    Hello all,

    I am starting a series of videos that will focus on hints and tips for using the Galaxy S4 called Basics. These are (non-rooted phone) tips with each video around 1-2 minutes long and designed to focus on a single topic. So might be very obvious, some might be a little more advanced and others are neat little tricks and different approaches that you never knew existed.

    The reason I have created the thread with this title is that in other Android Central forums where I've been activity there has been a sticky hints and tips thread and I am more than happy for others to contribute to this thread to add their own hints and tips (whether it be text, pictures or videos).

    I have previously done very successful videos on the Asus Transformer Prime (150 videos) and the Nexus 7 (100 videos). Here are a few videos just to give you a flavour of my work.

    1: How to reorder notification buttons


    2. Long press Notification Buttons


    3. How to put Apps on Your Lockscreen


    I hope you find them useful and (as I say) please add your own and if the moderators deem the thread useful they might make it a sticky

    Here's the first of my regular updates.

    In this tip I show you how to setup a page on your lockscreen that either includes a whole host of applications that you can choose, or a camera launcher page.

    Do you know what the brightness bar next to the auto brightness tick box is? Does changing that change the phone's zero point?

    Thanks for these, they're great! I've recently upgraded to the S4 from an older Android phone, and I'm learning quite a bit. One further tip regarding folders: if you want to change the name of one (in the default launcher, at least), tap on it to open it, then long-press the title bar. This will bring up the keyboard, select the title, and show the clipboard options, and you can change the folder's name as you wish.
