There is a curious feature in the Samsung Galaxy S7 that we have not repaired because the smartphone itself has a whole series of high-level features, but that we can highlight now. It is about the possibility of sharing the WiFi connection of the smartphone. That is, to use the mobile as a WiFi access point, but not sharing the 4G network, but the WiFi network itself to which the mobile is connected.
Sharing the WiFi
Almost all mobile phones today have the option of sharing the smartphone’s Internet connection, a connection that we have when we have contracted it with a mobile operator, with another smartphone, with a computer or with a tablet. We have the connection through the mobile network, and we share it through WiFi, creating a WiFi network to which that other smartphone, tablet or computer connects. However, in the new Samsung Galaxy S7 it is possible to be connected to a specific WiFi network, and at the same time share that WiFi network. For this, it is necessary to have a double WiFi antenna, which can be used not only to connect to the network itself, but to create an additional network.
This new feature, in reality, is just an additional option on the smartphone that may never be used, or that could be useful in certain cases. For example, if we have achieved a connection to a WiFi network from a place that does not offer free WiFi, it could be useful to share our WiFi with a tablet or computer that we have. It can also be useful to multiply the range of a WiFi network. It is true that specific devices are sold for this, which are connected to the electricity grid, but having a mobile with this capacity could be very useful. In the maximum place that a WiFi network reaches, we can put the mobile to act as a repeater, and thus be getting the WiFi network to reach further.
