Default struggling with note 2

I am having difficulty getting to grips with the device. Not having an android device before.

I am finding that there are just so many icons and apps running, i feel out of control with it. I mean drop box, i dont use that and may not ever, what can i do with it? there is just so much "clutter" it is out of control, it is syncing with stuff all over the place and adding contacts... argghhhhh



There are icons all over, such as Chat On, I wont use this, its bloatware, whatsapp has this market area covered. But I have to see a chat on icon everytime i go to send a message!!?

help

That's the problem when you have too much freedom. Freedom on what you can do with android is a double edge knife in that it provides too may options to setup what works best and thus requires more time to learn it. I would suggest that you take the time to try and test things out as in the end you will be happier. You should also look at the threads about best apps, top 5 apps, post your screen shots to see how others have setup their devices.

The thing is I dont think I am a numpty when it comes to tech, people often come to me to help them out. Im only 29 haha

And I am a pretty heavy user of the web, but i just feel like I have a box with a mind of its own. I dont like the fact I cannot add my own message alerts and have to use stock ones.

I feel to be in for the ride with stuff updating and sending all over the place.

Lets start with the basics, Acuweather comes as standard but i read on here the met office widget is better, so how do I go about swopping these?

If you are looking into customization i would suggest to wait until someone comes out with a Root guide, and some custom roms, and go that route, if you are truly looking to experience your device at its' full potential.

Until then, you will just have to live with accuweather being the default, unless you put some widgets around with the Weather app.

Need to start looking at your settings. Tons of settings that you need to change to make the device do what you want etc.

Dropbox is for storage place for your music/pictures etc over wifi.

Have you found the widget section? You can add widgets on google play.

You can arrange icons as needed, in folders etc so you don't have icons all over the place. Called organization

To further do what you need (message alerts) check out google play to buy apps

thanks, dont think i will root it yet though, need to get to grips with it first.

How much money do samsung make from these app makers for putting them all over their hardware. I mean allshareplay?? do i need that? not yet and if i did i want to install it not have it stuck on the screen.

I suppose I will tidy it up a little by making an original apps folder and sticking all the carp in there.

It wont get rid of the chat on icon though when I go to send a message will it..

i have got rid of some of the icons by holding them then forcing stop and disabling them, is this what is meant by freezing them? How do I unfreeze them in future?

You hit the nail on the head. There's so much freedom. I had been reading so much of what you can do with the phone, and when I finally got it, all I could do was stare at it. I was like "Okay, what the hell do I do now? What the hell do I do now!?" I just didn't know where to start. My suggestion is to do what I did. I'm coming from ios, so I stay moving apps around and removing apps from the home screen until I got to a place I was familiar with. Then just go from there as far as more customization. Keep it simple. There are a ton of launchers and themes but you don't have to use them just to show your a "serious"Android user.

I've read through this a couple of times now, I have a note 2 and use it as a phone/tablet/laptop. It has so many settings and capabilities its unbelievable. To answer one of your questions you can use your own notifications and are by no means stuck with using what's on the device. But if you've never used android at all before its going to take a bit of time to get used to that in itself and then all of the notes quirks. If you haven't already done so can I suggest you read the online users manual which will take you step by step through the basics. You will find it already in internet bookmarks, then tackle one thing at a time on it. Enjoy the note 2 its very probably the best android you could have.

As a convenience, in the link below are all known USA Galaxy Note Owners Manuals along with the "International Master Reference"

USA Carrier OS Fragmentation
I'm also coming from an IPhone 4 and due to receive my AT&T phone today.

But tell you what, I may simply delay inserting the SIM for a few days and instead just run the device off WI-FI at home for a while until I'm more familiar with this phone.

No need to jump into the deep end of the pool on the first day if this is your Only communication device.

Cluttered how? Apps that can't be removed? iOS has those too. I don't get it.

The apps use frequently should be on your homescreens. The apps you infrequently use put in folders, or leave them in the app drawer.

Apps you never use, if possible, uninstall.

You can also "hide" apps from the app drawer if you cannot uninstall.

