Android Smartphones

The best thing about Android smartphones is the flexibility to customize and personalize the device according to your preferences.

Apple’s iOS is slowly catching up with iOS 14 but for now Android is the perfect operating system to go nuts on.

Also, there’s a ton of customisation apps in the Google Play Store.

So if you just got a new Android phone or want to revamp your old Android device – here’s where and how to start personalizing your phone.
