Tip of the Week: Simple Fixes for Some Common Android Phone Issues

The Android mobile platform is the most utilized operating system in the world. Even with its massive popularity, it comes with some oddities. Today, we’ll go into detail on how to prevent some of these quirks from holding you back.

Lock Your Screen in Place

One of the most annoying parts of using a touchscreen mobile device is the screen rotation. Sure, it is useful when you want to use it, but when you don’t mean to, it can discombobulate even the most seasoned user. 

Since Android 9, the OS has provided an option to lock your screen in place. If you are using a device with stock Android, simply go to System Settings, access Display and from there, Advanced. Here is where you’ll find the Auto-rotate screen option and the means to switch it off.

On Samsung devices, users find a bit of a different process as the toggle for this can actually be found in the Quick Settings menu that you can find at the top of your notifications tray. Look for the icon labeled Auto rotate, which you will want to switch to Portrait. This will disable Landscape mode completely. 

Notifications Bothering You? You have Options

Sometimes there are just too many notifications. Android has done a good job of simplifying the process to take control over all these notifications. Once you get a notification you don’t want, you can press and hold it to access the control panel. This will allow you to silence them or completely turn them off. 

Clean the Charging Port for a Faster Charge

If you are like a lot of people, your phone goes with you everywhere. Sometimes debris can get in the charging port and hinder the connection between the charger and the phone. Before you go out and drop $1,000 on a new phone, try seeing if it could be something you can take care of quickly. 

With caution, take a toothpick and try to tease any stuff lodged in the charging port. Most of the time you may get some pocket lint, but there may be other debris stopping the charge from being as effective as it can be. 

Android phones are some of the most popular phones on the market. For more great tips and tricks on how to get the most out of your mobile device, visit our blog weekly or call our technology professionals today at 978-482-2020.
