Last week, we reported that Trump had somewhat begrudgingly trading his beloved Android phone in for something more secure.
In an article detailing his new daily routine at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, the paper notes that trump spends some of his evenings away from Melania and Barron sitting in front of the TV with “his old, unsecured Android phone,” a fact that has apparently been the source of protest among some of the president’s aides.
In the lead up to inauguration, trump was reportedly concerned about giving up his device over fears that doing so would cause him to become more isolated after his move from trump Tower, causing him to lose touch with friends.
Now, deep in a story by The New York Times, the same outlet that initially reported on the peaceful transition of handsets, is passing mention of the fact that maybe trump hasn’t given up on old faithful after all.

Trump is apparently still using his unsecured Android phone
Despite having settled into the Oval Office, President Donald Trump is still using his unsecured Android phone, The New York Times reported Wednesday.
In August, data scientist David Robinson investigated the source of Trump’s tweets and determined that different people were posting to Trump’s personal account.
Indeed, a scan of Trump’s recent tweets on his personal account confirms they were posted from an Android device.
Robinson concluded that the tweets that came from an Android device were posted by Trump, while those posted from an iPhone came from his staff.
Trump’s aides are reportedly not happy about their boss’s use of the device, according to the Times.
