera modes, a few of which are not where you would expect to find them.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 features a 16MP rear facing camera capable of taking photos faster than the other Galaxy smartphones thanks to a new fast autofocus that users will notice as soon as they open the camera app and aim at a subject.
Watch this four-minute Galaxy S5 camera video for a run through of various features and modes. When you open the Galaxy S5 Camera app you’ll see the following screen with a lot of different options. These are the ten basic functions of the Camera app, you can tap anywhere on-screen to focus there and to get the light reading from there. There are many Galaxy S5 camera app settings to check out and to change to customize the experience. Burst Shots – Turn this on to hold the shutter and take a burst of photos as long as you hold the shutter. Picture Stabilization – This can help deliver a clearer photo if you have shaky hands or are moving, but it can also slow down the focus. Face Detection – With this on this can detect the faces in your photo to focus on them and take a better looking photo. Selective Focus – This should really be in Modes, but it lets you take a photo and then blue a background or foreground by picking where to focus after you take the photo.
Video Size – Pick the resolution for your videos, 1920 x 1080 is standard HD or opt for 4K at UHD by tapping on this option, but keep in mind the larger resolution uses more storage.
Recording Mode – Choose normal, slow motion, fast motion or smooth motion that is 60 frames per second.
Video Stabilization – Turn this on to help stabilize your videos and remove shaking and motion. Audio Zoom – With this mode on when you zoom in during a video the Galaxy S5 will amplify audio at the source, and dampen surrounding noise.
Effects – Put a live effect such as Vignette, faded color or others on your photo before you take it. Remote Viewfinder – Link up to another Samsung device to use one phone to control the camera on another.
Voice Control – Say Smile, Cheese, Capture or Shoot to take a photo and Record Video to start recording with your voice. If you use some of these more than others you can tap and hold to re-arrange the Galaxy S5 camera setting icons to put your favorite options at the top of the screen.
Beauty Face – This mode applies an airbrush effect to portraits to deliver a more flattering portrait.
Best face – Pick the best face for a subject or subjects so everyone is smiling with eyes open.
Panning shot – if something moves through the scene you can make the background look blurred to show motion. Hold the camera still while taking the photo then you will see a list of the above options that it can apply based on what the camera detected.
Virtual Tour – Create a panning and moving tour of a house or area by snapping photos that are then animated in the gallery. You can also download more modes like Animated photo, Sound & Shot, Sports and Surround Shot to do more with the camera by tapping on download all the way to the right.
How come when I try to take a drama shot picture on the s5, in some shots it doesn’t give me the option to do drama shot?
Nevermind, I just found out that you have to turn image stabilization off to change the ISO. That was in response to my question that didn’t go through about the ISO being locked.
Brilliant, I had the same problem as others here, going to standard mode solved the problem.
I then went to a Sprint Corporate Store where they said the volume switch doesn’t control the zoom. I then went through the online Sprint Manual and on page 83 it clearly states, under both taking pictures and video, that by depressing the volume button you can zoom in and out or by squeezing your fingers on the screen. I can’t find any option to turn off the shutter sound and even with my phone on mute and ear phones in, though not in my ears, the sound comes out loud and clear.
Please help, I turned on the grid lines on my S5 camera, and now I don’t know how to turn it off.
I was blown away by the quality of the pictures taken by my new s5, did not expect it and I am delighted!
Over the past few years we’ve seen most Android smartphones continue to get bigger and bigger, especially with the Samsung Galaxy S series, and the popular Samsung Galaxy Note lineup. While having a smartphone with a beautiful 5.1-inch 1080p full HD display is excellent for playing games, viewing Facebook, or even watching Netflix, not everyone wants a device so big, or would like to be able to use it with one hand. While everyone’s needs and wants differ, some people love Samsung devices but still would love to occasionally use it with a single hand. The One-handed operation mode on the Galaxy S5 is extremely easy to turn on, then a quick swipe of your display will let you essentially make your phone as small as you’d like.
In order to enable one-handed use on the Galaxy S5 you’ll need to head into settings and toggle the option.
To start head into settings by pulling down the notification bar and selecting the round gear-shaped settings icon near the top right.
