There are many things you can do with an old Android phone. You could hook it up to a speaker and make your own DIY Google Home or use it as a dedicated time lapse camera. If you’re a die-hard music lover and audiophile, we have another idea to put that old phone to good use.
For a brief period of time, before smartphones really took off, everyone had a personal music player. These devices were essentially hard drives with headphone jacks. You could store tons of music and have it with you all the time. Nowadays, most people stream music from the internet, but there are advantages to having a dedicated device.
Now that we have everything set up, we can enjoy some music. Plug in some headphones, connect to your car stereo, link up with a set of portable speakers. All of your music is at your fingertips, and you don’t have to worry about data caps, storage, or battery life. If you’re feeling really adventurous, you could add some movies and you’ve got a sweet little multimedia device.
