Admit it, no matter what flagship device we use, we all tend to worry about data drain. For prepaid users, the ultimate punishment might be getting to zero balance, but for billing based users, they will surely get a cardiac arrest when their monthly bill arrives.

We keep trying different tricks and apps to reduce our data usage on Android, some works and few don’t. This is an ever annoying issue for any smart phone users. We might need some apps to use data in background to get notifications and emails. But then, there are many apps working in background which silently eats up your data without letting you know.

There are many apps that cut-down internet connection and saves you from data consumption. There’s a drawback, you cannot chose which app to allow access to internet and to which you don’t. Here’s the perfect solution to this problem. Just check our guide below and start saving your mobile data.

Please Note: You will need to have Lollipop or advanced version to use this app.

List of Latest features of Android O – All you need to know

latest features of Android O

Latest features of Android O – What you should know?

Here we are again with a new version of upcoming Android O; no one knows what the “O” stands for, same situation as Android N in the past. Lots of new and latest improvements and features are expected to come with the upcoming version and we have compiled all here in this post, just head south.

List of Latest Android O features:

#1: Redesigned Settings Menu:

This is more a UI change rather than a core change to the Android O system. But it is always good to see some visual change, especially when we are used to see the same Settings menu from many years.

#2 Smarter File Manager:

Okay, I’ll admit, don’t take the tag line literally. As the file explorer in Android O is not exactly as smart as compared to the third party file explorers like ES File Explorer. But it is far better compared to previous versions of Android default File explorer apps.

#3 Background control over apps:

This one is the core and most desirable update that will come up with Android O. This new update will give more power to the Android OS to control background process of the app, ultimately giving you more battery juice to hang on to your device for longer time.

#4 Navigation Bar tuner:

We have already covered an article about hidden System UI tuner in Marshmallow. The same has been re-launched with extra loaded features in Android O. The user will have more power over customization with this new System UI tuner.

#5 Picture-in-Picture Mode:

This one is definitely going to get a lot of glazing eyeballs from Android freaks. A most awaited feature that does not need any details and information.

#6 Send / Receive files using Wi-Fi:

Yeah, you surely read that right. With Android O, you’ll not need to install any third-party app to transfer files using Wi-Fi, as the upcoming Android O will support the same functionality built-in.

Backup Contacts on Android – Ultimate guide to never lose any valuable contact

backup contacts on Android

Never lose any contacts ever – Backup Contacts on Android with this guide

Over the period of time, we install lot of things on our Android mobile. Out of the scrap we put in our device, the most important are our contacts. Backup Contacts on Android regularly so that if anything goes out of control, you’ll not lose anything.  Apart from just contacts, you should also develop a habit of taking backup of your favorite pictures either on your Hard drive or on any of the cloud services available.

There are many people out there, who like to root their device and try new Custom ROMs for better user experience. The pro guys already know what they are doing and have everything backed up. The problem is faced by newbie, who out of excitement just rush to try new Custom ROMs and later realize that they just formatted their entire device, with zero backup. So in order not be in similar situation, I’ll guide you how you can be sure of never losing any contact from your Android phone.

Don’t Miss this: OnePlus 5 Confirmed with Specs

Backup Contacts on Android:

  • There are many third party apps available to do backup tasks. I’ll personally advice not to go with any third-party apps for backup, as everything is readily available in native Android features. In addition, these third-party apps will consume RAM and also Storage.
  • The most effective and safest way is to sync your contacts with your Google account, the one which you used while registering your newly bought Android device. All you’ll have to do is go to Settings > Accounts & Sync > Select your Google Account > Enable “Tick” beside Contacts. Now every time you save a new contact from Dialer App, you’ll see prompt with options showing destination of various saving methods. Select your Google Account.
  • One more way is to export your contacts to SD card and then copy them to Google Drive, Laptop, or anywhere safe. The only drawback is that you’ll lose newly added contacts after taking the backup.

If I was you, I’ll bet my money on Google. It syncs new contact instantly and I’ll not have to bother to do anything manually. This not only reduces my job, but also makes sure that I can mess with my Android device whenever I wish to.

What do you do to keep a sound backup of contacts on your Android phone? Do share with us in the comments.
