Your Android device has so many secret codes and features that you will be astonished to know what you can see and do with your Android device. While the Settings menu in Android offers many information and customization options, quite enough for an average user, these secrets tricks for Android phones allow you to do more than that. Following are some inconspicuous Android settings that you can use.
- Testing and Device Info
Dial *#4636#* for a lot of information about your device that is not available in settings menu. This includes phone, battery, and Wi-Fi information.
- Send Someone Straight to Voicemail
If you do not want to be bothered by a certain person, instead of blocking the number, which might be ruder than you want, you can send this number straight to voicemail. Go to contact and view additional info section, or the menu, for the option to send this contact directly to voicemail. Please note that the exact place and name of this option might vary from phone to phone.
- Download Maps
This secret trick for Android phones works on any device running Google maps. If you are going to an area where you do not have mobile data available, you can download that particular area in Google maps. Go to settings and look for the option to download the map for offline use.
- USB Drive
You do not need to carry your USB drive everywhere in order to copy files. Just attach your phone to a PC using a USB cable and select Media Transfer Protocol or USB storage device. The wording of the prompt might vary from one device to another.
- Turn On Pin Screen for Security
You can use this secret trick for Android phones on newer versions only. Search the settings for pin screen function and enable it. Now, pin a certain application before you give your mobile to anyone and he or she will not be able to view any other app or data.
