Jeff is ready to upgrade from his old Motorola Moto e4 plus. Leo says that the new Moto's are great. The Google Pixel 5a/5g is on sale and the Pixel 6 comes out next month. Leo likes both. But the Motos won't have wireless charging like the Pixel 6 will. The Pixel 5a/5g camera is excellent, the same as the Pixel 4. And in a year, the Pixel 6a will come out. Leo says to go with the Pixel 5a/5g. Check out our Hands-On Technology review: we call it awesomely unexciting!

Mike is an AT&T customer and he's getting a text that his Samsung P850 phone won't be supported soon, due to 5G. But they aren't turning off 4G/LTE. So what gives? Leo says that AT&T isn't being very clear. The plan is to turn off 3G towers, so if your phone supports 3G, then that won't be available to you. But Mike's phone should work on 4G. But if not, he'll need to upgrade. What should he get that isn't too expensive? Leo is a fan of the Motorola Moto G9, so take a look at the G9 Power series.
Mark has a Google Pixel XL where there are no more updates, and the battery is dying. Is the Pixel 4a a good economical alternative? What about a larger screen? Leo says the Motorola Moto G9 offers a pure Android experience at an affordable Mid-Range price. It also has a great battery. But it's taller than it is wide. There's also a new Moto G Power that has a 6 1/2 inch screen. And the Motorola One.
Ed has a Motorola Moto G6 and wants to know why it's not as bright as the iPhone. Leo says that the iPhone uses an OLED screen, making it brighter versus an LCD screen like the Moto G6. Also the speakers aren't as loud. Leo says that the recently Moto G9 has several updates. It's a very clean Android experience. It also has a headphone jack, which is becoming very scarce in mobile phone design. So check out the G9 Power. It's got the biggest battery in class, but it only has one speaker, so it isn't stereo. For that, you want to get the G8 Power.
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.
