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.
As more and more services have moved to the cloud, storage on phones has become less of an issue. We took steps to clear up space on your phone, but if you have a big music library you’re going to want some extra storage. You can add an extra 32GB to your phone for less than $15 or go crazy and get 128GB. Grab one of the SD cards below and load it up with tunes.
