Hidden Secret Codes for Samsung Galaxy Mobile Phones
One of the most popular articles of AskVG is "Hidden secret codes for Google Android mobile phones" which has been featured on various mobile phone websites and magazines:
When I wrote that article, all secret codes mentioned in the article were working on almost all Android cell phones but with the release of new Android versions such as KitKat, Lollipop, etc, many of the codes stopped working on many Android mobile phones. Also many mobile manufacturing companies such as Samsung disabled those codes so most of the codes no longer work in those mobile brands specially Samsung Galaxy series phones.
But today in this topic, I'm going to share many new hidden secret codes which will work in all Samsung smartphones whether its Samsung Galaxy S series mobile phone or Galaxy Note or any other Samsung mobile model.
I have tested these codes on Samsung Galaxy S6, S4, S2 mobile phones as well as Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and all codes worked fine. I'm sure all these codes will work absolutely fine in all Samsung mobile phones.
I found these codes by decoding and reading various system files of Samsung Galaxy S6 firmware. These secret codes can be used to access many hidden menus and options in your mobile phone to test hardware and sensors, to upgrade firmware and to know about many interesting stuff which are not generally available in phone settings.
