It can be difficult to get used to a new phone, especially if you’ve just switched from one brand of phone to another. Having to learn a whole new experience can be daunting – especially if you’re not used to smartphones. Thankfully, picking up a phone call on an S10e is quite easy! Here is how it works:
When you receive a call, the call alert will take up the entire screen if the phone was locked. If it wasn’t, you’ll instead see a window at the top of your screen with either the number or the name of your contact, as well as options to pick up or decline.
Near the top of the screen, you’ll see information as to who is calling, a number or a name if you have the contact saved. Near the bottom left of the phone screen will be a green circle with a phone symbol in it, facing up at an angle. Tap and swipe the left button to answer the call. As you do so, a circle in the background will appear and get bigger. If you want to decline the call instead, tap and swipe the Red circle with the phone symbol facing down, in the bottom right corner of the call alert.
Tip: Depending on your theme, the colours and backgrounds of the buttons may be slightly different, but they will always be in the same location.
Once the call is connected, you will see the standard call options that will allow you to: add another person to the call, put the call on hold, play the call audio through a Bluetooth device if you’re connected to one, enable speaker mode, mute your microphone and show your phone keypad respectively. Finally, once your call is complete, tap the red icon with the phone facing down, in the bottom centre of the screen to hang up – or wait for your conversation partner to do the same.
