How To Use Calculator On Samsung Galaxy S8 And Galaxy S8+ Plus
To begin with, you’ll first need to make sure screen rotation is enabled on your device. To do this, pull down your status bar, and tap the ‘rotate screen’ icon until screen rotation is enabled. Fortunately, screen rotation is usually enabled by default so most of you won’t have to follow this step. Next, hold down your finger on the home screen. You’ll then be given the option to place items on your homescreen. From the widgets section, drag and drop the calculator widget onto your home screen.
You can now tap the calculator widget on your home screen to bring up the widget at any point. If you’d like to access the scientific calculator, simply rotate your screen into landscape mode. By doing this, your calculator app will showcase a variety of new buttons and mathematical functions.
