Unless you're a geek, there's probably a lot of stuff you don't yet know about Android smartphones.

Regardless of how knowledgeable you are about Android and its peculiarities, checking out our list of Android tips and tricks would be a good idea. Let us know in case you've learned something new and don't hesitate to share some of your Android experience with us all down in the comments!

Chances are that your smartphone is almost always connected to the internet, be it over Wi-Fi or 3G/4G. Do you know what apps consume most of that data? If not, then try Android's built-in data usage monitor, available from the Settings menu, or just get an app for the job – Onavo Count or Traffic Monitor Plus. Keep an eye out for data-hogging apps.

Of all the great features that come with Android, I think perhaps my favorite is endless customization. If you don't want to root the device to go deep into modifying, there's still so much you can do with just apps. For example, you can give yourself a fancy home screen.
I've gathered a small handful of my favorite home screen apps here, but nothing that requires root access. Rather, these are the sorts of apps you can install and play around with on a lazy Sunday afternoon. Come next weekend, you just might have a completely different-looking Android experience.

Widgets – you probably got a whole bunch of them pre-installed on your Android smartphone. That's great and all, but did you know that there's tons more for download from the Google Play store? Yup, there's a whole section dedicated to them.
However, not all of those widgets are really worth your time, and going through all that are available can be a tedious process. That's why we decided to save you, guys, some valuable time by shortlisting a handful of great Android widgets. Nearly all widgets picked here come free of charge. Only one widget needs you to pay extra $0.99, which indeed does nothing to you I think. Go check them out and get as many of them as you wish!

The Android world is sometimes wild, often wonderful, but always fascinating! Chances are the Android OS is a bit different than what you're used to, even if you are moving over from another smartphone platform. We want to help you get settled in and familiar with your phone or tablet as painlessly and quickly as possible, and what better way than to pass along the ten best tips from a bunch of salty old pros?
One thing to note here -- your screen may not look like the screens you see below. Android comes in many different flavors, and while they all are pretty darn good, they do often look and act different. But that's OK! Chances are the instruction that go along with the pictures will work just fine, and if you get stuck somewhere, someone has likely already figured it out for your specific model of phone, and you'll find it in the forums. Besides being generally awesome, Android users are also a pretty crafty bunch of folks.
