Carl wants to get a tablet to put his music on, and also download sheet music. Leo recommends the iPad because its the only tablet that has iTunes, and there are a lot more music apps available on iPad. There will be a new iPad coming in October, so if he can wait a couple months, that would be best.
If he wants to get an Android tablet, there is a way he could easily get his music on it. If he uses Double Twist on his computer and on the tablet, his music will sync up.
Brian has had to replace his iPhone 5 five times and is thinking of switching to the Motorola Moto X. Leo says that the Moto X is a great introduction to the Android world because it's a pure Google Android experience without a lot over extras or overlays. The screen is roughly the same, though slightly larger, than the iPhone. It even has similar Siri functions with Google Now.
Jennifer doesn't have a smartphone, yet she's paying $80 a month! Leo suggests going to Verizon and getting a cheaper plan. Jennifer is due for a new phone though, so she's considering upgrading to a smartphone. She's never been an Apple user, having only used Windows on her computer. She's wondering if Android would be better for her, but there are so many options. There always seems to be something new. She's a professor at a community college and she doesn't want to look too "uncool." So she needs to get up to speed.
Paul has a Samsung Galaxy S3 and wants to enjoy all the apps her friends have, but is concerned about privacy. Leo says that while apps have access to things on her phone, it doesn't mean that it does anything with her personal details. Apps need access to certain parts of her phone to simply work. Unfortunately, it's not set up to be "granular" or specific with what things an app can or cannot have access to.
Pat wants to replace her Verizon HTC Thunderbolt and is thinking about the Galaxy S4 or the new Motorola Moto X. Leo says that while the Galaxy S4 is the best selling smartphone by far, Leo's not much of a fan of the Galaxy S4. It's really junked up with a lot of Samsung stuff she'll never use like watching where her eyes are looking.
The Moto-X is going to be "the" phone. It fits better in the hand, and Google Now is great. The camera is also very fast. Verizon won't get it for a few weeks, though.
Gary has a Google Nexus 7 but he's having issues when he searches with "inconsistent UID" errors. He's been told to wipe his data and restore, and it should go away. Leo says that's probably the best option. He's also having issues watching Hulu with it. Leo says that Hulu blocks mobile browsers.
Robert is a geek and is looking for a smartphone. Leo says there is no "best phone" out there, and it really depends on how he plans to use it. Leo says that the Nokia 1020 has the best camera with 41mp, but it's a fairly entry level smartphone in terms of the operating system. Since Robert is into Linux, the Android platform may be more attractive, particularly the Google Nexus 4, which he can root and put different flavors of Android on it.
Mike wants to go with a "pay as you go" carrier like Ting, and is wondering about the phones available. Not all of them are running the latest version of Android, and one he's looking at in particular is running Gingerbread. Is it OK to get a phone with an older operating system?
Leo has the new Google Motorola Moto X phone, and he's really fascinated by the always-on feature of Google Now. This enables him to talk to his phone and find out just about anything he needs. Some are worried about privacy, but it supposedly doesn't transmit data until the user says "OK Google Now."
