Hi you are watching VisiHow and today we are going to show you how to adjust the sound on your Samsung Galaxy S5 or S5 Mini. There are several ways you can do this. One method is by pressing the volume button, up or down.
And now we have the sound mode, volume mode, ringtones, vibrations, vibrate when ringing, dialing keypad tone, touch sounds, screen lock sounds, sound when tapped, call, messages, email, S Planner, and then advanced: music effects.
I can choose how I want my vibrations. Basic call vibration, a heartbeat vibration, then a jingle bell vibration, then we have a ticktock vibration, waltz, and zig-zig-zig. Basic call works for me, so that's what I'm going to keep.
Do I want the phone vibrating when ringing? Usually, yes, I do. It does use a little more battery, but not much. Dialing keypad tone, do I want the phone to beep when I'm dialing keypads? It's either a no or yes. I like it to make little beeps when I'm pressing keypad buttons, it let's me know that I'm actually pressing the buttons. Sometimes, I might not get some feedback and that bothers me. Touch sounds, you play sounds when making screen selections. Again, like dialing the keypad, I like that, because again, it might be noisy outside, you may not know that you've done something.
Screen lock sound, so you can have a sound when locking the screen or unlocking the screen
This is good for two reasons. One, if you have a simple lock pattern, and you actually unlock your phone in your pocket, it is going to make some noise which can prevent you from accidentally calling your boss, or your significant other when maybe you didn't want to call them.
When someone gets a phone call and I have to listen to an entire song. Are you going to answer your phone? And they say, oh, I love this part of the song. Well, that's great, you have a music feature on your phone. Your phone should be ringing. Maybe I'm a little old fashioned, probably I'm a little old-fashioned, but, I'm not going to subject you to listening to me cycle through the tones until I find one that actually sounds like a phone to me. Or a canary, I did kind of like that. So let's go back from ringtones.
