The Android mobile operating system provides a lot of options for you in the “Settings” menu. Whether to get some information about your device or to customise it, all you have to do is find your way to the “Settings” menu and you are good to go.

However, because there are lots and lots of options in the “Settings” menu, knowing where to go can sometimes be confusing for some users.

Now, to the subject of the day, checking the Android version running on your phone is quite very easy and starting from your home screen, it would only take a few taps on your screen for you to get the information that you need.

  1. Go to the “Settings” menu. You can do this by
    • tapping the menu button on your home screen and selecting menu2015-01-13 21.42.23
    • or opening your apps drawer and selecting settings
    •  2015-01-13 21.43.20
    • or opening your notification area by swiping downwards from the top of your device and selecting the “gears” icon.

  2. Depending on the make of your device and the version of Android, scroll down to the last item on the “Settings” menu or select the tab labelled “General”, then scroll down to and select the last item, which is “About Device”.2015-01-13 21.46.21   2015-01-13 21.46.53
  3. Locate your Android version in the list staring at you. 2015-01-13 21.47.29

EXTRAS: If on a Samsung phone, you can tap the Android version about 3 to 6 times continuously to view an animation for your android version. For this Android 4.4.2 version (KitKat), a big “K” is displayed on your screen, which you can swipe in a circular manner to rotate the “K”. After a few rotations, it would then display “Android” on a red background.
