Android secret codes and hacks are fun and even useful if you need to troubleshoot some problems on your phone, but they are not as impressive at most other phones since the phones can already do pretty much everything but there are still some
codes which are not always general knowledge. Obviously these codes are not really secret and don’t do anything amazing but since people commonly refer to them as secret codes it seems fair for me to do the same.
Entering these codes on android devices should work regardless of the hardware platform.
