  • It’s easy to set a custom ringtone on your Samsung Galaxy S10 using the sound and vibration section of the Settings app.
  • You can set any song on your Galaxy S10 as a ringtone and start playing it from the beginning, or have the song play from a different point. 
  • You can also set specific ringtones for your favorite callers, so you know who is calling as soon as the phone begins to ring.

Unlike the iPhone, which makes setting up a custom ringtone a fairly arduous task, the ability to customize ringtones on Android phones like the Galaxy S10 is built into the operating system. 

You can even turn your favorite songs into ringtones, or set a custom ringtone for specific callers.

Here’s how to do it.
