1) What can’t airplane mode do?
I’m going to give you this scenario. You’re sitting on the train, playing Candy Crush, having a great time and suddenly a damn ad pops up and ruins your fun, but there’s a solution. Just switch your smartphone to airplane mode to stop this from happening. It will stop ads playing games while preserving battery as well.
Also, airplane mode can be useful when charging your phone. Just switch it on and start charging. It has been said that charging your phone while in airplane mode can accelerate charging time by nearly 20 %. What should you lose?

2. Lost your phone. No problem!
How often at home we lose our phones with no way to find it at all. Grief struck, we look frenzied around our homes, checking every nook and cranny over and over. Then, exhausted from searching, we decide to sit on the couch for a moment and feel a bump as we sit, realizing that in fact the phone was on us all the time.
There are a variety of’ Smartphone Finder apps on the market today but one I used before and had a lot of success with is the Clap. Download this… You’re going to save a lot of time, headaches, and long-term house laps.
3. All aboard
Have you ever experienced the fear of rocking to an airport outside your home country, moving to the gates for check-in, opening your email or boarding pass app to show your boarding pass to run out. Now you’re stuck with no hard copy and no way to show your boarding pass to the stewardess?
Before you leave, a handy tip is to screen your travel documentation. If you travel and rely on Internet connections to show your details, just take a screenshot before you leave. If you lose service, you will have a record of your details. When traveling between countries or along long routes, the same works with maps.
4. A television will do the trick
Recently, I was at a friends house, looking down on my phone. The battery life read 2 percent so I’d probably load my phone a good time. I asked him for a charger, and with a cord he came back… Only a cord. “What do you expect me to do with this?”
I asked, explaining that I was able to take the cable to the back of his TV and plug it into the USB port. To my surprise, it actually worked. However, my research into the topic revealed that this is not possible for all mobile devices and televisions, so your mileage may vary. You may be surprised pleasantly.
5. Pump up the volume
Okay, I’m going to say it, I like listening to the shower music. I like singing and dancing to the content of my heart. But the problem is that over all the noise I can never hear the damn thing, but don’t worry! I came up with a solution.
All you need to do is put your smartphone (speaker down) in an empty glass, bowl or any oval-shaped household items to amplify the sound. This is also perfect for listening to music in the office or sitting with your friend in a social setting when a speaker is not in arms.
