Recently, Samsung published a video that guides Galaxy S23 Ultra users on how to use Astrophoto and AstroHyperlapse features. The video is featured by professional landscape photographer Michael Shainblum and guides you to capture incredible night sky photos and star trail hyperlapse videos


In order to capture Astrophoto using the Galaxy S23 Ultra, you are going to want a sturdy place to position your camera during the long exposure. The photographer recommends using a tripod as well as keeping a headlamp so you can see in the dark.

Now, download the Samsung Expert RAW app through the Galaxy Store, it’s free. Once your device is on the tripod and aimed at the sky, open Expert RAW. From here you can do some test shots to see if you have the right composition.

Once you’ve got the right composition, head up to the settings. Make sure you’re saving your pictures in RAW and enable special photo options. This allows you to use the Astrophoto mode, which uses advanced AI segmentation and multi-frame processing to get the best results out of the night sky.

This mode even pinpoints the location of astral bodies like planets and constellations. For duration, choose 10 minutes for the best possible results but if you do not have time, 4 minutes still works great. You can use any mode, while the photographer used the wide lens and set focus to 0.9 to capture sharp stars.

  • Now, just tap the shutter button and check out how awesome these results are.

Hidden Samsung trick to boost Internet speed on your Galaxy device



Samsung Internet Speed

Internet has become an essential thing in the modern era. Today most people carry a mobile with good internet speed as soon as they wake up in the morning so that they can get the latest information around the world. If you use any Samsung device and the internet speed is slow then you can boost it.

Many times it happens that even after having a data package, the internet does not run at a satisfactory speed, which delays our work. One of the reasons for this is that some functions are enabled in our Samsung smartphones that we do not need.

So in order to increase the internet speed on your Samsung Galaxy smartphone, all you have to do is disable them. Let’s see how to do this.

Until the One UI 5.0, there’s no way to customize the folder of saved screenshots. Though, a bit late, Samsung officially brought the ability to change the folder where screenshots and screen recordings are saved, thanks to the new One UI 5.1 update.

Samsung’s One UI saves screenshots and screen recordings in the DCIM folder by default. Most users wanted the ability to customize the screenshots storage folder, and the new One UI 5.1 update makes it possible on Galaxy devices. If you want to know how to change location, follow the steps given below:

  • For Screenshots,
    • Tap the “Save screenshots in” option
