You may turn the auto-update app’s function off in order not to confuse and overload your smartphone. This is really useful for those who have old or weak phones. By the way, you can block auto-updating of just one app.

There’s a My Wishlist feature on Google Play. If you find a great game but can’t find time to play it now, you can put it on your wishlist. So whenever you want, you can open your wishlist and install all the apps you’ve been saving.

Did you buy a new phone? That’s not a problem. All your apps are saved in a library folder. Go there, choose an app that you’d like to install, and download it.

Do you want to try features hidden in the newer Androids? Activate Developer Options that are located in settings. You’ll be able to use 50 new functions that will improve your phone’s functionality.

To make your phone battery live a bit longer, you can choose the Monochromacy Mode from the list of all the color space options available. The reduced number of colors will let you keep your smartphone battery from dying sooner.

To get a better view of small details, you’ll need your phone and an old laser pointer. In a laser pointer, there’s a focusing lens glued in there that you’ll have to remove. All you have to do is attach the lens to your phone’s camera. That’s it!
