How to organize Android properly?

view story

http://forums.androidcentral.com – My Lumia 800 is sent to repairs with a dead speaker so currently I'm using my dad's older Samsung Galaxy Xcover with Android 2.3. I know Android 2.3 does not represent the modern Android experience of today at all, but I still consider this my first real use scenario with Android as the very basics are more or less the same from what little I know. So my question is: As a first time Android user, how do you use the platform properly? I don't have many apps on the Xcover but on my Lumia 800 I use more apps. Which apps do you pin to one or more of your home screens, which don't you pin? Ho (HowTos)
