What is Android?
If you are new to this world of smartphones we are not going to get involved with eternal rivalries. You must know that Android is Google's mobile operating system. And what about the operating system for mobile devices most used in the world. Your current number of recently posted active users exceeds two billion. There is nothing. And today it rivals almost exclusively with Apple's operating system, which it exceeds by more than double the number of users. We can say that Spain is an Android country since more than 92% of smartphones in our country work under the green android system.
In 2017 Android It has been 10 years since its launch. Actively working since 2008 on mobile devices, tablets, and recently on wearables. Created under the financial backing of Google by the software company "Android Inc.", which would eventually end up being acquired by Google in 2005. His recognized father, Andy Rubin, along with a select team of engineers intended to create a system based on Linux. This is how the Android operating system came to light.
A system open to all
The advantages that this operating system offers over Apple's iOS system is that it is an open system. Any manufacturer can use it and adapt it to their devices. And any developer can create applications for the same thanks to a kit that Google offers as a free download. In short, to be able to use it freely for what it was conceived for. An operating system for touchscreen smart devices. In this way, any brand that makes a Smartphone, with the mandatory Google license, you can use Android as the operating system. Which Apple, for example, does not do. It is currently a trend that even manufacturers that used their own OS, such as BlackBerry for example, have ended up succumbing to a more global system.
Android is a operating system based on an application structure. The main ones, considered basic for their functionality, are incorporated as standard by the operating system itself. A system built on an architecture designed to simplify component reuse. Thus, any application can make use of the device's resources, and it can be replaced by the user. Later we will talk about the applications, their installation and we will give you some tips.
What are the customization layers in Android?
As we have explained, practically all current manufacturers use the Google system to bring their devices to life. And there are some firms that, with the intention of differentiating themselves from others, use so-called personalization layers. It would be, explained in a very graphic way, as "Dress" the Android system with other clothes. The operating system remains the same, but in appearance it is different. The image it shows is different from the one created by Google. Here the level of optimization plays a fundamental role that has been achieved with the insertion of a layer on Android.
There are firms, such as Sony, that apply more aggressive customization layers, even limiting some configuration accesses in some cases. Brands like Xiaomi, whose version of the operating system, called MIUI, gets a very good review from its users. And there is others who choose to offer a "pure" Android, much cleaner and configurable.
To taste the colors. But we are in favor of an Android without limitations and without "disguises". Since sometimes these layers cause a system that is already fluid and works well to suffer from slowdowns unnecessary.
How to create a Google account
You may not have an Android Smartphone, but it is very possible that you do have a "gmail" email account. If you already have it, this will be your identity to be able to use all Google services. If you have not created your Google account yet, you will have to do it before starting with the configuration of your device.. To do this you will not need more than two minutes.

Once identified you are ready to access to the largest app store there is, the Play Store. In the same way, you can make use on your Android device of all the services that Google offers for free.

Depending on the brand of the device, they may be accompanied by some of the firm's own such as music players, etc.

