All of the following are class features of the Android Paragon.
Weapon and Armor Proficiency: An android paragon is proficient with all simple and martial weapons as well as light and medium armor and all shields (except tower shields).
Spellcasting/Initiating/Manifesting: At 2nd, 3rd and 5th level you gain new spells/powers/manuevers as if you had taken a level in class to which you belonged before adding the paragon class level. You do not, however, gain any other benefit a character of that class would have gained. If you had more than one spellcasting/initiating/manifesting class before becoming a android paragon, you must decide to which class to add each level for the purpose of determining spells/powers/maneuvers.
If you do not have any initiating, manifesting or spellcasting classes you instead gain a single bonus feat you meet the prerequisites for at 2nd and 5th level.
Variable Save (Ex): At 1st level an adroid paragon can choose to have either a good Reflex save or Will save, and her current and future android paragon levels are changed accordingly. She retains a good Fortitude save as normal.
Emotions (Ex): At 3rd level the android paragon has successfully gained the ability to feel emotions like an human. If she had a penalty on charisma-based check from her race it is lifted, if she did not she instead receive a +2 bonus on all her charisma-based checks against living creatures. On the flip side she cannot become immune to moral effect and if she was previously immune she lose the immunity.
Superior Construction (Ex): A 4th level android paragon gain bonus hit point as a construct of her size. If she already had that ability she gains bonus hit point as a construct one size category bigger.
Humanity (Ex): At 5th level an android paragon count as an humanoid with the (human) subtype whenever it would be advantageous. Additionally she gains one bonus feat she meet the prerequisites of and gain one additional skill point per level (gained retroactively and multiples by 4 at 1st level as normal).