The phone continues to function exactly as it always does, only you’re using much less screen real estate. This is just one feature of many, and if you love the Galaxy S5 but sometimes feel like the screen is just too big, but don’t want something smaller, consider trying the One-handed operation features outlined above. The Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are great phones, possibly some of the best Samsung has put out yet. You can customize your phone with your favorite launchers, icon packs, wallpapers, and so on, but one thing you may not know is that Samsung has a custom theme engine to theme your smartphone to your liking.
From there, you’ll see your default theme enabled, but right next to it you’ll see an option to find more themes. Setting up themes is as simple as that, but there’s definitely a few cons as well as some pros to look out for.
The single thing that makes this problem even worse is the lack of any sort of search function in the Themes app.
Even though many are allowed to submit themes, there really isn’t a whole lot of good on there. Unfortunately, Samsung has includes a lot of different ventures inside of their smartphone, but none of them have ever really seen much success. As I mentioned earlier, Samsung used to have some good themes available, but many of them were pulled after the partnership with Marvel came to an end. The Theme Engine would be much better if there was some sort of organizational structure to it. The Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge has a lot of high points, but the whole Theme Engine needs a lot of work.
Though the Finger Scanner wasn't as big of a deal at the launch of the Galaxy Note 4 as it was when it debuted on the Galaxy S5, Samsung kept it around hiding within the home button ready to boost your phone's security.
The setup process takes some time, as does getting the right feel for how to swipe on it for the best results, but in the end it's a net positive.
If you didn't set up your phone to recognize your fingerprint when you first set up your phone, chances are you haven't paid much attention to the feature. Tap the top entry on the page, Fingerprint manager, tap OK on the next screen and then follow the prompts to register your first fingerprint.
When first registering your finger, swipe it down across the home button at a variety of angles so that the scanner can read the entire print. Final step: You'll now be asked to enter a backup password if for some reason the phone can't recognize your fingerprint. The first fingerprint you scanned was probably the thumb on your dominant hand, but Samsung also lets you train the Note 4 to recognize two additional fingers for cases when you're holding the phone differently. If for some reason you'd like to de-register one of your prints and choose a different one, head back into the Finger Scanner settings, select Fingerprint manager and long-press on one of the prints. Now that you have your fingerprint(s) scanned into your Note 4, it's time to start making the most of it.
All of these options can be found back in the Finger Scanner portion of the phone settings, at the bottom underneath "Features." The setup process is slightly different for each, but you can quickly enable or disable each feature independently. Once you have your fingers scanned and you get in the habit of using it, we think you'll migrate toward using the Finger Scanner in every app that supports it. According to a new report, HTC fans in Australia may be able to buy the HTC 10 starting May 3 for just above $1,000. HTC's partnership with Valve has turned into something incredible, but there are a few things you need to know about the HTC Vive. Oculus may be having trouble shipping their Rift headset to early adopters as promised, but the experience for owners is still amazing. Learn how to use the Samsung Galaxy S6 Easy Mode to simplify the Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 Edge, make icons and text bigger and unlock a magnifier feature that makes it easier to see small text in the real world. Samsung did a better job of removing duplicate apps and un-needed features, but for a first time smartphone owner or for users trying to switch form iPhone to Android the Galaxy S6 Easy Mode is a welcome option for many users. Easy Mode adds shortcuts to the most used settings, makes the clock and all of your app icons bigger and simplifies using the Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 Edge. After you spend a month or more with the Galaxy S6 you may decide that it is time to go back to Standard mode, and that’s as simple as tapping a few options.
With the Galaxy S6 display on and the phone unlocked (looking at the home screen) pull down from the top edge of the screen. On this next screen tap on Easy mode at the top and then scroll down to the bottom to choose the default apps. When you are ready, tap on Done and the screen will go black for a few seconds while the Galaxy S6 Easy Mode starts. You can also use the Galaxy S6 magnifier app to magnify text up to 5X, so that you can easily read menus and other small text without squinting or grabbing a pair of glasses. Users that need a lot of protection should check out the Galaxy S6 OtterBox cases including the Defender and Commuter series that offer a lot of protection for the device.OtterBox Defender Galaxy S6 cases come in seven colors for the shell and seven for the cover, allowing users to combine to get the color scheme they want.
