Check out the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 if you haven’t already.

1. Set Up the Cover Screen

The Cover screen is the major highlight of the Galaxy Z Flip 4. Not only can you see your notifications, but you can also check your alarms, among others. It provides all the needed information without flipping your phone open.

It’s important that you set up the cover screen as per your preference. For now, you can choose the clock of your liking or the screen graphics. Plus, you can also pick the widgets you want.

To do so, open the Settings app and select the Cover screen. Next, tap on Clock style and pick one.

Pro Tip: You can also customize the Cover screen to the color and graphic of your liking. Note that putting a slew of colors out there may affect the battery life.

2. Start Timer From the Cover Screen

The timer should be one of the easily accessible functions on your phone, and you should be able to start the timer as soon as possible. Thankfully, the cover screen of your Galaxy Z Flip 4 lets you do so. However, you will have to set up the Cover screen beforehand.

To do so, open the Settings app, go to the Cover screen and tap on Widgets.

Once done, close your phone and tap twice on the Cover screen. Swipe left until you see the timer. Cool, right?

3. Add a Smart Widget

One of the coolest addition to the Galaxy Flip 4 is Smart Widget. This widget ensures you don’t waste any space on your home screen. Like iPhone’s Smart Stacks, you can pile several widgets on top of one another. All you need to do is swipe through the widgets until you land on the one you need.

To enable Smart Widget on your Galaxy Z Flip 4, long-press on the home screen and select Widgets from the bottom ribbon. Next, select Smart Widgets.

Pick one of the designs and hit the Add button.

After you add a widget, swipe left or right to check different widgets. The good thing is that you can also add and remove the apps of your choice.

For instance, you can remove Calendar and add Google Photos to the bunch.

4. Speed Dial Your Contact

Speed dialing your contacts has never been faster on the Z Flip 4. The best part is that you can do this without unfolding your phone. Just make sure that you pick the right contact from your contact list.

To enable it, head over to Cover screen settings and tap on Direct Dial. Select the contacts you want to add from your contact book, and that’s about it.

After that, fold your phone. Tap twice on the cover screen, and swipe left. Yep, you can thank me later.

5. Master the Gestures

The Galaxy Z Flip 4 is a tall phone, and a little challenging to pull down the notification panel, especially when you’re using it with a single hand. Thankfully, there is a nifty way out.

You can swipe down on the fingerprint sensor, and the notification panel will slide down. Cool, right?

To enable it, go to Advanced settings (under Settings), and select Motion and gestures from the list.

Next, tap on Finger sensor gestures and toggle the switch. That’s it.

All you need to do is swipe down your finger gently on the sensor to see the Notification panel. Swipe again to access the Quick Settings panel.

6. Take a Screenshot

Speaking of gestures, you can also enable the shortcut for screenshots. As you can imagine, pushing the buttons for a simple screenshot is not the easiest task on this phone. Here too, Motion and gestures come to your rescue.

All you need to do is toggle the switch for ‘Palm swipe to capture.’ And the next time you have to take a screenshot, slide your palm’s edge from right to left on the screen, and your Galaxy smartphone will take care of the rest.

7. Build a Seamless System

If you have a Samsung tablet or you wear a Samsung smartwatch, you can build a seamless system. The only prerequisite is that all the devices need to be logged in with the same Samsung credentials.

After that, you can make the most of options like ‘Call & Text’ and ‘Continue apps on other devices.’ These help you have a seamless system. You can find the settings under Advanced settings.

There are some limitations, though. For example, only a few apps like Samsung Internet and Samsung Notes (see best Samsung Notes tips and tricks) are compatible for now.

8. Swipe for Split Screen

The One UI on the Galaxy Z Flip 4 also brings the advantage of a split screen. Because at the end of the day, you should put the tall screen to good use. It allows you to enable split screens with a simple gesture. You can use the screen to its full advantage and remove the Status bar and Navigation bar.

11 best samsung galaxy z flip 4 tips and tricks

And as you may have expected, these features are not enabled by default.

To do so, open the Settings app, navigate to Advanced settings, and select Labs. After that, toggle the switches for ‘Full screen in Split screen view’ and ‘Swipe for split screen.’

Swipe with two fingers from the bottom of the screen whenever you need to switch to a split screen. You can also check out the ‘Multi window for all apps’ option and even tweak the window size.

9. Flex Mode Panel

Another setting that you can turn on is the Flex mode panel. When enabled, you can use the top part of your phone’s screen when it’s in upright mode. Naturally, it allows you to view the screen conveniently when working or if you do not have the convenience of holding your phone. The best part is that the lower part of the screen lets you control the upper portion.

11 best samsung galaxy z flip 4 tips and tricks

Flex mode is not enabled by default, and you’ll need to choose the apps beforehand.

To do so, open the Settings app, tap on Advanced Settings, tap on Labs, and select the Flex mode panel.

Choose the apps that you want for this feature. For instance, we chose Google Chrome.

The Chrome appears on the top half, whereas the controls are on the bottom half. And when you unfold your phone, the browser will fill the screen.

10. Disable the Screenshot Toolbar

The screenshot toolbar is a nifty little tool. You can capture scrolling screenshots when needed. And at the same time, you can doodle and edit the images right from the tool.

However, this tool lingers on the screen for a little too long. And at times, it can be a bit annoying, especially if you do not take scrolling screenshots and the like. Thankfully, you can switch it off.

To do so, open the Settings app, select Advanced features and tap on ‘Screenshots and screen recorder’ option. After that, tap on the ‘Show toolbar after capturing’ option.

11. Show Charging Information

Another nifty trick for the Galaxy Z Flip 4 is Show charging information. As you may have guessed, this one gives an estimate of when the battery is full. When you step out or have a long way to go, you can calculate the time and plan accordingly.

All you need to do is head to the Display Settings, scroll down, and toggle the switch for Show charging information.