Basic configuration of your Android mobile
Have you already bought it? Congratulations. If you finally have your new Android device in your hands it's time to get it ready. In this Android manual we are going to guide you step by step to carry out the initial configuration. After removing your new phone from its box, we will have to add our SIM card first. And without fear, press the power button to begin with the configuration.
How to set your language on Android
It is the first thing we must do when we turn on our new Android device. After the diplomatic welcome message with which he greets us we must choose the language with which we will interact from that moment with our smartphone. In an extensive list of languages we will select the appropriate one, and that's it.
If at any time we want to change the language chosen in the initial configuration we can do it easily. We will not direct in the menu of our smartphone to «Settings». And from here, normally entering inside "Advanced settings" we have to look for the option "personal". From this location, by clicking on "Language and text input" We can access the list of languages and change it to the one we want.
How to set your Android device as a "new device"
The latest available versions of Android offer new configuration options for when we launch a smartphone. Thus, in the event that the new phone purchased serves to renew a previous one, we will have it easier. From this point, we can configure the new phone with the same options as the old one. Even with the same applications that we have installed, the Wi-Fi keys, etc.
But this is not our case now. And to continue with the basic configuration we must select the option "Set up as new device". In this way the following steps and settings will be entered for the first time. So let's move on to the next step.
Select a wifi network for our Android smartphone
Although the step of selecting a Wi-Fi network not required completely to complete setup of the new device. If it is highly recommended to carry out these operations with an internet connection. This way the device configuration will be complete. In the list of available Wi-Fi networks, we must select ours. To continue, after entering the access code, we must select «continue».
It is common to use more than one Wi-Fi network throughout the day. For this reason, and so that you can add all the networks you need, we explain how to do it at any other time. We access the icon again «Settings» of our device and select the option «Wifi". Having activated the Wi-Fi connection, we can see the available networks in a list. Simply we must select the desired network and enter the access code. Our device will automatically connect to saved networks when we are within its coverage.
How to log in with our Google account.
We assume that we already had a Google account or that we have created it following the previous instructions. Accessing it and being able to enjoy all the services offered by our account is very simple. We will simply have to identify us with our account "firstname.lastname@example.org" and enter our password. Once this is done, we must accept the conditions of service in order to continue with the next step.
It is also possible to continue with the configuration without having a "gmail" account. But again we recommend that you do it with her. In this way we can fully enjoy the package of services that Google offers us. And so the configuration will be more complete in all respects.
How to add another email account
Once the previous step is finished, the configuration menu will ask us if we want to add another email account. Here we can add the rest of the email accounts that we use assiduously. Whether owned by Google or any other operator. The Gmail application will take care of organizing them in folders. You can see all the mail at the same time or individually select the inboxes, sent, etc.
As with Wi-Fi networks, once the device configuration process is finished, we can also add as many email accounts as we need. For this we will go to the repeated icon of «Settings» where should we look for the option "Accounts". From here we will select "add Account" and we will enter the account name, password, etc. And immediately it will appear in the inbox with the rest.
Configure the security and unlocking system on Android
In this aspect, the security options that our device can offer us play an important role. That is, it depends on the related benefits you have. Currently almost all new devices come equipped with fingerprint reader. And although there are phones that still do not incorporate this technology, there are also those that have iris reader o facial recognition.
If our device does not have any of the news in security systems we should not worry. It can still be safe from third parties if we make good use of the tools that Google offers us. We can always have an unlock pattern or do it through a numerical code. In this step we can select just one or combine them with each other. In one way or another we always advise using one.
This is the last step in the basic configuration of our device, but not the least important for that. Once we have selected the security system, our smartphone is almost ready. These settings are usually the same on practically all Android devices. But the order could change depending on the customization layers and the version of the operating system that we have.
Based on our location, we will select the appropriate time zone. From there we can be sure that the time shown by the device is correct.
Now we can enjoy our new device at full capacity. But first, we can give you a little touch of personalization. Undoubtedly one of the hallmarks of this operating system, the possibility of giving it the appearance that we like the most. From the basic configuration of the device we can select the theme, the ringtones or message that we like the most. Just like him wallpaper lock or screen usage. Or even the colors of the notification LEDs linked to each notice.
How to know if my Android operating system is up to date
Counting on the multiple pre-installed applications that Google offers us, the Smartphone is already fully operational for almost any task. But Before proceeding with the installation of external applications, it is interesting to check that our software is up to date. To do this, within the device menu we will go to "Settings". We will look for the option "About my device" and we will click on it. Once this option is open we must select "Search for updates" (or a very similar option). The phone itself will check if it has any updates pending to install.
If there is a pending update, we simply have to click on "Download and install" and immediately the download will begin, which will be installed automatically. This process could take a few minutes and our phone will be up to date. Note that you will not be able to download an update with less than fifty percent battery.
As a practical tip, it is convenient to perform this operation with a wifi connection. Since the download of an update of the operating system can increase our data consumption in excess.
An updated operating system is always more secure and efficient. Optimizing the device with its own functionalities and with applications is always better with the latest version available. Being up-to-date will prevent you from encountering application compatibility problems, and even battery consumption could improve.
How to download apps on Android
Yes now. Our Smartphone is ready to receive applications. We can now download and install as many applications as we want. And our main advice is that we do it from the official store, Google Play Store. In it we will find at our service almost a million applications for practically everything that we can think of. We just have to press the Play Store icon that comes pre-installed by default and we can access.
Sorted by categories among which we can findEg entertainment, lifestyle, photography, education, sports, and so on up to more than thirty options. We can choose to search among the most popular, or search for games, movies, music. Endless options with which we will surely find the application we wanted.
To install an application on our devices, the first thing is to access the Play Store. Once inside, when we have found the desired application, you just have to click on it. When we open it, we can see the information related to its content, see screenshots of the App itself, and even read comments and see user ratings. As well as checking that the application is free or paid.
How to install or uninstall Apps on Android
If you have convinced us, just we have to click on "install". The application will automatically begin to download and install on our device. And once the installation is finished, the application will create a new icon on the desktop. To open it and use it, we simply have to click on its icon. Do you see how easy? It couldn't be easier to download and install an application.
But What if i don't like the app i downloaded? No problem, we can also uninstall them very easily. One option would be to go to "Settings". From here we select "Applications" and we will see the list of installed applications. By clicking on the application that we want to uninstall, a menu appears in which we must select "Uninstall". Or, depending on the Android version that we use, by pressing and holding any application, a cross appears on each one of them. And by clicking on the cross, the application will also be uninstalled.
Essential apps on Android
Thanks to the multitude of options that the Play Store offers us, each smartphone is different from another. Your device says a lot about you. By looking at the applications we have installed we can know what our tastes and preferences are. Sports, games, music, photography. There are so many options that we can download that it is difficult to make a selection that will satisfy everyone.
But even so, we could agree the vast majority with a series of “fundamental” applications”. And we are going to advise you the ones that are recommended for us. Among them we have selected the most popular of each sector. Having them installed you will be able to get the most out of your new Android phone.
The own applications of social networks are the "abc" of downloaded applications for smartphones. And they are above operating systems, brands and models. So we cannot ignore the applications that treasure the most hours of use. Smartphones are practically inconceivable without these applications. They live for each other and vice versa.

