    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.

    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 I will certainly be adding more in the weeks/months to come ;)

    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.

    It was interesting, but I can't imagine not having any security on a smartphone (no password)

    Too bad they can't allow you the choice to have a few apps that don't require a password.

    Very nice. I'm enjoying your videos!

    There is a second method that can be used to take a screenshot on the Galaxy S4. Enable "Palm Motion" under the "My Device" settings tab. You can then swipe your palm across the screen to capture a screenshot.

    Here's a link to an article about it:

    Thanks for the tutorials. Perhaps should make it a sticky topic, for S4 beginners.

    I don't mean to cut steam on your afford. But for the future use, of other new S4 users, here is another great resource, of all the little things you might not know your S4 could do.

    A bit of a peculiar one this. Here's how to turn off the earphone notification dock on the SG4:

    Just in case you don't know the difference between creating homescreen folders via the default Touch Wiz launcher and other popular launchers.

    That looks like an IKEA table :)

    It's funny you should mention that because I had the exact same comment from someone else about a year ago when I did use an IKEA table! But not anymore, it's a large office desk.

    When I watch stuff in Dolphin Browser, I get sound but no video.

    I'm afraid flash is always going to be a bit hit and miss on android browsers so you might have to try another browser. Sorry.

    Shameless reply for the Android give-away! ;)

    I really do like your video presentations. Very succinct, clear, and to the point.

    Well done.
