Sometimes all that doing stuff can get a little exhausting, so why not lean back, stick on an award-winning TV series and while away the time?
Prime Video allows you to download many shows and movies which means, with a little preparation, you can have a queue of series - such as The Boys, The Grand Tour or The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel to keep you entertained with or without those signal bars.

8 Ball Hero
Simple games that work well without needing to be connected are perfect when you have a patchy signal, and 8 Ball Hero provides you with a fiendish take on traditional pool.
