Stanislav Kosarev, director of the Faculty of Information Technologies at Synergy University, named the functions of a smartphone that are useful, but unknown to many people. According to him, they can simplify the use of the gadget, but often users simply do not know about them, writes the Prime agency.
The expert noted that one of these tricks is the creation of links for contacts. So, they can be transferred to the work screen and call in one click, he said and added that the same can be done with other functions, for example, with incognito mode. You can also move the menu to the screen so that you have adjustments for brightness, volume and others at hand, this is especially true for devices with a large diagonal, the specialist added. To do this, you need to go to the accessibility features and select them.
In addition, you can speed up the animation of your smartphone, then it will work faster. “For these purposes, you need to enter the developer mode, which is often activated by pressing 7 times on the build number of your smartphone. Next, you need to find several animation points and speed them up twice – thus you will make your phone work faster than usual, which saves time, “Kosarev explained.
He noted another useful function, this is text playback by a smartphone, it is activated in the accessibility section. Another is the guest mode, it can be configured if the device is used by an outsider, to whom the person is not ready to reveal his personal data. To do this, open notifications, click on the user icon and select “add guest”, the expert concluded.
Earlier, the director of the information and analytical agency Telecom daily Denis Kuskov named ways to determine the location of a person by phone. He noted that the options are both legal and not. To legally find out the location, you can use the services of telecom operators, for example, “locator”, “radar”. Among the semi-legal ones are direction finder programs that can be installed only with the consent of the owner.
