How to Turn an Old Android Device Into a Cool, Useful Gadget | Mobile Tech

By Jack M. Germain

Apr 2, 2020 12:37 PM PT

What do you do with your old Android phones or tablets? That question usually prompts three tired answers. You might trade them in for a new purchase. Or you could resell them on eBay. Probably, though, you will just stuff them in a drawer as emergency backups.

Better options exist, however, that would let you continue to get value from your aging devices. For example, you could download Google maps to create a dedicated in-car GPS navigator, or you could turn them into webcams.

Numerous variations on the webcam theme address almost any modern day surveillance, video or audio application. For instance, you easily could turn your unused Android phone into a weathercam, baby monitor, petcam or nannycam. Streaming images over your home network is a fun project to set up and takes little in the way of extra cost

Should You Lease or Buy Your Tech Equipment?

Find out which option is right for your business with this in-depth look into the pros and cons of each.

Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.


The next time your business needs new computers, networking equipment or other technology, should you buy it or lease it? If you don’t know, read on. This month we’ll take a look at the benefits–and downsides–of both leasing and buying technology equipment, plus the questions you should ask to ensure you get the best deal.

Leasing: The Benefits

  • Leasing keeps your equipment up-to-date. Computers and other tech equipment eventually become obsolete. With a lease, you pass the financial burden of obsolescence to the equipment leasing company. For example, let’s say you have a two-year lease on a copy machine. After that lease expires, you’re free to lease whatever equipment is newer, faster and cheaper. (This is also a reason some people prefer
