Completely new with Android, HTC One as my first device; looking for some tips?
I guess this can serve as my introductory thread as it's my first post on these forums. I came from the apple ecosystem, owning a iPod 1G, iPod 2G, iPhone 4, thus leading to the end of my contract; therefore I recently ordered and received my sleek new HTC One.
I have absolutely no idea how to completely take advantage of the customization provided on the Android platform, though I did jailbreak all of my past iDevices. I have a couple questions that I'd rather ask the community in real time than simply read a thread. I decided to post here instead.
What are the advantages of gaining root access to your phone?
What are some useful vanilla tweaks or apps that I can find on the google play store?
Is there a "find my iPhone" style service for Android?
Are you able to change the wallpaper for home/lockscreen separately?
What deterred you from getting other phones (iPhone 5, SG4) and made you get this?
How have you been enjoying your new HTC One?
I hope that I will continue to contribute to these forums, and hope for a good time with Android.
