Android vs iPhone Security And Privacy :


When it comes to the security and privacy of users, Apple is the winner because they are always conscious of their reputation. Apple rarely shares the personal data of its users with third parties.

Apple has always had a very high price that is sometimes considered a phone for the rich. Their price ranges from $1,000, $1,100, $700, $400 etc

There are no two ways about it, android is very affordable.

Android’s battery lasts more, it also has a fast charge.
