Posted at — Dec 19, 2018

I’m configuring my Android phone and for the first time in a long time it’s asking me for all sorts of config questions. I do not mind the questions all that much because I’ve elected not to restore the backup in order to prevent bugs or battery suck from entering my phone.I’d like to say I answered all the questions but I don’t believe it. Every so often the phone starts asking more new questions. In the meantime there was some configuration that I needed to dofingerprintpattern unlock and visibilitya shit-ton of security and OS updatesLet me interrupt this list to say that I went to the battery configuration.  The battery was first charged 265 days ago, has been on for 4 hours and has 56% battery left with 4 hours remaining. I do not like those numbers but I seem to be stuck with them for jesturesringtoneWiFi accessBluetooth headsetBluetooth connection to my laptopBluetooth connection to my car is not complete yet… not going outside yethotspot and passwordupdate all other appsConsidering I need to install various aftermarket applications…Microsoft AuthenticatorMicrosoft SkypeGoogle Keepwhatsapppaybyphoneecwidfandangobandpaystatefarmkayakalaskadeltasouthwestfastfikindleamazon videoamazon shoppingHP 12C HP 15Cmattermoststarbucksnetflixomrongoogle fituberusps mobileamazon alexaflorida trailgoogle wifinesttivogoogle homeNow the question I have for myself… what can I do without?
