Subject: [gentoo-user] Accessing a Samsung phone and it's data.

1 Howdy,
3 I've mentioned before that I used a Motorola Razr cell phone, ancient as
4 it is.  Well, the USB port wore out and it was hard to get it to charge
5 up the battery.  Finally, I got tired of having to fiddle with it to get
6 it to charge so I bought a Samsung Galaxy J2, Dash version.  Up under
7 the battery it says J260A.  I did some googling and found some software
8 that says it will allow me to access the data on it.  I'm mostly wanting
9 to access the SD card but would also like to be able to access other
10 things such as contacts, calendar etc.  This is what I installed: 
11 sys-fs/android-file-transfer-linux  While I can access some things, it
12 seems not to list anything useful.  Most directories are empty which is
13 sort of hard to believe. 
15 Is there other software that I can't find that allows this to be done? 
16 GUI would be nice but I suspect if I can figure out what to use, a
17 regular file manager will be used. 
19 While here, is there a website that lists all the android type phones,
20 Samsung brand would be good, and compares them?  At some point I may
21 upgrade but am having trouble finding out what has what and which is
22 actually better.  When I'm trying to pick a CPU, I can find websites
23 that list CPUs by power, L1 cache and a whole host of other things but I
24 can't find one for cell phones.  Maybe my google terms aren't quite right. 
26 By the way, even tho it is a huge leap, kinda liking the new phone. 
27 Much easier to text and I have a signal inside where the old Razr didn't. 
29 Thanks much for any pointers.
