Need help with your new Android device? We're on it!
It's that time of year when we tend to get new stuff. As in new Android stuff. New phones. New tablets. New watches. New ... well, pretty much anything and everything these days either runs Android or can connect to it somehow. (And if it doesn't, you probably don't want it!)
And whenever there's new stuff, there will be questions. Questions from folks new to Android as a platform, and questions from folks just getting acquainted with a new device. Or maybe just questions.
And as such, we've got a number of places here that can help you out. Today's just an overview of some of the things you'll find here at Android Central that can get you started. We'll break things down a little more this week.
Let's get started.
The Android Central Forums
There's no better way to get help than from those who have been there before. And our forums have more than 2.4 million members who have answers. And, truthfully, our forums are the easiest way to get direct help with your specific device. Just click through until you're among your people, and ask away.
A few of our more popular forums include the major smartphone manufacturers — Samsung, Sony, HTC, Motorola, LG and the like. Nexus devices are still a big deal. And our Android Wear forums are picking up steam as more folks get into the smartwatch game.
For a more leisurely browsing approach ...
The forums are just half of what we do here. On the editorial side — think news and reviews in the more traditional blog sense — well, it never stops. The front page of the site is an obvious first stop. But there are so many other spaces you should check out.
- Our hand-picked app gallery. Want to see what we're using? This is it.
- The Android Central device gallery. If you want to nail down the latest news on a given device — as well as our review and other feature breakouts — you can search for your phone or tablet or watch or whatever here.
- Our help and how-to section gets you the latest on how to use all the devices.
- Need more info on rooting your phone? Start here.
- Or are you just looking to see what the best is? The best phones? The best tablets? The best everything? We've got all the best things in one spot.

So if you're new to Android, welcome! If you're relatively experienced but are looking to learn even more, you've come to the right place! And for you veterans out there, lend a hand.
And as always, thanks!
