Best S Pen Tips and Tricks for Samsung S22 Ultra
Unlock your phone with S Pen
Personally, I’m tired of unlocking phones with Fingerprints and sometimes Face IDs too. It requires precision and trusts me, nobody wants to be that precise in life.

Whether you’re reading something or habituated with S Pen, this will definitely help you out.

Wait, wait, wait! There are some downsides of this feature that you should definitely know like you cannot unlock the phone with S Pen if it is disconnected from the phone. If your phone is lying unused for 2 minutes or more, S Pen won’t unlock the phone.
Capture Selective Screenshots
It is always a pain in the head capturing screenshots and cropping the unnecessary part of it and then sharing. What if you’re allowed to capture a particular area of the screenshot? This will eliminate the process of cropping and saving the screenshot, instead, directly take selective screenshots and share.

Switch Camera Modes
Till now everyone is aware that S Pen can capture Selfies and Photos with ease. However, this isn’t the end, there’s much more we can accomplish with S Pen. For that Air Actions needs to be enabled.

Whether you’re College Student, Employee or Businessman, we’re not that powerful enough to remember each and every word of mouth for a long time. To overcome this, we do note down things on paper or Notes app, or in other third-party apps. With S Pen, you can anytime jot down the notes without unlocking the phone or opening any app. All you have to do is take out the S Pen and start noting down.
- Go to the Settings app > Advanced features > S Pen. Enable Screen off memo option.

Translate Using S Pen
This is one of the coolest features to have if you love to visit different countries or are interested in learning new languages and cultures. No need to open any Translating app or Google, just highlight the text that you want to translate and take out and tap on the Translate option from the S Pen Smart menu. To change translation language, select it from the menu bar that appears once you select the Translate option from Smart Menu.
Add App Thumbnail
You might don’t want to clutter the home screen with a massive Thumbnail, but you also don’t want to miss important tasks that could change your life, isn’t it? That’s why, we recommend learning this trick, but use it when needed. Simply, open the app or anything that you want to save as Thumbnail, take out S Pen, and select the Glance button (looks like Eye with green background).
At a time, you can only have one Glance, and that’s the biggest limitation of this feature. To remove Glance from the home screen, touch and hold and drag it to the Remove option when appears on the screen.
