Disable Samsung GOS Game Optimizing Service

The company confirmed a software update will soon be released to the affected models, equipping an option to change the apps’ priority for Game Optimizing Service. Well, until then? No need to worry, we are here with a temporary solution to the apps throttling and GOS.

You may have tried to disable the Game Optimizing Service app alongside Game Launcher through device Settings but it won’t work at all. In order to disable the GOS effectively, you need to follow the steps given below that can be done by a third-party app called NetGuard.

How to disable Samsung GOS (apps throttling)

Simply, open Google Play Store, search NetGuard and download & install the app entitled “NetGuard – no-root firewall”.

Once done, open NetGuard, tap on the three dots to expand additional options and hit the Settings, followed by Advanced options.

From here, enable the NetGuard to list system apps by tapping on the toggle on top. Now, head return for the app’s home page and search “Game” by the in-app search tool.

Following the query, NetGuard will show you three services namely:

  1. Game Booster,
  2. Game Launcher, and
  3. Game Optimizing Service.

One by one, clear the apps’ data by opening their additional Storage settings inside the App info. Now, it’s time to ditch their network connectivity by Wi-Fi and Cellular by tapping on the toggles placed along with them.

Alright! Now, you need to go back from the search function and hit the main toggle to enable the NetGuard app by allowing needed permissions.

You can now see that NetGuard has disabled the internet connectivity of three apps related to the Games performance. Well, the procedure has not finished yet.

While the NetGuard is now forcing the Game apps trio to get the network connectivity, they will be able to do so again, once the user restarts the smartphone.

To wholly disable the GOS, you need to proceed with the same steps of Clear data, which is mentioned three paras above.

Everything is perfect now! Just follow this tricky step of rebooting the device after disconnecting it from Wi-Fi or cellular network so those three apps can be disconnected from Samsung’s server.

After restarting the phone without internet connectivity, open the NetGuard once again and tap the toggle to disable it and finally tap again to enable.

You can now even connect to the internet through Cellular or Wi-Fi, while the NetGuard notifier will show you the prompt blocking connectivity of three apps that are Game Booster, Game Launcher, and Game Optimizing Service.

Galaxy AI brings smart Composer feature to Samsung Keyboard

Published

on

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6

Samsung announced the new Galaxy AI Composer feature for the Samsung Keyboard. The feature is initially available for Galaxy Z Flip 6 and Z Fold 6 smartphones. We expect it to arrive on older Galaxy AI-supported devices later this year.

Galaxy AI Composer feature is added to the Samsung Keyboard app. Galaxy users can easily generate suggested text based on simple keywords for email and supported media apps. The feature is quite smart and uses advanced machine learning and AI capabilities to compose text.

For instance, it will offer you a social media caption based on the tone you often use. There’s no need to worry about privacy as it only analyzes data from your previous public posts. Once done, it delivers relevant content that you may use without any modification.

Notably, Composer is a cloud-processing-based AI feature. It requires your Galaxy handset to be connected with a stable network connection and a Samsung Account login. Currently, it’s available in a limited number of languages with future expansion likely.

Apart from this, Galaxy AI also brings Sketch to Image and PDF Overlay Translation features. The former allows you to create artistic images by drawing simple sketches in the Notes app. The latter makes it possible to translate the entire PDF in real time without switching apps.

The Korean tech giant finally launched new Galaxy Z Flip 6 and Z Fold 6 smartphones, Galaxy Buds 3 and Buds 3 Pro earbuds, Galaxy Watch 7 and Watch Ultra smartwatches as well as the Galaxy Ring. One UI 6.1.1 and One UI 6 Watch have many new features for Samsung consumers.

One UI 7 (Android 15) Beta Soon? Galaxy S24, S23 and S22 surfaced so far

Published

on

Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra S Pen

One UI 7 Beta could be coming soon as Samsung’s progressing too fast with Android 15. So far, the Galaxy S24+, Galaxy S23 Ultra, and Galaxy S22 spotted running Android 15 (probably One UI 7 Beta). It indicates that the Beta Program might kick off soon.

Over the past few weeks, we’ve seen multiple test firmware builds on the server. The progress was also too fast, which now reached the benchmark state. Now, Galaxy flagships running the new OS are being tested on Geekbench to check performance scores.

Earlier, the Galaxy S24+ benchmarked with One UI 7 firmware. Later on, the Galaxy S23 Ultra joined the party with the new skin, followed by the Galaxy S22 today. The S22 and S23 Ultra are Snapdragon variants while the S24+ boasted Exynos 2400 SoC.

Geekbench test scores can’t be considered final performance. The firmware installed on the devices is in a very early stage. The developers will further optimize the new software through internal testing before kicking off the Public Beta.

Samsung’s One UI Beta builds can be used by general users too. The firmware doesn’t have major problems like bricking the phone entirely or major performance downgrades. The program allows you to have the new software on your phone months ahead of release.

The One UI 7 will be based on Android 15 operating system. Google is set to introduce the Pixel 9 series in August this year. The new OS might also be formally released as it gained the Platform Stability with Beta 3. We guess the Oen UI Beta could launch in early or mid-August.

The Galaxy S22 series is unlikely to enter the Beta Program in some markets like Germany. However, the Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S23 series could be invited for Beta in 7 markets. Some mid-range and budget Galaxy A/M/F phones are also likely to join the Beta later this year.

Samsung Galaxy Ring compatibility

Samsung Galaxy Ring may be pricier than the current Ring wearables in the market. The company is expected to release its first Ring wearable gadget on July 10 in Paris. Dealabs got some info regarding the price of Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Ring in France.

According to the info, the Galaxy Ring could start at €449 in France. The product will likely be available to customers as of July 19 in 13 sizes and 3 colors. The Galaxy Ring could be priced around $500 in the United States based on leaked France pricing.

Oura Ring starts at $299 while RingConn rings are available as low as $279. Samsung’s pricing strategy for Galaxy Ring is not aggressive at all. It seems a method to put the Ring form factor in an ultra-premium wearable segment apart from the R&D investment focus.

To address the sizing concern, Samsung is said to offer a Ring sizing kit. Consumers who are interested in the Galaxy Ring would be able to get a sizing kit delivered. It will help them figure out the Ring size to be ordered to prevent post-delivery sizing issues.

At the Unpacked event, Samsung will launch the Galaxy Z Flip 6 and Z Fold 6 foldable phones. New smartwatches including the Galaxy Watch 7 and Galaxy Watch Ultra are also coming. After two years, the new premium earbuds – Galaxy Buds 3 and Buds 3 Pro also launching.

You can pre-reserve the new Galaxy and get a $50 Samsung Credit and many exciting savings. When you pre-order any of the upcoming products, multiple benefits will be offered. You will not only get Instant Samsung Credit but also savings of up to $1500.
