A new phone is a great experience. Something is exciting and captivating about getting to know your new phone. There is a problem, though, and the problem is new phones are hard to understand. Smartphones are so complex these days that it can take weeks to get used to your new iPhone or Samsung. Obviously, this takes away from the usability and leaves you frustrated and angry. Even worse, it takes away all the enjoyment. Thankfully, there are lots of ways you can engage with your phone to make it fun again. Here are just a few options you can try.
Read The Manual
Have you ever read an instruction manual in your life? You probably have not because they aren’t cool, plus you know what you’re doing. Well, you used to know what you were doing when phones were just bricks that made calls and sent messages. Nowadays they are more complicated, and you need to learn what makes them tick. All you have to do is take a look at the instruction manual for advice. It has everything you need to get to grips with the software, hardware and user face to name but three things. And if there is anything else you don’t understand, it will have that information too.
The manual is an excellent source of information, but you can learn a lot about your phone on your own. All you have to do is investigate and see what the phone has to offer. By using apps and checking out the settings, you will start to understand the basics. And the basics are the foundations you need to understand the phone fully. Sometimes, clicking and pressing buttons is the best way to learn.
Learn The Shortcuts
Phones have lots of shortcuts, and most of them add to the experience. They certainly make the phone easier to use, which is why you should learn as many as possible. Apple phones and Android phones have different shortcuts so the shortcuts depend on the phone. Apps and software also have shortcuts you can learn if you wish. Phones have everything on them today, from Adobe Captivate to Twitter to a Find My Phone. The great news is there is a Captivate shortcut guide just like there is a guide for Twitter. Regardless of the apps you have, there will always be shortcuts, and there will always be guides to help you out.
Use It Daily
There is a problem with society where people use their phones all of the time and don’t talk. Although it is annoying, it is okay to use your phone if it is new. After all, the more you use it, the quicker you will understand it. If you decide to leave it alone because you can’t get used to it, you will never get used it or it will take ages. That’s why you should take time out of your day to get to know your phone better. After a few weeks, it will seem like the phone was with you all along.
A new phone is a great experience, so don’t waste it!
