Android is undoubtedly the most widely used smartphone operating system in the world. Almost every other smartphone out there is powered by Android. We use it for a lot of purposes, like watching videos and TV shows, streaming songs, multiplayer gaming, finding jobs, finding our soulmate, browsing the Internet, and much more. But, what if I tell you that you can use the same Android phone of yours to earn some cool bucks while doing almost nothing, then what would you say? Does it sound cool to you? If yes, then keep reading because today, I will tell you 7 cool ways to earn money from your Android smartphone.

1. Sell your photos:

If you are one of those Android phone users who love clicking photos and then post them to Facebook or Instagram, then it’s time that you start getting something more than the likes, comments, and shares. Use apps like Foap to post your photos and sell them. You can also sell a single photo multiple times.

2. Sell your old stuff:

I am pretty sure that many of you are already aware of this way of earning money, but if you are not, then it is one of the easiest methods. All you need to do is click photos of anything that is laying unused or old around you. It can be anything like a chair, bed, book, phone, refrigerator, car. Once you have clicked, upload it to apps like OLX and Quickr and sell them.

3. Share Short URLs:

You must have shared more than a hundred of links (URLs) with your friends and families on social networks as well as WhatsApp. Now, you can earn money while doing the same. Just use services like, paste the URL you want to share to get a short URL and share it with others. You will earn whenever someone click on that URL.

4. Recharge Your Phone:

There are a lot of apps on Play Store like Freecharge, Paytm, and Mobikwik. Use them to recharge your or anyone’s phone and earn cashback, coupons, and other monetary gains.

5. Install Free Apps:

If you have an Android smartphone, then it is quite obvious that you will install apps on it. Now, earn money (talk time) for installing those apps. You can use mCent app that shows you the list of apps that you need to install and in return, you will earn money which can be used to recharge your phone. The amount of reward varies from app to app and in some cases, you might have to do a little more than just installing them like opening the app or keep it on your phone for 7 days.

6. Watch Trailers:

Most of us love watching trailers and now it is time to earn doing the same. Use apps like AppTrailers and Watch & Earn to watch app or movie trailers and get paid.

7. Unlock Your Phone:

You read it right, earn money for simply unlocking your phone. Use SlideJoy and whenever you will unlock the phone, you will see a news or promotional ads. That’s it, nothing else. Get paid for reading the news and seeing ads.

Those were the 7 cool ways to earn money using your beloved Android phone. I have used the name of only those apps which I have personally used. So, try them out and share them with your family and friends as well.
