Inside your smartphone are hidden more things than you think. These tips and hidden tricks will allow you to bring to light a potential you have not yet used. With or without application: you have to prove what we are going to show you. Update: The Android Easter-Egg now allows playing with more users.
Easter-Egg Eggs for everyone
The Easter-Egg of Android 6 Marshmallow lets you play simultaneously with friends on a single screen and is somewhat easier than the Android 5 Lollipop. Under “Phone information”, tap the Android version several times . Then hold down on the M. Press up on the plus, until there are enough players and start the game.
In Android 7 Nougat the Easter egg does not have as much action and is more like a tamagochi. The only thing you can do with him is collecting cats.
Use the built-in file browser
You probably do not need any additional file scanning applications . Go to “Settings”, and under “Storage and USB”, choose “Scan”. You can then scan the file system and manage the files.
Connect via WPS-Push to Wi-Fi wireless network faster
Did you know that you can connect to secure Wi-Fi networks without entering the password? There is a button on the router that saves you having to look up the Wi-Fi password and the tedious task of typing it. Sometimes put “Register”, “WPS / Reset” or simply the icon with two arrows, as shown in the photo below:
Behind this is a protected Wi-Fi configuration; A simple authentication method, whereby everyone who clicks on their device the corresponding button, has access to the wireless router for a short period of time. Enter the Wi-Fi menu in your smartphone, open the advanced options and click on the “WPS Button” option. The connection should be established in a few seconds.
Enter “Development Options” and set all animation times to 0.5. From there, the menus work twice as fast and allow the phone to feel “overclocked”.
Anchor important settings on the home screen
Is there something in the configuration that you open very often? Whether it’s dual SIM, Bluetooth or Wi-Fi management: the setup application has a 1×1 widget that gives you quick access. Put it on the home screen.
Manage your smartphone with the mouse
Did you break the screen and not detect when you click on it? Or do you feel like throwing Open TTD games, but you do not have the patience to handle it with the touch screen? Connect a USB mouse. All you need is an OTG cable , and you can start using the mouse. In the adapter you can connect game controllers (GamePads), USB drives and more. Do it while sticking your tongue out to your friends who have an iPhone. Here you can find adapters for micro-USB OTG, and here to type C .
Use the new features of the Android update
In major operating system updates, small innovations are sometimes overlooked and therefore not used. Many of them are practical and are quite good. In the case of Marshmallow there is a rather ingenious reporting function. The “union” of individual applications is also very good. In Nougat the split screen is a bypass, so you can finally watch YouTube videos while chatting on WhatsApp.
Using secret codes
Manufacturers of smartphones and providers also provide codes that you can enter through the numeric keypad of the phone application. This way you can disconnect the voicemail, view the IMEI or enter secret menus. Naturally we have a list of known GSM and USSD codes .
