Your Android Phone

There's a major difference between Android smartphones and Apple's iPhones. Android phones, powered by Google, allow for a remarkable amount of customization. Android phones are open source. This means that it is possible to customize everything 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 task. Simply follow the tips below to create a smartphone that's as distinctive as you are.

One-Touch Dialing

We all have people that we call regularly. With Android phones, you can set up one-touch dialing for those people. Simply press your finger on an open space on your screen until a menu opens. Then select the “Shortcuts” option. Chose Direct Dial and select the person you wish to set from your contacts. Now you can call that individual by pressing one button.

Saving Time Searching the Web

You can customize your Android phone so you spend less time looking for your favorite Websites, too, by moving your top Web pages right 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 so you can easily access them. Achieving this is simple! 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.
