Make Your Android Smartphone Feel New Again With These Tips



Make Your Android Smartphone Feel New Again With These Tips 1
This post is also an extract from an article I wrote for Pulse Nigeria –

You’ve used
your phone for quite a while and it seems like it’s becoming old but it
actually isn’t.
The problem
might actually be that you’ve not made some certain changes to your device
that’ll make it look different. In this post I’ll be giving tips on how to do
that with ease.
Make Your Android Smartphone Feel New Again With These Tips 2
Download A Launcher
Downloading a new launcher can actually help change the dull look of
your phone and make it feel new again. There are thousands of launchers available
on Google Play.
There’s GO launcher, Zero Launcher, Nova Launcher and more. I advise you
install just one on your phone to avoid allocating unnecessary storage space to
launchers and slowing down your phone. I recommend Nova launcher, It’s smooth,
lightweight and fast.  You can also
download themes and wallpapers with matching icons right from the launcher
2.       Download an Icon Pack
Most Launchers come with a default icon set but also allows you play
with your icons and change them and the easiest way to do that is to install an
icon pack. There are thousands of icon packs on the Play Store. You can even
use iPhone icons on your Android Smartphone.
3.        Uninstall Unused and Unnecessary Apps
Remember that app you used when you needed to do something last time, are
you actively using it? If you aren’t, I think it’s time you uninstall it. Apps
take up space and on the long run can make your phone feel slow and old. It’s
very important you remove apps you don’t use and delete their apk’s from your
file manager
4.       Install A System Update
Remember that update you’ve been dreading because you don’t have data?
Brother subscribe and update your phone. Updates usually come with bug fixes
that’ll improve the device and sometimes it comes with a full UI over haul. If
your phone is rooted make sure you unroot it and back up your files before
5.       Wipe The Phone Completely
This should be a last resort. If you’ve tried everything to make it feel
new again maybe that initial welcome screen would give you that nostalgic new feeling.
Reset the phone and it should be as good as new

Whatsapp Set To Ban Users Of GBwhatsapp and Other Whatsapp Clone Apps 13

I can remember making a post about the dangers of using clone apps like GB Whatsapp and the rest now Whatsapp has released an official statement concerning users of these apps and you will have no Alternative but to switch to the regular app or else.

Using third-party Whatsapp applications like GB Whatsapp has become quite popular because of the features they offer. For example, you can disable the blue tick/secondary tick and even hide the fact that you are viewing other people’s Whatsapp stories, giving you the ability to stay anonymous on Whatsapp.

However, the dangers they pose are often ignored by a lot. For example, these platforms could secretly store your data and that doesn’t even cover everything!

WhatsApp has issued a warning against the continued use of clone apps like WhatsApp Plus and GB WhatsApp, citing security concerns as the primary reason. The Facebook-owned app will ban user accounts created in those clone platforms.

According to new reports, Whatsapp is set to ban accounts of users who have been using these third-party platforms.

Even though this is a temporary ban, Whatsapp didn’t specify how long the ban is going to last. However, reports claim that users would be advised to switch back to the supported Whatsapp version to lift the ban.

According to Whatsapp:

If you received an in-app message stating your account is ‘Temporarily banned’ this means that you’re likely using an unsupported version of WhatsApp instead of the official app. You must download the official app to continue using WhatsApp.”
