Finally finished this title. I learned more from here than from the book that is written specifically for the Samsung Galaxy Note. Say what you want, the titles in the Dummies series are always fun to read and instructional.
3.5 I did learn some things, but not much. Mostly just some stuff about the keyboard and a setting my phone didn't have. Probably more helpful with older, as in not the newest, Android phone.

This was a little out of date but as usual an excellent introduction into the topics. I read it cover to cover despite the introduction telling me not to and found some good pointers. Most of the stuff I had figured out myself already through trial and error. However, I remember how I felt when I was confronted with an Android for the first time and this book would have been EXTREMELY helpful then. And don't forget you can go to for updates.

I liked this book because it starts with no assumptions! In creating a class for new android phone users (usually seniors) -- I often find it difficult to find tech books that start at the beginning and assume no knowledge of prior phones or android tablets. This book does that and provides clear instructions with lots of pictures. Well done!

Heather: While this wasn't the best help book for me, it's got a lot to offer to users who aren't familiar with the Android interface. If you're looking at getting some sort of device that runs on any of the Android operating systems I highly recommend checking this book out.

I don't think this book is a good choice for people with any experience with information processing equipment, i.e. almost anyone. It's far too simple and it seeks to explain ideas that have already permeated the culture. It might have been useful five or six years ago.

Very useful for Android users.
You can find any thing you wanna know about your phone in this book; how to use, what apps should you have, how to save the battery.. etc.

I learned a lot from reading this book. Even on topics I was already familiar with I learned a new thing or two. Now I am confident in using my Android phone.
Would be useful for someone who has just got a new Android phone and were looking for hints and tips, not useful for me.

Only read selected pages. It may relate more to Samsung Androids than the Motorola Android phone that I was interested in finding out more about.

It was basic, but okay, a lot of stuff I found by trail and error before I got to the chapter.
