What are strategic tips, game hints, melee prompts, and tag popups?

I'd really like to know what each of the settings in game options actually changes before switching them on or off. Anyone know?

 

It would be helpful if Naughty Dog could add a description to each option in the settings menu.

Melee Prompts - are when you are sneaking behind an enemy and it will have a triangle over their head to grab them, then a square for choke or triangle for shiv.

 

Tag popups - are when you complete a challenge and it pops up in the top right corner sayings something like 'Hunter $100'

 

Not too sure on the other two, i guess they are just hints that tell you 'your ammo is low' or  a tip on what to do next if you haven't progressed in a while.

In addition to what SilentxMonkey said:

Strategic tips are tips like "enemies take more damage from arrows when they're unaware of your presence" (or something like that). They show when you get killed. In some situations they won't show up even when they're turned on, though

Game hints show you what to do and/or where to go when you're stuck in the same area for a certain amount of time. A notification "HINT: L3" will show up before so you still get to choose whether or not you want to see them.
