Samsung's user's digests are more than just ebooks with a fancy name. While a large portion of the content is just text and images, videos are also included to help users get a better grip on certain features.
While it is somewhat unusual that these user's digests don't go as far as including the entire user guide, there is enough information to help users get started with their device, and get more out of it. Topics covered include basic setup features like connecting to a Wi-Fi network and configuring your lock screen. The digests also cover more unique features of the TouchWiz interface like Multi-Window, Popout Note and Popout Video functionality.
The user's digest for each device is a free download in the Google Play Store.
What do you think of this? Do you think we'll start to see more manufacturers making this kind of interactive help available to users? Or would you rather stick with the plain old paper manual?
