Chrome Home

The first on the list which a surprisingly low number of Android users have even heard of is chrome home. As we know Google chrome an application on the Android is great, in fact for some people the best browser out there. But actually there is some setting you can change. Head over to the tab and type chrome://flags and what you will end up getting is Google’s experimental menu. This are almost like the beta features they never rolled out in the application which they want people to constantly test. From here you can active Google home mode and that takes the url bar from the top of the phone to the bottom. It will also add core new transitions into it. This setting will make it easy for you to search and swap through the url bar.

 

3X Magnification

This is another good setting you should try out especially for people that have reading difficulties. But it is pretty much useful for everyone. After turning it on in the accessibility setting, basically it will allow you to zoom into your phone screen 3x no matter the type of application, just tap you screen three times. It will allow you to Zoom into some applications that don’t manually zoom pictures in other to check some things. Even in the camera app if you want to see what your capturing in more detail just  triple tap your screen.

Immediate Look

In this one we are taking a security angle. What happens some time is that when your Android device screen turns off it doesn’t lock instantaneously. It normally takes 5 to 10 seconds before the screen locks, which means anyone that manages to pick or pinch the phone from you can still use it fully. There is actually a setting that allows you to lock your phone instantly once you press the power button.

 

Double Tap To Open Camera

One setting you must absolutely need to turn on which doesn’t come by default in most phones, is the double tap to open the camera. It is really beneficial to those that full there phone with lots of apps making it difficult for them to find their camera manually. Also for people with big phones that find it hard to navigate through their phone, It may take them 5 to 10 seconds to find their camera.  There is actually a setting for that in the settings which will allow you to turn on your camera with just double tap of your power button.

New Apps

One thing I find annoying about android devices is that you spend so much time customizing your home screen making it look pretty. But every time you download a new app from playstore it will automatically add it to your home screen clustering the whole thing up. However you can disable it in your phone settings. There in the settings you can turn it off so that when you download your application they will slide to the app draw and won’t miss up your home.
