Yesterday, someone at PA who's totally writing an article about it at this very moment, lost their beloved LG G3 on their way home from work. After an appropriate, medically-recommended amount of cursing, they looked up ways to find lost Android smartphones with a location-based approach. Android Device Manager came up first on the list, and thanks to it, the missing G3 was found inside - you guessed it - their automobile, tucked comfortably between the driver's seat and the handbrake.
After trying to explain themselves how come the space between the seat and brake was so precisely calculated as to perfectly hide a slipped LG G3 in its embrace, they sat down to share the method with PA readers, wishing them that they never, ever have to resort to it.
