Android Smartphones Made Easy: The Beginners Guide Made For Beginners (Computers Made Easy)

Within the last decade, smartphones have gone from something only technically savvy people enjoyed to a daily device that can be used by anyone from children to grandparents. These days you are in the minority if you don't have a smartphone and are missing out on all the wonderful things you can do with them. As these smartphones keep getting more advanced, some people may find it hard to keep up with everything they can do and how to do even the simplest of tasks. Not everyone is a tech genius and since our smartphones generally don't come with instruction guides we are left to figure it out on our own.

The goal of this book is to get you up and running on your smartphone without confusing you in the process or making you feel like a dummy. Whether you are just getting started using a smartphone or have had one for some time and would like to become more proficient in its operation this book will help you do so. Its written so people with no experience can easily grasp the concepts and people with experience can gain some new skills and sharpen the ones they already have. Most importantly its filled with pictures to help explain these concepts so you aren't left guessing how the words you are reading actually relate to using your phone.

The chapters in the book cover the following topics:

Chapter 1 – What is a Smartphone
Chapter 2 – Setting Up Your New Phone
Chapter 3 – The Home Screen
Chapter 4 – Notifications
