How To Set Up Galaxy S6 For One-Handed Use

Both of the new Samsung flagship smartphones, the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge feature a 5.1-inch screen. For some, this is a large screen and hard to use the Galaxy S6 with one hand. The good news is that there is a way to use the Galaxy S6 with one hand to make things easy. The new Android Lollipop  5.0 software features something called TouchWiz that can help out.

TouchWiz has a feature that makes one-handed use of the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 easier to use without having to fumble with the smartphone or use two hands on the Galaxy S6. Below are the instructions on who to enable and turn on the  more comfortable and less awkward. Here’s how to enable and start using the features on the Galaxy S6 for one handed use.

How to toggle One-Handed Operation on and off:

  1. Enable One-handed operation, following the directions above.
  2. At the top right corner of the screen, select the Expand button to be able to return to the normal screen size again.
  3. In order to re-enable One-handed operation, simply slide your thumb from the side of the screen to the middle and back again in one motion.
