Samsung a 30s how to set up
Even after reviewing SGS5, I want to pay attention to some of its software and hardware features. Of course, only the most interesting. Today I will write about the features of the camera, I think it will take a long time to explain why I decided to start with it. For me, the camera in my smartphone is as important as the ability to call / write emails from it. I’m ready to forgive a lot for a good camera.
And in the Galaxy S line, the camera has always been good. In the first generation, it was so well superior to competing solutions. I remember then the choice was between Galaxy S and some other models, including Motorola Milestone and HTC Desire, one had a better camera than the other. Then, in fact, few people paid attention to the photo capabilities of a smartphone, today the situation is different, but the Galaxy S 5 remains one of the best camera phones.
For starters, what has changed at the iron level? The number of pixels on the matrix has increased, now there are 16 million of them. At the same time, the worst thing that could happen is a decrease in the physical size of each individual, as many have already done. Then there would be more harm than good from 16 MP. But the size of an individual pixel on the matrix remains the same. 1.12 microns. Accordingly, the size of the matrix has increased slightly. This is important, we can confidently judge that the quality of photos will not be worse than what we saw in S4 or Note 3. And new photo processing algorithms allow you to take photos faster. This is clearly visible with the HDR mode. By the way, HDR can be used even with burst shooting.
As before, there is no mechanical camera key, it is missing at least for quick launching of the camera. However, the speed of launching the camera from the lock screen immediately catches your eye, the process takes less than 3 seconds, this is a very good result.
Also, I will refer to the camera speed as the fastest focusing to date. only 0.3 seconds. High-speed shooting is also present, you can take up to 30 photos by simply holding the on-screen shutter button.
The camera has added software capabilities. The menu is still arranged in a grid, there are quite a few items. They can be arranged, just hold down the desired icon and move to the desired cell. It is clear that most often everything is filmed in a fully automatic mode, however, the ability to adjust some parameters manually is pleasing. For example, the ISO value can be set in the range from 100 to 800 units, you can select the metering, adjust the white balance (one of the preset presets, there is no manual Kelvin setting) and exposure compensation. I would like to see the ability to select Focus manually, but this is not.
As before, there are various shooting modes and effects. In both cases, the presence of the “Download” item is striking. Samsung has made available the SDK for the camera application, now other developers can create their own effects and even entire shooting modes for the SGS5. Already now you can load several, fewer modes, effects, of course, more.
There are some possibilities that were not previously available. For example, the selective focus function. It is turned on directly in the camera application, after taking a picture, you can select Focus on near objects, on distant or general focus. Of course, the focus does not change with the help of software developments, several pictures are taken during shooting, and then, when choosing a focus, the focus simply changes smoothly between them. You can save any of the resulting images.
I have already mentioned HDR in Galaxy S 5. This mode does not need to be replaced with third-party software. it works perfectly. And not only for single photography, it works even with burst shooting and when shooting video. I really liked the latter, I shot a separate one about HDR in the video.
For photos, this mode is needed so that when shooting contrasting plans, everything in the frame remains traced.
And overall, the photos come out great. I also like how easy it is for the camera to focus in macro, detailing shots and drawing in the dark and light areas of the image. Such a camera is needed in order to receive very beautiful cards even from a smartphone.
Sample photos and videos
To date, the camera in the new Galaxy S 5 can be called the best among those found in smartphones. I immediately remember the Nokia Lumia 1020 with its large sensor and 41 MP, but the lumia is also weaker on many fronts. Let me remind you that we have already compared the flagship models of devices in which both the 1020 and Note 3 took part. Then Note 3 surpassed all. Judging by the test photos of the Xperia Z2 from Sony, the model is not far from the Z1 in terms of the camera, the difference in quality with the SGS5 is big. The camera in HTC One (M8) has an obscene 4 MP, but even with this resolution the photos do not look very good, there are often overexposures and blockages in light tones. That leaves the Nexus and the iPhone. They are also good camera phones, but they lose in functionality, the number of MPs and the lack of HDR mode when shooting video.
- Startup speed from the lock screen;
- Focusing speed;
- Excellent HDR for photos and videos;
- Maintain pixel size while increasing their number.
- Lack of a hardware camera release button;
- No manual focus adjustment.
Enabling battery percentage display on pure Android 9
In the latest versions of Android, you can enable the display of the battery percentage in the status bar using a simple setting (if you do not have one, use the methods from the following sections). Steps to enable:
- Go to Settings and click on “Battery”.
- Turn on the item “Battery level”.
These are all the necessary actions. the necessary information should immediately appear at the top of the screen of your smartphone.
How to enable battery percentage in Android
On many Android phones and tablets, the battery status in the status bar is simply displayed as “fullness”, which is not very informative. In this case, there is usually a built-in ability to enable the display of the battery charge as a percentage in the status bar, without third-party applications or widgets, but this function is hidden (except for the latest versions of the system).
In this instruction. how to enable the display of the battery charge as a percentage by the built-in tools of Android 4, 5, 6 and 7 (when writing it was checked on Android 5.1 and 6.0.1), separately. on the latest Android 9 Pie and newer, on Samsung phones Galaxy as well as a simple third-party application that has one single function. toggles the hidden system setting of the phone or tablet, which is responsible for displaying charge percentages.

