Our cell phones have evolved so much in the last decade that we think we know exactly what we can use them for. Many of us have no idea how helpful smartphones can be these days. Thanks to the enormous advances in mobile phone technology, our mobile phones can now fulfil a whole range of functions that can help us enormously in our private and professional lives. Don’t know what features we mean? In this article, we’re going to describe a few of the different tasks you didn’t know your smartphone could do.
Use Your Smartphone As A Remote Control
Has it happened again? You wanted to make yourself comfortable on the couch and switch on one of your favourite programs but can’t find the remote control? A common problem, and we waste far too much time digging into the edges of our sofas and searching every inch of the room to find our remote controls. Well, that suffering could finally end if you use your smartphone as a remote control.
For example, some Android devices have custom remote control features that you can find in the system settings. So you can use your smartphone as a remote control. But don’t worry if your smartphone doesn’t have such a feature – there are plenty of apps out there, which you can download from the App Store. You, too, can enjoy never having to look for your remote control again.
Take Many Different Photos And Videos
We often take for granted some things that our smartphone can do for us, and the quality of the images we can capture is undoubtedly one of them. Sure, the standard phone camera is now of such good quality that you don’t even think about not using your phone to take a picture. But there are many different apps that you can use to get even more out of the various functions of your camera. For example, some apps let you apply filters to your videos, change the pitch of your voice, the way you move, and even the speed at which the world seems to be moving around you.
Our cell phones have come an incredibly long way from being just big blocks that we could talk into. Nowadays, they can be used for so many different tasks that they go unnoticed. We’ve rounded up a few of the best things we can do with our smartphones in this article.
