    Ok, I finally am in a place where I can get myself a Razer Phone, as soon as they are available in Australia. This will be my first Android phone, and I know absolutely NOTHING about the platform.

    Does anybody have some advice on where I can go to actually learn the OS without having an Android phone? Any tips on keeping the system optimized or what NOT to install?

    I have spent the last 7+ years with iPhones, but I love Razer, so ...

    Thanks in advance!

    First - they interface is quite different. Android can be customized in ways that iOS usually can not. So, in the beginning it's probably going to be quite confusing. Once you learn what is different and how you can do the basics then I don't think you'll feel much of a difference.

    My whole family uses Samsung, but my son-in-law only does iPhone, and we've seen the differences. However he recently chose a Samsung tablet over an iPad and he absolutely loves it. It took him a while to adjust, but once he did he could use both with great ease. So, he has an iPhone with the Samsung tablet.

    I've never seen the Apple Store, so I'm not sure how different it is from the Google Play Store, but that's easy enough to navigate. My personal recommendation is just don't install any programs that don't have at least 4 stars unless they are from reputable companies. For example, my local company that provides my home alarm system doesn't get the greatest reviews on their app, but I still use it because it's the only way I can see my cameras and control my lights from my phone while I'm away.

    It'll be a learning experience, enjoy it! :)

    That’s was me, after 7 years using iPhone RP1 was my first android. Honestly I prefer ios environment (sorry Android users;)) because maybe I get used to to that environment, 120Hz screen smoothness and decent speakers made me using it as my entertainment phone more than my iPhone 6splus, if you have that size phone you’ll be fine with RP2 size. I missed from iPhone are force touch, gasture back to previous page like on safari, iMessage and FaceTime (for my dudes and families who using it). You can install anything on that it’s like Blade comes with no bloatware at all, I like their themes store personaly. Oh yes I believe rp2 will come also with developer mode, kind Beta things like ugh ugh Synapse 3 ugh ugh that could set your usb c plugging setting if it for charging, data transfer etc and also could display FPS, to unlock it there’s a special command...forgot what it’s but you’ll find it later I believe. I’d recommend you get it not from a courier company, seems android update depend on that if you buy one from courier unlike iPhone. There was someone who counting his waiting time like in Jail in other regions with courier RP meanwhile me that bought from Amazon or user that got it directly from Razer got it already way earlier.
    Hope that help.
