Get StartedHow do you get started with your new Android smartphone? First things first. Setup a Google account, which should be fairly easy if you already use Gmail or any of the Google services such as Drive, Calendar, YouTube, Apps, etc. If you're completely new to Google, just setup a new Google account. A Google account allows you to backup information, synchs contacts and calendars, gives access to videos and apps, and provides instant sharing on Google+.
Get ConnectedNext, set up a Wi-Fi connection.
Go to Menu button, and choose Settings. Then select Wireless & Networks and connect to the proper Wi-Fi. Remember to use Wi-Fi wherever available.
The Android smartphones automatically run on 3G or 4G mobile networks when there is not a Wi-Fi connection.
Get OrganizedMost Android smartphones come with Google Search and Google Apps. The latest Google smartphone Nexus 4 has Google Now search that "shows you how much traffic to expect before you leave for work, or when the next train will arrive as you’re standing on the platform." Google Now can provide reminders about upcoming flights, restaurant reservations, hotel confirmations and even nearby photo opportunities. Voice Search allows you to speak your query and get a response immediately.
Google Maps provides turn-by-turn GPS navigation, live traffic info, and integrated directions for driving, walking or public transit, and also includes search for restaurants and businesses, recommendations from circles and experts, and full place reviews and summaries from Zagat editors. Want an even more engaging experience? 3D Maps and rich satellite imagery give you a more realistic sense of what’s around you while features like Street View and Indoor Maps make sure you always know what’s in front of you.
Communication is easier and quicker with Gesture Typing, and browsing is super-fast with the included Chrome browser. Finally, Gmail is always on to check your emails anytime, anywhere, or you can connect up your own email service from key providers (and even your corporate emails).
