Among the many Android smartphones, the one that has been really successful and that can be considered as the antagonist of the iPhone is the Samsung Galaxy S10. The Galaxy series smartphones still remain the most popular and best-selling mobile phones with Android operating system in the world and in the city.
Therefore, leaving out the most important and basic applications such as Facebook, Google Maps, Gmail, Skype, WhatsApp e Twitter let's see here the best free apps that should never be missing on an Android phone and even more on a Samsung Galaxy S20 but also on previous still valid models such as Galaxy S10, S10 Plus, S9, S8, Note and earlier


The best apps for Samsung Galaxy

What we have included in this list are the apps that we absolutely must try on our Samsung Galaxy, so as to get all those features that help manage and better exploit these powerful smartphones.

1) AirDroid
AirDroid is one of the most useful and ingenious apps that can be found on Google Play and we can download it here -> AirDroid.


This app allows you to connect the Samsung from your computer using the WiFi connection without installing any drivers; we will be able to move photos, images, music and videos without even using the cable!
In another article we can read the guide to manage the Android phone from the PC via web browser with Airdroid.

2) Google Chrome
In the end, even for the Samsung Galaxy, Google Chrome remains the best browser that you can install, using the following link -> Google Chrome.


This browser is among the fastest we can try on Samsung, it integrates with the Google account and with the Chrome browser used on the computer by importing all bookmarks and synchronizing passwords and history data.

3) Energy Ring
Energy Ring is the best app that can be installed on Samsung Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus, a real magic only possible on this smartphone. It practically turns the edge of the front camera into a monitor that marks the battery charge. The configurable energy ring lights up around the camera lens and indicates the current battery level. There are also numerous options for configuration and customization.

Last week, we talked about Hidey Hole. It has a lot of backgrounds for camera cutouts. Energy Ring has a little more functionality, though. You can read it lightly if you want. It doesn't use a lot of battery and you can get some neat animations if you're plugged in and charging. Currently only works with S10 and S10e with S10 Plus support coming soon. We're pretty happy with how the customization community has embraced the punch hole camera. It is actually fun.

4) Google Photos
If we want to get the free and unlimited online backup of all the photos taken with the excellent camera integrated in the Samsung we have to use Google Photos, available here -> Google Photos.


Just configure the Google account to have the automatic backup of all photos (without limits) via WiFi or optionally via LTE (watch out for data consumption).

5) GBoard
Google keyboard is the best free to change typing method on Android and can be downloaded from here -> Google keyboard.


With this keyboard we can immediately send emojis, GIFs and carry out integrated searches to send.
Excellent predictive and scrolling system, among the best in the category.

6) Hidey Hole
This app, Hidey Hole, only for Samsung Galaxy S10, aggregates the wallpapers included in the Samsung Galaxy S10 smartphone family (S10 / S10e / S10 +), mainly those created to obscure and hide the camera hole, which camouflages perfectly.

7) Google Drive
Google Drive is not only a cloud storage in which to save files, but also the application to have a program similar to Microsoft Word to write documents and texts; we can download it from here -> Google Drive.


Saving documents online and editing them will become much easier with this app, which also integrates a good PDF viewer.

8) Microsoft and Office tools
If we work a lot with office documents and Outlook emails, we absolutely need to install all the office apps available on Android.
The links for the various downloads are available here ->
  • Word
  • Excel
  • Power point
  • Outlook

9) Pixlr
One of the best features of the Galaxy is its camera that takes great pictures and allows you to share them with a click.
It is therefore not a bad idea to install a photo editor like Pixlr, downloadable from here -> Pixlr.


With this editor you can apply filters, effects, frames and stickers very quickly, as well as make some corrections on the fly without going through the PC.

10 ) 1Weather
To know the updated weather forecast and the current temperature, 1Weather can be installed on a Samsung Galaxy; downloadable from here -> 1Weather.


This app is the best Weather app on Android because it provides a great widget for the screen and offers all the necessary information on temperature, humidity and rainfall risk for any area or city on Earth.
