Every Smartphone User Needs To Know These 7 Amazing Things They Can Do With Their Phones
My smartphone is my bae and I’m sure so is yours! It’s impossible to survive without our phones in today’s time and this beautiful creation by mankind is still not being used to their full potential.
Honestly, we have no idea what our smartphones are capable of and their superpowers will only leave us amused and also more in love with them. The gadgets around us are constantly progressing and their amazing features continue to impress us with each passing day.
If you love your smartphone just as much as I do, you’d probably want to know about these 7 things that it is capable of!
1) YOU CAN USE MAPS OFFLINE
We all know how expensive internet can be while we’re on roaming! But what if you’re lost and need to use an electronic map? The best solution is to download online maps to your phone and disable mobile Internet while leaving GPS switched on. Thanks to satellite data, your location will still be displayed without you being charged extra.
2) YOU CAN PAY WITH YOUR PHONE INSTEAD OF YOUR CREDIT CARD
With the help of the NFC modules, built in many phone models, you can link your credit card to an account in the relevant system (Android or Apple Play). This will enable you to pay using your phone across the globe at stores that accept contactless payments.
3) SEARCH ANYTHING YOU WANT
With an application called Google Goggles, you can find anything you want. This app’s distinctiveness is in the fact that, instead of typing in your search queries, you’re using your smartphone camera. This is especially convenient when making searches related to food, household goods, images, and barcodes.
4) LINK TWO SMARTPHONES TOGETHER
Thanks to the One-Touch-Go (OTG) function, any modern smartphone can be linked to a peripheral device, including another smartphone. The process requires fitting one phone with a USB female adapter and the second phone with a micro-USB cable. After the phones identify the cable and the adapter, you can safely connect them together.
5) SWITCH TO SAFE MODE
This mode is needed for debugging and the removal of third-party applications that interfere with the proper operation of the phone. To enable safe mode, switch on your phone or tablet, then press the power button again and hold it. When a menu appears, press and hold the onscreen “Off“ or ”Power Off” key. When safe mode option appears, click “OK.”
6) TURN YOUR PHONE INTO A DIGITAL SCALE
You can also use your phone for weighing small objects (for instance, groceries at the store) thanks to applications like ‘working scale-free’ that transform your gadget into a digital scale. Simply install the app, calibrate it with a small air cushion or any object whose weight is known in advance (such as a coin), and you’re ready to go!
7) YOUR PHONE IS ALSO A SCANNER
Did you know that you can scan any document or photo with your smartphone camera? To take full advantage of this feature, you’ll need to download camscanner that will not only recognize the document but also save it to the cloud and send a copy to the intended recipient.
There is so much that a smartphone can do and we can only imagine the kind of things that it would be doing in future as the technology is growing with each passing day!
