    Hi,

    I currently own a Pixel 2 and my phone prior to this was a much loved OnePlus 5T which I decided to get rid of due to the security / privacy concerns that were reported.
    I like to have my banking and email apps on my phone and being very security conscious I decided that I would trust a Google phone over any other as it comes with the added peace of mind of monthly security updates and of course, the Google name which you can trust (right?)
    Going to the Pixel from my 5T was a massive compromise for me as dual sim and running dual apps built into the Oxygen OS like WhatsApp and Skype were very important for me.

    I like to replace my handsets when I get bored and the Pixel 2, although very new, is quite boring.
    So the burning question, I would love to return to a dual sim phone and I am considering the OnePlus6 (not the 6T due to the omission of the notification LED!) or the Huawei P20. Are these phones just as safe to use as a Pixel or would it be best not to put banking apps and sensitive files on these phones?
    I would even consider a dual sim option with another OS which offers more security such as Lineage OS but I know that the OS is not available for all phones. I have also heard the OnePlus has joined project treble which means they will get faster updates in the future (if I am right?)

    Finally, as I would prefer a phone with decent security should I consider the Pixel 3 with its new Titan Chip which is supposed to offer more security? If so, I would then need to look for a virtual number or VOIP solution for a second line for incoming/outgoing business calls.

    Lots of questions I know but I would love to hear your thoughts on this also any other recommendations.

    BIG Thanks in advance...
