iPhone, Android, Windows Phone, Blackberry, or feature phones.
Bill and his wife's Gmail accounts have apparently been mixed up. Somehow, his wife seems to be the account holder on his phone. Leo says at some point, it is possible that Bill's account content was moved to his wife's. Navigate to Google Account Settings, and check which face and email address are being displayed.
Not to be outdone by Samsung's near $2,000 folding smartphone, Huawei introduced an opposite-folding Android device, and listing it at just under $3,000! Leo says he wouldn't advise buying either of them, as it's unknown just how long that folding plastic screen will last.
Cotton has mostly Apple-based gear at his company, but when he's doing apps he needs an Android device to test and monitor. What should he get? Leo says that Cotton should get a Motorola Moto G6, but don't buy it from Amazon as it'll be filled with bloatware.
Diane is worried that if she has to reinstall the Samsung music player on her Android phone, that she'll lose all 4000 of her songs. Leo says that Android is designed to have music in a single folder accessible by any music app. So she should just use a different app. Leo likes Doubletwist. Can she back it up to her laptop? Leo says DEFINITELY YES! Before she does anything else, she should plug in her phone and drag those songs over to a computer or a backup hard drive. It would also be a good idea to backup her phone to the cloud.
Kevin would like to select and delete multiple emails in Apple Mail on the iPhone. Just tap "edit" and then mark it, move it, or trash it. Leo says that one of the problems with the modern iPhone is that there's no standard user interface like the old Macs. That makes it difficult to do things like this when the UI changes.
Dave needs to know how to stream from his Android phone to his TV. Leo says that the Google Chromecast is the easiest way. And it's $35 for the HD version, $70 for 4K. It's built for Android. A very cool concept.
Doug got a Moto Plus, but realized it doesn't use NFC. Leo says that's because Motorola is strange with its naming conventions. What's NFC good for? Leo says it's an interesting technology designed for passwords, touch to pay, etc
After a few years, Rich needs to get a new battery for his S5 and he can only find used ones. Leo says it sounds like nobody is making them anymore. Beltran and IFixIt both offer new batteries for the Galaxy S5. You can also go to the Samsung Factory Outlet.
Gary has an older Motorola Moto X and he has to root the phone to install Android 9. Is it secure? Leo says yes, all it really means is that you're an administrator. And Google is fine with it. But remember, once you root, you can be your own worst enemy and cause problems. But if you're smart enough to root it, then you're fine. To know how, go to XDADevelopers.org.
Roger bought a "dumb phone" for him and his wife. Leo says he calls them feature phones. Roger says that they didn't know anything about the dumb phone. But when he charges it up it is dead within a day. Leo says that shouldn't happen - feature phones should last days. Leo says that Roger should take them back and ask for one with better battery life. In fact, he shouldn't even have to pay for it.
