Why your phone is not connecting to PC? The first reason could be version of the app. Just check google store for updates. In my case it was the old version of mobile phone app the only one reason I found when I visited the app page to add my review. You can not add your review if you have old version and there is updated version of the app. After updating it, I thought to try connecting once again then add my review there.
