I want to know if there is a method that can tell me how many hours an Android phone has been used. Just like we have cheat codes that we used for Nokia phones; they tell us the hours (regardless of factory reset). Any alternate for Android?

  • Any usage, or things like talk time? If the latter, who's your service provider? – Chance Nov 12 '11 at 4:01
  • Cheat codes? *#*#4636#*#* might give you the details you are looking for. And of course there are more cheat codes available... – Izzy Aug 11 '12 at 19:42
  • @Izzy - That code doesn't appear to work on Samsung phones. At least, it doesn't on my stock Galaxy S3 . – Compro01 Feb 19 '13 at 19:16
  • Oops? First time I hear it's not working on some device! Sorry for that! Just tested on a Galaxy Ace 2 (stock Android 2.3): Works fine there. – Izzy Feb 19 '13 at 21:18

Go to Settings → About phone → Status, scroll to bottom and you will be able to see Up time.

I think this feature is available on Android 4+.

  • For some reason on my Android 9 Mi A1 I can no longer find the option. Which is curious (I had it before, though not sure if on Pie). – Paul Stelian Mar 8 '19 at 21:15

Try typing this code in your dialer: ##786# or *#*#786#*#*

If that doesn't work, install "Launcher Pro". That app can show you hidden menus of your phone, which are the same menus that those two dialer codes should bring up.

  • This might be hard reset according to the blog here. And Uptime always resets once you restart the phone. [Edited by Moderator Firelord] – nmeegama Nov 3 '15 at 5:58
  • For which Android version(s) does the code works? Doesn't work on my CM12. – Firelord Nov 3 '15 at 12:00
  • Seems to be model/brand specific... – Paul Stelian Mar 8 '19 at 21:18

QualityTime is a good app that can track how long you use your device daily and weekly. It can also track how long you use individual apps.
