comment Why has Android AntiVirus apps while iOS does not?
@RichardBorcsik I'm aware of the difference between the two, however, anti-virus apps usually provide protection against both viruses and general malware. I feel that, in context, both types of software are mention, although not explicitly

comment I've deleted Google Play Store. How can I reinstall it?
If I give you a link an app's page on the Google Play Store, you should receive an option to open it using your Market/Play app. Try clicking this with your phone: play.google.com/store/apps/…

comment What are the features that HTC Sense has that vanilla Android does not have?
I really, REALLY dislike Sense, and completely removed it from my phone, but I've not seen any concrete evidence that the extra processes reduce battery life in an appreciable way. Perhaps you can add a link? I know first-hand that it reduces performance, but also not by a great amount. Oh yeah, for completeness, you might want to add that it changes the look and feel of the UI, and adds some extra features to the notifications pane (on newer models).

comment Do apps that claim to increase SD card performance really work? Strain on card?
I really agree with you on this, I feel that on the majority of cases you might end up wasting resources doing useless readaheads. And, as you mentioned, the engineers at Google, HTC, Samsung, et al are not stupid.

comment Which music-ID app uses less data? Soundhound or Shazam?
Essentially I ended up using SoundHound (better UI), while blocking it from using mobile data with DroidWall.
