Nowadays, the most used OS is Android, Almost 90 % of the smartphones belong to Android. But most of really dont’t know how to use an Android Smartphone perfectly. Below are 6 things we spotted that Android experts are doing differently from the rest.

1. Always take Back-up of your Smartphone on Daily ( if not possible than Weekly ) Basis

Have you ever been in a situation where you have to factory reset your Smartphone or may be you loose All important Data like media files, be it photos, videos or contact list and useful notes? Do you know anyone who has to send themselves emails just to keep an image they like, or an important link from disappearing? Do you have to turn to Facebook as a storage for the pictures you take with your smartphone? Well, there is another way that is much faster, more effective and professional.

Try Installing an Android app called Pushbullet – available for free on Google Store. How to use it : Install the app on both your smartphone and as well as Laptop / Desktop to see how easy it can be to link and keep track of whatever activity you are doing. Pushbullet helps you manage your account, whether it is sending and SMS, chatting on WhatsApp or sharing links and media files between your 2 devices.

Apart from this, you can also install other apps like Super backup for SMS and contacts, Mobile backup 3 for  Calendar, Contacts, SMS, Bookmarks and Call Log in SD Card, Apps Backup and Restore 2016 . The most useful App which I personally use is CM Backup for all the Data.

2. Bookmark Home Screen

Many smartphone browsers allow you to create a home screen launcher so that you can decide which page to go first. It is similar to Chrome browser on your laptop, you can pins the icon of the sites and reach it easily every time you need, like reaching an app. By doing this, you don’t just save time searching, but also save mobile data from loading another page and save cache memory for storing too much back up information.

3. Control Mobile Data Usage

Even if you are on Data pack, you always need to track Data Usage on Daily basis. But what if, you are not having Data package. In that case, controlling Data and expenses is a difficult Task. If you are on Pre-paid Smartphone, I may not be worried that much, but what if it’s Post-paid plan, you will come to know only at the end of Billing Cycle.

Always use your Data when you it’s very important or if you do not have access to Wi-fi. But issue is you do not even remember to turn off Data even when wi-fi is available. for all this i recommend use ” Tasker ” or ” Auto Disable Data “.

Remember ” Update Apps only on Wi-fi “.

  1. Open the Google Play Store app Play Store.
  2. Tap Menu Menu and then Settings.
  3. Tap Auto-update apps.
  4. Select an option:
    • Auto update apps at any time: Updates apps at any time, using either Wi-Fi or mobile data.
    • Auto-update apps over Wi-Fi only: Updates only when you are connected to Wi-Fi.

4. Voice Search

Like Siri, Use Voice search actively to save Time. To start, the “magical” phrase “Ok, Google” will open a whole new world of voice command and make a significant change to your Android experience. And what’s more interesting about this? Google Voice search does not only work in English, but also a wide variety of your native languages.

  1. Open the Google app Google .
  2. At the top left, touch Menu menu iconand then Settings and then Voice and then “Ok Google” Detection.
  3. From here, you can choose when you want your phone to listen when you say “Ok Google.”

5. Customize Apps : Keep Track of Apps

Downloading and keeping unnecessary apps will only eat away your free internal storage and slow down the multitasking process. Or to make the matter worse, sometimes the apps that are not in constant used are subjected to virus, putting your mobile in threat.
