To celebrate National Telephone Day we compiled a list of the top 5 hidden features on your Android phone:


5. Water-resistant phones

Imagine dropping your phone in a puddle without having to worry about how many bags of rice you'll need to use to dry it out!

This feature is still rolling out but there are a number of Androids that already resist H20 and one of those is the Samsung Galaxy S8.

SURPRISE! We're giving away a Samsung S8 to one lucky NextRadio app follower. Enter for your chance to win here!


4. Google Maps

Who knew that Google Maps monitors how fast Android phones are going on the road to determine traffic patterns? How nifty is that?!


3. Blue Light Filter

On Android phones running version 7.0 or later you can turn on the blue light filter to help reduce the amount of blue light your device emits. This feature lessens the impact technology is having on our natural sleep patterns.


2. Data Limit Warning

Android allows you to set a Data Usage alert that warns you when your mobile data usage reaches the amount you set.


1. FM Chip

Not all phone manufacturers have chosen to activate the FM chip just yet. Crazy, we know. But we promise we are working hard to get everyone on board so consumers can enjoy portable radio on their phones.

Check to see if your phone is supported yet and download the app right now to ensure you're getting up-to-date information about what's happening around you. We think it's especially important during weather and other emergency situations because the NextRadio app keeps working, even when cell towers and power lines are down.
