Droid Bionic Tricks to Remember

Part of the Droid Bionic For Dummies Cheat Sheet

Using a Droid Bionic smartphone means easy web access, fun with apps, and more. Boost your Droid Bionic productivity with these handy time-saving tricks (which might even strengthen your hopeless addiction to your new smartphone).

  • If you don't plan on using the phone for a while – and you seriously need some peace – put the Droid Bionic to sleep: Press and hold the Power Lock button and choose the Sleep command. Press and hold the Power Lock button again to wake up the phone.

  • Dictation! You can speak into the phone as an effective and quick alternative to using the onscreen keyboard.

  • Use the Swype keyboard for rapid text entry.

  • Press and hold a key on the onscreen keyboard to confirm that your stubby fingers have selected the right character.

  • Spread your fingers to zoom into a web page, where it's much easier to click on links.

  • Quickly put the Droid Bionic into vibration mode by pressing the Down Volume button until the phone jiggles.

  • When you're on the phone, press the power button to lock the phone and turn off the touchscreen.

  • When downloading updates, new apps, or for faster Web browsing, activate the Droid Bionic's WiFi.

  • Use the Search soft button to look for things on the phone, on the Internet, or in a specific app.
