Are you a user of an Android phone, but don’t know most of the functions it offers? Do you want to discover more secure and interesting features on your phone? Check out this article for some useful Android tips and tricks.
Most of the people in the world today use Android phones on a daily basis, for calls, messages and more. Android is the mobile operating system that most phone companies use on their phones. There are many functions, rather than calls and messages, that need to be examined. Explore the hidden features and many tricks to save time on your device.
The basic problem that a phone user faces is battery problems. Most Android phones have a built-in power strip option, which when activated, provides a faster disconnection of the entire phone battery, thus eliminating apps. Another feature is that you can be the developer of your own phone settings. Go to ‘Settings’, select the ‘About phone’ option and tap the ‘Build number’ of your phone seven times.
A countdown will appear on the screen, followed by a command telling you that you are now a developer and a ‘Developer option’ will be displayed just above the ‘About phone’ option.
This ‘developer option’ can also be used to reduce the lag of your Android phone.
By reducing the ‘Window Animation Scale’, the ‘Animator Duration Scale’ and the ‘Transition Animation Scale’ in the ‘Developer Option’, from 1x to 0.5x, your phone can feel faster than before. Now you can control those annoying app notifications by long pressing the app notification, in the notification bar, which will display an information icon in the right corner. Tapping this icon gives you the option to prioritize your notifications. You can block unwanted apps, hide private information, or select priority mode for most of the above apps.
To zoom in and out of your Google Maps while driving, all you need to do is double-tap on the spot and swipe up or down. This tip will help you avoid the problem of pinching your phone screen while handling your phone to stay in place, all while driving.
Today, children use their parents’ phone more often. To prevent your children from accessing dangerous games, adult content or accidental access to your bank, this feature will be of great help. Go to ‘Settings’, then ‘Security’ and enable the ‘Screen pinning’ option. Open the app you want to pin and protect, then hit the overview button to pin the app.
Another cool feature is the built-in games on Android phones. In ‘Settings’, select ‘About phone’ and repeatedly tap the ‘Version number’ of the device to get this function.
