Sam just upgraded to a Samsung Galaxy S Blaze via T-Mobile. He is thinking about trading it in for the iPhone, but is wondering if it's worth making the switch. Leo says that it depends on how much Sam wants an iPhone. The Blaze doesn't have a lot of storage (16GB) but he can put a microSD card in it. The iPhone he would get from T-Mobile is also a 16GB, but he wouldn't be able to expand that. However, with T-Mobile he'd get unlimited data so he may not need much storage.
David believes that accessibility of the Android OS has surpassed the iPhone. David is 16 and blind and he's found that his Android phone gets updated far more often than his old iPhone, Accessibility-wise, that's been really helpful. Also, because it's a separate application, it gets upgraded even more often.
Cindy was given a Verizon iPhone 4S, and wants to know if she can use it on T-Mobile. She's been told she can pay to swap the chip out. Leo says no, that won't work. T-Mobile is a GSM based carrier, and Verizon is CDMA. The iPhone 5 actually does have both GSM and CDMA radios, so it would be able to work on T-Mobile.
Brian is looking to upgrade his cellphone. He's thinking about the Samsung Galaxy SIV, but he likes Siri on the iPhone.
Leo says that Google's voice recognition is now better than Siri. It's more reliable and robust. There's also the HTC One which is a good phone to consider. So getting an iPhone for Siri isn't a good idea.
Stan is upgrading his Blackberry phone and wants to know which smartphone to get. Leo says to not count out the Blackberry Q10 through T-Mobile. It'll be like the new Z10, but with a keyboard. If he's used to Blackberry's ecosystem, it'll certainly be a good upgrade. Will they use the "pearl" trackball? Leo says no, Blackberry has discontinued that. Stan liked the pearl though for running through menus quickly.
Scott just got a new iPhone 5 and found out he can't use it without iTunes 11 -- he would have to update his OS as well! Leo says that's true, but Apple handles sync over the air now, so he doesn't really have to sync directly. He can use iCloud and iTunes Match, if he's a subscriber of it, to sync his music. He can also sync via Google Services.
Don really likes SpeakEvents for those looking for a better narrator on the iPhone. This does require jailbreaking the iPhone first, however, since Apple doesn't give third party programs access to do this.
Joe wants to know if the iPhone supports Near Field Communications (NFC). Leo says it doesn't. At best, it has Bluetooth. Even though NFC supports Bluetooth, the iPhone doesn't support NFC.
