Most of us can probably eke out a few years with our smartphones, but the upgrade cycle means it's always tempting to splurge on a shinier model. You can usually save a few bucks by trading your old phone in when you buy a new one, but there are times you might end up with an extra, aging smartphone hanging around.
Instead of letting that phone collect dust, reuse it. If it connects to Wi-Fi, it can still be a handy addition to the household. Here are a few cool things you can do with your old smartphone.
1. Turn it into a dash cam
If you’ve got an old phone with a working camera, then you’re good to go. If you’re breathing new life into an old Android handset, then AutoBoy Dash Cam is good one. It automatically deletes older recordings that you don’t need, and has a crash sensor to ensure important footage is never lost.
Bear in mind that you’ll also need to buy a smartphone mount that attaches to your windshield, and have some way to charge the phone in your car to prevent the battery from reaching out on long journeys. If you don’t have a USB port in your ride then you need to buy car charger from stores.
2. Keep an eye on your babies
Cloud Baby Monitor (available on iOS and Android) is a comprehensive app which beams your little tyke’s snoring face to any other device you fancy.
3. Protect your home

An app like Alfred Home Security Camera - available on iOS and Android - harnesses the camera and microphone powers of your handset, providing views of your home, complete with automatic alerts if any intrusions are detected.
You can add friends and family to your circle of trust too, though you’ll want to remember that fact next time you’re walking around sans towel.
4. Explore the deep
5. Get a desktop butler
From Siri and Alexa, to Google Assistant and even Cortana, you’ll have weather, news, radio shows, calendar entries, music and more, all just a voice command away.
Older phones are likely to have the much-missed headphone jack which will make things easier, but if you’ve got Bluetooth speakers then you’re all good to go.
6. Wireless Webcam
7. Use it as a dedicated ebook-reader & music player
