What kind of smartphone is the US President using?

It’s a surprise that Donald Trump has been using an old smartphone which was released for a long time ago and was no longer supported by the producer.

The new president of USA – Donald Trump is said not to be a big fan of technology. The evidence is that he used to implement many tax policies which prevented technology from developing smoothly. Because of the above reason, it is easy to understand why his smartphone seems to be much older than which a President should use. It is Samsung Galaxy S3 which we are talking about. It was first released in 2012 and last Android-updated in 2015. In fact, using an old smartphone is not a big deal with everyone; however, if the user is the US President, it is possible that a security issue can happen.

According to experts, this Galaxy S3 is a real threat because hackers can control it to spy upon the Whitehouse’s movements. Trump’s counselors have been trying to persuade him to use another phone but he still consistently refused.

The old President, Obama, used to insist on using a quite old BlackBerry in spite of many advices from the Counselor Council. Because of his consistence, experts had to strengthen the security for his phone by disabling the function of listening to music, sending/ receiving message, calling and even taking photos.
