Making The Most Out Of Your New Phone

Shiny new phone? Right out of the box? Bet you that it cost you a lot of cash. If that’s the case, why wouldn’t you want to make the most of it? You owe it to yourself, your phone and your depleted bank balance to do so. Whether it’s an Apple iOS model, a Windows Phone or a Android phone by Google – you’ve got to make the most out of it.

Firstly – protect it. Grab some insurance – either third party or via a reward banking account. If you break your phone, you’ll limit your costs and you won’t have to pay full price for a new one. If that’s not an option, get a glass screen protector and a study case to keep it safe – and of course, be a responsible owner. Make the most out of a phone by protecting it – a broken and inoperational phone is one thing. However, a phone that has become handicapped because of a blow is frustratingly useless. Protect your phone!

Now – once your phone is protected, we can start making the most out of your phone truly via the use of apps.

Firstly, you need to communicate – KIK and Whatsapp are great ways of sharing content and talking to friends. What’s more you can use Kik messenger on PC Desktop and use Whatsapp via the internet web browser you are using right now. This means that you can take your small screen conversations onto the big screen for ease.

If you’ve got an NFC (near field communication) capable phone, you can use it for one huge thing – payment. Google Pay, PayPal, and Apple Pay allow you to transform your phone into a bank card with a number of useful security features. You can also link these apps with bank cards and loyalty cards so you aren’t always rooting for plastic in your wallet.

Your phone might be great, but your data plan might not be – if you are trying to save costs especially. There are plenty of apps that you can use if you want to save data. Opera Max is one of these and this browser is amazing. It’s slick, fast and beats down the amount of data your current browser is eating up. Opera Max slims down the amount of data you are using by limiting the size of pics and files on the internet. Opera Max is a better version of your default browser, especially if you are not connected to WiFi. Pocket can also save your phone’s data bill – you go onto it and download the articles you want to read for offline use. Like your phones very own newspaper!

It doesn’t stop there – no matter what you want to do – your smartphone can help you. Want to get fit? Download MyFitnessPal, Lifesum, Runtastic or Google Fit to help with your fitness plans. Want to read? Kindle. There is almost unlimited use for smartphones and that use will only increase as new apps constantly come out for new phones.
