Android Tricks-Hacks without rooting phone


Android tricks-hacks you can do without rooting phone

Many people think you need to go through the difficult and time consuming process of rooting your Android device to get the most out of it. While rooting does open up a world of new possibilities, there are plenty of cool Android tricks and hacks that don't actually require it. Here are some favorite hacks you can do on your Android device without rooting it.

Lock your phone, remotely:

There's nothing worse than losing your phone, apart from losing your phone and knowing that someone might have access to your data. But you know what's great? Feeling like superhero as your remotely stop someone poking their noses into that data. 
By using the Android Device Manager, you can take back control of your device if you ever lose it. You can even delete all of its data, if you wants so...

Bypass your security (in a secure area):

Setting up a trusted location means that your device won't require a security code when you use it in that place. Although there is a risk in doing this in public places – because you are making it easier to get into your phone – it’s a cool hack to use at home.

The way it works varies according to your device, but it involves going to your security settings and settings up a secure unlock method, such as a PIN code (if you haven't already).

Once this has been done, go to Smart Lock, enter your pin number and then hit Trusted places. Add a trusted location and you will no longer need to enter a PIN code to unlock your phone while you're in that place.

Secret Game:

Another well-known Android Easter egg among old-timers, the secret game might not be so obvious to newcomers.
Lollipop and Marshmallow’s game is based on Flappy Bird; it has the same game play principle but has had an Android-themed makeover graphics-wise.

Manage App Notifications:

Moving on one step further from the previous tip, after you’ve long-pressed the app you’ll see an information icon. Press it, and you’ll be presented with the notification settings for the app in question. You can do things like block all its notifications, allow it to override priority mode, and make it hide private information.

Change the Animation Scales:

For the most part, the latest Android phones already feel very snappy. However, after the latest Nexus 5X only shipped with 2GB of RAM, some users were left feeling a bit underwhelmed by Google’s hugely popular product line.There are also lots of popular entry-level phones that come with slower processors and only 1GB or 2GB of RAM.

One solution is to change your phone’s “Window animation scale”, “Transition animation scale” and “Animator duration scale” from 1x to 0.5x. Granted, it won’t actually make your phone faster, but it will make it feel faster.
Go to Settings > Developer options and scroll about two thirds of the way down the list to find the necessary options (you’ll need to have first enabled Developer Mode).
