How to get the most out of Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4’s cover screen

Ever wanted to play games on your Galaxy Flip’s cover screen? Now you can.

It’s been more than a month since the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 launched in the market. We just played around with this smartphone recently. You can read our in-depth review of the foldable phone here. If you got your hands on the Samsung Galaxy Flip 4, you’re probably enthused about the 1.9-inch cover screen display. This compact display is a very convenient way to check your notifications, auto respond to messages, play songs, and do much more without opening up your phone. You can even take a picture from the rear cameras with the help of the cover screen display! 

While the cover display is a handy little feature, it has its limitations. Unlike its peer Moto Razr, Galaxy Flip’s cover display doesn’t let you use apps or type out text messages. At best, you can pin some widgets like the alarm, weather, Spotify, and step count, but you can’t really access the app drawer. This may be a dealbreaker for some buyers. Luckily, with the CoverScreen OS app, you can unlock the full potential of your Samsung Galaxy Flip 4’s cover screen.

Step 3: Go through what the basic swiping gestures can do.

Now that you’ve set up the CoverScreen OS, fold your phone and double-tap the cover screen. When the display comes to life, a single tap on the stand-by screen will give you access to the app drawer. Now you can use any app on the cover screen display. You can even open WhatsApp and respond to messages. 

Need to quickly watch a YouTube video? Now you can do it on the cover screen.

Need to quickly watch a YouTube video? Now you can do it on the cover screen. But there’s more. You’re probably wondering how much you can push the boundaries of the cover display’s functionality. Well, with the CoverScreen OS app, you can even play games like Call of Duty, Asphalt, and Garena Free Fire Max on your Galaxy Flip’s cover display. Granted, the experience won’t be as enthralling, but it’s an amazing feat.

While this is a great way to utilise your Flip’s cover screen, the app still has its limitations. Since the app is still in its beta phase, there are some minor hiccups in functionality. Most gestures register, and many apps are properly integrated with the display. One of the main reasons why some users like using the cover display is that it keeps them from using their phone all the time, but with the CoverScreen OS app, your cover display becomes the phone, which could easily bump up your screen time.
