    I'm relatively new to Android and was considering getting a second phone as a backup and for international use on Project Fi.

    How does it work with multiple devices and your Google account? Can I have two or more devices referring to the one account? How does that affect installed apps, backups, etc.?

    Or is it preferable to have a separate account for a second device?

    Shouldn't be an issue. If you're thinking of the automatic backups, those are based on which device they were from.

    I have 3 devices linked to both of my Google-based accounts (one Gmail, one G-Suite) and have had no issues.

    Are you on Fi already? If not, PM me and I can send you a referral code if you want, we both benefit from it.
