10 Great Uses For Your Old Android Smartphones

Entertainment, Tech

So you got a new phone for Christmas, and you look around your room to find a few other phones lying around. You can sell them, or give them away to friends and family, but there are some better ideas for your cast-away devices.

10. Gym/Exercise device

If you are a gym or exercise enthusiast, you can convert your old smartphone into your very own fitness buddy. Download apps, centered around getting and keeping yourself in shape. Great fitness apps such as Map my Fitness, Workout Trainer, and JEFIT will do the job.


9. GPS for your car

Let’s admit it, we don’t always know where we are going. So loading up your phone with mapping apps like Citymapper, Google Maps, and Waze will make you look like an expert tour guide. And seeing that it is not your primary phone anymore you won’t be interrupted by phone calls or notifications.


8. TV remote control

A simple use for the device. Purchase a cheap smartphone dock, and place it right by your bedside and viola… you have an alarm clock.

Make it into your entertainment center. A Chromecast streaming device or a micro USB-to-HDMI cable, with Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, Spotify, and Pandora apps. Not to mention games, and music.



5.  Digital photo frame

Place the phone on a mount on the car dashboard, with the camera facing outside. You have just created your life saver in case of insurance (in terms of witnessing an accident, in order to make a claim).



2. Wi-Fi extender


Boost the WiFi signal throughout your house with apps like fqrouter2, which takes the signal and repeats it. It will require you to root the device for it to work though.

There is a whole industry dedicated to Christmas lingerie. Role playing is a must, with one of you being naughty and the other even naughtier.  In case you didn’t already know, just the color red gets us horny.



Use bells during playtime

Make a card with really sexy pictures, or a really dirty letter of what you wish to do to your partner. Just make sure that it is stored in a place where only they can have access to it. Don’t want granny coming and getting a glimpse into your dirty mind.



Give your partner a sexy pinup calendar featuring you

Get 12 really sexy pictures of you and create a calendar for the next year. You can even mix it up with photos of you and your honey in suggestive positions.



Play the Mistletoe game

Never heard of the mistletoe game? It’s simple, one of you is blindfolded and you throw the mistletoe on your partner’s body. Wherever it lands you must kiss for five seconds. The partner that is enjoying the kiss can move the mistletoe and have fun in the process. Remember to switch after 30 mins.



Play “Sexmas”

Christmas time is the time when you visit family, friends and enjoy different types of foods. So here is a game you can play. Sexmas, where you must have sex in every house you visit. How do you do it? That’s totally up to you. The bathroom is always a good spot. But you cannot get caught. If you are, then the game is over.



Superheroes from the Caribbean

Superheroes from the Caribbean

Entertainment, Film

Now, of course, we know Television series such as The Flash, Supergirl, and Gotham are controlling the superhero industry (in T.V. land) at the moment, but persons within our shores are actually developing their own franchises. So Pellau Magazine got a hold of two Caribbean trailblazers who have taken strides to develop their own unique brand of Superheroes.

Firstly Ancil Harris, the actor, director, illustrator, producer, and owner of Ville Ventures Production Company , from Trinidad and Tobago is currently filming his T.V. series based on the comic, Tarsin (developed by him). Tarsin is a vigilante, dedicated to protecting the citizens of Trinidad and Tobago. The series is said to take flight in 2017.  You can check out the comic at https://villeventures.com/2016/11/19/ville-ventures-comics-will-launch-3-comics-in-january/

And the other “Stan Lee” in the making is Albert Pierre. Pierre alongside, Sean Francis and Daniel Pond created the Caribbean’s first Team of Superheroes called Caribbean Justice. This story was created around many non-fictional aspects of Caribbean Culture. The characters are based off real life historical Caribbean Personality.
