Whether you’re new to Android and excited to try out every available option you see on the screen, or want to become familiar with the system, including the annoyances that annoy you every day, tips and tricks for exploring your system. Here I try to help you to try out android.
In this post, I feature 10 useful Android tips and tricks that can improve your experience while using your Android device. Note that the steps may vary slightly from one Android phone to another due to differences in build and OS versions, but if you want to play around it can’t hurt, because the method doesn’t really make much of a difference.
1. Disable App Notifications
Annoyed by annoying app notifications that keep popping up? In case you didn’t know, these app notifications also drain your phone battery. If you want to turn it off, here’s how:
On each unwanted notification in your notification bar, long press on the notification for the message box to appear.
Tap App Info > Show Off Notifications > OK.
2. Disable Cellular Data
Whenever you don’t need to stay connected to the internet, disabling Cellular Data can help keep your smartphone battery from draining quickly. Turn off cellular data how to:
Go to Settings > Data Usage.
Disable Cellular data by changing the setting from ON to OFF.
3. Set Cellular Data Limit
Want to track how far your mobile data usage is each month? If you have ICS and above, there is a feature that lets you track how much quota you have left.
Go to Settings > Data Usage.
Set your data limit by dragging the orange line to reflect your monthly quota.
Set your data usage cycle based on when your “month” starts and ends, and ends.
You will be notified once you reach the limit you have set. Note that the data usage tracked on your phone may differ slightly from that of your carrier’s tracking.
4. Add Multiple Google Accounts
You need a Google account to use an Android phone but did you know you can choose to run more than one Google account on your Android device. This is convenient if you use more than one account for some of your Google services. To add multiple Google accounts:
Go to Settings > Add account.
Select Google and set up a New or Existing Google account.
Once added, select what you want to sync with the account.
Repeat all the steps above if you want to add more accounts.
5. Disable Automatic App Updates
Prefer to read through app permissions and manually choose which app update to update? You can, but first you need to disable your automatic app updates. Here are the steps:
Open the Play Store and go to Settings.
Tap on Auto-update apps.
Select Don’t update apps automatically.
If you want to enable automatic updates, follow the same path and select Automatically update apps any time or over Wi-Fi (available for certain Android devices only).
To update your apps manually, just open the Play Store, and on the main page swipe from the left and tap on My apps. You can tap apps with pending updates and update them manually, or if you want to update them all at once, just tap Update All.
6. Checking Android system Update
For Android users using stock ROMs, you may want to look for new updates for your system. To check for updates:
Go to Settings > About phone/tablet.
Tap System update.
Tap Check now to look for system updates.
7. Changing the Default Application
If you’ve set some default apps for a specific task (e.g. using Chrome to open web links) but want to change this:
Go to Settings > Applications.
Swipe right and look for the All tab.
Select the app you want to remove as default.
Tap on Clear defaults.
8. Set Home Screen Shortcut With Folder
After you install a lot of apps, your homescreen might be filled with app shortcuts. Unlike the app drawer, the apps on your home screen are not arranged alphabetically. So you might want to create some folders for your homescreen shortcuts.
Assuming you have more than a few shortcuts already on your homescreen, long press on one of the shortcuts and drag it to another.
A circle should now appear around the app, indicating that the folder has been created.
By tapping on the newly created folder, a mini window will appear with your apps in it.
You can drag and drop additional apps into the folder if you like. You can also rename the folder by tapping the text area at the bottom of the mini window.
9. Disable Animation
Here’s a tip on how to make your Android device run more smoothly: disable animations. You should have access to Developer Options which can be found under Settings or About device.
Note: For some phones, you may need to go to the Build number and tap it repeatedly until you see “You are now a developer!”. Developer options are now enabled.
Under Enabled Developer options, look for Window animation scale, Transition animation scale, and Animator duration scale. Then, turn off (disable) one by one.
10. Turn off AutoCorrect
Hate the fact that your phone will go into language teacher mode on you? Turn off auto-correction for peace of mind when texting.
Go to Settings > Language & input.
Tap the settings icon next to the keyboard you are using, e.g. Google Keyboard.
Look for Autocorrect and tap on it.
Select Off to turn off autocorrect.
