    From the Homescreen press Menu - Settings - Display - Brightness. Then choose the desired brightness setting. You can also select Automatic brightness to let the phone decide for you.

    If you want to go to settings, then normally you would go to your home screen, then press the Menu key and select Settings.

    There is however a quicker way of getting to your Settings. Simply drag your notification bar down from the top of the screen and press the Gear icon. It should be the second right icon in the top right corner.

    If you want to install Apps outside of the Android Market (called sideloading), then go to Settings - Security - Unknown sources.

    Note: use at your own risk.

    To lock your screen while you are watching videos, simply press the power button.

    This will disable the touchscreen buttons while the video is playing, but it won't turn the screen off like the lock key normally does.

    Note, this will only work on video files that you are playing that are stored on your phone. It won't work for videos played within websites, such as YouTube videos.

    Unlocking can bring many important benefits and can save you a considerable amount of money.

    We provide a comprehensive phone unlocking guide which explains what unlocking means, why you should unlock, and the safest and cheapest place to get it done.

    Simply go to the menu at the top of this page and select: Phone Guides - Unlock Your Phone Guide.

    If you have been browsing websites that you would prefer other people to not know about, then it's relatively simply to clear your browsing history.

    Open the browser and press the Menu button. Then Settings - Privacy - Delete personal data.

    From here you can select whether to clear the cache, cookies, passwords and more.

    If you are browsing YouTube videos on your phone and they appear blurry, then this is usually because of your connection speed.

    If you are using 3G / 4G and you're in an area of low signal strength, then YouTube will sometimes automatically reduce the quality of the video. Unfortunately this can make the video very pixelated and of poor quality.

    If you are using the standard Android browser, then when the video is in full screen, press the back button. Then press HQ and start playing it again.

    If you are using another browser, then press the Settings icon on the bottom right of the YouTube video. Then change the quality.

    This may improve the quality, but it may also lead to buffering issues.

    Another solution is to use a WiFi connection, if one is available.

    If you are not happy with your notification light, then you can change and tweak it. Go to the Android Market and download an App called Lightflow.

    You might need to enable the notification light before the App works. Go to Settings - Display. Then check Pulse notification.

    The standard Android keyboard is good, but not great. There are many third party keyboards available which will improve your typing speed and accuracy.

    Go to the Android Market and search for 'Keyboard' to see some great alternatives, many of which are more accurate and make typing much easier.
    A good one is GoKeyboard.

    If you see a warning saying the keyboard will collect all information (including credit cards) just ignore this. This is just a security feature that Android shows for every third-party keyboard that you install.
