How to turn your old Android phone into a standalone music player – Phandroid


There are a lot of things you can do with an old Android phone. You can plug it into a speaker and create your own Google Home DIY or use it as a dedicated time-lapse camera. If you’re a music enthusiast and audiophile, we’ve got another idea to put that old phone to good use.

For a brief period, before smartphones really took off, everyone had a personal music player. These devices were basically hard drives with headphone jacks. You can store tons of music and have it with you all the time. Most people stream music over the internet these days, but there are advantages to having a dedicated device.

Despite all the benefits of streaming music, there is one thing that a lot of people face: data caps. Streaming music all day over data is going to cost you a pretty penny. You can download the music to listen to it offline, but then you have to worry about the storage.

A dedicated device solves both problems. You can avoid streaming by downloading music for offline listening, and since the device is only for music, you won’t have to share storage with all of your other apps. Use a phone with a microSD card and you have room for a giant music library.

Another issue with using your phone as a media player is the battery life. Playing music all day can drain your battery, leaving you without a phone at the end of the day. A dedicated device won’t drain your phone and last a lot longer because it’s not connected to data.