The S Note app will come pre-installed on your Samsung Galaxy S5 and is a quick and convenient way to take both typed and handwritten notes on the go. When you go to create a new note in S Note, you'll see a pen tool in the upper left hand corner. Also notice that you have a decent formatting bar along the top too which lets you undo and redo actions.
S Note comes complete with lots of different templates including checklists, meeting agenda notes, blank sheets, and more.
If you have a Samsung Galaxy S5 or another Samsung device, do you ever use S Note or S Memo? I use it everyday on both my Note 3 and Note 10.1 2014 and the Evernote feature ties is beautifully with my home and work computers. Natefish, SPen will NOT work with S5, SPen requires a different digitizer than the Note devices have and the Galaxy S devices do not. So, Samsung developed a few features that make one-handed operations easier in Galaxy Note 4, for example, one-handed input, and reduce screen size. Galaxy Note 4 side key panel gives you navigation buttons on screen so that you can access to them without considering orientation and location. This feature is similar, but not identical to the toolbox in Galaxy S5, as the later is for quick access to apps. By default, the 3 keys in Galaxy Note 4 side key panel are Home, Recent and Back as shown above.
To configure Galaxy Note 4 side key panel, you can choose one of the two following methods. Both methods will direct you to the identical page for you to configure keys in Galaxy Note 4 side key panel. In the manage keys page, tap and hold the more options(menu) button, and drop it over Home button as shown below.
If you drop it into the empty box in the end of the row, it will be added to the side key panel and there will be 4 keys in the side key panel. In any screens (home, app drawer, or individual apps), tap and drag the handler to get the side key panel. If you have any problems or questions to use or configure Galaxy Note 4 side key panel, please post them in the comment box below.

Turning your smartphone into a mobile hotspot can save you from painfully slow public WiFi or the crappy free internet your hotel provides. Follow the directions at the bottom of the screen to connect another device to your Galaxy S5.
In this screen go ahead and change the password or any other settings you'd like, including security type and then tap Save. Keep in mind that some data plans may not work with mobile hotspot if your carrier doesn't allow it. Samsung delivers a new interface that makes the camera easier to use, but if you are upgrading from a Galaxy S3 or Galaxy S4 or coming from an iPhone the app can be a little confusing to use. In the sections below we will break out more on how to use each of these Galaxy S5 camera features. The best thing to do is leave this on auto until you know you need to use a specific setting. You can also access this from the gallery later by tapping on the Edit icon for any photo taken in this mode to see the various options. Slide up from the bottom edge to reveal other ways to frame the second camera and tap on frame to move around. After downloading more modes you will see them in the mode listing and you can select and use them, just like the above options.
All these options are ridiculous on a camera phone, this is the only feature you need on a camera, so simple and straight forward to use….
If you love your new Samsung Galaxy S5 but sometimes find that you wish things were easier to do with one hand, below you’ll find a simple video and set of instructions to enable the Galaxy S5 One-handed use features.
Then once you’ve done that a simple gesture swipe on the screen will bring up the one-handed use screen shown in the image above.
It actually looks and feels sort of awkward, but it’s extremely easy to navigate the entire device with one hand. Rather than fumbling and repositioning the device in your hand before you can reach the volume keys, or using a different hand, simply tap the bottom icons and you’re set. And we’re going to show you how to do just that: customize your Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge with Samsung’s theme engine.
Once you find one you like, select it, and select “Download.” This will require you to have a Samsung account. Almost everybody can submit a theme to the Samsung Theme Store, and that’s okay, but it also means there’s a lot of junk.
That’s right, the only way to find themes is by going through a bunch of different categories.
Much of it seems half baked compared to something you would download off the Play Store, say the Nova Launcher paired with a nice icon pack and detailed wallpaper. Now, there’s just lackluster content, but Samsung could easily change that if they decided it was profitable. The swipe-style scanner may not be as convenient as what's available on some phones, but the way its integrated into the phone to work for your lockscreen, Samsung Account, PayPal and other apps makes it valuable to set up.
