    NOTE: By disabling unused connectivity features when unused, including Wi-Fi, Hotspot, Bluetooth, and GPS, you can improve battery life in the long run.

    4. Tap “Preferred network type”

    2. Scroll to “Device” and tap “Apps”
    3. Make sure “All Apps” is selected in the drop-down menu at the top

    Change Sync Settings:

    1. Open the apps drawer
    2. Go to “Settings”
    3. Scroll to “Personal”
    4. Tap “Accounts” and select an account

    1. Launch “Settings”
    2. Scroll to, and tap “About phone”
    3. Tap “System updates” and check if an update is available
