Welcome to another edition of Android Q&A! As always, we try to answer as many of your great questions as possible. In today’s show, we talk about how to convert your iTunes library to Android, choosing between a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and an iPhone 5s, rumors surrounding the next Nexus 10, and much more. Let’s get started!
What is happening with the next Nexus 10? I want to buy a tablet and don’t want to regret buying something else after which the Nexus 10 2 is released. – Aziz Mehmet
We generally don’t deal with rumor questions on the Android Q&A, because when we deal with rumors, we like to make sure that we have some real, credible substance behind it. So far, all we have is some leaked information from an anonymous, unverified tipster. Interestingly enough, the leaked information has since been pulled by EvLeaks and Pocket Lint. While the reason behind the taking down of this info is unknown, it’s most likely because the leaked images and specs are fake. You can find the very little information we have on an upcoming Nexus 10 here.
Do you know how I can change the default storage to SD card instead of my Device storage? – Benjamin Toh
There’s no reliable way to change the setting to store all your apps on the SD card by default, and this will have to be done for each app individually. What you’ll need to do is go into Settings – Apps, then choose an app, if you’re able to move it, you’ll get the option to “Move to SDcard.” There are some other ways to do it, including some “App2SD” apps on the Google Play Store, but the best methods require root access, and the easiest way to do it is directly from your device Settings.
I want to buy a new phone. Which one is better – the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 or the iPhone 5s? – Moony
If this is going to be your only handheld device, that is, you don’t also have a tablet, that you might want to consider the Galaxy Note 3. The Note 3 is among the best Android devices in the world. It has a giant screen, amazing specs, and a host of stylus functionality and features. You also get the added flexibility of customization with Android devices that you wouldn’t with an iPhone.
That being said, the large size of the Note 3 does take some getting used to, and if you aren’t a fan of the phablet category or already have a tablet, or are just looking for a high-end device with a much smaller display, the iPhone 5s is a good choice. It all comes down to what kind of experience you are looking for, and the Galaxy Note 3 and the iPhone 5s offer completely different experiences.
Can you recommend some iTunes alternatives to listen to music and sync data? – Neoillusion Team KR
The app you should check out is the DoubleTwist Media Player. You will have to download it not just for your Android device, but also for your Mac or Windows PC. Then from within the DoubleTwist program, you can drag an drop your iTunes media files from the computer to your Android device. DoubleTwist is not just a good syncing tool, but also a great media player for both music and podcasts. You can find the DoubleTwist app for Android on the Google Play Store here.
