There probably isn’t a person now who hasn’t got an absolutely indispensable smartphone in his pocket. However, despite this fact, there aren’t many people out there who know about all the incredible things these devices are actually capable of.
Android is stacked with so many tools and configuration options, we often overlook some of its most useful features. Sometimes they’re hiding in plain sight. Other times, they’re buried so deep, you’d never discover them without spelunking deep into sub menus, groping blindly in the dark.
We would like to end this vicious circle and tell you about 5 of the most fascinating features of Android.
Smartphone remote control
Just go to Settings -> Security -> Device administrators, and check the boxes next to Android Device Manager, Remotely locate this device, and Allow remote lock and erase.Now if you lose your smartphone, you can locate and block it without losing your data via website.
A subset of Android users over the years have resorted to rooting their devices to get more advanced features. Android has slowly gained features over time that make rootless of a necessity. As of Android 5.0 Lollipop, there’s less reason than ever to root now that Android supports screen recording. You just need an app to take proper advantage of it.
Turning on Guest Mode
If you would like to temporarily give your phone to another person yet keep your personal data confidential, use Guest Mode. Swipe down from the top with two fingers, and touch the user icon on the upper right. The Add guest icon will appear, and you’ll be able to choose which actions the person handling your smartphone will be allowed to take.
People with poor eyesight often have no idea how much this feature can help them. Just go to Settings -> Accessibility -> Magnification gestures. Then you’ll be able to zoom in on any part of the display just by tapping it.
Monitor data usage
The trick is to receive a warning before you trip your data limit.
In our age of draconian tiered data plans and ever-increasing carrier fees, you often need to watch your mobile data consumption closely. Android has a built-in tool that helps you do this, but most users don’t use it to its full potential. The Data Usage menu is usually near the top of your system settings list (though it may be buried under a “More” heading), and can also be accessed via the network signal strength icon in Quick Settings. You can use the sliders on the usage chart to set your data limits for your chosen billing cycle.
