Top 5 Phone Life Hacks


Posted on 03/08/17

So smart phones are pretty much the greatest invention of all time. ... Sliced bread ain’t got nothing on the iPhone.

But for all the time we spend surgically attached at the wrist to our precious devices, chances are we probably aren’t really making the most of them. 

Here are our Top 5 Phone Life Hacks that could make you the Bear Grylls of modern life.

1. Double Tap the space bar.
Think of all the texts you send. Think of all the full stop and space bar combos you’ve typed in all your life. That shiz takes a mini micro second every time. 

But what if I told you that double tapping the space bar fills in the full stop and a space??? How much easier does that make life!?! Try it out on your phone and add like a year of extra free time to the end of your life (probably*)

2. Instant Speakers

So you’re the only one in the squad with Spotify premium and you wanna get a vibe going with your awesome tunes. If the max volume on your phone speakers just isn’t cutting it, prepare to crank those tunes up to eleven with this nifty hack. Put your phone in a large glass or a bowl and this will reverberate the sound and make it travel farther essentially making it seem louder. So easy! 

3. Travel Phone Stand

If you’ve ever found yourself dropping your phone on your own face watching Netflix  (all the time)  then this is the hack for you. Use your sunglasses as a makeshift phone holder! No DIY required and you can and you can free your hands up for more important things .... like eating crisps. 

4. Instagram/Airport Mode
If you want to use the Instagram filter on your pics but don’t wanna post them online, flick your phone onto airplane mode. The perfected images will automatically download to your camera roll without having to waste data uploading them. 

5. Phone Lamp

This is the best thing ever for camping! If you need to have a makeshift lamp, turn on the torch function on your phone, then place a full water bottle on top of your phone. The water will refract the light creating a nice atmospheric glow. 

Bonus: and did you know you can use it to like actually *phone people*?!      Cray, I know.
