One of the most unique and noticeable ways to customize your phone and make it yours is changing up the sound settings. We already went over how to make and customize ringtones in our How to Add & Change Ringtones on Your Galaxy Note 5 article, but there’s tons more options we can change to even further customize the sounds on your Samsung Galaxy Note 5. Here’s how to do it:



  • customize soundsOpen the Sounds and Notifications menu in the Device page of the Settings app.
  • The first option under the Sound section is Sound mode. This menu gives you three options: Sound, Vibrate, and Mute. As you might expect, this changes what sounds you do and don’t hear.
    • With Sound, you get the full range of sounds and vibrations on your phone.
    • Vibrate prevents sounds, but keeps all the vibrations enabled.
    • Mute will prevent your device from playing sounds or using vibration.
  • The Volume menu has sliders for four aspects of your phone: Ringtone, Media, Notifications, and System.
    • These volume adjustments can also be access by tapping the gear icon on the volume popup whenever you use the volume buttons.
  • Below that is Ringtones and sounds, which we covered in our article How to Add and Change Ringtones on Your Galaxy Note 5.
  • Vibrations brings us into the menu to customize the vibration settings on our Note 5. We can change the vibration intensity, pattern, whether or not you receive vibration on a phone call, vibration feedback on soft keys and various other actions, and Keyboard vibration.
  • Sound quality and effects provides options to apply effects to all the sounds on the system and potentially enhance how it sounds to your ear.
  • Below this, we have the notifications section. Check out our How to Use Do Not Disturb and How to Manage Notifications articles for more information on these settings.
