Set Sleep Timer on Android

Sometimes you just want a bigger screen. Yeah, the screen on the Galaxy S4 is nice, but not if, say, more than one person wants to watch a video, for example. Fear not, for there are a few ways to hook your S4 up to a bigger screen. If you have a Samsung TV or you happen to own an AllShare Cast dongle, the easiest way is to simply use the built-in screen mirroring feature. Now all you need to do is wait for it to scan and find your devices.

The less laggy option is to use MHL. Samsung sells an official adapter for the S4. The Samsung Galaxy S4 includes two different options for controlling who can contact you and when. With Blocking Mode on, you can disable incoming calls, notifications, the alarm, and the LED indicator.

Either turn the option on manually or set it to disable communications between certain hours. If you want to deal with one specific number, call rejection might be a better option. The most common way to set it up is to use the Auto reject list. If you want, you can have the S4 automatically send a message to the person explaining why their call was rejected.

Now for the real fun, lock your device and head to the lock screen to check it out. By swiping near the top of the screen you can now get to the camera widget located to the right, or add your own widgets on the left. Everything from communication notifications to Gmail to Google Now is available. First, open up the camera app and select the settings icon at the top of the screen.

Now select the icon that looks like a small video camera to bring up the video options. This allows you to select how slow or fast the video is. Fast motion can go 2x, 4x or 8x normal speed. Fun is fun, right? Adapt Sound. Before I used it, I assumed it was a feature like those you see on televisions: Movie mode, Music mode, etc.

I was wrong. Adapt Sound is a feature that tests your hearing and headphones to tune its audio to focus on frequencies you can actually hear. Now scroll all the way to the bottom to find Adapt Sound. Plug in your headphones and start the test. Basically all it does is play a series of tones to test what frequencies you can hear, and whether you hear better out of one ear than the other.

Going through the whole test takes about a minute. Personally I found that audio sounded a bit clearer and more detailed with Adapt Sound turned on. Your mileage may vary.

While, most of the time I prefer to have control of the screen brightness, there actually is a reason for using this feature on the Galaxy S4. Do you have a favorite tip we mentioned?
