  1. I don’t seem to have networking options 🙁

  2. Every article I read on this is no help. I have Android 6.0.—. I have a Samsung Note 4. When I plug my phone into my laptop it defaults to TRANSFER FILES. Not the charging option. I turn on DEVELOPER OPTIONS and set the default USB action to CHARGING. It makes NO DIFFERENCE. The phone always defaults to TRANSFER FILES.

  3. I want to upgrade my system on my ASUS phone and I am not very tech-savy. How do I do that?
