If you're wondering if TVs are secure, they are! Just don't connect them to the internet! It sounds simple, but the temptation can be real for those who want to use apps to go online. If you keep the television offline, it can't secretly watch you (assuming the company behind it is shady). Get an Apple TV or Roku device, which are kept up to date. If your TV gets infected, the issue can even bleed into your network...which would be a huge problem.
After ordering it and waiting 10 days with no sign of the Samsung Galaxy Flip Phone, Leo decided to cancel the order. By the time he would have gotten it, the world would have moved on as other reviews are now out. So he decided to save $1600. Leo also thinks that everyone is getting sick of the mobile phone merry go round, where a new mobile phone comes out every six months.
Kathryn has her deceased son's Samsung Galaxy Tab tablet and she wants to get it unlocked. Leo says to contact the carrier that the tablet was bought from and see if they can unlock it. They may need to require proof of death, but that's her best bet. Another possibility is Samsung's KEYS software for Windows. You could perhaps hook the tablet up and extract the information. But you may need to unlock it first.
Chef Guy wants to know if the pure Android experience on a mobile phone is really better than what you get with Samsung's Touchwiz overlay. Leo says that the pure Google Android experience is better, but there are some things that Samsung adds, like their hearing test option, can be beneficial. But for every one of those, there's a Bixby, which is of no help whatsoever. Leo really likes Google's Pixel 4. Unfortunately, 128GB is the max storage and it doesn't come with an external media option.
Chris has a Samsung Galaxy 9S and wants to know if the LTE watch is coming out soon. Leo says that the Apple Watch does it (at $10 a month). The new Samsung Watch that just came out may be coming soon. But it may be that Samsung has decided it's not worth the extra cost. All watch companies are having issues selling smartwatches, except for Apple. The other problem may be that your carrier doesn't support it. But Verizon has sold them in the past, so talk to someone at the Verizon store.
Sometimes it can be confusing when acronyms are nearly identical. It would be in consumers' best interest to learn the difference between OLED and QLED before browsing for new TVs. OLED stands for "organic light-emitting diode" while QLED stands for "Quantum Dot LED" (according to Samsung). Quantum dots are extremely small semiconductors that backlight a Liquid Crystal Display. Many people think "QLED" was a label intentionally chosen to look similar to "OLED", despite not being the same technology.
The phone is out now, in an inopportune time, with the new iPhone coming out in a few weeks, and Google's Pixl 4 coming soon. The Note 10+ has 12-hour battery life, and a three-lens camera - Telephoto, Medium, and very wide angle. It also has a lidar camera called "Time of Flight" that bounces radar off it to create a 3D model or image.
What makes the Note 10 more interesting is the small stylus to write up notes with. You can even create the notes with the phone turned off. And it does a great job with handwriting recognition. It's almost flawless.
Samsung announced the Galaxy Note 10 this week. And it's huge. It's "notch" is much smaller, now more of a dot, and the headphone jack is officially missing. So Samsung has quietly removed any videos from their YouTube channels mocking Apple for the same thing. They say it gives them more room for a larger battery. Also missing is the Bixby button, which is officially dead. Price for the Note 10 - $1200. The 5G version is another $200, but Leo says don't bother. 5G isn't available everywhere yet, and it will drain your battery much faster than LTE. Right now, 5G is nothing but hype.
Jack uses a Samsung Note Android phone and he used to be able to do a list view of all the running apps. But now it's changed to a tiny screenshot. How can he change it back? Leo says that Google changed the way to display it, and it's at the system level in their launcher, and so there may not be a way to roll that back. But since Jack has a Samsung phone, he can use the Samsung app called GOOD LOCK in the Samsung Store and you can change it back using the Task Changer feature.
Sal wants a small tablet for displaying photos. Leo says that iPads are always the best tablets to get; far superior to Android tablets. An iPad Mini would work as well. In fact, Google has given up on tablet development. That's a clear sign.
