This Samsung Galaxy S7 device seems to have it all: strong performance for everyday tasks, an amazing display, high-end cameras and it is also water resistant, but you must also make a few changes to make it feel like yours.

For example, you can choose to use groups to organize your contacts. Your phone comes with a few preloaded groups, that’s true, but I bet that the default options aren’t enough for you, so feel free to create a group for your new coworkers, for your old friends from high-school, for a team and so on with the help of the below options.

Groups are also ideal to find contacts in a blink of an eye, to send messages and if you ever change your mind and a group becomes no longer needed, then deleting it is as simple as it can get.

Let the steps from these procedures guide you:
