For most of us, our cell phones are one of the most important items in our life. We all have one in our pocket, and we use them for an increasing number of everyday activities. But is your phone doing all it could be doing for you? As it happens, there are a lot of ways in which you can make more of your phone, and in this article we are going to take a look at some of the best of those methods. The following ways will empower your phone to do more for you, and become even more of a useful tool in your daily life.

Monetize It

Believe it or not, there are numerous ways to set your phone up to make money for you, and this is something that a lot of people are looking into right now as a way to make their phone more appealing and exciting. You can use it to download a robo-trading app, for instance, which will trade in stocks and shares on your behalf and – hopefully – earn you some money. However, that is not risk free, so bear that in mind. Alternatively, you can sign up to a service where your phone is used to partially mine bitcoin, thereby earning you cryptocurrency in the process.

Find Out Who’s Calling You

Nobody enjoys that feeling of receiving a phone call from a strange number. If you have often found yourself wondering whether there is anything to do about that, the answer is yes. The general idea here is to use a reverse phone lookup service, which can find out the name of the person calling just from the number. It doesn't work every single time, but more often than not you will be able to discern just who is calling you.

Make It Last Longer

Many people complain about their phone’s battery length, especially Apple users. If you are keen to try and get your phone to last a little longer, there are many ways to do that. First of all, be careful about your brightness settings, as this is the single biggest drain on your battery. Secondly, you should aim to keep the background processes to a minimum – and you can get an app to do that for you, if you like. Then it’s just a case of making sure you don’t overcharge your phone, which is easy these days as phones generally stop charging after they reach the limit.

Update It

Finally, if your phone is not at the latest update, you should make sure that you change this as soon as you can. Keeping the phone updated is likely to make a huge difference to how it functions, as well as how secure it is, so it is doubly important to look into this. If you can’t find an update at present, just set it to update automatically for the next one that comes out. That way, you don’t even need to do anything to keep it updated in the future.
