The thing I like about LG and its latest smartphones is that isn’t afraid to experiment, to take chances with new technology, so it’s obviously that we get the best. LG G5 is another example for that. Today I want to talk to you about the fact that the G5 comes with a feature called Smart Settings which lets the phone to automatically adjust settings based on your location or connected devices.
For example, your favorite music app can open when your plug in headphones or WiFi can be disabled when you leave your house. There are no less than four different things that can trigger the Smart Settings: arriving at home, leaving home, plugging in earphones, and connecting a Bluetooth device. Then, each of these has several options available.
Here I am to guide you, but to avoid any issues, turn on My Place in Settings > Location from the start. Then, you are good to go:
