Why do I prefer oppo and Xiaomi over Samsung and apple?
Now, I know that Apple and Samsung fanboys are gonna get all gitty up on their horses with rifles in their hands and run towards me, but; let me explain.
Apple and Samsung are two of the largest smartphone/ IoT companies in the world, and I appreciate that but; here’s the catch though: they have this one issue that adds up into multiple issues, as aforementioned in my first blog: https://sheikhmunir2029.medium.com/do-we-get-optimal-privacy-in-smartphones-54b8887aabfd
which explains the issue at hand, these companies lack a very specific feature in their software and devices that is app lock, hide app, and file safe. these features are nowadays extremely important for people of all ages.
Although, you might say that Samsung has a secure folder and I agree! but, going in and out of a secure folder except if you are using a flagship phone is a hassle, and don’t even get me started over importing and exporting the files you receive through WhatsApp and other sources.
Look! all I am saying is that these features are important; especially, when it comes to your privacy, you have to protect your images, files, and documentation from unwanted guests aka the people you don't want seeing your images, files, and documentation. The unavailability of the above-mentioned features makes all of this data at risk of being exposed or even worse; leaked to the wrong person by the wrong person.
All in all, what I am trying to say is that Apple and Samsung are both amazing companies. Hell! if they didn’t lack these features I would have switched to one of them.
However, all is not lost; maybe somehow we can get this message through that we need these features; rather, we want these features. to secure our privacy even from the threats we expect little from. spoiler! they do arrive.
And when they do! it’s bad news for all of your data and in case you didn’t know that’s how leaks happen!
Conclusively, the significance of having such features is not to be ignored, I know! we probably don’t really care about our friends viewing our pictures and we probably trust them. But, ask yourself this; is it worth it to get my pictures or data or documents accidentally viewed by the wrong person?. Because that picture file or document is one tap away from being exposed.
