Cool tricks for android phones


11) Don’t use your smartphone while charging: -
 Do you have ever wondered why phone manufacturers make such sort of charging cables? Do they want to save your money? No it’s not true. They do this because they don’t want you to use the phone while charging. They actually discourage the idea of charging and using phone at the same time. Because when you do this, it affects the battery life. Most of the batteries have a limited battery life and charge cycle. If you use it while charging, it will reduce your battery life.

12) Download music, video etc. directly in your SD Card: -
 You must save media files such as music, video streaming online can eat into your data plan and cost you a lot of money. You can save your data and money if you directly download as many as your favorite media in your SD Card instead of streaming them online. You may not have a good data connection everywhere to stream them online.

13) Use your smartphone’s camera to check your remote: -
 If your remote is not working properly, you can check your remote using your smartphone. You can use this trick to check if your remote control’s battery is dead when it stops working. Because our eyes can’t see it but digital camera can. A smartphone’s camera is sensitive to IR radiation. If you want to try it for yourself just use a common IR remote control. The infrared beam emitted when a button is pressed will show as white or purple light.

14) Use aeroplane mode to speed up charging: -
 Just like everyone else you may want to charge your phone as quickly as possible. Usually aeroplane mode is used while travelling by an aeroplane. But you can use this function for a special trick. When you enable aeroplane mode your phone will use much less battery life and so charge more quickly. It really helps for those who have less time to charge their phone. To enable/disable aeroplane mode in an android follow these steps: (a) Settings > Wireless & Network Settings > Aeroplane mode Or (b) Press and hold Power Key Or (c) Most devices shows this option in notification bar.

15) Disable App notifications: -
 If you are annoying from unwanted notifications then you should disable them. These app notifications also drain your battery. There are many apps installed in our phone but some of them are useful and some are unnecessary. Some apps show notification which we don’t want to see. If you want to turn them off and save your battery and also you have Jelly Bean 4.1 and above, here is how. On any of your unwanted notification in your notification bar, long press on the notification for a massage box to appear, Tap on App Info > Uncheck Show notification > OK.

16) Check battery use: -
 Almost every smartphone has detailed information of which apps are consuming most of your battery. You would want to know which app is draining too much battery. So you could select and uninstall them. It will be helpful to keep your phone faster and a long battery life. To check this, go to Settings > Battery, You can also use power saving option to save your battery.

17) Make your documents digital: -
 These days, quality of a smartphone camera has been increased. So they are very useful for us. We no longer need a scanner to get all of our paper files up into the cloud. Evernote, CamScanner and Google Drive are the three of several apps that can do the job. It is so simple to use. You can get them on Google Play. Most of them are free to use. You can install them to digitize your documents.

18) Use more camera apps: -
 The camera app that comes with your phone is perfectly adequate most of the time. But they have a limited number of functions. You can capture photos more interesting and enhance them by using a special camera app. Youcam Perfect, Beauty Plus, Moment Cam etc. are some camera apps. They can actually enhance your photo while clicking them. They can increase your photo quality. You can download and install them for a good experience.

19) Use Google Translate: -
 Google Translate is a very useful app. I have used it many times. I hope you have tried it too. It supports dozens of languages. You can consider it like a universal translator. You can speak into it and it will then speak back in the other language. It is not real time, but certainly closes enough. You generally need a data connection for it to work. You can also download specific language to your phone.

20) Use low power mode: -
 When your phone’s battery is at a low percentage and you are nowhere near a charger. You should not be panic for this problem. You still have a backup plan which can give you more battery life. Your phone has a unique feature which can help you. Just go to Settings > Battery > Power Saving or Battery Saver mode. If you enable this function non-essential tasks will be disabled and will get more hours of battery life.
