[Information] All about "Android"

What is Android?

Android is the name of the mobile operating system made by American company; Google. It comes installed on a variety of smartphones and tablets, offering users access to Google’s own services like Search, Youtube, Maps, Gmail and more.

This means you can easily look for information on the web, watch videos, search for directions and write emails on your phone, just as you would on your computer. This is handy for checking up on things like train times and getting directions when out and about, but there’s more to Android than these simple examples.


What can an Android phone do?


Android phones are highly customisable and as such can be altered to suit your tastes and needs. You can check your Facebook and Twitter profiles through a variety of apps making it ideal for social networking. Through the calendar you can set reminders from your desktop or your phone and on the latest versions of Android you can send links to and from your computer and vice versa.

Another neat feature of Android is that it automatically backs up your contacts for you. When you set up an Android phone you’ll need to create a Google Account or sign in with an existing one. Every time you save a number to the address book of your Android phone it will be synced to your Google Account.

The benefit of this is if you lose your phone all of your numbers will be saved. The next time you get an Android phone and sign in with your Google Account, all of your contacts and friends numbers will be displayed in your new phone’s address book and you can even access or edit them from a computer.


What apps can I get on an Android phone?

There are hundreds of thousands of apps and games available to download from the Google Play store (formerly the Android Market). There are camera apps that allow you to take pictures with artistic effects and filters on them and music players which allow you to import MP3s from your phone or create playlists. You can customise the appearance of your Android handset with a number of wallpapers based on pictures you’ve taken yourself or downloaded from the web too.

There are also various on-screen widgets to download which allow access and alteration the settings of your phone without having to dive through menus as you would on rival devices. You can pretty much create your own system of shortcuts and menus to better suit how you uniquely use your phone.

Popular games available for Android phones include Angry Birds, Draw Something and Temple Run 2 to name but three, but there are thousands of free and paid apps and games on offer.


How can I get apps on an Android phone?

The majority of apps can be downloaded from the Google Play store (the equivalent of Apple’s App Store), which includes a mix of free as well as premium apps that you’ll have to pay for. Some apps have ‘lite’ versions which are free, in the hope you’ll enjoy them and upgrade to the full premium version. Others - like Angry Birds - are free, but include adverts.

The same account that lets you backup your contacts can also have financial details added to it, allowing you the ability to purchase content from the Google Play store directly. You can pay either by debit or credit card and initial setup takes less than five minutes from a computer.

Although there are some 700,000 apps available to Android users in the Google Play store, some developers choose to make their apps available to download from their own sites. In order to download these you'll have to change some settings on your phone before visiting the site on your Android phone’s web browser. By downloading apps other than from the Google Play store, you do run the risk of attack in the form of data theft or from a virus so be careful if you choose that route.

Should you upgrade or change your Android phone; log into your Google account and you’ll be able to download your previously owned apps again, without being charged.


Android updates

Google is constantly working on new versions of the Android software. These releases are infrequent; at the moment they normally come out every six months or so, but Google is looking to slow this down to once a year.

Versions usually come with a numerical code and a codename that’s so far been named after desserts running in alphabetical order.

*Android 1.5 Cupcake
*Android 2.1 Eclair
*Android 2.2 Froyo
*Android 2.3 Gingerbread
*Android 3.2 Honeycomb
*Android 4.0 Ice ***** Sandwich:
*Android 4.1 Jelly Bean
*Android 4.2 Jelly Bean


Do Android updates cost anything?

Android updates are free. The updates bring a number of new features and changes to Android each time. Generally though, with each update the speed and overall performance of Android is improved upon.

Most of the high-end Android phones are scheduled to receive updates first. Most Android phones will have at least one update during their life cycle, with some having two. A life cycle is usually around a year, but depending on the phone can be longer.


How do I get an update?

Android updates are normally received OTA (over the air), that is, sent directly to your Android phone without the need for a computer. Normally, once your Android phone or tablet is due to get an upgrade, you'll see a notification in the bar at the top of the screen. You'll then be prompted to connect to WiFi to avoid incurring extra data charges - updates can be quite big and downloading them over a mobile data connection isn’t advised.

Updates are generally one-stage processes and relatively straightforward, but in some cases you may need to back up/save any media (photos, movies, music) or apps you've downloaded before updating.

In some cases, such as with some of Sony’s and Samsung's older Android phones, you'll need to install the dedicated software supplied online by the manufacturer first.

Unlike iOS where all users get the update at the same time, regardless of device. Android updates are more fragmented, dependent on manufacturer and carrier - it can make for a frustrating experience, when some phones of the same model have the update when other phones haven’t.

[ Information ] Stock ROM vs Custom ROM

What is ROM?

Short for Read Only Memory, in this case referring to the phone's internal memory where your firmware and applications are stored. When people say they're flashing a new ROM, it means they are flashing a new version of the firmware on to their phone - the two terms are interchangeable.

What is STOCK ROM?

Stock ROM is the ROM default your mobile phone manufacturer. Sure there are some advantages offered, one of which stability. Stock ROM is a ROM that very carefully in a release through various experiments and lab by the manufacturer before it is actually released to the public.

What is CUSTOM ROM?

Custom ROM is a ROM derived from the Stock ROM, which tend to be fast in a release. To the extent that there are developers Custom ROM that gives the term "nightly" for the ROM is still trial and error phase, "RC (Release Candidate)" for the most stable ROM, as well as "stable" for the ROM which is considered to be almost the same stability when compared to parent ROM (Stock ROM).

Why do we use CUSTOM ROM?

Update Frequency

Using a custom ROM usually results in more frequent updates that fix bugs and introduce new features because the developer behind the ROM doesn't have the same procedures and red tape that the manufacturer+carrier combo does.

A quality update can be churned faster because it doesn't involve the bureaucracy of 30 different project managers, 15 vice presidents, and 5 dozen marketing departments.

A ROM developer usually gains a loyal community which beta tests his updates in real life situations and provide feedback, or even fixes bugs - that's the beauty of open source software.

And that ROMs are usually free and supported by optional donations? If you can't afford to pay for it, you don't have to.

Finally, most custom ROMs out there are updateable over the air (OTA) and without reinstalling anything.


Better Performance And Efficiency

Custom ROMs are oftentimes faster, more efficient, and use less memory because:

the developer ripped out useless garbage, such as carrier installed apps or the developer optimized the kernel. For example, an undervolted kernel can provide a much better battery life than the stock one.


Ability To Install Apps To The SD Card


Most custom ROMs nowadays come with the ability to install applications to the SD card, called Apps2SD (or A2SD).
This is currently not possible on stock ROMs, even in Android 2.1 and is supposedly on Google's TODO list.


The Downsides Of Custom ROMs

Clean Wipe

In order to install a custom ROM, you need to perform a clean wipe.
This means you will lose all existing data, so you have to back everything up first.


Potential Problems

Custom ROMs could have bugs… but then so do the stock ones.
However, in case you do find a bug, you actually have a 2-way channel of reporting it - post in the ROM forum and you will more than likely get an answer back and your bug acknowledged.
Try doing this to your phone manufacturer and see if you can get past the first level of outsourced monkeys, let alone actual developers.


You May Void Your Warranty

It's possible that custom rooting will void your warranty because you will "break the seal" on the boot loader by installing a custom rom , so double think when insalling a Custom Rom.