Head into the Settings, then find the Finger Scanner entry — at the bottom of the "Personalization" section — to get started. The on-screen guide will have you swipe any finger of your choice 10 times on the home button to properly map the full print.
To further increase security Samsung doesn't let you use a simple pattern or PIN for backup, and even imposes a minimum character length of six and requires both numbers and letters.
To register additional fingerprints, head back into the Fingerprint manager and press the + at the top to go back through the registration process with a new finger. Immediately after scanning your first fingerprint the phone will let you use it to unlock your phone when you turn the screen on, but that's not the only way to use this extra layer of security. Not only is it much more secure than a standard pattern, but it can also save you time when logging into the places you visit most on your phone. You still own a smartphone and you can still download apps, check email and browse the web, but it is a little easier. You can switch back and forth between the standard mode and the Galaxy S6 Easy Mode without losing any of your other settings or apps. You can tap on the plus icons on the screen to the right to add shortcuts to other apps you like to use. There is always a help option at the top of the screen top learn how to use the Galaxy S6 Easy Mode. The case is $49.95 and there are higher-priced options with RealTree camo and with sports teams on the back. To toggle between free hand writing and typed notes, just tap either the T next to the pen tool or expand the pen tool menu and select the type of writing utensil yo'd like, color, and more. With a battery that can last hours, the Galaxy S5 is the perfect companion for times when you need your own dedicated wireless connection.
If you run into issues or have problems, the first thing you should do is make sure you're on a compatible data plan with your carrier. 4K is a new higher resolution video format that is gaining a little traction on new HDTVs, but for the most part users will be fine shooting in 1080P. I got this phone because of the camera (grand-daughter) and I was about to throw it across the room before I took it back within my 14 day trial. From there you can resize as you’d like, and even move it to the left side for those left-handed people like myself. Then the top has three buttons to return to full size, toggle quick favorites for calls, and even a multi-tasking option.
We’ve got almost everything there is, whether you’re looking to find out how to operate the Always On display or even disable the Edge features on the Galaxy S7 Edge. We’ve got the full guide on how to do that below, as well as some pros and cons of using it. That will take you into the Samsung Theme Store, where you can choose from a bunch of different user submitted themes for your smartphone. This is primarily a problem because there’s no real way to see all of the popular and quality themes up front. Most of the time you’re not going to be able to find what you’re looking for because of this. Samsung did have some nice themes available, particularly during their partnership with Marvel. But, if Samsung is able to update it over the next couple of weeks with features that would reward developers instead of hiding their work, it’s highly possible that the Theme Store could flourish. After all, it’s much easier to download something like Nova Launcher and find a favorite icon pack on the Play Store. Again, using the Theme Engine is entirely up to you, but I found that my time was much more well spent by heading into the Play Store, downloading Nova Launcher and an icon pack that I liked.
This is where you'll be able to control everything related to your Finger Scanner, but you need to set it up first. You can add two more fingerprints later, but at the first go we suggest using the thumb on the hand you most often hold your phone in — that'll make it easiest to swipe and unlock when first powering on your phone.
At the next screen you'll be given the option to enhance recognition with 10 more swipes by tapping Register — we advise taking the few seconds to do so. But that's okay, as you won't be using the password often — only in situations where you can't swipe your finger (like when you're wearing gloves, for example). The most common combination of prints will likely be both thumbs and the index finger on your dominant hand — but of course it's completely up to you which fingers you register. The Note 4's software also lets you use your fingerprint to sign into supported websites using Samsung's built-in browser, as well as authenticate in the PayPal app and anywhere your Samsung Account would be needed. You can always change it later and on a case by case basis but this is the template S Note will default to for new notes.
I personally prefer just using Evernote but I can see why some of the templates and options in S Note may be more convenient to some folks. There’s plenty more to it still, but what thing many don’t know or think about is the plenty of customization options the smartphone has. It’s truly something you have to stumble upon, and even more so because all of the good themes have been overshadowed by all the bad.
Unfortunately, those have since been pulled from the store, leaving us with many lackluster options. But in most cases, you’ll find that pairing the Nova Launcher up with a custom icon pack and wallpaper will be your best option.
