Learning how to calculate tips on Samsung Galaxy phones and tablets comes in super handy when you're out at a restaurant or bar. If you're with a group, the check comes and you have a weird number to split between you. And then adding on the tip is yet another headache. 

Luckily, the built-in tip calculator on your Samsung Galaxy device makes working out what everyone owes a cinch. What's most useful about it though, is that you can use the feature to quickly adjust the tip percentage to allow people to pay different tips if they're more or less satisfied with the service.

Admittedly, the presence of the tip calculator isn't exactly obvious. But don't worry, we're here to show you how to find it. Here's how to calculate tips on Samsung Galaxy devices.
