It seems that people can’t get enough of Android tips so that’s why we are bringing you five very useful tips that can be applied on any Android-based device – smartphone, tablet etc. Don’t hesitate to try these tips because they are easy to apply and they will improve your overall Android experience.

Use advanced setting for your Wi-Fi connection

When we are talking about Android tips and tricks Wi-Fi-related questions are on the top of that list. If you are having trouble finding a good Wi-Fi hotspot and you want to get a notification every time there is an available hotspot you should definitely check the advanced setting section on your device. This is the place where you can also find your answers regarding connection quality and the place where you can find your MAC address.

Just go to the Wi-Fi settings through your menu (don’t use the part where you can only turn your Wi-Fi off and on) and find the menu located in the lower right corner (you will notice three dots). This is the place where you will find advanced settings.

Track your mobile traffic, Wi-Fi traffic, battery usage and process statistics

Do you occasionally check how much data your apps use? Open Settings, click on Data Usage and you will find out how much memory each app uses. Just click on one of them and you will get more information. You will be amazed how much internet traffic some of them use (mostly because of the ads). You can also check Wi-Fi statistics while you are there.

You should also open Settings and Battery and check which apps use the battery the most.

Location Reporting

Did you know that location reporting drains your battery very fast if it is left activated all the time? There is no need to leave it activated if you don’t use Google services that require location data.

Phone Encryption and Card Lock

It is always a good idea to apply extra security measures on your Android device. You can activate password protection on your SIM card for example. This is the best way to protect your phone against thieves. You can also install and activate Android Device Manager and don’t forget to lock the home screen too. All these options can be found in the Setting menu. The best part is that there are dozens of apps for home screen protection so make sure you find one that is reliable and visually attractive too. Android Device Manager allows users to easily locate their lost or stolen device and you can also lock and/or delete data from your device remotely.

Turn off NFC

Transferring data via wireless connection is the easiest and most convenient way to complete that task. The technology used in this process is called NFC technology. However, most users use this option only on certain occasions so there is no need for NFC to be turned on all the time. Activation of this option is very easy and it will take you only few clicks to turn it on again.
