In August 2019, Samsung introduced its Galaxy Note 10 to the world, which immediately became one of the best phones of the year. We were able to test the Galaxy Note 10 to give you first impressions, a touchdown that reaffirmed the high expectations around Samsung's king terminal.
The characteristics of the Galaxy Note 10 are very good, but can be further improved using some very simple tricks. Specifically, let's talk about audio. Yes, the sound of your Galaxy Note 10 is good, but you should know that there are several functions introduced by Samsung that can take you to ultra high quality.RELATED
9 tricks to improve the audio on the Samsung Galaxy Note 10
Use the UHQ optimizer
This function of the Galaxy Note 10 is very useful for improving sound quality when you are using wired headphones. Therefore, it should be noted that it only works when they are connected. Basically, what the optimizer does is add more data to the file so that it plays in ultra high quality (UHQ), without actually modifying it.
To enable it, go to Settings> Sounds and vibration> Advanced sound settings> Sound quality and effects> UHQ Optimizer and select the second option, Bit Enhancement and Bandwidth, which will make the audio sound much better when you are using the headphones.
Enable the Dolby Atmos option
One of Samsung's most prominent audio features is Dolby Atmos, which offers you cinema-quality surround sound. As a summary, what this technology does is adjust the different sounds to offer you the best immersive experience. This option, present in the most recent terminals of the firm, arrives at the Galaxy Note 10 with a novelty: you can also enable it specifically for games.
To take advantage of Dolby Atmos, go to Settings> Sounds and vibration> Advanced sound settings> Sound quality and effects and activate the option with your name. If your idea is to improve the audio while playing, enable the Dolby Atmos for games option.
Use a USB DAC with headphones
One of the details that you may have missed the Samsung Galaxy Galaxy Note 10 is that it lacks a headphone port. However, you can turn this inconvenience into an advantage to further improve the sound you hear with your headphones. For example, you can use a USB DAC that will allow you to play files with greater bit depth and sample rate, that is, incredible audio quality.
Samsung has developed an application specifically for you to have more control over the phone's audio. To use it, you just have to download it from the Galaxy Store or the Google app store. Then open it to start modifying advanced sound settings, the app will show you some tips so you know how to do it.
Modify step volume
With the previous application, SoundAssistant, you can modify the necessary steps to increase or decrease the volume. In this way, you can choose how many times you must press the volume buttons so that it goes from 0% to 100%, and vice versa. The lower the number of the bar, the more presses you must make to go from one end of the volume to another. Next, we tell you how many steps you would configure with each level:
1: 150 steps
2: 75 steps
3: 50 steps
4: 38 steps
5: 30 steps
6: 25 steps
7: 21 steps
8: 19 steps
9: 17 steps
10: 15 steps
Change stereo channels
Your Samsung Galaxy Note 10 also allows you to change the left and right channels of your headphones, if you need it. Again, SoundAssistant is the application that allows you to make this type of configuration modification. In the Advanced Settings section, enable the Invert stereo option so that the audio outputs of your headphones are reversed.
Make use of the equalizer
Samsung has always been constant in introducing its own sound equalizer in its smartphones. Why not use it to adapt the audio to your preferences? Go to Settings> Sounds and vibration> Advanced sound settings> Sound quality and effects> Equalizer.
This will allow you to access the own menu of the sound tool of your Galaxy Note 10, with six default modes: Normal, Pop, Classic, Jack, Rock and Custom, which allows you to manually modify the settings. If you prefer the phone to adjust them for you, I recommend you try the default modes until you find the one that best suits your sound preferences.
Individually control the volume of apps
We do not always have the same interest in listening to the sound of some apps as that of others. With the SoundAssistant individual app volumes option, you can select the applications whose sound you want to modify to give preference to some apps over others. But there is a negative detail in this function, and you will be able to control the volume only from SoundAssistant.
So that this is not the case, and you can modify the sound whenever the app is open, enable the floating button so that the Sound Assistant appears on the screen whenever you adjust the volume. In this way, you can individually control the volume of the apps without having to enter SoundAssistant.
Create a custom sound profile
Finally, we recommend the use of the Adapt Sound function, essential in Samsung phones in recent years. If you go to Settings> Sounds and vibration> Advanced sound settings> Effects and sound quality, you will find an option called Adapt Sound, with different profiles that will adapt the sound of the Galaxy Note 10 depending on your age.
Those default modes are interesting, but the best thing is that you create your own custom sound profile. Click on this option to begin the process, which will take you to a test in which you will have to say whether or not you hear several beeps. That way, the phone will know how to adapt the sound of your profile to be the best for calls, music and videos.
When you finish, give the profile you want and save it so that it is enabled. Easy and fast, you do not need more to adapt the sound of your Samsung Galaxy Note 10. If you add the rest of the tricks that make up this article, you can listen to music or watch movies with the best audio quality.
