However, if you’re worried about mobile viruses and hackers, the iPhone still reigns as the best smartphone, and Apple does the best job of providing a slick overall users experience.
Whether you go with an iPhone or an Android smartphone, you’re likely to stay with that platform for a while (especially once you begin investing in apps) so it pays to look closely at both and make an informed decision.
