Some more Tips for Smartphones

2 Comments

It is very hard nowadays to have a cell phone that is not a smartphone. They may seem intimidating to use, but you can easily step up your tech game by customizing your smartphone to give you more of what you need.

Are you having a hard time reading what is on your phone?

If you are an iPhone user, open Settings>Display & Brightness>Text Size. All you have to do is drag the slider to increase the text size to a setting that works best for you. You can also use the VoiceOver feature and have content read out loud to you. This setting, as well as Zoom and Magnifier Tools, can be found under Settings>General>Accessibility.

Android phones have similar settings. To increase your phone’s font size, go to Settings>Display>Font Size. Adjust your font size to your liking by selecting small, normal, large, or huge. However, the sizing will vary, depending on the phone you have.

Find yourself missing calls and texts?

Experiment with different ringtones and volume settings to better alert you. Go to Settings>Sounds and choose from countless combinations for each notification. Do you have hearing aids? Some hearing aids allow you to connect to your iPhone!

To adjust your ringtone volume, go to Settings>Sound. You’ll find a list of sound options where you can select different ringtones.

Do you find the home screen layout makes it hard to get to the features that matter most to you?

Some Android phones, like the Samsung Galaxy series, offer a simplified experience or Easy Mode. Easy Mode configures your home screen for an easier experience by providing a simpler layout and bigger icons. This is extremely helpful for people who are first-time smartphone users. You can use this setting by selecting Settings/Personalization > Easy Mode and following the instructions.
