    Thats why i watch this channel, these guys just helps those new comers get to grips with android, would have loved someone to teach me on SD card permissions in apps and weird errors when I jumped over to android. Actually I had a moto G and nexus 7 before I went to LG. I'm back on iOS but that's a preference and I would go back to android in 2 heartbeats.

    Love that droid life also covers individual phones interface and phone settings where you won't get to see in reviews or other videos, really helpful to know the difference between phones, android is the same but granular features are not. Like LG has that bluetooth auto starting apps and what happens when you get home, auto turn on wifi or something tasker like. Also not a fan of the way LG did expandable notification, sometimes won't expand, those kinds of things.

    Google used to have a translator of what was on the screen, just with a long press in the home button. After the latest updates that "feature" dissapeared, or maybe I couldn't find it but it was really usefull to me.
