How to Use Samsung Galaxy S6 Camera Quick Launch Feature

Samsung Galaxy S6 is a beautiful phone that captured our attention more than once. We simply love its new look and even more than that, we discovered that Samsung has worked hard to add handy shortcuts and extra features on its new device. Some of them are from previous Galaxy S phones, while others are additions or coming here courtesy of the most recent Lollipop-flavored Android release. Do you want to discover more about your handset as well?

Camera is one of the most frequently used features on most devices these days, so this is why we have a special guide for you and for your Galaxy S6. So, launching the camera app quickly is a must, but not everyone knows how to do that. In old Symbian based smartphones, we had a dedicated camera button to launch the camera quickly, but the handsets released in the last few years do not have such a hardware button dedicated for camera any longer.

Should this mean that there is no way for you to enjoy that? Not at all! In Galaxy S6, Samsung used the home button as camera button by double tapping it. This is usually referred to as Samsung Galaxy S6 camera quick launch and here we have more details for this device’s owners.

Is Samsung’s Galaxy S6 camera quick launch draining your battery?
