It keeps the applications in order and will help repair minor damages or bugs that might hurt your device. To schedule an auto restart, go to Settings/Cloud and Accounts/Backup and reset/and then Auto restart. Once on the setting, set your schedule for example if you want to do it once a week then set the time.

Physical Care Tips for your Galaxy Note 7
Putting a screen guard and securing your device with a galaxy note 7 case or a cover right after its purchase will preserve its original physical appearance for a longer period. For scratches, a screen guard or a screen protector is a big help. It comes in many forms and some also provide anti-radiation features and are sold in sizes that will fit exactly on your device’s screen. For galaxy note 7 case, Cimo offers a clear case if you do not want to hide the original look of your device. Like the screen protector, it will protect your device from scratches and other physical damages caused by bumping and falling. A good leather cover might also help if you are that person who likes to carry your note outside during field works or during outdoor activities. Leather covers will make your device look cleaner and more corporate.
Aside from keeping your device clean and beautiful on the outside, you can also tweak its properties to appear more appropriate with your personality. Most of my girlfriends with extra creativeness usually tweak their phones and choose a girly color like pink or lavender and will install fonts that will satisfy their eyes.
- Themes: To apply a theme for your smartphone, long press on the wallpaper to toggle the options for properties. Choose from the numbers of themes that Samsung has already installed with your device and just tap on the theme that interests you.
- Icons: If you want to further enhance and change the icons’ appearance, go to the wallpaper and theme manager and check for the options to change the icon styles.
- Sometimes, other new apps I install will disorganize my home screen so if you think that all quick settings and all important apps are already organized on the home screen, you can stop new icons from appearing on the home screen. Go to the Play Store/Find the Settings menu and uncheck the box where it says, “add new app to home.”
- With Google Now Launcher app, you can have a different launcher or home screen style and do some more experiment with it. All you have to do is download the application and install it on your device. After installation, go to home screen by pressing the Home button and choices for a new default launcher will appear. Go to Settings/Applications/Hit the top right menu/Select default applications/Home Screen and then select the launcher you want to use.
