Want to get the best out of your Android Device? The best way to configure it to save juice and make it much more easier, productive and last longer? Here’s how you should set up your Android device based on what you are trying to achieve. I’ll describe what you should do and then go into the details of how to do it.
Certain settings will be ideal for both productivity and saving battery. As most Android owners can tell you, anything you can do to save battery is a good thing.
Less home screens
Whenever you get a new Android device, it will have anywhere from 5 to 7 home screens with icons and widgets scattered all over. Ideally what you want to do is condense all of the home screens down to as few as possible. What this will do for you is create less scrolling from screen to screen looking for an application or widget.
Use a different home screen launcher
Home screen launchers are one of the easiest ways to change how it Android tablet operates. The home screen launcher can change the cosmetics of the application icons, add application docks at the bottom of the screen and add more functionality to the home screens. Some of the functionality can be gestures (which I’ll talk about later), different widgets and other customization.
