4 smartphone hacks you need to know

Our smartphone is basically our best friend; the gatekeeper to the ugly selfies that you forget to delete, we can't live without it!  But did you know that your smartphone has other pretty cool uses?Check out these top smartphone hacks that will literally change your life.

1. The sound system hack

Imagine this scenario: You're sitting in your friend's back yard and you've found this amazing new track by your favorite artist, yet your friend's dock doesn't have an adaptor to plug your phone into in order to play it out loud, (annoying huh?). Did you know that if you grab a glass or bowl that's big enough to fit your phone into, it acts as a sound amplifier which means you'll never be without a portable speaker!

2. The lamp hack

Do you find the flashlight on your phone to be a bit limited? Enhance that light by placing a transparent water bottle, full of water, over the torch and there you have the perfect makeshift lamp!

3. The charging hack

We're always wishing that our phone would charge quicker. More time plugged into the wall means less screen time! To speed up your charging time simply turn on flight mode and all your apps will pause in order to let your phone re-juice. Who knew it could be so easy?
