Samsung Galaxy S4

How can I get my images off my Galaxy SIV?

Episode 991

Steve from Chino Hills, CA

Steve has a Samsung Galaxy S4, but he's having trouble with the external microSD card causing the phone not to see his images. Leo says that there's a bug in the camera firmware of the GS4, when it comes to saving to the SD card. Leo says there's a firmware upgrade that addresses the issue. Android and SD cards have always been a mixed bag, and a necessary evil. This is why Leo saves to internal storage and uploads directly to DropBox to backup.

Is there a way upgrade a phone and keep an unlimited data plan? (Part 1)

Episode 981

Matt from Fontana, CA

Matt recently upgraded to the Samsung Galaxy S4 and managed to keep his unlimited data plan through Verizon. Leo says that often third party independent cellular stores know of options that the carrier will simply refuse to offer. The independent operator wants to keep his customers happy, not the corporation. Matt says he was able to do it by using one of the other lines on his family plan. Leo says that's a great loophole. However, even "unlimited" isn't always unlimited. He may end up being throttled if he's a heavy data user.

There was an announcement that there will be a Nexus version of the Samsung Galaxy SIV soon running pure vanilla Android. They barely even talked about Google glass, which they just launched. They did, however, have plenty to say about Google+, which Leo says shows that Google is all in on their social network. Leo also says he thinks that Google+ will be adding SMS to challenge Facebook Messenger.

David from Manhattan Beach, CA

David is going to Google I/O for the first time and he's excited. He wants to know about the Samsung Galaxy SIV.

He also likes that the Galaxy SIV can exchange batteries.
