We all know that smartphones are many things. They can be great communication facilitators, awesome social media tools, and powerful photography accessories. The list is endless; there’s just so much you can do with a good smartphone. But then, a lot of us are entertainment buffs, and we want to extend the limits of our smartphones to gain an entertainment edge. In this article, we look at a few incredible ways in which you can use your smartphone as an entertainment center.

Make a Stand from a Hanger

This is for those ones who love to watch the latest TV shows from the comfort of their beds. You just need a wire hanger and about two rubber bands. By straightening it out, while still leaving the top hook curved, you can make some cool, perfect makeshift stand for your phone. Some smart fella uploaded a YouTube video on how to accomplish this; you can get it here.

Buy a Phone Projector                                              

If you have 100 bucks forgotten in your back pocket, you can buy a phone projector and turn your smartphone into an entertainment center. This will allow you to watch movies and videos the best way – simple, conventional!

Buy a Tripod Stand

Some of us might not have 100 bucks to invest in a phone projector. If you fall in this category, and you don’t mind getting your entertainment from a small screen, you might as well buy a smartphone tripod. This one will just cost you about 20 bucks from the most popular ECommerce platforms. Since the tripod’s legs can be bent, it can lie on any surface you choose, including that rugged spot on your backyard.

Hook your Smartphone to Speakers

This is another great way to use your smartphone as an entertainment center. To get movie-quality sound going up, put your phone into a dock with speakers. You might also want to have the phone latch sideways. Alternatively, you can get some cool, loud Blue-tooth wireless speakers on eBay or Amazon and watch videos with sub-woofer quality sound!
