    In this regard, iPhones appear to be more secure, a tangible feature.
    Seems odd. Accounts can get hacked, I'm not sure the phone can be - unless you download something malicious first. The only thing I absolutely refuse to do is save credit card details onto any phone or linked account. I've never had any security problems in over a decade of Android phone use.

    same here. I also make sure I am on a secure network or over cellular. I do not trust wide open wifi for any transactions.

    I use practically laptop only. It is my workhorse. Simplified my phone down by deleting apps, making it just a basic phone (with Netlfix and Spotify for when I'm travelling).
    Also I do carry a journal with me most of the time to think things out like I used to on a planner or something like that—I find it’s helped my thought process to see it on paper as well. Pretty cool!
