How to use your smartphone as a Wi-Fi hotspot

February 7 2014 , Written by Samsung Published on #Android Tips

How many times have you been caught with the need to do something on your laptop when you're out and about, but you don't want to drop five bucks for a coffee to suck up some ''free'' Wi-Fi? The solution is simple: just use your phone as a wireless router and share your phone's data plan with your laptop or tablet or even desktop computer. I've got a Nexus 5 so that's what I'll use for this example, but of course, many other phones are capable of operating as a portable Wi-Fi hotspot – the layout and options may just be a little different.

How to use your smartphone as a Wi-Fi hotspot

As unlimited data plans and LTE become more common and we lead increasingly mobile lives, it's good to know a solid internet connection for your laptop is never further away than your pocket. It's surprisingly simple to set up, and once you've used it a couple of times you'll wonder why you ever thought an actual Wi-Fi hotspot was ever necessary.

How to use your smartphone as a Wi-Fi hotspot

Just go to Settings > More > Tethering and Portable Hotspot. Here you'll find a bunch of options you've probably never looked at before. The first entry, USB Tethering allows you to use your Nexus 5's data connection with a USB cable. This means you can charge your phone at the same time as sharing a stable data connection with, say, your laptop. It will most likely be grayed out but when you connect your phone to another device or computer via USB, it'll become available.

How to use your smartphone as a Wi-Fi hotspot

At the bottom, there's Bluetooth Tethering, which is basically the same thing as above, but using Bluetooth to connect instead. Of course, these kinds of tethering also allow you to transfer data and other files over the USB or Bluetooth connection. Naturally, in the second instance you'll need Bluetooth switched on and paired to another device to share your internet via this connection type.

How to use your smartphone as a Wi-Fi hotspot

In the middle are the main events: Portable Wi-Fi Hotspot and Set Up Wi-Fi Hotspot. If you don't want to use the default setup (or have no idea what the portable hotspot will even be called), then you'll want to go into Set Up Wi-Fi Hotspot first. The default values are AndroidAP with a password you can write down to share with another device. You can rename the connection or change the password however you like. Once you've got your Wi-Fi Hotspot set up, just tap that other check box next to Portable Wi-Fi Hotspot and share away. Simply look for that network name in your other device's Wi-Fi connections list and log on.

How to use your smartphone as a Wi-Fi hotspot

Keep in mind that not everyone has an unlimited data plan and using a laptop on a mobile data plan can chew through it very quickly, as your laptop will not be using the mobile versions of the websites you visit, so be very wary and only use your phone as a portable hotspot when it's really necessary. Five bucks for a coffee isn't that bad after all when you compare it to excess data charges from your carrier.

Have you used your smartphone as a Wi-Fi hotspot? Did you even know you could do it?

Choose the right Samsung Galaxy S4

July 12 2013 , Written by Samsung Published on #Android Tips

With the Samsung Galaxy S4 is hit on sale around the world, Samsung constantly releases various verison of Samsung Galaxy S4 in a short time.

So far, there are at least five Samsung Galaxy S4 version which may make you hard to distinguish and chiose. Here I would like to do a brief introdution for every version of Samsung Galaxy S4

1.Samsung Galaxy S4 Google Editon

This verison was release in Google I/O developers' conference last month.

2.Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini

Look back to the older flagship handset of Samsung, such as Galaxy S3, Galaxy Note2, etc, they all have a cheaper, smaller version, which are named MIni version. No exception for Galaxy S4, a mini verison will be released.

As a mini version, Galaxy S4 mini will be shorter and thicker and wider than the normal version, but the apperance is the same. I think we will focus on the hardware and sofware configuration. There is no doubt that the mini verison won't be high-tech as Galaxy S4, only 3G and dual-sim make it weighter.

The phone's screen quality is perhaps the first place you'll really notice the hardware differences between the Galaxy S4 and its little cousin. Don't expect the S4 Mini's 4.3-inch qHD Super AMOLED display to look as sharp at 960x540 pixels as does the Galaxy S4's 1,920x1,080-pixel resolution on its 5-inch screen.

There is no many different in OS and feature, S4 mini runs on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean customized with TouchWiz. With TouchWiz comes a mountain of software embellishments, like more one-touch system settings in the notifications pull-down and options like Air View, which produces an onscreen cursor when you wag your finger close to the screen.
