    Next, we have the volume option
    .

  13. 13
    And it gives you the same screen that we have earlier, for our different sounds across the system
    .
    I'm going to go ahead and select cancel.

  15. 15
    You can adjust ringtone, the sound changes as I go down and up, when I go down all the way it changes to vibrate
    .

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No
  16. 16
    When I put the ringtone on vibrate, it also changes the notifications, and system sounds to vibrate
    .
    Adjust volume on galaxy s5.mp4~canvas130 012712.jpg
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No
  17. 17
    However, if I put notifications down, all the way down, it does not change the ringtone
    .
    The same for system sounds. So vibration is a master control. Music, video, games, and other media are affected differently than your ringtone. Just tap OK.

  18. 18
    Next, we have vibrations
    .
    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.

    If you like, you can actually create a vibration

  20. 20
    So tap, tap, tap, etc, and then press create pattern
    .
    Press stop.

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No
  21. 21
    Now I press play and this is my vibration pattern
    .
    I'm not going to save this because, I'm not terribly interested in creating a pattern.

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No
  23. 23
    Now, we'll do vibrate when ringing
    .
    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.

  24. 24
    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.

    Next, sound when tapped
    .
    This gives you the option to select whether or not there is a do-do sound.

    I like to repeat a message alert, let's say, every 10 minutes

    Vibrate is nice

    Notifications sound, I really dislike this little whistle that I have, but probably the rest of them are not that great either.

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No
  34. 34
    And there we go , I have a canary in my pocket when I get messages
    .
    You can go back, you can do the same thing, just tap call, and you can change the tones here.

    Whether you want them, how you want them, what type of ringtone that you are going to have, for which phone line, so if I go to SIM 2, over the horizon, is my current ringtone
    .

    For me, personally, that's extremely irritating
    .
    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.

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No
  38. 38
    Back again from ringtones and keypad tones
    .
    Adjust volume on galaxy s5.mp4~canvas385 644941.jpg
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No
  39. 39
    You can also personalize call sounds
    .

  40. 40
    In call sound equalizer, and adapt the sound, you can pick a sound that works for you
    .
    Adjust volume on galaxy s5.mp4~canvas392 941949.jpg
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No
  41. 41
    So you can set this up, and you can choose what works for you and how you like it
    .
    However, this is another video.

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No
  42. 42
    We'll get back to that later
    .
    In call sound EQ, the same situation, you can choose how you want it to be. So soft sound, clear, adaptable sound.

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No
  43. 43
    Again, these two things, we'll touch base on those in another video
    .
    So back to call.

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No
  44. 44
    The same thing applies to e-mail
    .
    You can choose your e-mail settings. Now, at the moment, Samsung is telling me I have no e-mail set up. I'm not going to set that up, so I'll hit cancel.

  45. 45
    The same thing for S-Planner, I have S-Planner, but I'm not actually using it at the moment
    .
    Once I set that up, we'll do a tutorial on that as well.

    For now, you can choose the alert type, pop-up, status bar notifications, is it going to make noise, or is it not going to make noise
    .

    These are all things that are generally going to be specific to you
    .
    Music effects is our last one. So, the music for the phone, you have two options, you have SoundAlive, and MusicFX.
