We love our phones. But did you know there’s far more functionality than texting and scrolling social media? Here are the most extraordinary things your phone can do that you may not know about!
Most camera apps integrate with translation apps, allowing you to translate signs in any language simply by taking a photo.
Have an important document that you need to be scanned? No need to head to the copy store – you can scan it into a pdf with your phone.
Most phones have a unique feature allowing you to call 911 on the sly. Pressing the side button multiple times usually does the trick.
Unfortunately, this leads to lots of 911 pocket dials, much to the displeasure of 911 operators.
Your photo gallery is far smarter than you think. You can search for colors, objects, and even places. Try searching for “cat” and see what it finds!
Some phones use location services to help you remember where you parked. It’s a lifesaver for those used to wandering aimlessly through the lot searching for the car.
There’s an app for nearly everything, even metal detection. Your phone can detect certain metals, which may be helpful in a pinch. Of course, you can’t expect your phone to be as good as a real metal detector.
Have you ever tried zooming in super close to the text so you can tap the exact place you want, but your fingers are still too big, so you rage quit?
Your phone has a built-in solution. Tap and hold the spacebar key, and you can easily move the cursor wherever you want.
When you’re out on a lovely wilderness walk and spot a cool insect or flower, you no longer have to wonder what it is. Most photo apps integrate with Google, so you can snap photos and search the web in seconds.
The basic calculator app works wonders for most of our needs, but sometimes, you need a little more. Most calculator apps have a built-in scientific calculator – simply turn your phone sideways to access the additional functions.
Your phone can act as a remote control for most household appliances. You no longer need to dig under the sofa cushions to find the right remote – just use your phone!
Did you know that all phones allow you to dial a number and speak to someone not in the room with you?
We jest, but few people use their phones as actual phones nowadays.
