    I guess they're refering to the fact that apple refuses to open the encryption backdoor. That doesn't apply to the phone itself really, that's just how peoples minds work.

    The only true fact is that the iphones are a bit harder to tamper with but that's because apple limits the possibilities to ways the phone might be used, or abused. It doesn't make it more secure in itself. For a normal user those differences doesn't make any sense or matter.

    The major issue that makes a phone not secure is that users have no clue as to what they're doing and install stuff they really don't know anything about.

    I will say I like that Apple have that Icloud locked thing to prevent other people accessing your phone, a friend of ours bought an Iphone on ebay and when it arrived it was locked , they contacted the seller through ebay and the reply took a few days While they waited I spent a good few hours over 2 days trying to find a way around that lock and was completely beaten even with google ... spoke to a local phone shop and they admit they have no way around it at that time

    Might be different now but start of 2017 (ish) I thought it was pretty good

    Samsung all the way here though :)

    I've had Android phones almost exclusively, The only exception was when I got a Blackberry phone many years ago for one of my first phones.

    However, this thread is old enough to have died long ago. :)

    I think answer for this question depends on personal preferences. But, In general, Samsung gives you more features for comparatively low cost and Apple gives limited but quality features in faster performance for higher price. Understand your intentions and preferences. It;s better rather than choosing a device by brand

    I tried Apple, my problem with Apple iPhones is the interface, that and the fact that they receive new features late like you have said.

    Currently still using a Samsung Galaxy S10.

    The biggest issue is that people usually compare iPhones against non flagship devices, Usually flagship Android devices destroy Apple's devices but I like that iPhones usually keep their OS updates for a while.

    I wouldn't buy Apple branded toilet paper if I had a stomach flu.

    I think the title of the thread should have been Apple or Android. There are many other phones using Android than just Samsung. ;)
