    Default Coming back to Android

    So I bit the bullet and bought a really nice used Xperia ZL, I have been on Windows for the last year and a half so I guess I kind of forgotten about the ecosystem. What are the first things I need to do when I get my phone?

    Welcome back! Can you be a little more specific? Are you talking about the very basics, or are you asking about ways to optimize the performance?

    In the meantime, maybe this guide will refresh your memory: http://forums.androidcentral.com/gen...id-2014-a.html

    Install a different launcher.
    Replace the stock messaging and music apps.
    Install Zooper Pro.

    Those are the first steps I take. So, give in to peer pressure!

    Your welcome. The free version is good. It has plenty of extras. If you like it the paid version is 4 bucks I think. I highly recommend it. But there are those who swear by Nova. Don't get me wrong, Nova is just as good as Apex. However, the free version does not offer as much as the free version of Apex.
