5. Log into Your Google Account

Almost all the Android devices would prompt you to log into your Google account during the setup process. You can skip this in case you don't have a Google account and log in later after creating one. Its much recommended to sign in the account because Google will sync your device a number of online services. It is the first step in privatizing your Android phone. Enabling this account will automatically set your calendar, email, and your contacts hence preparing your smartphone to synchronize your identity in all devices. And, in case you had an Android phone prior to that one, your new phone will connect automatically with Google Play Store and try to download all the Apps you had in the old Android phone. That is really amazing!