Note: usually, even without turning on special options, the remaining percentage of the battery charge can be seen if you first pull out the notification shade from the top of the screen, and then the quick action menu (charge numbers will appear next to the battery).
Battery percentage on Android built-in system tools (System UI Tuner)
The first method usually works on almost any Android device with up-to-date versions of the system, where there is no charge percentage point in the settings. over, the method works even in cases where the manufacturer has installed its own launcher, which is different from the “pure” android.
The essence of the method is to enable the option “Show battery level as a percentage” in the hidden settings of the System UI Tuner, having previously enabled these same settings. This requires the following steps:

- Open the notification shade so that you can see the settings button (gear).
- Press and hold the gear until it starts to rotate and then release it.
- The settings menu will open with the notification that “System UI Tuner has been added to the settings menu.” Keep in mind that steps 2-3 are not always obtained the first time (you should not let go immediately, as the gear began to rotate, but after about a second or two).
- Now, at the very bottom of the settings menu, open the new item “System UI Tuner”.
- Turn on the option “Show battery level as a percentage”.
Done, now the percentage of charge will be shown in the status bar on your Android tablet or phone.
Using the Battery Percent Enabler app
If for some reason you cannot turn on the System UI Tuner, then you can use the third-party application Battery Percent Enabler (or “Battery with a percentage” in the Russian version), which does not require special permissions or root access, but reliably enables the display of the percentage of the charge batteries (moreover, the same system setting that we changed in the first method just changes).
- Run the application and check the “Battery with percentage”.
- You immediately see that the top line began to display the percentage of the battery (in any case, I had it), but the developer writes that you need to reboot the device (turn it off and on completely).
Done. At the same time, after you changed the setting using the application, you can delete it, the percentage of the charge will not disappear anywhere (but you will have to reinstall it if you need to disable the display of charging in percentage).
Battery percentage on Samsung
Samsung Galaxy phones have a built-in function to turn on the display of battery charge in percent, but it is not in the most obvious location for beginners:
- Go to Settings. Notifications. On the next screen, click on the item “Status bar”.
- Turn on the item “Show charge percentage”.
After that, your Samsung Galaxy will show the percentage of charge next to the battery icon in the upper right corner of the screen, as required.
This parameter is used to track an object that you tap on the screen during shooting. The phone keeps focusing on this subject no matter where it is going or what is happening. This feature, typical of expensive DSLR cameras, is supported on Samsung phones.

This option displays the net mowing line on your camera screen. This can be useful for aligning shots, especially when taking pictures of mountains, landscapes and more.
Flash. 3 options available
Flash settings are usually available in three main options. on, off and auto. In the latter case, the system itself will decide when it is necessary to use the flash, which allows you to get higher quality pictures.
Camera functions on Samsung smartphones
Of course, there are a great many models of Samsung smartphones, and each of these models has its own specifics of phone camera settings. But the vast majority of such cameras have the following basic settings, which we will discuss below.
This option makes it possible to take pictures by saying a key phrase. For example, it could be “Cheese”, “Smile”, “Record video”. after which they take a picture or start recording a video.
Button Binding (Volume Keys)
You can bind your volume buttons to take pictures, zoom, or record videos. This can be handy for taking selfies and other functions that you can use the volume buttons to trigger.

Why Samsung Galaxy a30 / a30s phone turned off and won’t turn on
Since you are here, it means you have a misfortune, the Samsung Galaxy a30 / a30s phone has turned off and will not turn on.
This is a really unpleasant case and many even cry (I know from messages). It’s good if your phone, and in case of a favor Samsung a30, but it does not start in the s with a kati ball.
I will tell you what to do without going into the question “why”, since I do not know this, but only if something in it is damaged hardware, then I am powerless to help remotely.
There are several ways to “force” the Samsung a30. I will show you three ways. Try the latter last, as it will erase all data, but at the same time, it has the most chances to revive your phone.
The first way
The first method is the easiest, fastest and in many cases breathes new life into a30 type phones.
It’s simple. You just need to press not one “Enable” button, but immediately on two of it and make it quieter and expect a normal start.
Why might this help? Because then a kind of reset occurs, as if you pulled out and inserted the battery as it was available in earlier models.
It started, great, but no, then try some more options. As I already mentioned, the most effective way is the third, but with the loss of photos, contacts.
In this solution, you need to press along with the power not to make it quieter, but on the contrary to make it louder.
After a while, a menu or Android will appear with the inscription No Commands. There is no menu, then press the power supply menu should appear (or release the “Switch on” after 5 seconds, and keep making it louder until the menu appears).
Here you will find 2 ways at once. If you select reboot system now with the sound buttons and confirm with power, then there is a chance that the device will start.
If the result is zero, then select wipe data / factory reset and confirm with the “Enable” button, while also saying goodbye to your personal data. Then select YES and also press power.
Put some time until everything is settled and select reboot system now, which is equivalent to the command to reboot.
Yes, the loss of data is a bad surprise, but you must agree that this is better than nothing, and if synchronization was turned on, then most will recover. Success.
