Smartphones have become an indispensable tool for nearly everyone, and not just because it’s the primary tool of communication for most people. Smartphones are actually a partner for a lot of users now thanks to the ability to schedule and track appointments, play media, capture photos, and access various useful services.
With the world gripped by the COVID-19 pandemic, smartphones have become even more important, especially as people use phones as a means to keep in touch with friends/family, as well as be in contact with workmates. Phones are also a great companion to pass the time while at home.
Even with how useful smartphones are now, not every user takes full advantage of the capabilities of their device. In light of this, Samsung shares a couple of ways to get the most out of your smartphone:
Tools for Entertainment
Samsung phones are renowned as great media devices thanks to their excellent displays, and the new Galaxy phones such as the A71 or the S20 lineup are no different. These aforementioned Samsung devices come with large AMOLED panels, making them a great partner for a Netflix binge-watch session.
It might be tempting to lay in bed all day while watching movies/series, but to keep healthy while under quarantine, we all have to stay active. To do this at home, a smartphone is a big help! With your phone, you can watch (and emulate) workout videos or even join virtual fitness classes.
If you have a Galaxy smartphone, you can take advantage of the built-in Samsung Health app which tracks a users’ recent workouts, food and water intake, weight, and sleeping habits.
Sources of Learning
With school suspended, a smartphone is a great device to let children continue learning. For example, Galaxy Tab devices have the Samsung Kids+ app which has a library of fun activities, books, and education videos.
For grown-ups, e-books and online news sites are easily accessible, and readable using a Galaxy Tab device.
Finally, phones can now be used as a primary productivity device. If you’re experiencing some problems with your PC or laptop for example, a phone such as the Note 10 or the S20 series can be used instead for MS Office apps.
