How to Organize Your Phone
Have you always thought you have an unorganized/messy phone? Well, here a few tips on how to organize it!
Part 1Cleaning Up Your Phone
1You can determine whether you actually use an app by asking yourself a few questions. Have I used this app in the past 2 weeks? Is this app for school/work? Am I ever going to use this app in the future?
2You’ll think But what if I need it later? Think deeper, and ask yourself the same questions as when you deleted the apps. Try Files by Google. It is a surprisingly handy app that, helps you get rid of un-needed files & apps.
3There will be some emails that are important, keep a seperate folder for each category. Delete rest and clean your trash bin periodically. Sync your mail as you cleanup your trash bin.
4Sync all your contacts. Delete contacts you don’t need. Merge duplicate contacts. Update everyone’s information.
5Delete the ones that you haven’t used in a while. You can keep important chats with information.
Part 2Organizing Your Apps
1Move your most used apps to your dominant side. It will be easy for one handed operation.
2You can categorize folders based on verbs (e.g. productivity, creativity, work, home,etc.), color codes, frequency of app usage, etc.
Part 3Personalizing Your Phone
1Use a theme with out-of-the-box experience, freshens up your wallpaper every morning, gives quick access to frequently used apps and contacts.
2If theme is not your cup of tea go for a new icon set. Icon packs serve a dual purpose, they prettify your standard app icons and give your home screen a unified look.
3Experiment a little. Use one with delightful absurdities, like being able to search for the right emoji by drawing it on your screen, search for and send reaction GIFs.
4Some Android apps let you build your own custom widgets. Want the time, weather and battery life but not messages? Sure! Want battery life and calendar but nothing else? 100%! Build your own from scratch, or use a separately downloaded skin without much hassle.
5Your lock screen often greets you first. What's on yours right now? Notifications, stock wallpaper, time and date? You can do better! Decide for yourself how to spice your lock screen. Hide what's in your texts from your lock screen. Choose themes, as well some useful shortcuts.
