User manuals for Android smartphones can typically be found on the official website of the phone's manufacturer. For example, the user manual for the Google Nexus 7 can be found in the Support section of Google.com. Websites such as MakeUseOf.com and HowToGeek.com also provide instructions for Android smartphones.
By accessing the user manual in the Nexus Help Center within the Support section of Google.com, visitors gain access to multiple categories that explain how to use apps and widgets, transfer files and navigate the Android operating system. MakeUseOf.com and HowToGeek.com cover general areas such as the interface, the Android marketplace and security concerns. Since every Android smartphone uses a version of the same operating system, user manuals and instructions on such websites are nearly universal.
