Re: flashlight apps, anyone?
@SachinEE: Flashier technology tends to get popular among hackers. This fingerprint tech on the iPhone was one such. If I was a hacker I would take it as a challenge to break through something that opens with biometry.

Re: Android Lover
@Vishal: Flexibility is the thing that has caused big trouble with security. Android has plenty security, the only bottleneck for android is that when connected to a network, a phone won't be able to handle DOS attacks and spyware attacks simultaneously. I prefer blackberry because they have the strongest security, followed closely by iOS and Windows and then Android. I don't know anything about the security in the Mozilla OS.

I personally prefer Android. May be its because of the flexibility it provides, or may be because i was lucky enough to stay away from any security attacks. But my personal affection is towards Android.

Re: flashlight apps, anyone?
Well everyone knows iOS has a better security however I think sometimes this has backfired becuase look at the number of times their phones got hacked, even the fingerprint scanner itself.

It's pretty clear that the barrier for entry into the Android app market is pretty low given the proliferation of spyware in nearly every flashlight app available on Android... whereas Apple has consistently kept a high level of scrutiny on developers submitting apps to their own App store. Hands down: iOS is the winner when it comes to security.
