Automatically change the daily wallpapers on your Samsung Galaxy phone

Out of all of Samsung’s fun customizations in One UI and its Galaxy phones, the dynamic lock screen is low-key one of my all-time favorites. With other phones, I often forget how easily bored I can get with the standard lock screen options, but this dynamic feature automatically updates all the time in the background and gives me a pleasant surprise each time.

How to change the terrible keyboard on your Samsung Galaxy phone

Let’s be frank: Samsung’s default keyboard on its Galaxy phones is not good. The touch response just seems off. Word and sentence prediction is horrible.

The Galaxy S20 is easily one of the best phones of early 2020, with stunning build quality and incredibly powerful specs backed by equally powerful cameras. There’s just one problem: Samsung tries its hardest to make you use its Bixby voice assistant, even going so far as to make Bixby the default action when you long-press the side key (otherwise known as the power button).

How to change the Galaxy S20’s default keyboard to Gboard or SwiftKey

The Galaxy S20 has Samsung’s default keyboard out of the box, but it’s easy to switch to Gboard or another keyboard of your choice.
