I can't believe that this application is developed by Google. Even a person who have very less knowledge, he know if he got a unknown device he will have to formate it then should use it. Even to clear pattern/security lock he have to do a factory reset. Once this is done what is the benifit of this application. My suggestion is kindly link device MAC address with current number used in device and when ever a new sim card is inserted in device all information should be updated automatically in this application. I know it is possible that MAC address also can be changed but still it will good up to a level.
Device manager was a great application. I used it several times to help my brother find his phone. But this new one no longer Rings the other phone no matter what I try. And I had to make sure my phone was updated to get it to even find his phone. And to learn all this I had to First find the other phone. Tell me again why this is an update and an improvement?
Pretty dumb that the person who finds or steals my ph can turn off the gps location and the wifi even if the ph is locked. And if there is no wifi in the area where you lose your ph or data, you cannot locate your ph and that gives you no chance of being able to locate your phone becuase your ph will not automatically connect to wifi in 90% outside your home, office or school. At least make it like the icloud lock on iphones thats the phone cannot be used even after it has been restored.
I want to tell the developers that please change the location detection without using location settings since any phone if want to detect won't always be opening location settings. Just try to replace with getting location by SIM uniqueness like IMEI no. or something else. Because i got stuck in a problem when phone was switched off.

My one device is switch off and i have kept it in my room. I was unable to get location or use any of the function. At least last location should b should be shown. It would be much better if am able to locate my lost device even if in my lost device data network is off because it is not compulsory that i always keep my data on. It can be much better if phone is traced by mobile number. Also a navigate system should be added like Google maps so i can easily get a way to reach to my lost device from the place I'm in. I will definitely rate it 5 stars if only one of my demands is fulfill. What this application is now is also awesome but should be more improved
Love the new redesign. About time and it looks beautiful, but the only thing I noticed that's a bit inconsistent is the Google Play Services notification icon for a device being located. It also still says "Android Device Manager" in the notification.
