5 Tricks You May Not Know Your Andriod Could Do

1: Priority Calling

Sometimes you just don’t want to be disturbed, on Andriod phones you can filter notifications to only alert you to contacts who you dee important. To set your “Do Not Disturb” priority settings, go to Settings >> Sound >> Do Not Disturb. Here you can choose your notifications for calls and messages. You can also turn on “Repeat callers” in this section. If this feature is turned on, you will always get a notification if a caller tries to call you within a 15-minute period regardless of your priority settings.

2: Use it as a hard drive

Yes, that right you can use your Android just like a USB drive.

Having this function is useful for those of you who often find yourself needing to work or view documents or reports on the go.

It’s also pretty useful if you want to upload documents, music, videos or take them to a friend, customer or to the office.

It’s handy to be able to store a variety of file types into your Android storage and transfer files from your computer to your phone rather than remembering to carry your USB drive with you wherever you go.

3: Take a picture while video recording

Want to take a picture while recording a video? No problem. Once you’ve begun shooting, just tap the camera icon on the screen. A still photo will be saved in your gallery while you carry on shooting your video.

4: Custom Lock Screen Messages

Losing your phone is always a hassle but hopefully, this next trick will increase your chances of getting it back. To display a custom lock screen message, go to Settings >> Security >> tap the Screen lock gear >> Lock screen message. From here you can type specific messages like “If found, please call XXX-XXXX” or other contact info.

5: Share things with fellow Android users

With an Andriod, you can share just about anything – files, videos, music, photos, apps, etc. -– with other Android users. This is thanks to near-field-communication (NFC) technology. All you need to do is touch one NFC-enabled device against another.