Another of the essential social networks to be in communication with the world. Originally conceived as a microblogging service. And converted thanks to its use, and of course to its users into a real communication tool.

Es the world's most downloaded and used messaging app. Who does not use WhatsApp today? There are even some firms that incorporate this application, among which we find pre-installed. A fundamental App to be in the world
Considered as "the other" by many. But chosen better than WhatsApp in countless comparisons. Its essence is the same as that of its rival. But with a continuous work on updates and with the implementation of different functionalities manages to be more versatile than WhatsApp.
Useful applications for your smartphone
The aforementioned apps are the ones that you will see on almost all the smartphones that are operating today. But in the vastness of the Google Play Store there is room for much more. And there is applications that can serve you just for what you need. Apps that undoubtedly they will give your smartphone one more point of usefulness and functionality.
Therefore, below we are going to recommend some of the applications that we like the most and that of course we use daily. For many, smartphones are another form of communication and entertainment. But for many others it is also a useful work tool that can help us a lot.
A place to keep it allThis is how an application defines itself that can help you a lot to be more organized. Conceived as a notebook but that serves much more. You can save photos, files, audios, or text notes. It serves as reminders for appointments or tasks to be done. One of the most complete applications for the office or for your things that has evolved the most.
The novelty and usefulness of this application is that you can use it on any of your devices. And you will always have them synchronized simultaneously. So you don't have to worry about looking for a note on your phone or tablet. What you write down in Evernote will be on all the devices you use. One of the most useful App you will find.
Another great tool for organizing work. Ideal to perform group work tasks. Create a board and share it with whoever you need to collaborate with. You can create lists in columns very visual. Y fill them with cards, for example, from to-dos. These cards can be dragged from column to column easily, for example from to-dos to completed tasks.
If you share an office or tasks with a team, we can't think of a more practical and useful way to organize yourself. Share your board with your colleagues. A) Yes everyone will have access to updated information on pending and completed work. A highly recommended application.
One of the applications that always wins a place among our favorites. With the motto of "Save for later", helps us not to miss anything that could be interesting to us. Put it in your "pocket" and read it when you have time. You can save articles and news unlimitedly. And you can even order them as it suits you best. Undoubtedly a tool designed for those of us who do not stop. And that is very useful to not miss any important article for us. what really interests us.
Pocket is as useful as it is easy to use. Saving a publication in your "pocket" is quick and easy. After installation Pocket includes an extension with its icon. Using the share option we can save to pocket automatically. And we only have to access the application to search for everything that we have wanted to save for later.

