5 things you didn't know your android phone could do

1. Voice search

Your Android wants to help you out; it’s just waiting on the word. Google will help to send an email or text, or even figure out what song is playing on your mobile just by listening to you. Click on the microphone icon in Google search (or say “OK Google”) and send an email or text (just say, “Text Siri, Where are you?” or “Email John, When are you coming?” and hit send), or email yourself a reminder (“Note to self, call John”). You can even find out about the weather or traffic (“Do I need an umbrella today?” or “How is the traffic now at East Zone”), track your flights or packages (if you’ve gotten confirmation emails), figure out what song is playing on your mobile (”what’s that song?”) or simply ask any research question you’d otherwise type into the search bar. Google listen will find it out 

2. Scan Barcodes with your Android

Your camera on your Android smartphone can also be used as a barcode scanner with apps like Barcode Scanner. The app works with QR codes as well as barcodes and there are plenty of third-party apps on the Google Play Store that do the same job.

3. Unlock hidden animations

Extra animations on your phone are always needed. If you have Android Lollipop head to Settings – About device – tap “Android Version” hold down until it displays. For more animations in Android KitKat – Press down on the red logo until displays appear.

4. Remotely lock, unlock, alarm and even freakin' start your car!
Always losing your keys? The Viper SmartKey system allows you to replace your car keys with your phone. When enabled, you can lock and unlock your car (and even disarm an alarm) without even taking your phone out of your pocket. Source: WindowsCentral

5. Check whether your remote's batteries are dead when it stops working.Your smartphone's camera is indeed sensitive to IR radiation, and if you want to try it for yourself, just use a common IR remote control. The infrared beam emitted when a button is pressed will show as white or purple light in the viewfinder of your camera app. You can use this trick to check if a remote control's batteries are dead when it stops working.
