There is an old saying, “What you don’t find in an Official site, you find in a Forum.” And for those of you who have spent even a little time in forums very well know how informative they can be. According to me a Forum is pretty much like a cosplay event. Just like in a cosplay event, people come together to talk about the common thing they like. Similarly, in case of a Forum, people from different backgrounds come together to talk about the things they like, find solutions to a problem regarding a particular issue or simply sit and engage in conversation. Thus, in short, a Forum is basically an online platform where you can come up with your queries and hope to find other professionals or similar minded people to help come up with a solution for queries that you might have.
Today, however we will be talking specifically about a particular type of Forum i.e. the top Android Forums you can find online to be the gateway to answers for all your queries related to Android OS and devices.
Here I will be listing out some of the very best online android forums out there, where not only you will find answers to your queries, but a lot more than that. And I am pretty certain that once you try out these Forums and get the hang of it. You will no longer feel the need to go anywhere else for solutions related to Android.

It is said to be the largest of Android Forums in the Internet today and consist of users from a very wide spectrum of backgrounds.

It is one very popular destination where you are sure to find solutions and answers to any queries related to the Android OS from upcoming updates to bug fixes to free resources.

Now, it is seen as one platform where you can find everything related to Android OS, making it a perfect playground for both Android developers and users.
Anyways now that we have got a bit of an idea what to expect from the Forum. Let us next have a detailed tour of the entire forum, so that you know what treasure lies in-front.

- The Website is divided mainly into five main categories: News, Forums, Devices, Topics and Best Posts.
- Out of all the categories, the two important ones which I believe will prove to be the most beneficial for any Android enthusiast would be Forums and Topics.
- The Topic category mainly comprises of Tutorials, Mods and other such resources which you can use to enhance and upgrade your Android systems with utmost ease.
- The Forums section on the other hand comprises of all you can ask for. Moreover, it has been further broadly divided and categorised into sub forum section like Android Auto, Android Mods, Android TV, Apps & Games, Themes and OS. Hence, making life much more systematic and simpler for you.

From news about the latest updates and changes, to rumours of upcoming new updates, just about everything is covered up by the Android Central community. The forum consists of an engaging community who will take up any discussion you put forth and turn it into a bi scale discussion filled with constructive solutions and alternatives.
The other cool thing about this forum that has really got me hooked to it, is the buyer’s guide section or feature. When you are planning to buy something, a buyer’s guide just seems to be like a boon coming straight down from the heavens. And when it comes to a buyer’s guide for android devices, the Android Central is just the perfect ground for you.
Also, there is one more thing for which Android Central just stands out. This forum website may be seen as a website which can be seen as a forum cum e-commerce website.

The rest of the categories are basically a sub forum of all other brands of android devices which are listed properly.
If you are more into simplistic looks and approach, then this is the perfect forum for you. Here you can download free apps and other useful mods absolutely for free.

The website is divided into a number of important categories, namely; Reviews, Phones, Tablets, Apps, Devices, Deals and Tip Ups.

- As for the Apps section, this is particularly where you will find information about the most popular and latest apps in the market. As well as other information related to a particular app or software.

- When it comes to the Deals section, there is particularly a number of attractive offers that the Android Authority team has to offer. Although, most of the time its just letting you into secrets. Still there are times when they actually come up with some attractive offers you can avail and be really proud about.
- Then there is the section about Apps and Games, which as the name itself suggest is one place where you will be bombarded with all new information and news related to particular apps or games that you would most probably be interested in.
