Samsung’s latest Galaxy S22 series devices come with some significant progress that most Galaxy users like in their cameras. We’re talking about Pro mode or Pro-photography level qualities, which allow you to take some amazing photos, at least Samsung guarantees.
The Galaxy S22 Ultra is built with a 2.4um pixel sensor – Samsung’s largest pixel sensor to date, allowing its camera lens to capture more daylight and data while optimizing the brightness and detail of your video clips.
Additionally, video auto framing ensures that your camera always captures what you want, whether it is one person or ten. With zooming capabilities that keep you 100x closer to the action, the Galaxy S22 Ultra is not only Samsung’s most powerful camera, it’s also one of the smartest.
With the S22 Ultra’s powerful intelligent camera capabilities, your phone weighs more, so you can always capture stunning photos and videos in any light. Whether you are an avid or professional photographer, the Galaxy S22 Ultra has all the tools you need to capture a beautiful shot every time.
Similar to a DSLR camera, you can brighten or dim your photos with ISO settings and shutter speeds, adjust the white balance to make your photos look warmer or cooler, and keep your images exactly the same. You can manually focus on what you want.
With the Epic Nightography combination of software and hardware, you can capture your favorite moments even when shooting in the dark of night.

Samsung One UI 4.1: Multi window, and expectations from the upcoming UI!
Samsung One UI 4.1 multi-window lets you run two applications at the same time in the split-screen view and at the same time, you can run the multiple apps in a pop-up view.
Now expectations are growing from the upcoming One UI 5 multi-window to have some more plus features which could offer the smartphone user some more increased functionality.
One UI 5 is going to come any time but still see the same multi-window function that has been introduced at the time of One UI 1.5, and since then Samsung has just done a few customizations to its multiwindow functionality and interface.
Expectations from the upcoming multi-window?
I am bored, seeing the same interface for a year, though the split-screen and pop-up are very useful features, users have lots of expectations from them. Let us discuss some of them.
Support for all applications, Samsung users are complaining that all the applications do not support the split-screen or pop-up view. So I think the company should work on increasing app support.
Every time we need to choose the application for the split-screen or pop-up view, it would be even better if the multiwindow user interface facilitates the opening of all the recent windows in split or popup mode.
According to me, the split-screen mode should be scalable, which could facilitate the user to scroll, drag, and extend the split-screen view as needed by the smartphone user. At present UI function is not fully scalable.
It would be a lot better if we can keep the recent unused app at the top or side of the screen and can close or open them with one touch or swipe. Samsung needs to work more on multi-window touch gestures, at times the repetitive actions irritate a lot and really feel annoying. Let us see whether the future One UI 5 could fulfill the user expectations or not.
Samsung One UI 4.1, Split-screen view, here is how to launch apps from the Edge panel?
Samsung One UI 4.1 Split screen is the burning topic for debate on online platforms these days. It would be better if this split-screen facilitates viewing not only two but three to four applications on the screen at an instant in a single time.
How to launch the Split screen view?
- First, tap on the recent button to open the list of recently used apps
- Then swipe left or right, tap on the app’s icon, and then tap Open in the split-screen view
- On the app list, you can select another app to launch.
How to launch the apps from the edge panel?
- While you are on the current working application, drag the edge panel handle towards the center of the screen.
- Tap and hold an app, drag it to the left, and then drop it where Drop here to open appears. By doing this your selected app will launch in a split-screen view.
You are eligible to launch an application in the split-screen view just by tapping it once. Tap on the three horizontal dots and then tap on the option Open in split-screen. If you click on show recent apps, switch to activate them, and now you are ready to launch recently used apps in the split-screen view from the Edge panel.
How to add app pairs?
Add frequently used apps to the Edge panel to launch them together, in a split-screen view with a single tap. This seems to be an extraordinary work just for nothing.
- In the split-screen view, tap the circles between the app windows.
- Tap on Plus Sign, and the apps that you are using in the split-screen view will be saved on the Edge panel as an app pair.
However, to adjust the window size you can drag the circles between the app window. When you drag the circle between the window to the app screen the window will be maximized. The same is the case with the pop-up view.
