ANDROIDConsumer Reports ranks the Samsung Galaxy Android S4 as better than the iPhone, and 52 percent of U.S. smartphone owners have an Android phone. Here are some Android tips for that silent majority:

–Got an email you want to share or save? You can send text from an email to an online storage account, by highlighting it and tapping “share.”

— Don’t feel stuck with whatever browser came with your Android phone. Android lets you download Firefox, Chrome or other web browsers.

–Hate the keyboard? Use “Swype,” a popular virtual keyboard available only on Android phones. (For iPhone users, a new $5 app called “Nintype,” is a cross between Swype and a regular keyboard, and may offer the best of both worlds.)
