how and where to get Android applications
I am new to Smartphone and I am new to Android phone as well. I bought an Android Smartphone from a local company in China when I travelled there one week ago. It model number is Thl W3 and the Android version is 4.0.4. Now I am trying to download some Android applications from Google Play Store but failed because there is no Google Play Store app (icon) pre-installed on this phone. I have sent an email to the manufacturer to ask about this.
But in the meantime I am trying to find alternative ways to get those good Android applications. I hope experts here can help me about this.
Can I find a package which includes that pre-installed Google Play Store app online somewhere and reinstall everything from scratch for my phone?
Can I find other Android application resources other than Google site?
