5 Tips for Setting Up Your New Android Phone

Have you just got yourself a new Android phone? If so, then there are some important tips you need to know about setting it up so you can use it to its full potential. We’ve put together the 5 most important tips we think everyone should follow when setting up their new Android phones, so keep reading if you want to get the most out of your new device.

Step 1: Update your phone

Installing updates helps protect your phone from security risks, but waiting too long can leave you vulnerable to hacks. There are two ways to keep your phone updated: manually checking for updates yourself or automatically getting them downloaded when you connect to the internet. The majority of mobile devices have automatic software updating enabled by default, but it’s important to know that this may not always be the best option.

Why? Automatic updates will push a new software version out as soon as it becomes available and could interrupt you in the middle of an important call or put other files at risk of corruption or data loss if the update takes too long to download.

Step 2: Configure your settings

The first thing you’ll want to do is configure your settings. Follow these five tips to get started:

-Lock screen: You can customize the lock screen (usually the screen that pops up when your phone is unlocked) with apps or widgets. For example, with one app you could swipe in a certain direction to trigger the alarm on your phone or sound an alarm with another. If you use Facebook a lot, adding that as a widget on your lock screen will mean you don’t have to swipe through every app on your phone just to get back into Facebook and post something. -Wallpaper: You’re able to set up custom wallpapers from either of two places: from inside an existing photo, or from an image stored elsewhere on your device.

Step 3: Download and install apps you need

Download and install the apps you need to take full advantage of your phone. There are a ton of apps out there, so take time to consider what you’ll need from your phone and then search for apps that match those needs. You can find many helpful and free apps at Google Play. Here are some apps to help you get started: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp, Pinterest, Line Messenger, Foursquare, Evernote, and Waze.

Step 4: Customize your settings

While you can tweak settings in the Settings app, there are many more ways to do it. We’ll explore five different types of customization and the best way to get there. For now, all your done is set up your phone.

*Customize your settings: **Settings**: The Settings app will be one of your most visited areas on any phone that you have because this will give you the ability to control everything from wi-fi and Bluetooth connections to managing all sorts of apps that you have on your device, like themes and display size. Customizing settings will help you get the most out of your experience with the device while making it feel like a personalized space that is just for you.

Step 5: Sign up for Google services

Android devices come with two options for signing up for Google services: 1) when you set up your device, or 2) using the Settings app.

1) When you set up your device: As part of the setup process, you can sign in to your Google account to help sync your phone with Google services like Gmail and Play Music. If you don’t have a Google account already, this is also an opportunity to create one.
