Get the Most Out of Your Android Phone

There’s a significant difference between Android smartphones and Apple’s iPhones. Android phones, powered by Google, allow for an impressive amount of customization. Android phones are open source. Which means you can personalize anything from your Android phone’s home screen to the way you download apps and programs. This allows for a lot of freedom and best of all, customizing your Android smartphone is not much of a challenge. Simply follow the tips below to create a smartphone that’s as distinctive as you are.

One-Touch Dialing
There are undoubtedly certain numbers that you dial more regularly than others. With Android smartphones, you can set up one-touch dialing for those people that you call the most. Simply press an open space on your screen and select the “Shortcuts” option. Then press Direct Dial and pick the right person from your list of contacts. Now you can call that person simply by pressing just one button.

Saving Time Searching the Web
You can individualize your Android phone so you spend less time hunting for your preferred Websites, too, by moving your top Web pages directly to your phone’s home screen. Do this by pressing and holding onto any site listed in your browser’s bookmarks. Soon, a list of options will pop up. Press the “Add Shortcut to Home” option, and the selected Web page will now appear on your phone’s home page.

Organizing with Folders
Folders help you stay organized in your office, so why not on your Android phone? You can create folders for projects you’re working on or important documents to help you easily access them. Doing this is easy! Simply press on a blank space on your phone’s screen and when the list of options pops up, choose “Folders.” Then name your newly created folder and drag and drop your documents into it.
