Samsung provided the on-screen navigation on the One UI with a new dimension. Not only can you hide the navigation bar – like on all recent Samsung phones – but you can keep navigating without removing the bar.

  • Go to  Display in the  Settings,
  • Scroll down a bit and choose Navigation bar
  • Full screen gestures option. 
  • To switch to gesture navigation, make sure the  Show and Hide button is on, and choose the  Actions for Start, Back and Recent option. Then, at the bottom left, tap the ‘dot’ that hides the navigation bar.

Full-screen gestures, which requires you to swipe up from the bottom of the screen to go back, go to the home screen, or access the recent apps screen. Basically, you swipe up where these buttons would be placed if the navigation bar wasn’t hidden.

1. Tap gesture (press)

Tap (single tap) is one of the essential Galaxy S10 touchscreen gestures. You cannot survive without it.

The tap gesture, as shown in the animation below,  means you touch somewhere (e..g., a button in an app, an app icon in Galaxy S10 home screen) on the screen once, then your finger should move away from the screen.

2. Double tap gesture

Double tap gesture requires you to quickly tap the same location or button twiceas shown in the animation below.

3. Long tap gesture (tap and hold)

Long tap gesture is often referred to as tap and hold.

To trigger the long tap gesture, you need to tap the screen, then keep the finger on the screen (hold) for more than 2 seconds, as shown in the animation below.  If you release your finger from the screen too early, it will be registered as a single tap gesture.

Swipe gesture

Swipe gesture requires you to lightly drag your finger vertically or horizontally across the touchscreen as shown in the animation below.

During the “swiping” period, your finger should always touch the screen.

5. Drag gesture (move)

Drag gesture is a combination of long tap and swipe gestures.

After you tap and hold an item, you can then move it to a new location on the screen as shown in the animation below.

6. Spread gesture

The spread gesture is the opposite of the pinch gesture.  You can use it to zoom in pictures or text in most apps.

As shown in the animation below, you need to move fingers outward in Galaxy S10 touchscreen to trigger the spread gesture.

7. Pinch gesture

The pinch gesture requires you to move two fingers inward in Galaxy S10 touchscreen.
