Devices are constantly being upgraded with bigger and better features. This means that your current device will be obsolete in a few years or even months’ time. So, what happens to that old device? If there’s nothing wrong with it, you can extend its lifespan by using it in the following ways.

#1: High-Tech Alarm Clock

Why not dedicate your old phone entirely to ensuring that you wake up on time every morning? You can even install an app to help track your sleeping patterns.

#2: Security Cam

As long as the camera of on old phone is working, you can turn it into a simple security camera to keep an eye on what’s happening at home.

#3: Baby Monitor

#4: Makeshift Reading Device

Why not devote one of your old phones into a reading device? Download a bunch of books and read on the go.

#5: Give it Away

No matter who you are, you’re likely to know someone in need of a second-hand phone, so why not make their day and give it to them?

#6: Create a Campaign

#7: Keep it as a Work Phone
