I was expecting more real tips & tricks. The book has several, but the majority of it is a regular manual for the functions. It will spend a couple pages on obvious things like how to open and reply to an email. I would rather it assume you know how to do basic things, make the book shorter, and then just really tell you extra tips/tricks.Also note that Android devices vary significantly in their interface and apps. This book tries to use stock Android as the reference, but I couldn't follow everything exactly because my Samsung phone has different interface points. That makes it hard for any book to be generic.

Have not used it much; easier than hauling book around with me

It was not what I thought and wish I could return it.

Too technical I just want a reference manual with comprehensive subjects covered.
