Google’s Eric Schmidt, he is a man who surely needs no introduction because of his sarcastic and strange statements on the opponents, and obviously for being the ex-CEO of Google. In his success period, Google declared him as the “adult supervisor” and a key player for making Google what it is today. Well today’s statement might shock some of you. He has declared that Android is more secure than iPhone.
The event took place at the Gartner Symposium/ITxpo, where Eric was encountered by a suggestion that the Google’s Android mobile operating system is not secure enough, every eye on the stage was expecting a strange answer from Eric, and he, without any hesitation followed his tradition and once again gave an answer, which amazed everyone.
The question was asked by an analyst of Gartner, named as David Will. David placed a really straight question, which was:
“If you polled many people in this audience they would say Google Android is not their principal platform… When you say Android, people say, wait a minute, Android is not secure.”
And he instantly replied:
“Not secure? It’s more secure than the iPhone.”
In return to his reply, audience giggled but this was not something which Eric was expecting. Without wasting a single second, he switched the point and said that Android has more than 1 billion users, which means it is secured enough and it’s security is tested by its own users.
When it comes to the question that ‘is Android more secured than the iPhone?’ So undoubtedly, the answer is NO, because most of the critics believe that iOS is far more safe and secured than Android. This security is because every single app in the App Store is analysed by the company itself and above all, side-loading is strictly dismissed by Apple.
Despite the fact that iOS is more secure than Android, one can’t defy the fact that such a comical behavior from Google’s Executive Chairman is always something strange yet funny.
So, now it’s your turn to decide which platform is more secured, iOS or Android? Choice is yours. Drop a comment below.
