I am trying to help my son choose the best smart phone that can be protected by CE the strictest and easiest. I have seen several issues with both. So which one is more recommended with CE, Apple or Android?

Oops, I think I found the answer from about 3 months ago. Looks to be Apple iphone as the preferred product for CE? Please feel free to add additional opinions and options! TIA!

Apple is definitely safer. Switched from Android to an iPhone for this very reason. Make sure to turn on restrictions, disable installing apps, disable Safari, disable the News app, disable web searches from Siri, and don't allow your son to get ANY apps that you're not one hundred percent sure have no way to get to a web browser. All Google apps (Gmail, Google Maps, YouTube, etc.) have built in web browsers that would allow your son to access any pornographic content he wants without it being blocked or showing up on his CE report. Dropbox, My Fitness Pal, even the YouVersion Bible app all are similarly unsafe. Can't emphasize enough - stick to just the apps the iPhone comes only if you want to be sure your son is safe.
