Debbie from Roland Heights, CA

Debbie's Samsung Galaxy S4 won't work without being plugged in anymore. Leo says that the Galaxy S4 was one of the last ones that you could replace the battery too, and there are third party batteries from Anker and Aukey that you could buy for it. But Leo says it's pretty old now since the Galaxy S line is up to 10 now. So Leo says it's time Debbie got a new model. She could probably get the S9 for a really good deal. What about the Google Pixel? Leo says it has the best camera on the market, though the screen is better on the Samsung. But nobody does better than Google on the camera.

Millie from Tehachapi, CA

Millie wants to know what the best mobile phone is. Rich says that the four best are the iPhone, the Samsung Galaxy S10, the One Plus, and the Google Pixel 3. Google's Pixel 3 has the best camera for all situations, but that's about where it ends. The iPhone is the best all around, followed by the Samsung Galaxy S10. More likely it comes down to what she really wants to do with it, and Rich recommends asking her friends and family what they have.

Sidip from Orlando, FL

Sidip is a doctor who wants a mini tablet to use with his medical data. He also wants one that will last 24 hours during a shift. Leo says that there are small Android tablets, but they aren't great. The iPad Mini is probably Sidip's best bet. He can import his data into iBooks on the iPad, and have annotation capability. But if he does not want to go iOS, Samsung has a 7" Galaxy Tab Nook that could work. Asus and Acer also make 7" tablets to take a look at. But Leo says the Samsung is probably the best option. He could also go with a mobile phone like Google Pixel 3 or Galaxy S10.
