I've had my S7 Edge for over two years and I just learned so much more about the phone. Amazing!! Thank you for an excellent course. I learned a lot!

All very good. Would have been helpful to provide more real world examples of the speech commands within apps. Especially quickly adding contacts via speech to text. Managing contacts would be great as well. e.g. In business, organization of a prospect / quote / customer within contacts would have been most helpful. Scanning functions for documents, QR Codes, and business cards would also be a bonus.

Watching this course has really cleared up quite a few issues that I had in trying to find "what is where" and "how do I...". This is a very in depth course. The videos are really clear. You always see where the instructor is on his phone and can follow along, as each lecture contains a zoom in to his mobile. It is so much easier to watch someone accessing the same phone and using the features, etc., than trying to read a pdf of instructions. I am much more confident now in the use of my phone, even though I've had it for more than 12 months.
