This covers a lot of things quite well, but it is lacking an index at the back, so you can't look up anything by name. You can find chapters on the keyboard, but it's frustrating not to be able to go to an index by keyword.
Extremely comprehensive but at the same time really easy to read and flip through to find exactly what you want to do with your S7. I have the Edge and there's a whole chapter dedicated to that feature. Highly recommend
This book has been very good helping me run my Galaxy S7, showing me not only how to do something but what to do if it doesn't work. It covers a wide range of topics and it even lists some apps that are great to use. I do learn by just playing with the phone but I like to know what I should do and why that is why I like books to help me along while learning a new piece of technology.
II am a 73-year old non-tech-savvy man who recently made the transition from a Droid Maxx to the Galaxy S7. I'm very glad I did. If it hadn't been for this book, it would have taken much longer to be able to get the maximum benefit from my Galaxy. While the most basic operations are fairly intuitive, there are a lot of features that aren't--and you just have to learn them. The only problem I found with this book is the lack of an index. A few times I ran into questions or problems that I ended up using other source material for but, by and large, the book was extremely helpful. You can access a user guide online from the Samsung website, but I did not print it off because it is so many pages. However, I keep the website's user guide open on my desktop to use as a secondary source. Also, a couple of times I went to youtube and did a "how to" search. If you're making the transition from an older droid to the Galaxy S7, using this book will make the change much easier for you. I recommend it. At one point I talked with a Verizon employee who told me that she had just changed to the Galaxy S 7. She said, "I'm pretty tech savvy and it took me a month to learn the features on the Galaxy." She obviously didn't have this book!. It only took me a few days, thanks to Halbert's book, a few looks at the online guide, and a couple of youtube videos.
Since my Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge didn't come with a manual, I bought this book. The Samsung manual is available online, but at 200+ pages I wasn't going to read it on my screen or print it. This book is not written like a manual, it is written for a user by a user and includes a lot of tips that are not in the official manual. It would have taken me forever to learn all the tricks without this book, if I ever did.
I found myself really having to consecrate in reading thiis. This is my first smart phone at 64 yrs of age and it was overwhelming to try to understand and remember what buttons to push. I sign up for a Samsung class at Best Buy with a Samsung rep. hopes this helps. Its hard being a beginner at my age and the young people really know how to use this equipment but keeping an open mind and trying to learn. Keeping the book by my side, but finding I do a lot of jumping around in the book.
A really good book for educating you to use your 'smart phone'.....but, there is no list of things to look up in the back so you almosthave to sit and read the entire book from start to finish with your phone in your lap. However, having done that I found lots of thingsI needed help with.
Best idea anyone could have! Being new to smart phones and over 75, I was able to use the book to set-up everything I needed and more.Thank you Gary
