Why can't I connect my phone to Wi-Fi?

OnePlus 3

Episode 1399

Jasper from Denmark

Jasper is having a hard time connecting his OnePlus phone to Wi-Fi, and the apps time out. Leo says that if it only happens at home, it may not be his phone. He should go connect to a different Wi-Fi hotspot and see if it's happening. If it connects OK, then it may be that his router is having trouble with his phone. Sometimes that happens and it requires a reboot of the router. Leo also says how he holds his phone can also affect how it receives a signal on the OnePlus. That may or may not be contributing to it.

On top of that, her S5 was one of the worst phones Samsung has ever made.

Mike from Maine

Mike is still looking to choose a phone that can keep him secure and protect his privacy. He's looking at the 2nd generation Motorola Moto X and the Moto G. There's also the One Plus X. Leo says that all three of them are great phones. The Moto X is bigger and has a nicer resolution, but at the cost of battery life. The OnePlus gets great battery life, although the new OnePlus Two doesn't have the greatest screen. The Moto G is good, but pricey. The OnePlus X may be his best option.

The makers of the OnePlus One Android smartphone have cancelled a controversial campaign in which it asked women to submit photos of themselves with the OnePlus One logo on them. The photos were to be judged by staff, and invites would be given to the top 50 women. The invite doesn't even get you a phone, however -- it only allows you to buy a phone at full price.
