In this video we continue the quick tip series for the Galaxy S6. Today's tip is accessing the Galaxy S6 camera. The quick camera launch feature is one of my favorite features. I have not missed a moment with the S6. Simply pull the phone out of your pocket and double tap the home button. This works from the homescreen, or the lockscreen. You can access the camera from the lockscreen using the double tap, but the rest of your phone will still be inaccessible until you enter your pin. Samsung has finally gotten it right with these features!

Touchwiz happens to be lighter than its ever been, but it is even lighter when you use the first ever debloated Rom for the Galaxy S6! "XtreStoLite" is the lightest Touchwiz you will ever see. It weighs in at only 672MB. The rom is developed by developer "Sculk" and is based on the latest OCG Lollipop 5.0.2 firmware. This is the Pure Edition Odexed with 100% original un-modified files. This is described as an AOSP like rom with the touchwiz launcher and UI.

More than 1.5GB has been deleted from the stock rom freeing up some precious storage space. This rom does include the samsung keyboard, gallery, camera, dialer, messages, music, alarm, and calculator apps. Root is fully integrated. Knox is fully removed. Other features include native call recording, and optional CSC tweaks. Grab this Rom from the link below.

-Shutter Sound Switch
-Manual rotation option in gallery

-Exit buttons in default browser
-2nd symbol keys on stock keyboard

Touchwiz is full of awesome little features on the Galaxy S6. I can't remember feeling this happy about using Touchwiz ever. One great new feature of the Galaxy S6 is one that you would normally need to grab a custom launcher to apply. With the S6 TW launcher you can now change your app grid size which will allow for more apps on the homescreen.

To Change Grid Size:

-Pinch homescreen, or long press a blank space to launch the launcher settings.
-You will see options to change the grid size
-Choose one of the three options 4x4, 4x5, or 5x5
-Once size is selected widgets will pull to a corner which brings in more space for apps!

The Galaxy S6 is all the rage, but if your S4 isn't broke why fix it right? While you may not be upgrading your phone just yet you may still want to give it a fresh new look and feel. Hyperdrive is one of the most popular Touchwiz based roms around for the Galaxy S4 and they have just updated it to RLS21. Developer "sbreen94" has been perfecting this rom little by little over the past 20 builds, and he is closer than ever with the latest build!

The Rom features Galaxy S5 and Note 4 features, and is based on NC5 firmware. This is Android 4.4.2 with TouchWiz. This also includes the Aroma installer which allows you to pick and chose exactly the apps that you would like installed. This works with Verizon, Tmobile, and ATT. There are all kinds of customizations included here. You can customize statusbar, battery, pulldown, colors, lockscreen, and more. The features list is too long to list here. Grab the rom from the link below.

It looks like current and future Android Wear devices will be getting some cool new abilities. Google just announced a new Android Wear update that boosts the capabilities with several new features. A few of them will work on existing devices, but one will require future devices with the proper hardware built in. Here's what Google added:
  • Always-on screen, always-on apps
  • Wi-Fi support
  • Simpler, faster, and more smiley
Obviously, the Wi-Fi support requires there to be a Wi-Fi radio present in the hardware to function. The other two upgrades seem poised to make current devices even better already. Still, the Wi-Fi support is pretty exciting. The idea that you will be able to use your Android Wear smartwatch even if you forget your smartphone, is pretty handy.

Here's an interesting bit of tech history that never came to be. According to sources at Bloomberg, Google almost bought Tesla from Elon Musk in 2013. Supposedly, Tesla was on the verge of bankruptcy, and Elon Musk was courting Google for a buyout in which he would stay on to run things. Apparently, Musk was willing to sell the company to Google for $6 Billion dollars, plus another $5 Billion in capital for factory expansions. Here's a quote with more of the details,
Before even going to Page, Musk fired a bunch of senior level executives and promoted some hungry junior employees to help revitalize things and rebuild Tesla's image by improving sales, repair...

It looks like Google has taken their Google Wallet service to a new level of credibility and safety. This morning a new report from Yahoo! News indicated we now have full support from the FDIC (Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation) for Google Wallet. This means any money you put in your Google Wallet account is now insured by the Federal Government for up $250,000 US dollars in the unlikely event Google ever goes bankrupt. The story has yet to be confirmed officially from Google, but we expect that to happen sometime soon.

This story got us to wondering... how many of our members actually use Google Wallet? Sound off in this thread and let us know if you use Google Wallet, and, if so, do you use it a little or a lot?
