But I suppose even though you have got associate degree iPhone you would possibly still realize it reasonably fascinating. a list of Top 10 Hidden Android Features Tips and Tricks so well known tips, tricks, and features in Android. Most of these should work with version 6 and later, but I'll tell you if that's not the case. So anyway, without further a due, let's start all those features.

Developer optionsThis is one of the hidden "Developer options" menu, which isn't too much of a secret, but I definitely can't leave it out. And this menu has all forms of cool advanced settings not sometimes accessible, which we can get to in a bit.

To access the menu, go to Settings, then go to "About Phone", then scroll down to where it shows "Build Number". Then just keep tapping on the "Build Number" and it will start counting down until it says "You Are Now a Developer". After that, currently, once you move to the Settings app, there will be a new menu under System called Developer Options. In here you will find all forms of settings, some of which are absolutely useless to the average user, and others that aren't.

2 Animation scale- this is specifically one of the useful settings here, the Animation scale. If you scroll down in the developer options, you'll see, well really three options control "Animation Scale", which controls how fast or slow the animations of the operating system are played.

What this suggests, for instance, is when opening an app, closing an app, transitioning through menus, all of that will be played faster or slower. I personally have mine set to 0.5x, which means that each animation takes half as long, or twice as fast.

This makes the phone feel rather more snappy since everything appears to respond faster. You can also turn off animations altogether, so there's no delay. However typically with animations off, certain apps can start to misbehave, so just be aware of that.

If for a few reasons you wished, you may build animations slower, however, watch out once setting it to 10x, as a result of it'll take forever to disable it once more since you have to wait really long.

Widgets -This is very useful, I think at least, and it is a notification log widget. I ask you, did you ever pop up a notification on your phone, and you either swiped it unintentionally, or it might just disappear before you see it, and you think, "Oh no, what did it say?" Okay, this will solve it. What you do is create a new widget by long-pressing on the home screen, go to "Widgets", (and it can look different on your phone), then find "Settings shortcut" and drag and drop on it please home screen.

Once you do this, it will show you a selection of different settings that you can choose for that shortcut. There are other useful ones that you can check later, but for now, you want to choose "Information Log". In it, you can scroll through all your recent notifications, and it will show you a bunch of technical data for each, which the notification said, labeled as "android.text".

This is also useful if the text of the notification is short, and it won't show you what the whole thing says. This is definitely one that I find really useful.

4, Offline Google MapsWhat this lets you do is select a large area in Google Maps that will be downloaded and stored on your phone. The most obvious use of this is to download an area of a few miles around you, which you can use often.

That way, instead of you downloading a map as a drive and using data, you can download an entire area at a time during WiFi. It has two benefits, one, it will save you cellular data, and two, it will speed up Google Maps, because you don't have to wait every time to download anything, it's already everything.

In addition, it will automatically update the offline map over WiFi, so you are covered there. It also does not take up too much space. The largest area you download may be worth about 2 gigabytes, but it will cover a large part of your state or perhaps the country.

5, Android Easter Egg- this is kinda fun, android easter egg game. Each version of Android has a different feel, but you usually access them in the same way. You go into settings about the phone, and then where it says the Android version, just tap a bunch of times. What I'm using in Android 7 will bring up the Android 7 Nougat logo, and then from here you will quickly tap on the logo several times, and then long-press it.

If it shows no signal, you do not tap it enough times. If you do, it will show a cat emoji, meaning that you have activated the cat game. Now if you go into Quick Settings and hit Edit, there will be a new shortcut option for "Android Easter Egg", which you drag into the shortcut bar.

The game is very simple, you click on the dish and skip the food, and then every time different cats will appear at once, and you collect them. And that's it, kinda weird.

6, Explore- another very useful one, is the built-in file explorer. Most people find that you need a third-party app to browse through the phone's file system, but in fact, a basic one is already included. To achieve this, simply go to Settings, Storage and click "Explore" below, and there you are. You can search files, create new folders, copy and move files, delete them, all of that. You'll still need a third-party app to upgrade anything, but it should cover all the basics. moving on,

7, System UI Tuner- This is another secret menu that is not enabled by default, with some useful settings. However not all manufacturer versions may have this. To enable this, simply pull down the quick options, you may have to do this twice, and look for the wrench and gear at the top.

Just hold it down and hold it until it animates or vibrates and that's it. Now when you go into settings, there will be a new menu, called "System UI Tuner", which will have all kinds of options. For example, always showing the battery percentage in the status bar, which I consider necessary. There are also "power notification controls" that allow you to control what notifications different apps can show.

Like if there is an app that is really annoying, you can limit its notifications, or block them completely. Other options include enabling or disabling the icon in the status bar and showing the clock not just hours and minutes but also seconds. next,

8, to force multi-window mode to allow apps. In Android 7 you now have the option to show multiple apps simultaneously, but some apps do not allow this. However, you can force them to revert to the developer options we previously enabled, and enable "force activities to be enabled". Now any app that would not allow multi-window at first, but keep in mind that they can perform strange tasks because they don't technically support the feature. Almost at the end,

9, Data saver mode- It's not really hidden, but it's disabled by default, and I think it may only be available in Android 7. To achieve this, go to "Settings", Data Usage then clicks on Data Saver. This is basically limited to when apps can access data unless you specifically give it unrestricted data access.

So it seems to enable turning on the data saver mode for all apps, then you go into it and disable it individually for some. Alternatively, however, there is a way to enable data-saving for Google Chrome, as it is actually built into it. If you go to Chrome, Settings, you'll see an option for Data Saver, which compresses websites before loading them.

This actually seems to be a different thing to Chrome altogether, though. Android Data Saver has a limit when apps can access data, but Chrome compresses a site to reduce usage. Finally, everything is fine

10, Quick battery usage- You probably already know that if you go into settings, you can see battery statistics, such as usage over time, how much time is left. But there is actually a faster way to see that information. If you just swipe down the notification bar, you can tap on the battery icon, and it will show you mostly the same.

Obviously, you can see the percentage, but also to see how much time is left, the toggle for battery usage graph and battery saver mode. It can save you a few clicks, and to search through the settings, so it is very convenient.

So, this is that those are the Top 10 Hidden Android Features Tips and Tricks that I thought you guys would like to know about. you've probably heard of some of them, but hopefully, you at least learned something new. If you guys have any suggestions though for features I missed, definitely let us all know down in the comments.
