Episode 1547 (1:41:46)

Tim from Kansas

Tim is tired of getting phones with overlays and corporate logos in the OS. Where can he get a simple, vanilla Android phone? Leo says that the Google Pixel 3 is what he'll want, and there's some great deals to be had. And with the new Night Shot mode, it's by far the best phone on the market right now. The key though, is to avoid getting it through a carrier.

He can also just go with Apple and the iPhone. It's about as vanilla an experience as he could get, considering it's Apple. How different is it? Leo says he'll have a learning curve making the change, but it's largely muscle memory. Once he gets it, it's very easy. Apple is more secure and private, too. The iPhone is a very good choice. but if he wants to stay with Android, he should get the Google Pixel 3. And he should check out Google Fi, too.
