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

6. TV remote control

Can’t find your remote? We got a special use for your old smartphone for that. If your smartphone has an infrared emitter, you are set. Download a TV remote app and there you go… a universal remote.
