The Step by Step guide on how to set up your new Android phone
Before you turn your new Android phone on, check if you have the right size of SIM card for your device.
Not all the manufacturers place the socket for the SIM card on the same side of the phone, so make sure you check that before placing it in.
Once you’ve done that, you can easily insert it, and press the power button.
As it is a new phone, it will probably take a few minutes to initiate.
Now, here are some easy steps to get your phone up and running in just a few minutes.
- Set up the language of your device.
- Connect to a Wi-Fi network (although this is optional, and you can do it later).
- You can import your data from a previous phone, or set up a new Google account to access apps like Google Play, or Google Maps.
- Set up your security preferences. You can choose to lock your phone with a pattern, pin code, or password. The latest versions of Android also include facial recognition to secure your device.
- Manage other preferences, like Google Assistant settings, or the accounts related to the phone’s manufacturer.
How can I make my phone more personal?
So, you’re done with the basics of Android set up, but it doesn’t have to end there.
- After that, you might want to add some apps. Accessing to Google Play you can download and install the apps you need according to your region.
- You can change all the initial settings later on. That includes the language or security settings.
- You can create new accounts, or include other accounts from different providers, like Outlook, or Yahoo.
Expend some time redesigning the appearance of your phone, by changing the home screen and the lock screen pictures, or even choosing other themes and fonts.
