We have moved way ahead of the times when feature phones used to be such a big deal. But with years passing by, smartphones have successfully substituted the feature phones of the yesteryear and now we have devices that are no less than technological achievements.
A phone in the recent past was meant for conducting calls and sending occasional texts. However, in recent times, a handset, of course with a help of few apps, can even set a voice alarm for you or place a pizza order.
But this post isn't about how big the smartphone business is doing in current times, or how well it has replaced the feature phone business. In fact, we are taking this opportunity to relate to a few things that your phone can do but you never knew about.
A smartphone can actually be credited for more than it meets the eye. Apart from the regular Facebooks and YouTubes, a handset can do so much more. And we are taking a closer look.
So here are the 5 top things that you phone can actually do but nobody ever told you about. Check the sliders below for more information.
Remote Camera Shutter Via Bluetooth
If you check the video here, you will see how easy it is to use Bluetooth headsets as remote shutters for a smartphone's camera. But actually there is a hack involved that allows you to do so. And even figuring out the button combinations the same can be tough.
Apparently, there's a free app called Samsung Power Sleep, for which users can donate the computational power of their mobile device for it. The app then checks out the data available and uploads the results to help researchers.
Connecting USB Sticks
Here is where the importance of USB OTGs come. With the functionality, we can connect few of the most common USB devices to newer Android-based smartphones and tablets. But then again, you will need an USB OTG in the first place. Check it out.
Check Out Infrared Light
The phone's camera has an unique feature. While our human eyes can'rt detect it. but a phone's camera can easily detect IR light. The cameras come fitted with sensors to detect IR radiation. Just hold you TV remote sensor below the camera and see the light that you never say before
Camera Into Microscope
You just need a drop of clean water on the camera. That's enough to turn it into a potential microscope for amateurs. The drop of water actually acts a separate lens for the camera that magnifies a subject two fold. It's quite interesting.
