Cheap. Very cheap in comparison to any iphone.

And that is my only consideration. When I need a new device I never even look at Apple stuff. I already know I can't afford it.
But you can get an android phone for less than £100

This is comparing an operating system installed on phones by most manufacturers with the flagship model of one manufacturer. So it's not really a fair comparison. Sure, you can claim that there are cheap Android phones but there are also ones that are just as expensive as an iPhone based on the hardware or even the service provider's data plan. In terms of privacy, stock Android syphons about 10x as much user data as an iPhone though both are effectively spying on you at all times unless you take measures to mitigate it.

I personally use an Android device but I prefer neither a phone that runs Android or iOS. The interests of manufacturers who use that software are hostile to the interests of people who buy the phones and who care about their privacy. Commercial mobile phones are at best a "necessary evil" though the only way you can believe this is if you've bought into the lie.

Both Apple and Google take everything you do and document it, then sell it.

Privacy does not exist on an Android or Apple phone, if you believe in Apples advertising that they "respect your privacy", you better not look into 30% of Apples profits coming from selling your data.

I suggest you get a spyware free phone. Here's one source I'm aware of.

Why do you want to feed the surveillance state? Make them work for it.

Did you know in China if you jaywalk you can get points taken off of your social credit score and lose access to gooberment privileges?
There are people whose score is low enough that they can't get on planes, faster trains, hi speed internet, many things are locked away from them because there social credit score is too low.

If you want to see what the corrupt-ment will do with your data look to China. They already are profiling and gauging you. If you think you don't have a social credit score now in the US or the UK you're a fool.

Several places today like the UK are desperate to implement a "vaccine pass" and it has nothing what so ever to do with your health. Get away from these data harvesters.

Isn't it obvious? One that can have open source software installed. One that isn't loaded with software tracking your every movement. Remove Google and/or Apple OS and it makes no difference.

As a software developer I prefer Android.

More open OS programming API based on known Linux kernel, more pleasant programming language (Java for Android or C/C++ if you want to get to the metal level as opposed to the awful Swift for iPhone). Android lets you install apps that are not on the Play Store (although with a warning) while Apple forces you to use their App Store for everything even desktop apps. This is very bad for free market of app development. I hate Apple with a passion, if there is an anti-christ company out there it sure is Apple. With their forbidden fruit logo with a bite in it and the price of their first computer which was 666$. Also Android phones are generally much cheaper with the exact same features.
