best mobile tips and tricks

In this digital era, almost all of us have smartphones. Mobile phones have become an integral part of our daily lives. From simple phone calls to advanced video calls or digital meetings, we rely heavily on our phones. However, to make the most out of it, there are some secret tips and tricks that we are about to discuss in this article. Don’t worry; it is not about rubbing toothpaste on your broken phone screen. The tips we are going to discuss are time-saving as well as life-changing.

Use Of Sleep Timer

Sleep timer

If you listen to music or watch videos before going to bed, you should use the sleep timer feature on your phone. It can be found in Android as well as IOS devices, but to show you in an iPhone, follow the steps below:

  • Open the clock.
  • Click on “Timer” at the bottom right corner.
  • Click on the “When timer ends” menu.
  • A menu will open. At the bottom of the menu, select “Stop playing.”

By following the above steps, you will listen to music when you are still awake. But as soon as you drift off to sleep, the music or video will automatically stop.

Fingerprint Scanner Tip

While registering our fingerprints on smartphones, we usually register one finger impression. By doing so, it sometimes becomes difficult and time-consuming to unlock and hold the phone at the same time. To overcome this problem, always register the fingerprints of fingers from both hands.

This will help unlock the phone quickly and save you a ton of time. Also, if you are holding something in one hand and your phone in the other, you won’t have to switch hands just for the sake of unlocking your phone.

Burst Mode

This mobile phone camera feature is especially for photography-savvy people. If you are experiencing a moment that cannot be repeated, you should not miss capturing it on the camera. For this reason, capturing 20 photos per second is a convenient feature if your phone has it. On a Samsung mobile phone, open the camera and hold the volume button to use the burst mode. On the other hand, to use burst mode on an iPhone, hold down the shutter button and swipe it to the left.

Full-Screen Capture

If you want to take a screenshot of an entire page on your mobile device, use the full-page capture feature on your page. On an iPhone, follow the following steps or the video below:

  • Take the first screenshot.
  • Open the screenshot that you captured.
  • At the top right, find the “Full Page” button.
  • Click on it, and you will have a screenshot of the entire webpage in one go.

On a Samsung device, follow the steps below:

  • Take a screenshot.
  • Tape on the scroll option in the menu that appeared at the bottom after taking a screenshot.
  • The scroll option is usually the second icon in this specific menu. Keep pressing it until the desired page is captured.

Use of Google Lens

Suppose you see a picture of something and want to search for it on Google. It is usually tough to describe it in writing. Instead, do the following:

  • Go to Google App.
  • Open Google Lens.
  • Take a photo of whatever you want to search for.
  • You will be surprised by the results after following the steps above.

Emergency Contacts

Indeed, you won’t need this feature now, and we hope that you don’t in the future. But it’s always worth it to set up your emergency contacts. You have to fill in your details once, and if anything happens to you, you can turn on emergency mode on your phone with a few simple steps.

The emergency mode will display your complete medical history to anyone around you. It will also turn on the location and internet of your phone to make you reachable. Moreover, it will call your emergency contacts and immediately ping your location to them.

Android Airdrop

Android Airdrop

One of the most significant advantages of an IOS device is the airdrop feature. You can send files from your iPhone to your MAC with just a few clicks. However, if you download the Snapdrop app on your Android device, you can transfer files from your Android phone to a MAC or a Windows device, just like the Airdrop feature in IOS. You can download the Snapdrop app from Google Play Store.

Notification History

Mobile Notifications

If you are the kind of person that accidentally closes away notifications that you want to read, this feature is for you. Simply go to settings and find “Notifications Log” or “Notifications History.” By enabling this option, you can read your closed notifications anytime you want.

Find The Song

You can use Google Assistant to your advantage if you ever hear a song and need clarification on its name. Remember, we are not talking about apps such as Shazam, which needs to listen to music for some time. By using Google Assistant, you can sing, hum, or even whistle the tune, and it will find it.

Copy And Paste On An iPhone

The traditional iPhone copy menu can be frustrating if you want to copy the text on your iPhone device. Instead, you can use your three fingers to copy and paste text instantly. To copy the text, swipe in with your three fingers, and to paste the text, swipe away. Similarly, for URLs such as .com, .NET, etc., hold the dot on your keypad, and a menu full of these URLs will pop up. Then you simply have to select the URL instead of writing it.
