Managing Your Android Phone

October 14, 2020

As has been the case since the onset of COVID-19, this meeting will be via Zoom teleconference (connection details below).

Managing Your Android Phone
Speaker: Alan German, OPCUG

What is happening “behind the curtain” of your Android smartphone? In this presentation we will review some of the basics of the Android operating system, the underlying file system, and the apps. We will see that you don’t need to be limited to just the software that came bundled with your phone. There are lots of third-party apps – many of them free – that can make your life a whole lot easier. However, there are also some annoyances with Android, and we will see how to workaround some of these. Finally, we will take take a brief look at the ultimate solution – but, one only applicable to those brave enough – replacing that outdated version of Android with a custom ROM!
