This is how you should be recording phone calls

How does it feel to know that your call is being recorded? Most people hate to have their calls recorded. However, there are some instances where by call recording is necessary. A verbal agreement for example, might one day be needed to be proven in court. If you have ever taken instructions from the boss over the phone you know that the fear of failing to completely follow all the instructions can actually make you forget some of the instructions. A recorded call can come in handy in such scenarios. So how should you record calls automatically?
The above video will help you set up call recording in a few seconds. In case you can not play the video then here are the steps you should take: 1. Go to the phone app  2. Click the menu button, usually three vertical dots on.
3. Select settings.
4. Choose call recording.
5. Turn it on.

It functions basically like most feature phones on the market except that it does not have a camera. One thing that I enjoyed using was the pedometer. It counts the number of steps taken per day and even converts it to distance in kilometers. When the smart watch is pair to a phone with a FunRun app installed, it downloads all the data to the phone. This is a great feature for those who run or do brisk walking to keep fit. I found making or answering a phone call awkward but it comes in handy when your phone's battery dies…
