This video is how I feel when Apple says I can trust them and that my privacy matters to them.

@glitcher32 unfortunately, I do trust Apple more than Google. Which is why I have an iPhone vs Android. I definitely prefer Linux for desktop, servers, etc.

Curious to hear what your opinion is on Android vs iPhone from a privacy perspective.

Obviously, there are alternatives to Android like Ubuntu Touch, Postmarket OS but you definitely sacrifice functionality, in my opinion.

@bin_sh People who say iPhones can do more than Android are just uneducated in my opinion. Its like saying all Androids have shitty cameras, its not true. Apple is focused on their devices. Android is free and open source meaning any trash chinese place or company like LG can ruin Android reputation for noobs.

But I would trust Apple more than Google.

Apple to me is like owning a parental locked device. You don't have as much freedom. Unless you jailbreak, which is pointless.


@glitcher32 yeah absolutely agreed. I would never suggest that iPhones/iOS have more features than Android. Android definitely can do more in my opinion.

That being said, it’s unfortunate that despite it being open source Android is a total whore for data collection and often comes with a ton of bloat.

I would be interested in trying something like CopperheadOS, though. I just have never had a phone that is compatible.

@bin_sh It's sad how hard it is to simply get some privacy these days. You need a rocket science degree and some rare special phone from India to be able to get a custom OS it seems.

Maybe one day companies will get their heads out of their asses and stop being so money hungry charging us so much money for a device that invades our privacy. Those devices are being charged so much in profit to scam people.

Apple once cared for being affordable, but Steve Jobs died so they took over.
