Listener Questions

  • Question from Jason – He just switched from a contract Verizon phone to a pre-paid Verizon phone (Nexus E).  He wanted to know the differences between the prepaid phones (cheaper) to the flagship phones.  We feel that for basic uses, the prepaid phone will be plenty for anyone.  If you are going to be doing a lot of gaming or specialized apps that require a lot of power, or wanting 4K video you may want a high-end flagship phone.  Jason paid $60 for his Nexus E and that is a great deal.
  • Jason also asked about where to find cases for these basic phones.  These are hard to find in the stores.  Going to the internet (like Amazon) would be the best bet.
  • Jason asked about antivirus for Android smartphones.  There are a lot of choices.  Bruce recommends TrendMicro or Bitdefender.
