comment How can I tell that my phone uses the Wi-Fi connection for data traffic?
When you connect to Wi-Fi network, your EDGE/H/3G icon in status bar should be gone. It means, your mobile data isn't being used.

comment How to show only gmail's contacts in the Contacts app?
Try EX dialer.... Its lightweight and it provides more features than stock contacts app. But, its over 1.5MB which you can tradeoff.

comment Can an encrypted Android phone be unlocked with an USB drive some way?
If you are talking about default encryption system shipped with Android, you can't autologin even with NFC. Forget about the USB.

comment Why does “Power off” actually reboot?
No, it's not normal. If you are in warranty, go to the service center. OTA updates aren't triggered automatically. You need to tap it from notification.

comment How can I determine if a device is really running Android?
You can go to Settings to see Android version in About. If the option doesn't exist, the device needs serious inspection because it's possible that the device isn't running Android at all. Share more in in information so that we could detect. Probably, some screenshots of different parts of system can help.
