Samsung Galaxy S5: How to Set a Part of a Song as a Ringtone in Android 4.4.2 Kitkat

Set a unique ringtone is the best way that can be taken to help you easily know that you have incoming calls since the default ringtones may have been widely used by other users. Fortunately, aside from letting you set a song or other supported sound files as a ringtone, Samsung Galaxy S5 also has the ability to automatically extract the recommended part of a song to use it as a ringtone so that you'll have a unique one. But, you have to remember that you can't manually choose which part of the song that can be used as a ringtone since it'll be chosen automatically by the device.


How to set a part of a song as a ringtone?
You can do so by using some methods. But, in this post, we'll try to set a part of a song as a ringtone by using two different methods: from the general settings menu and from the stock Music Player app.
