9 life hacks every smartphone user should know
According to the internet, you can pop popcorn using a cell phone's radiation, recharge a phone by plugging its charger into a banana, and make your phone's battery last 50% longer by typing in a secret code. Sadly, not everything they say online is true, and these three are nothing but popular hoaxes.

In contrast, the smartphone life hacks we're about to share with you really work. What's a life hack, you ask? Well, think of it as a trick that makes your life easier. Like knowing where to plug your phone to charge it when there's no charger around. Or knowing how to protect any phone against sand or water damage while on the beach. Or knowing how to use a phone as a metal detector. 

These are just some of the life hacks we're about to highlight in the slideshow below. Know of any good smartphone life hacks we should be aware of? Let us know in the comments!
