How to Use Your Smartphone, Smartly
Some tips to get maximum out of you smartphone
 
Smartphones have been around for years. Yet, there are several users who find it difficult to use the device smartly. Here, we discuss Android-based devices, as these are most popular due to low costs and easy availability.  
 

How to get 3G data connection all the time?

The majority of the mobile phones have default settings for choosing either GSM or GSM/WCDMA preferred for data connectivity. The difference is when you use GSM network for data connectivity; you will get 2G speed, denoted by ‘E’ (Edge). In case, you are wondering why you are receiving only E when you are paying for 3G speed, the culprit, in most cases, is the selection in data connection/network.
 
Go to Setting>Data Setting/More Setting>Mobile Networks>
 
Here, you will find certain settings like enabling data, preferred network type, access point names (apn) and network operators. 
 
Hope you have the data enabled. If not, then enable it. Next, open the preferred network type. Here, you need to select 3G or WCDMA Only. After selecting, wait for a few seconds. You will see ‘3G’ or ‘H+’ symbol next to your network signal in the status bar. If it is there, only then you will receive 3G data. If not, then you need to check the APN setting. (TIP: for some mobiles, you need to put in a code to change preferred network. For example, pressing *#*#4636#*#* in Yureka gives you the option to choose preferred network and check other parameters. But use or change this settings at your own risk.)
 
Every mobile operator has different APN settings for 3G and 2G networks. Check the 3G APN settings for your operator over the Internet. Make sure the fields of proxy, port, username and password are left blank. Save it and you should now get the desired 3G network.
 

How to improve performance?

One of the issues with Android devices is low RAM, internal memory and fast draining of battery. Unfortunately, you cannot replace the RAM, internal memory or add a more power battery. So here are some tips that would give more power to your Android device.
 
1. Move apps to SD card: If your device is low on internal memory, moving apps to SD card helps in giving more space. Go to Settings>App Manager. Here, you can check which app is occupying more space. Open the app. Here, you will find the option to move the app to SD card. If it is there, then do it. If it is not there, the device-maker has not provided this feature and you have to use other app and see if you can do this.
 
2. Improve performance: For this, you need to enable the Developer Options. Go to Settings>About Device. Here you will find the 'Build number' of the Android. Touch it for seven times, and voila! You have the developer options enabled. To improve performance, try reducing the window, transition and animator animation scales to minimum. If allowed, use GPU for screen compositing and force GPU rendering. In addition, in the Apps setting, select the Do Not Keep activities. This will kill the apps as soon as you stop using it.
 
If search is allowed in your device under settings, type performance. Under System>Processor, set the minimum and maximum frequency. Importantly, set the CPU governor setting to ‘OnDemand’. Select set on boot and reboot your device. This not only helps saving battery, but also keeps the device cool.
 

How to protect your device

The best way to keep your mobile handset safe and secure is the use a full pouch. This not only protects the device from unwarranted scratches, but also provides a cushion in case of accidental fall.
