The iPhone vs Android debate has always been there about which one is better, has more user-friendly features or stunning or unique design! But one thing is for sure, Android smartphones have a massive user base. Moreover, they are more versatile and customizable than an iPhone and the number of features on the former are far greater in number. However, not all android phone users are using their handsets to full potential. Instead of missing out in a major way, they should just play around with the settings, and find some really useful tools and features that can make day-to-day life easier.
Here, we showcase 5 hidden features on Android smartphones, that you may have missed. So, make the best out of your Android smartphone now! However, do note that these features vary from phone to phone and may not be available on all Androids. And yes, it is about time you stopped obsessing over the iPhone vs Android experience!
As we are moving towards ever-larger screens, it is becoming difficult to handle the phone with just one hand. Especially, when you got your hands full of other stuff and you are traveling on public transport like metro, bus or train, this is the moment when you miss a smartphone that can fit in your hand. But you can turn your large screen display into a handy smartphone with its “One-handed" functionality. Just enable the mode and enjoy typing with one hand. You can bring the mode from the 'Movements and gestures' category in phone Settings.
If you lost your smartphone or had it stolen, then Google's 'Find my Device' feature can help you locate your phone remotely. Just go to the Find my device website, log in with your Google account and it will show all the devices linked with it. You can lock them or erase sensitive data if you think you lost it or someone may have stolen it.
Got an Android phone with a fingerprint sensor? Then use it with its full potential! You can access notifications, take photos in addition to unlocking devices or apps. All you need to do is to go to the 'Moves and Gestures' category in settings and activate the gestures that you want to allow with your fingerprint.
You can access your smartphone on TV! Yes, you can! For that, you need to have a compatible TV or smart TV that can allow it to mirror with the smartphone via Bluetooth. You can watch the phone content directly on TV, which you may not be able to access otherwise.
If your phone is struggling with the speed or freezing while working, then it needs rest! Rest from the background processes and apps which are draining the RAM memory of the smartphone. You can optimise it by clearing RAM memory from the device support category in settings, in addition to that, there are also schedule optimizations and automatic restarts options that can improve the performance of your smartphone when it is inactive for a longer duration.
