Tips & Tricks

Don’t forget to enable the floating camera button on your Galaxy A (2017) smartphone!

The new Galaxy A (2017) devices offer an impressive feature set for their price tags, and the 16-megapixel selfie camera is perhaps one of the most notable attractions, at least on the Galaxy A5 and A7 (the A3, meanwhile, makes do with an 8-megapixel camera). Well, we thought we would remind you that should you have purchased either of the new Galaxy A handsets, you should enable the floating camera button from the camera app’s settings.

The floating camera button is an additional shutter button that you can move around anywhere inside the camera, so you can take fumbling with the default shutter button or the volume keys to take pictures out of the equation. The floating button can also be placed right next to the default shutter button, so you can have a larger overall button to press when taking pictures (anything who has taken selfies using their thumb to hit the shutter will know how this can really help).

This feature is also available on the Galaxy S8 and S8+, and we’re hoping Samsung will bring it to all devices powered by Nougat given they all have the same camera app. In case you haven’t already, don’t forget to check out our reviews of the Galaxy A5 (2017) and Galaxy A7 (2017) here and here. Also look forward to our review of the Galaxy A3 (2017) in the coming days.
