    "iPhone XS Max is arguably the best secure phone for privacy nuts. You can always trust Apple for keeping your phone running on the latest software, the ultimate downfall of Android users, and that is why this phone isn't as susceptible to cyber threats. And you absolutely cannot open an iPhone XS Max if it's not yours because of Face ID. You can have a twin and you can be identical down to the last mole and he will not be able to open your iPhone, I can guarantee that. Plus it's pretty! :-)"
