stores from theft of the microsd card or loss of the device (which
eventually shuts down for lack of power, or too many login password
The password lock protects the phone content if stolen while booted.

Is there a difference to iphones? I mean, why wanted the US-American

Get ES File Explorer (free Android app) and transfer files by Wi-Fi. Samba, sftp, NFC,.
Power full, but slightly obtuse interface.
