How to use Super Slow-Motion video
Shortly before Samsung unveiled its newest flagship, the company promised the Galaxy S9 would reinvent the camera. Along with a ton of other new camera features on the Galaxy S9, Super Slow-Motion was introduced. With Super Slow-Motion, you can capture video at an incredibly high frame rate (960 fps to be exact), creating Matrix-like video footage.
To use Super Slow-Motion, you need to open the Camera app. Swipe over to the Super Slow-Motion option above the viewfinder. You will be presented with two options: One will allow you to automatically begin recording at the slower frame rate when motion is detected within a small box on the screen, while the other allows you to manually control the image.
If you select the manual option, just tap the shutter button to begin recording. When you’re ready to capture the slow-motion footage, tap the three-button icon. Since the slow-motion footage is less than a second (0.2 seconds to be exact), you may want to press the three-button icon several times to capture footage in the same video.
Should you choose to try out the automatic mode, tap the auto mode at the bottom of the camera and make sure the object you want to capture in slow motion is in the defined box. Press the shutter button to start recording. You will see the box turn yellow when it is about to capture the clip. As with the manual mode, you can initiate slow-motion recording multiple times within the same video.
How to set up Intelligent Scan
While Samsung did make a number of upgrades to its camera hardware, don’t expect the latest flagship to have a facial identification feature that matches what you find on the iPhone X. With Samsung’s new Intelligent Scan feature you can unlock your phone using iris and facial data. Be warned, however, that the feature has more than its fair share of hiccups so you may want to set up an alternate authentication method.
If you want to give Intelligent Scan a try, tap Settings > Lock screen and security > Intelligent Scan. Enter your password, PIN, or pattern. Tap Continue. Select a lock screen option and then agree to the disclaimer. Press Continue two times.
First, you register your face by holding the phone 8 to 20 inches away and making sure it is centered in the alignment circle. Once registered, tap Continue. Finally, you register your irises by holding the phone 10 to 14 inches away and making sure each eye is centered in the necessary alignment circles.
To get the best data you will want to make sure you’re in a well-lit room without a lot of backlight. You also need to remove your glasses for the iris scan, and once set up you may not be able to authenticate with them on.
How to set up Secure Folder
If you have sensitive documents or photos you don’t want to share with everyone, the Samsung Galaxy S9 offers a feature called Secure Folder that allows you to store sensitive items in a private, secure folder.
Setting up Secure Folder takes seconds. Tap Settings > Lock Screen and Security > Secure Folder. Press Next > Start. Sign into your Samsung account and tap Confirm.
Next, you need to choose the best authentication method to access Secure Folder. If you’re using a PIN, password, or pattern to authenticate, you probably want to select something different than what you use to access your phone. Once you have entered your preferred authentication method, a Secure Folder will be set up and added to your home screen.
To use Secure Folder, simply tap the homepage icon. You’ll see options to add photos, apps, and files.
