Samsung S10 SmartphoneHollis Johnson/Business Insider

It's easy to tire of the default alarm sound when you use the Samsung Galaxy S10's Clock app, but it's even easier to change that sound when you create a new alarm. You can also edit the sound for an existing alarm.

Not only can you choose from among the phone's many built-in ringtones, but you can also pick a song that's downloaded to your phone, or let Bixby read the time, weather, and news to you as you wake up.
