This happens mostly when you want to use the phone while charging. Or may be your phone's headphone jack is on the top and you want it to shift to the bottom for sometime. This app proves handy in such situations.

WaveUp usage and review

Image
Our android phones come with various sensors that are used for some purposes by the phone. But there are third party apps available which allow you to use the sensors on your phone for some cool purposes. The one about which I am going to tell you, uses the proximity sensor. The proximity sensor is located on your phone at the front near the earpiece or the front facing camera. On some newer phones, it is located in that silly looking notch. Proximity sensor is used by the phone to turn the screen off while a phone call when you bring the phone near your ear. It avoids accidental touches on the screen when you are listening to a call.

The app I am going to tell you about is called WaveUp.
This app uses the proximity sensor to turn on and off your screen. It will actually lessen the use of power button on your phone. It is handy if your power button gets damaged or of you just want to incr…

Let's start with the fold-able phones. If you are on the internet _ youtube or facebook, you must have seen videos for flexible phones. Right? Samsung working on flexible phones. They even showcased a flexible phone. You could imagine a tablet that was a thin flexible display that could roll into a cylinder. You could imagine a phone that could unfold into a large tablet. Why did'nt foldable phones become a reality? Firstly, the concept was quite possible. Samsung's OLED display is flexible. It is being successfully used in Samsung and non-Samsung phones (such as the iPhoneX).
Why did'nt flexible phones become a reality? Why?
The answer lies in the question that what do companies want? Profit? Money? You are right. The companies want money.
