While iOS has its advantages, Android offers customization as its main benefit. Android has a collection of “secret codes” that unlock hidden features on devices. These codes can be entered using the phone dialer app and range from obtaining device information to toggling caller ID and call waiting. Some codes may not work on all Android phones, but they are worth trying out.

Google has released Android 14, but device updates vary by manufacturer. ASUS, Google, and Xiaomi have started rollouts, with Google’s Pixel phones among the first updated. Huawei won’t receive Android 14 due to US-China tensions. Motorola, OnePlus, and Samsung plan updates, with varying support timelines. Sony and Nothing have begun beta testing, with official updates pending. Overall, older device models may face longer wait times for the update.
