The present world is the world of smartphones. Android phones are one of the most popular choices out there. Even though a lot of people have a smartphone, a lot many of them do not know certain hidden features in their phones that can be used.
Here are 4 cool hidden features of smartphones.
- Reboot Option (Force): There may be times when your phone hangs up; in such cases, you can reboot it instead of getting tensed. All you have to do is press the home button, the power button as well as the volume button together and your phone will reboot.
- Easy Access to Google: A life without internet is unimaginable. Many people do not know that smartphones provide a simple way for accessing Google. All you have to do is just press the menu button and hold it for a couple of seconds and it will open the Google page.
- Safe Mode Reboot: Just like you reboot your PCs in safe mode, you can do the same with your phones as well. In case your phone hangs for some unknown reason, then you will have to press the power button for a few seconds and then you will be given a notification that the reboot is happening in safe mode. When you do this, your 3rd party apps will be disabled. However, you can enable all of these when you start your phone in normal mode.
- Face Detection Method for Unlocking: Some of the new versions of the android phones will allow you to use this feature, which will help you in unlocking the phone using face detection. In order to make the function much more secure, the software has an added layer of security, which means the phone can be unlocked only when your face matches and only when you blink your eyes. In order to activate it, you will have to go to Settings, then to the Security option, and then the Screen Lock option and finally the Face Unlock option. Enable the feature and you are good to go.
