Are You An Android Newbie? Here’s How To Get Started


Everyone is new to something at some point or another. You might switch phone from the iPhone to an Android device and be out of your depth. Don’t worry! You’ll pick it up in no time at all.

Android has always offered a better option for tech people. There’s no slight to Apple there, it’s just that Android offers a deeper way to customize a device through rooting the software. You can’t really do that easily with iPhones. Android also allow you to download APK files from the web, meaning that anyone can make apps from themselves without the regulations of Apple’s Appstore.


Another benefit of Android devices is that they can offer some serious firepower for a low price. No matter the price tag, there are some seriously powerful devices out there. Oneplus market their phone as a ‘flagship’ killer and it can certainly compete with phones that are double the price.

So, you’ve got your hands on the amazing power of a new Android device. What do you do? How do you even get started?

So, when you get your hands on the power of a new mobile device bursting to the seams with Android features – what do you do? How can you get the most out of it?

First off – you need to protect your new device. Seriously. What’s the point of having all of this power if you’re only going to drop the device and destroy. There are plenty of premium phone options in the Android range, these premium options like the OnePlus, Xperia and Samsung Edge have large surface areas made up of glass and while the glass casing is strong, you do not want to chance a drop. A good case will raise above the screen protecting it from each and every fall. A good case is going to prevent some serious damage from occurring. What’s more, you should add a tempered glass screen protector, so you know your screen is going to be protected at all times.

Next up – the apps. There are apps for everything! You can pay for items with Google Pay. Uber allows you to call a cab from your location so you can get anywhere. Kindle enables you to access a marketplace of books so you can read without paperbacks.

Some more advanced options? If you want to watch movies, use ShowBox which has a huge back catalog of movies for you to peruse. The ShowBox App 2017 APK is now available for download, so you can get started catching up on your favorite TV show right away.
