Frequently Asked Questions by Android Users
Question 1: If and when will my smartphone get new update?
No one knows the answer to this except the manufacturers. It all depends on the smartphone company whether to release an update or not.
Generally speaking, the more expensive your device is, the better are its chances of getting updated to the next major release of Android. OEMs like Google, Motorola, OnePlus and LG keep most of their devices up to date. If we talk about Samsung, it doesn’t care much about the old devices once they launch a new product.
When you will get update also depends on your carrier and the amount of customization that your device manufacturer has done on top of the Android OS. More the customization, the longer will they take to push new updates.
Question 2: Which Antivirus program I should use?
To be frank you do not need an Antivirus on your smartphone if you are only installing apps from the Play Store or other official apps stores. You may however install a program to make use of the additional functionality that they offer such as:
- Remote Wiping User data
- Locking and locating your device if it’s lost

When your device is new you get a very good battery life. But after few days you may observe a decline in the backup of your device. Most of the times, the culprit is the long list of apps that you’ve installed which are constantly running in the background.
This is the major reason for effecting the battery life. So to increase you battery life remove all the unnecessary apps which are not used often. You may also make use of the Auto-start Manager if your device comes bundled with one to block apps from starting automatically.
