  1. Smartphones can read the information of your credit card if you put them near. It sounds interesting, but what happens if someone tries to abuse this fact? They can intentionally put their phone near your purse and get all the information needed. Unfortunately, you cannot do this with all credit cards. The new ones that work without the need of any type of contact with the terminal can be hacked. Because of their nature, it is safer to keep them in lead-lined wallet. Better safe and sound, right?
  2. 3D spy is in the second place in the top five most impressive smartphone hacks list. If you are in a cinema and watching a 3D movie, it is possible that someone can use your phone to spy on you. There is an application that takes the picture of your home or work place, and can later abuse them. It is the perfect app for burglars, who can see the insides of your home, check your schedule, and see when you are not at home. The most terrifying thing is that we are not even aware what is happening with our phone.
  3. Turn the computer on. This is one of the most interesting of the top five most impressive smartphone hacks. If you have a hard time getting up in the morning, and if you are lazy but you want to turn your computer on without leaving the bed, this is the best hack for you. You can use the NFC antenna to turn your computer on. As of now, it is available only for Android users.
  4. Spying phone? It is possible for your phone to spy on you while you are typing on your computer. It does not seem so harmful, right. What about when you are typing your passwords, credit card information, or private messages? Are you scared now? The way that it does it is why it is on the top five most impressive smartphone hacks list. It is not up to camera or microphone, but accelerometer calculates the distance of the keys that you are pressing and figures out what you are typing.
  5. Making the specific vibrations is in the last place of our top five most impressive smartphone hacks list. iPhone users have a great opportunity to play with their phone vibration settings, and to make a specific pattern for every contact from the phonebook. Amazing, right?

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