Yeah that was a ICS feature right? It helps to "unclutter" a ton of stuff and make it as simple as you want.

I fly planes, I ride bikes I operate ANPR systems at work, I am sure it will come. I just like the device to be "neat" and sorted for me if that makes sense. Out of the box there is more chaos than a windows machine with all this bloatware and random syncing and chat apps.

You know where I am coming from...

It's not as "simple" as Apple devices, but what you do get it a vastly more powerful and customizable phone.

Sometimes stock android devices are best for new Android converts.

Saying something is too cluttered is a relative statement. That is the point of an OS like Android - customization. If you want a lot on your screen(s), you can; if you don't, you don't have to. It's up to you. I've seen some Android users that have nothing but their wallpaper on their homescreen.

Liam, I know where you're coming from. I come from a very complicated background (professionally). The profession that I'm in now, I work with many who can not handle complexities. So I always use the K.I.S.S. method (Keep It Simple Silly).

With that being said, please don't give up on this amazing device. As others have said, look through the settings. To take that a step further - try out each setting, one at a time, to see how it works for YOU. Then try out each app, each widget, each screen, & so on, one at a time, always finding what works for YOU. It will be less overwhelming &, at least in my opinion, makes the newness of the device last much longer.

It's great that with all of the different Android devices that I've seen, no 2 layouts have ever been the same!

Going from an iPhone to an Android device is like going from a baby tricycle to a BMW. You'll get the hang of it over time, I had to do the same two years ago.

hey OP... first relax.. take a breath.

you homescreen is what you see most of the time. remove anything off that you dont want to use. it will be in the app drawer if you want to bring it back. Dont think about what is in the app drawer.

next.. you might notice thinks running in the background...
my best suggestion to you: dont think about it!
android likes to try to use up the RAM and have things it think you will need or use.
it does not slow your system or use up battery.

bloatware.. you can not get rid of them.. unless you root the device.
it is put there by the carrier... and some by the manufacturer

first, play with the apps that you have with the phone... get to know them first.
later, you can look for replacements.

What I suggest is do a little research on Google and you tube. I know as strange as it sounds you don't have 1 friend with an Android phone? Some of my friends call me and say how do I do this or what's this and I'm happy to help. You're at a"new job" find a trainer.... Hahaha

I don't see anyone pointing this out.. but if I understand you correctly... you are complaining about Chat On popping up as an option everytime you go to send a message? You need to check the box to set default when that window pops up and then select which application you want to use. You won't see it pop up again. The only place you should see it is the App drawer.

Once you get the basics sorted Liam, I would get a message app if thats what you want to customise.
I use Handcent SMS, its a pretty simple app (its got to be because my wife can use it ) but it can be customised to what you like, there are lots of different settings from different tones for different people to changing the notification light colour for different people/groups. The 1st app that goes on my new android device is this!
There are also other sms apps out there but I've not tried them.
I haven't had an iphone but I have had the ipad2 and to be fair the experience was good, software good to work with but there were restrictions, I'm not going to go into these but I'm sure people know what I mean and jailbreaking is not my idea of a solution.
So getting this handset meant the ipad was made redundant and so I sold that and my Galaxy S2 to make back the money I spent on this and I will say I'm not in the least regretting it!
Give it some time mate, there is no need to root it just now as there will be software updates over the next year or two, then if you find you want more from the device or try other roms, go for it.
To me the Note 2 Uk sim free model is by far the best phone I've had the pleasure of owning or using, can't speak for other countries/carriers as software differs.

Hey Liam,

Have patience!! You will figure it alllll out. There is so much help on the internet to help you out as well.

You can totally make the home screen the way you like it.

I'm 29 too, and people at work have ME put their computer systems for them... they are all engineers, and I am in HR... go figure... but that just means they think you know.. so pretend! haha

I am finally (I hope) receiving my Note 2 next week and I can't waitttt to play with it!

Use YouTube for your questions, I find a lotttt of stuff there and ask guys/girls here... they respond really quick. Don't let technology beat you! lol You've got the power

OK so this is all the motivation I had in me for the day

ENJOY your note