Humor, entertainment, culture or music programs. Everything fits in iVoox. A huge and very well organized platform where you can listen to your favorite radio program whenever you want.

This way you will know when there is new content related to your tastes and your followed programs. Not everything is going to be for work, right? A perfect ally for your leisure time.
We could be advising you on applications without stopping for a long time. These are some of the ones that we use the most and that we consider the most useful. But as each user is a world. The best advice is to dive right into the Play Store and find your particular "treasures." If you need an application for something safe it is in the Google application store.
It is normal to read and hear that Android is not a safe operating system. Or at least it is not one hundred percent. And in part it is true. Something that, on the other hand, being the most used system worldwide, it is normal that it is the most attacked by malware. To keep our device safe there are at our disposal a series of applications and antivirus with which to control the "cleaning" of our mobile.
Keep in mind that the security of our devices depends a lot on the risk to which we expose them. Access to websites with a dubious reputation. Open suspicious emails. Or even downloading some low-quality, ad-ridden apps. As we can see, there are several possible forms of infection. Fortunately, Android is continually working to improve security. And it is doing a severe check on potentially dangerous apps by banning them from the Play Store.
As an active user of Android since its inception, I have to say that I have never encountered a serious problem due to virus infection on my smartphone. And it is a fact, as it happens in a computer, that the constant analysis of files on a device that makes a program or application, ends up slowing down its operation. Therefore, to avoid problems with viruses without losing a bit of performance, we must take certain precautions with the content we consume and where it comes from.
But if what you want is to sleep peacefully knowing that wherever you access your passwords and data will be safe, it is better that you install an antivirus application. A great option could be 360 Security, Considered the Most Trusted Mobile Security Software of the world. Not in vain it has a note of 4,6 out of five in the Play Store. In addition to having more than two hundred million downloads.
How to backup my data on Android
As a general rule, our smartphones contain valuable information for us. Sometimes in the form of messages, or photos and videos. Or even work documents that we should not lose. So that all our data is safe accident, or third-party access, it is best to make use of the tools that Google makes available to us.
Thanks to Google Contacts, Google Photos or Google Drive, we can have our contacts, photos, files or documents safely and anywhere. But if what we want is to create a backup within the device itself, we will tell you how to do it. To make our backup copy we must open the option «Settings». We go to the advanced settings and look for "Personal". One of the settings is "Backup".
Within this option we have several options available. We can copy our data on the device itself or do it through our Google account. For this we must be identified on the smartphone with our own account. From here we can also restore the network settings, in the case of a change of operator, for example. And we can also restore factory data, in case we want to completely erase our devices.
All the previous steps that we have explained will be very useful if you are new to an Android device. And they will also be if you are before your beginnings in this of mobile technologies. We have tried to make a complete guide so that you do not get lost at any time. But It may be the case that you are not new to the Smartphone world. And yes you are on Android.
So to make this guide more versatile, we will include one more step. This is how we will make this welcome work for all those who want to join the world's leading mobile operating system. New users and those who come from other operating systems. And that the transition from one operating system to another does not pose any obstacle.
How to transfer my data to Android from an iPhone
From Google they have always taken into account the possible migration to Android of users from an iPhone. And for years it has been developing applications that facilitate the task of migrating data from one platform to another. Although sometimes the process may seem tedious and complicated. Google offers some tools that will significantly simplify this transfer from Android to iOS data
Google Drive for iOS
One of the most useful applications that Google offers for free through the signature application platform of the apple. With this app we can export all the content that we consider necessary from the old iPhone to have it on our new Android. And we can do it by following a few really simple steps.
Installed on an iPhone, in addition to being able to use it as the tool that it is, for storing and processing files and documents. It can also be us very useful for transferring our data from iOS to Android. Therefore, the first thing we must do is download this application. Y once installed on the iPhone, identify ourselves in it with our Google account. Through this account the data will be copied.
With Google Drive for iOS installed on the iPhone we must do the following. From the settings menu we must select "Make backup". We have to choose to have the data copied in our Google Drive account in which we have previously identified. Once this is done, we will select the different files that we want to copy such as contacts, photos, calendar events, even WhatsApp conversations. Easy, right?
When we open the same application on our Android device, pre-installed at the factory, we can have access to all copied data. From WhatsApp, when we install it, we must select the restoration from the copy in Google Drive to have the saved chats. We will do the same to recover the contacts, calendars, etc.
Google Photos for iOS
As a limitation to Google Drive, we may find that the storage that it offers us is insufficient. As a general rule, the highest percentage of memory occupation of a Smartphone corresponds to photos. And it's these that make the storage look cluttered.
In the same way that we have on the Apple App Store from Google Drive, recently too we can download Google Photos. With a not inconsiderable 15 GB available for free we can greatly alleviate the occupation of the storage of our devices. And in the same way, have at our disposal all the photos and videos instantly on our new Android Smartphone.
Although always we recommend native Google apps first for its solvency and proven functionality. We can also recommend some relevant App that we can find for free in the Google Play Store. If you have not clarified yet with these steps to follow, there is an application that is simple and infallible.
Move Contacts Transfer / Backup

