    The thing is though, all new Android devices usually have bootloaders locked, which needs permission first to unlock. You can apply right now so by the time you get one you have those permissions, once you have an account with permissions, you can unlock any xiaomi device with it every 30 days. https://en.miui.com/unlock/

    The level of security on systems is ever-debatable and conditions ever-changing. Don't trust anyone's claims that a system is secure or more secure than another system. All you can really do is research and come up with your own conclusions.

    Apple's MAC address randomisation is shit. Networks which you are not connected to get a random MAC address. Networks which you have connected to get your real MAC address. It's very easy for shopping centers and Starbucks to track iPhone users. I don't have a source for this point but you can verify this claim in nmap or Wireshark.

    Port 62078 which is only used for iTunes Wi-Fi sync is open and can only be closed by jailbreaking the phone. Someone who has your iPhone's pairing keys can dump your phone or a day 0 exploit can screw you over.

    They have also added DRM to their batteries so if you replace the battery on the iPhone XS, XS Plus, or XR, you will get a message saying that your phone's battery needs a service and it can't display the battery's peak performance capacity or maximum capacity.

    Pretty sure that's by design, as randomised MAC addresses can mess up session and authentication. My Android device works the same way, otherwise I'd have to log in to the public WiFi I use over and over. I know Android let's you view/set whether you randomise or not per known SSID, not sure about iOS though.

    If you want the best of both, spoof your MAC address then change it occasionally.

    Sorry mates, but android has shit controller support, if you like 150~300 heck, even .5 seconds input lag, even wired controllers too, me has S7 with 8 core exynos CPU, and yeah, I can run shit, but can't run a low level tunnel for faster HID driver access... Oooooof

    This is probably the case in the US, not so much in Europe.

    Had an US Verizon Note 3 and bootloader unlock keys weren't being distributed by OEM.

    S7 is pretty opened up these days tho.

    I have heard people suggest this, I did try to use it on me s5 with a DS3, never good enough, such shame. uwu
