I'm talking about people, and not US government and not US americans, I'm talking about humans and i don't care about what you and your governments say, think and do.

I don't think google is going to use any data as a political advantage... Huawei and ZTE would/could.

If not let me explain why you're making a sugarloaf out of yourself. Apple is the most secure company in terms of phones and software. It auto encrypts itself to a point when not even the FBI can get into it.

To also add to the solid security if you do attempt to hack you way into an Idevice it will simply delete all saved data.

How do we know this? The shooter in Las vegas last year had an iphone and they(The FBI) couldn't get into the phone. Instead, they asked apple to forcefully unlock it and they said no for the reason of security. Basically if they unlocked the phone for the FBI, they breach their terms of conditions in which every Apple user agrees to when they start up their device for the first time.

Ooof, this took a lot longer than I wanted to invest my time in. However debunking your hate with logic and unbias was/is satisfying.

Dr. Chillo, 16 Aug 2018US Officials say Huawei and ZTE are not secure, it means Huawei ... more.....

Did you read the Article at all?

It states that because ZTE messed up, and the relations of China are at an all time low that from now on all US officials are not allowed to use one as those brands specifically are from China and handle information which due to relations pose a risk to the US and it's personal security/interests.

Joe, 15 Aug 2018IIRC Xi Jinping (The president of China) uses a ZTE Axon 7 as hi... moreIf true, then it would be much easier for him to propose the Apple ban.

US Officials say Huawei and ZTE are not secure, it means Huawei and ZTE are most secure and they don't want to give any information to US governments. So if you want really your data safe and away from US government or any others buy yourself a Huawei or ZTE.

Crackling Doom, 14 Aug 2018Apparently you don't. Only an totalitarian government disallows ... moreSure... let's concentrate all power (economic, legislative, executive and judicial) under a single "for the people" rule and pretend that is not, in nature, the very definition of a totalitarianism.
