We at GIGGAG decided to test 12 popular tricks for your gadgets. All you need are common items and some sleight of hand.
Note: The items are ranked by usefulness, with the coolest ones at the end. So read on!

12. Use A battery Instead Of a stylus.

12. Use a battery instead of a stylus.
Our experience: A battery is an excellent alternative to a stylus. We also found that for this to work, you need to touch the screen with the negative side of the battery.

10. Wrap Some Aluminum Foil On your Finger.

10. Wrap some aluminum foil on your finger.
Our experience: This can be done if you’re wearing gloves and the screen doesn’t respond. The life hack works, so you can save on special touch gloves for smartphones. And you don’t need to take the gloves off to answer a call or write a text.

8. Make A smartphone Case From A balloon.

8. Make a smartphone case from a balloon.
First, inflate the balloon (not too much, to just about half the max volume), and then squeeze the phone into it: the balloon will cling to your smartphone like a glove.
Our experience: This works. So if you do not have a case close at hand (and happen to have a balloon), use this trick.

6. Make A "tripod" From Tape And Rubber Bands.

6. Make a "tripod" from tape and rubber bands.
Take a roll of wide Scotch tape, place the phone in it, and secure it with rubber bands. Stick the structure to the place you want to take a picture from.
Our experience: Yup, this works! If you want to take a group photo and are bored of selfies, try this out.

2. Make A magnifying Glass From A drop Of water.

2. Make a magnifying glass from a drop of water.
Carefully place a drop of water on the phone’s camera, wait a minute, then look at a page with small text through the camera.
Our experience: This works, but the drop trembles tremendously and can fall at any moment. Unfortunately, it will be extremely inconvenient to read in this way, but you could use the hack to take macro photos.

1. Save A soaked Phone With Rice.

1. Save a soaked phone with rice.
We actually soaked a phone for this!
First you need to wipe the phone with a paper towel, take out the battery, and remove the SIM card. Then blow out the remaining water with a vacuum cleaner. Each part must be dried for 20 minutes. Finish by putting the phone in a rice bag overnight so that the rice absorbs any moisture residue.
Our experience: We managed to save the "victim," but the screen colors faded significantly, and the screen began to flash. The life hack worked only to some extent and did not return the smartphone to its previous state. Perhaps in such cases it is better to contact customer service, where your phone will get professional assistance.

Some of these life hacks totally worked, so we hope you’ll take note of them! But what if your phone dies as you’re searching for a balloon or Scotch tape?
There are tips on the Internet that promise to charge your phone in a minute. You may, for example, plug the charger into a potato or an apple (for real). Sadly, these don’t work. Something that could help you keep your phone alive is a solar panel case, but those can be difficult to find. Here’s a simple tip: charge your phone in flight mode, or completely turn it off for charging. This will get the deed done faster because the phone is not distracted by other things like updating apps.
