Surprisingly, a simple battery proves to be an excellent and inexpensive substitute for a stylus! You don’t need to take your regular gloves off to answer a call or write a text anymore in the winter – just use aluminum foil.
As strange as it might sound, a balloon makes a perfect case for your phone. Believe it or not, tripods can easily be made out of simple office supplies too! Just take a roll of wide Scotch tape, place the phone in it, and secure it with rubber bands.
A good way to control some camera functions on your phone remotely is by using the button on your earphones. It really works.

-Surprisingly, a simple battery proves to be an excellent and inexpensive substitute for a stylus. You need to touch the screen with the negative side of the battery.
-You can make a phone stand out of something as simple as a paperclip! In our experience, the smartphone fits on the unfolded paperclip perfectly.
-Aluminum foil works just as good as those fancy touchscreen gloves for smartphones in the winter.
-Unfortunately, using a syringe doesn’t help make your smartphone cleaner.
-First, blow the balloon up (but not too much, to just about half the max volume), and then squeeze the phone into it: the balloon will cling to your smartphone like a glove.
-Rubbing toothpaste on the screen didn’t help us get rid of scratches at all. If anything, it actually made them even more noticeable.
-Take a roll of wide Scotch tape, place the phone in it, and secure it with rubber bands. When it’s done, stick the structure to the place you want to take a picture from.
-Just put a bottle of water on your phone’s flashlight and you’ll get a nightlight.
-The condom doesn’t let water through for sure, but the screen sensor stops working.
-The earphones button works like a trigger for your phone and gives it a “take a new photo” command.
-Internet sources suggest carefully placing a drop of water on the phone’s camera, waiting a minute, and then looking at some small text through the camera. Unfortunately, it would be extremely inconvenient to read like this, but you could use this hack to take macro photos.
-Using rice to rescue a soaked phone worked only to some extent, but it didn’t return the smartphone to its former glory.
-The innovative lamp out of your phone and an eggshell creates pleasant lighting, and it’ll help you get around in the dark.
-There’s this an app that not many people know about called “Screen Lock”. It basically makes your phone’s current time the lock screen password.