So that the beginning with your Android do not start on the wrong foot We have selected an application that after using it you will not hesitate to recommend. In less than a minute you will see how your contacts go from one device to another without having to complicate things.
Whether you come from iOS or if you renew a device and want to recover your contact book this is the ideal application. A recently updated version and a 4,8 rating on the Play Store precede it. Y the experience of having used it several times confirms its excellent performance.
We will have to download the App on the iPhone and also on the new device. We access through its icon on both phones at the same time. Taking into account that we must have Bluetooth activated. In our new phone we will select the option «import contacts from another device». The app itself will track nearby Bluetooth devices. When we see the name of the old device on the screen, we just have to select it by clicking on the icon that appears with its name.
We will select, in this case, the iPhone from which we want to import the contacts. It is necessary grant the app permissions necessary so that you can access the data in the calendar. Once we do this, the phonebook will start to copy from the old device to the new one. It only remains to grant permissions on the new device to locate the imported data in the contact list. Y right away we can enjoy all our contacts on the new phone. That easy.
Now, we can no longer use as an excuse that we do not change the operating system due to the difficulty of transferring our data from one platform to another. Thanks to these applications we will be able to have all our files, photos and contacts through very simple steps.

Of the most complete Manuals to date! Highly recommended!
Very good article. It is often taken for granted that all people are clear on certain basic concepts
Great post !! They should include it in the pack when you buy a new phone to have everything under control.
Excellent contribution. Thanks a lot
It is the most complete, clear, concise and practical pseudo-manual that I have seen to date.
It contrasts with the shameful absence of a manual (replaced by a simple little brochure) in most of the latest generation mobiles. It should be prohibited and punished.
By the way, as an example of LACK of manuals in ANDROID terminals:
How to UNHIDDEN my number when I call with my XIAMI MI A2 and A1 with Android 8.1?
I am desperate because I CANNOT find it in configuration or in the NON-EXISTING manual and it is NOT the fault of the operator, whom I already called.
Thanks in advance for helping me
