Touch and hold is a fundamental control command on the Samsung device, allowing you to move app shortcuts or drag files to the Recycle Bin, for example.

In order for the Samsung device to recognise "touch and hold" as a command, the delay is 0.5 seconds so as not to confuse the command by simply typing. This delay can also be changed from short (0.5 seconds) to medium (1 second), long (1.5 seconds) or to a user-defined value.
