Samsung is bringing its Game Launcher to the Galaxy S6 and Note 5

The feature neatly tucks all your games into one folder and includes several add-ons to record gameplay, shut off alerts, and save you power.

It appears Samsung is bringing one of the best features of the Galaxy S7 down to last generation’s flagships.

According to a series of reports, the Samsung Game Launcher and related gaming tools will now work on the Galaxy S6 and Note 5. Presumably this would also include the S6 Edge and S6 Edge+ as well since they were released as part of the same generation.

SamMobile says that you should now be able to update the Game Launcher from the Galaxy Apps Store.

PhoneArena also mirrored the same report, which gives us confidence that some owners have been able to install these on their phones.

The Galaxy Game Launcher brings a lot of clever innovations into smartphone gaming.

Along with tucking all of your games into a folder, the Game Launcher includes several tools that enhance the mobile gaming experience. You can quickly record your gaming, disable alerts, and save power by dropping down the frame rate and resolution.

Samsung will also add in the Game Launcher to the Galaxy Note 7, so you can look forward to it if you’re planning on grabbing the latest and greatest big-screened phone.

The impact on you: If you have one of last generation’s Samsung flagships, you ought to head to the Galaxy App Store and see if you can download this rather cool app. If nothing else it eliminates the need to drag all of your games into one folder. The other add-ons are pretty nice as well, killing off alerts, saving you power, and offering trending lists of all the popular games.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
