How to use Galaxy Note10+ Intelligent Wifi

Galaxy Note10+ Intelligent wifi, previously known as Smart Network switching or Adaptive wifi, is one of the useful yet hidden wifi features that not many people are aware of. When set up properly, you can have optimal wifi experience on your device all the time.  Basically, Intelligent wifi’s core purpose is to make internet connectivity as seamless as possible by automatically switching to between wifi and mobile data. In our experience, this works very well on the Galaxy S10 and Note10 devices so we highly recommend that you use it too.

How to use Galaxy Note10+ Intelligent Wifi to allow switching to mobile data when wifi is out

Setting up Galaxy Note10+ Intelligent Wifi is pretty simple. Learn how to do it with the steps below.

  1. Open Settings app.
  2. Tap Connections.
  3. Ensure that Wifi is on and working.
  4. Tap Wifi.
  5. Tap Advanced.
  6. Under Intelligent Wifi section, enable the options that are relevant in your situation. We recommend that you enable all four: Switch to mobile data, Turn on wifi automatically, Detect suspicious networks, and Wifi power saving mode for optimal experience.

If you turn on Switch to mobile data,  your Note10+ will automatically use Mobile or Cellular data whenever wifi is out of range, or if wifi signal is weak. If your Wi-Fi signal becomes weak or unreliable, your phone will switch to mobile data automatically.
Turn on wifi automatically is useful if you frequently go to the same places to connect. When this feature is enabled, your phone should automatically connect you to the previously connected wifi network without you knowing it. Wi-Fi will turn on automatically when you’re within range of Wi-Fi networks you use frequently.

Detect suspicious networks is a security layer by Samsung to keep you away from networks with recognized patterns of suspicious activities.

Wifi power saving mode can be a handy feature for your device in the long run. The more that you use your Galaxy Note10+, the more that Intelligent Wifi knows your usage pattern thereby making more efficient use of battery power. The algorithm for this feature is not publicly supplied by Samsung but it’s claimed to be effective if you leave it enabled for a long time.
