Samsung’s Game Tuner app really needs to support non-flagship devices

Samsung’s increased focus on gaming with the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge was interesting to see. The company promised superior performance on its latest flagships, and also built in dedicated tools to let users get the most out of their gaming experience. Samsung’s Game Launcher app lets us access all our installed games from a single location; Game Tools offers various features, such as an option to disable the device’s capacitive keys so that they don’t get in the way, and the ability to take in-game screenshots and record gameplay videos.

But this focus on gaming didn’t exactly start with the S7 and S7 edge. Samsung launched the Game Tuner app way back in October last year, with support for the Galaxy S6 lineup and the Galaxy Note 5. Game Tuner, as the name suggests, allows you to fine-tune game settings – you can decrease a game’s texture quality and resolution to increase frame rate, or limit the game’s frame rate to save battery power. It’s extremely useful should you decide to make use of Game Tuner, but oddly, Samsung has kept the app away from those who would need it the most.
