Your smartphone is a useful everyday tool when it comes to calling, texting, browsing the web, or even keeping track of your health. There is more you can do with your smartphone than you might realize.
While most of us never leave the house without it, many of us don’t use smartphones even to their full potential. For example, if you have trouble waking up in the morning, you can place your phone in a large glass next to your bed to wake up louder.
Also, setting up Emergency SOS settings on your iPhone or Android device allows your phone to call for help and alert your emergency contacts to your location by pressing the power button five times. You can also recover deleted photos by tapping Library in the Photos section of your Android device and tapping Trash. Then place your finger on the image you want to recover and select “Recover”.
On an iPhone, tap Albums in Photos, then scroll down to Recently Deleted. Select the image you want to recover and select “Recover”. For both Android and iPhone, you will be able to recover photos deleted within the past 30 days.
Since GPS is one of the biggest battery drain, you can screenshot directions to save battery.
If you’re worried about losing your phone while on vacation, you can set your home screen to display your contact information so your phone can be returned. With Android, if you enable Find My Device, you’ll be able to Google your phone’s location, and remotely lock or erase its contents from your Google Account.
