Stacey says that when she's driving, her Samsung S5 phone starts to overheat, and her battery life has started to get really bad as well. Leo says that using the phone all the time, even while it's plugged in, will cause it to work harder. Phones are higher performing these days, while battery life has been steadily dropping. On top of that, her S5 was one of the worst phones Samsung has ever made.
Louie is thinking about getting the Motorola Moto Z Play. Leo says that it's an interesting concept where Motorola will be adding new features and modules over the next few years including upgraded speakers, better cameras, etc. It's a cool phone. The built-in camera isn't all that great, but it has a lot of promise.
Matthew used to have a MOTOACTV smart watch and he said it was the greatest smart watch he ever had. Leo says it's pretty large, but looks to have plenty of capabilities. The Nixon Mission Android Wear watch is a pretty good option as well.
Sheryl wants to replace her old Razr Maxx Android smartphone. What should she get? Leo says that if she's happy with Motorola, then she can stick with it. Leo recommends the Moto G4. It's between $150 and $200 and Leo says it's a fantastic upgrade. It's well made, and has a good camera. She should just get as much storage as she can.
BJ wants to know how the Motorola Moto X Pure stacks up against the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. Leo says that the Moto X Pure has a nice screen and a great pure Google experience. The Galaxy S6 Edge has a much nicer screen, but he doesn't like Samsung's TouchWiz overlay. BJ also hates the Motorola tech support. Leo says that Samsung's isn't much better and both expect the carrier to support it.
BJ has been using the same mobile phone for eight years and everyone says he needs a new Android phone. Is the Motorola Moto X a good choice? Leo says the Moto X is a good phone, and it's about to be updated. But it's got battery life issues.
Mike is going to get his first smart phone through Cricket. What does Leo think of the Motorola Moto-E? Leo likes the Moto E. It's a great phone for just $75 out the door. The screen is a bit low res, but it's a great choice.
Carl has a Motorola Moto 360 watch. Leo says it's the best smartwatch out there to date. But Carl says it won't automatically turn on when he puts his watch up to read it. Leo says to turn on "ambient display" in the settings. The Moto 360 will still have enough battery life to last throughout the day.
Mike got a Droid Turbo, but he can't work Internet and be on a call at the same time. Leo says that's one of the issues with the Turbo since it has only one antenna. You can't. But Verizon may be changing that in the coming months as Verizon moves to VoiceOver LTE (VOLTE). When it does, an upgrade will fix the problem. But only if VOLTE is supported in your market.
