"I want an unhackable phone"

If your net worth is less than a half million dollars, and you aren't a power user:

Get an iPhone, keep it updated, set an alphanumeric passphrase. It will cost 6 figures minimum to hack your phone. You aren't that important.


@r000t It irritates me but that seems to be the consensus. Only a few android phones are encrypted and get immediate security updates. But apple phones are expensive and not everyone can afford them.

@Argus For Android, I'd say "This year's Sammy if you're rich, any recent Moto if you aren't"

@r000t @Argus Samsung? Motorola?! Have you seen their update track record recenty?! Pixel phones if you're rich, Android Go if you're not.
