8 Awesome Phone Secrets Few People Know About
It’s no secret that life becomes easier when you have a phone in your hand. Different apps come in handy and save you precious time in various situations. However, your favorite gadget has many features you haven’t discovered or heard of yet.
Bright Side gathered some interesting phone settings that will make your gadget work more productively.
8. Fast charging
If your phone battery is running low and you don’t have much time to wait, Airplane Mode is your best option. Your battery will charge much faster than usual.
Another way to prolong the charge is to install a dark background on your main screen so that automatic pixel highlighting shuts off and the battery lives longer.
7. Instantly delete text
No, you don’t have to hold backspace and wait. iPhone and iPad owners can use the Shake to Undo feature to instantly delete all the text you’ve just typed. Just shake your phone, and tap Undo. This is how the magic happens.
6. Stop pop-up ads
These annoying ads "pop up" unexpectedly when we use different apps. If you don’t feel like paying for premium content, there’s an easy way to end the ads parade: switch your device to Airplane Mode, and enjoy your favorite apps without interruption.
5. Save a web page
Very often we open a book or an article in a browser tab to read later, but it never happens because of a bad internet signal. The saved pages are gone, and your mood is spoiled. Good news! Android owners now can save any internet content for further reading — just press the Download button, and enjoy your read.
4. Set a sleep timer for music
You may not know this, but the timer in your phone has a very good feature that all music or audiobook lovers will appreciate. With the sleep timer that’s built into the Clock App, you can set the time you need and select Stop playing from the list of ringtones. Now you’ll fall asleep easily, and the nonstop music won’t bother you. The phone will turn it off automatically.
3. Mouse remote
Air Mouse Pro for iOS and Remote Mouse for Android can transform your device into a wireless remote. The key feature of the apps is to make any phone a complex control device for your laptop or PC. Enjoy wireless control over your entire computer.
2. Bubble level in your phone
All smartphones have a wide range of sensors that determine your position and orientation. If you download an app, you’ll be able to use your phone as a precise bubble level to measure any surface.
1. Network improvement
This neat trick will help iPhone users improve their network connection if their coverage isn’t great. Type the combination *3370# to get improved voice quality for GSM conversations. To turn off the feature, type #3370#.
