It goes without saying that the unique features of the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus device truly make it stand out. The phablet-like display, with its smooth and curved edges, is guaranteed to catch everyone’s eyes, but you know what else will have this effect? Naming your smartphone in a unique way, with a name that will be instantly spotted whenever the device will be listed somewhere…
Some people are really proud of this cool smartphone and are happy to take advantage of this rename option just like that. Other people use it to connect to other devices frequently and prefer to avoid the uncertainty of having more than one Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus to choose from the list.
Usually, when you’re at home or in a private place, with a private network to connect to and surrounded by people who don’t have the same Galaxy S9 Plus model like you do, pairing your smartphone with whatever device you need will go smoothly. But in very crowded, perhaps even public places, things will be a bit different. So, if you don’t want to guess which phone from the list of Galaxy S9 Plus devices is yours, you have to make some changes.
To officially give Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus a name…
- Go to the main screen of the device;
- Swipe down from the top of the screen, to extend the notification shade;
- Select the small gear icon from the right side, to access the Settings;
- Scroll down, through the Settings menu, to get to the About Device section;
- Select the About Device (or the Device Information) feature;
- In that submenu, where you also have the Software Update, the Status, and the Legal Information entries, you should find the Device Name option;
- Tap on Device Name and type the name you want your Galaxy S9 Plus to display;
- Use the Save button in the end.
Long story short, you can easily give the Galaxy S9 Plus a custom name, by tweaking the Settings from the About Device section. Once you do that, the name that you have chosen will start being displayed wherever your phone must be identified – like when sharing files via the Wi-Fi Direct option or when trying to connect to a Bluetooth device!
