In the playstore service on smartphones, there are lots of interesting applications on offer. Starting from social media applications, photography, to applications that support this performance.

3. Use it when you need
Lots of people use their smartphones while driving. This is very unsafe for the safety of vehicle users on the road. In addition, when hanging out with friends, there are people who are still focused on their smartphones. As a smart user, you should know when to use the tool and when to leave it for something more important.
4. Take advantage of your spare time
When waiting for the train to come and you don’t bring any reading books, you can use your phone to browse interesting information through the browser application.

Sharing can be very easy when you notice the little things around you. When you find interesting information, you can share it with your friends via social media applications on your smartphone. So, apart from being a wise user, you can also be a wise social media user.
6. Leave the smartphone before bed
One of the reasons why humans have difficulty sleeping is phone. With the phone, people tend to want to always check what’s there. In fact, the time before bed should be used to relax the body and mind, without any disturbance.
