Introduction

About more than a year ago I got my brand new Samsung Galaxy S5 from my employer. We’re in the lucky situation, that we can choose the phone we want to use. Even though this is restricted to iPhone and Samsung. I really don’t like iOS at all for several good reasons which I don’t want to discuss here now (technically it’s not a discussion…) so I picked the Samsung S5. It was the most flagship phone of Samsung at the time being. I was happy.

Android

Who knows me know that I love Android.

This is going to be a short post. I hate the fact that Google is going to call the (at THIS moment) new OS K*tK*t. I will not write the whole name due to search eninge reasons which I don’t want to support.

Well, Google starts to annoy me. After turning off Latitude, this is the next step to make deals like this. Stick to what you were praising.

 

P.S. a 5.0 would have been nicer. BTW, what happens after Z?

First of all, I love Android. It’s open, most Applications are free and it’s easy to use. Also it has a wide range of models.

One of my favorite apps is „LBE Privacy Guard“. This app allows you to control „who can do what“. Currently version 2 is the most current one. You can deny access to you location, call logs, etc. For instance: Shazam requires you to agree sending your location. Why? I don’t understand the need for that. This way I just deny the access and it’s blocked. Shazam will just see some fake data and is happy. Also, I want to use the Facebook application but I really don’t want Facebook to see my address book. That’s what they do, they scan your address book. This way I can just block it and Facebook doesn’t see anything but is still happy.
