When it comes to the information contained by an Android handset, there are two categories. The type of information that is made available to users, and the king of information that isn’t accessible to everyone, at least not at first.

What If you were told that there are certain Android codes that once used, will give you the ability to see hidden information about your smartphone that could potentially be useful to you in the future? Well, there are, so let’s take a look at these codes and maybe you’ll find something you can make use of.



We’re going to take a look at the system codes for the Android operating system. These codes will give you access to additional information about your device and help you get a better understanding of how Android works on your device.

Inputting the codes themselves is easy. You just need to dial a specific code to access the Android function, so just pull up your dialer and get to typing. It is advised that you do not dabble with matters beyond your comprehension, so if you do not feel entirely comfortable using these codes, you might be better off not doing it.

There are also codes for testing different phone functions, which can come in handy in different situations.
