    Disable animation in your phone’s settings. The Galaxy 5S uses some special effects animation, which looks like rippling water or exploding colors every time you unlock the screen. All of these animations look beautiful but drain your phone’s battery without contributing to its functionality. These animations only end up detracting from time that you could have utilized in surfing net, checking your email, or using apps.

    • In order to turn off all the animation, you’ll need to turn off the lock screen special effects, home screen transitions, and animation in general.

    Uninstall and remove unwanted applications and bloat ware. Many manufacturers install various applications as a part of factory settings. These apps are often loaded with number of bloatware, which could be anything ranging from shopping apps to useless services. Some of them keep running in the background, even when you’re not using them. This can eat up precious system memory and make your device run slowly.

    • It is not always possible or easy to delete these preinstalled apps completely, but you can disable them. Go to the app screen and select “Uninstall/Disable Apps” from the menu. Select the app you want to remove, and tap to disable it or uninstall it completely.

    Turn off the S voice Home key shortcut. The phone’s voice assistant, S Voice, gets activated by default if you double tap the home key on the screen. With this enabled, every time you tap the home button the system waits for a second tap, ultimately slowing down the response speed. On turning this key off, the system will directly take you to the home instantly as you tap it.

    • To disable S voice, open the S Voice app. From the main menu, select Settings, and set “Open via home key” to off.

    Clean your cache on regular basis. Every application you run on your phone stores a cache on the storage system. With time, as the stock of cache gets larger, the system slows down. Prevent this by deleting the cache on a regular basis. This will help your device become faster.

    • You can install an app cache cleaner from the Google Play store. Clean your app caches manually, or set up an automatic process to do it regularly.

    Turn off running background data for some or all applications. Various social networking and even some shopping applications use the internet constantly, looking for updates and notifications. That way they are not only consuming your internet and battery life, but also occupying the space and slowing your phone down. Turn these febaatures off to preserve battery and speed up your phone.

How to Win Online Penny Auctions

Online penny auctions are really popular these days. From sites like OohIlove, LuxeWin and JoJolie, it is easy to win designer handbags up to 99% off but how? Here are some steps which can help you win, BIG!


  1. 1

    Review the Fashion Auction sites and Choose the Right One for you

    • The sites differ in many ways, including the types of fashion items offered (LuxeWin is more Contemporary, Oohilove is more Luxury, JoJoLie is more Classic, etc.), the cost of purchasing bids, the auction rules, the number of Free Bids that you get, the number of bidders per auction, etc. Focus on the one site that has the products that you want and the right mix of factors to increase your chance of winning.
  2. 2

    Study the Bidding Patterns of Prior Winners

    • Each site allows you to view past auction wins. Note the user names of frequent winners. These “whales” often win because they are willing to throw a large number of bids at a particular auction item, so you don’t want to get into a bidding war with them if you can avoid it. Conversely, you will see that some winners are able to win using very few bids and at very advantageous prices. Was it time of day, type of item, time overlap with another auction that ran long? Look for patterns that will give you the advantage.
  3. 3

    Use your Free Bids

    • Sites generally offer new players from 1 on (Oohilove) to as many as 5 on (LuxeWin) Free Bids for registering. Use them before considering the purchase of a Bid Pack. Clustering them in one auction is usually more successful than spreading them out across multiple auctions.
  4. 4

    Don’t Bid Until the Last 10 Seconds or so

    • Do not waste your bids early on in the game. Wait till the auction clock reaches the last few seconds to start bidding. Keep in mind that waiting too long can cause your bid to not make it to the site’s server on time due to your internet connection and other factors, so generally 5 seconds or so is as late as you may want to be.
  5. 5

    Start with Beginners Only Auctions

    • Most sites have them and reserve them for those bidders that have not yet won an auction. The auction item is usually of lesser value, or a Bid Pack, but there are fewer bidders and no “whales” to compete against. Here’s where you can test strategic approaches against other newer bidders.
  6. 6

    Select which Auctions to Bid on Carefully

    • If you’ve studied the pattern of prior auctions, you should see that there are certain days of the week, times of the day and types of items that are less competitive. There will be a lot more bidders for the Jimmy Choo Bag than for the Rachel Leigh Earrings. Don’t bid on items that you really don’t want but don’t throw away your bids hoping beyond hope that you will win a $1,500 item with just a few bids either. Work the system to your advantage.
  7. 7

    Be In It to Win It

    • Don’t participate with a few bids in many auctions but rather concentrate your bids on the very few that really matter. You have got to be willing to put a sizable number of bids behind your involvement in an auction to ensure that you outlast other bidders. Buy plenty of Bids in advance to make sure that you don’t run out mid-auction.
  8. 8

    Consider Using the Bid Concierge To Bid For You

    • Enlist the help of a bid assistant to help you win the auction. You can input the price at which you’d like the Concierge to start bidding for you, the price at which you’d like the Concierge to stop bidding for you and the number of bids you would like for it to place. Many of the “whales” have learned to use the Bid Concierge effectively. On many high value items, the highest bidder frequently engaged the Bid Concierge to secure the win.
  9. 9

    Keep the Faith and Have Fun

    • Don’t expect to win right away or to win without purchasing bids. The Free Bids give you a chance to get a taste of the action and a feel for how it all works without risk. Winners buy plenty of bids and are willing to commit when they select an auction they want to win. They don’t win every time, and didn’t necessarily win in the beginning, but they continued and developed strategies that have paid off for them. You can be a winner too if you learn how to work the system to your advantage.
