The Android's greatest strength is it's open sourcing. That's also it's greatest weakness. It's so easy to hack wirelessly or otherwise. When you upgrade and want to trade it in, following the manufacturers instructions to wipe the device clean has been proven to not work; information can still be pulled/found on the device. Hence my comment about taking a hammer to it to fully secure it.

Apple anything is proprietary and therefore much more secure.
