Hello,

I know I'm late (very late), but today I got my first cell phone ever! (and if I could I would wait for a while, but since I do not have a home phone anymore, I need one)

It's a android LG G3, and I wanted to know:

- Do you have any tips, thing to do / not do?

- And what is your best apps that I should install and I will not be able to live without them after that?

First thing: when installing apps, always ALWAYS look at the detailed permissions before installing. I've seen cool looking games that want to launch as soon as your phone boots, be able to see all the apps you have running, and snoop into your contacts, for example. Google's "simplified permissions" are bloody useless for knowing whether an app is doing something that may invade your privacy.

 

Check out the Amazon app store as well. They have a free app of the day that changes every day. You can get some sweet deals that way.

 

My experience was that I found a ton of apps at first, and overloaded my device. Now, I have a couple dozen games on my phone, but only play 3 regularly.

I completely agree with WP. Just always remember that there is no such thing as free...you will pay one way or another. And also remember to do a complete restart of your device every week or so, that will keep help to avoid some potential crashes that will eventually happen. Oh, and even though they can be fun or helpful, location based services are evil in my opinion. I don't want anyone to know where I am at all times...

I COMPLETELY agree with this! But for legal reasons, I can't say why...

 

But I can mention that you can run Kali Linux on some Android devices now. Imagine the possibilities...

Don't worry, I won't enter the war android vs ios, because android has already won the war, and I could not be happier :P (I seriously hate most of the apple products)

 

 

What I want to know is how you could live without a cell phone until now...

It's simple, I +/- follow the rules of voluntary simplicity (not sure that the word in english), but I try to have only the minimum material stuff possible.

I don't care about all that, my tv is about 15years old, don't have a car (I have the money if I wanted one, but don't), always move by walking or by bike, and appreciate what is free and public to everyone :)

Well, I give a thumbs app for all of the above, then add this one: how active are you in the dating market? if very, you might want some "selective privacy" couple of apps, if you know what I mean.
