@trwidick said in Brand new phone with UBP ?:
I ask why not android and the specific reasons why your choosing to leave?
I will try to be quick, It was Windows 10, 1903; yeah that one XD, my then laptop, an asus, fell into a blue-dimentional-craphole (excuse my english) and I was not able to install windows again on that laptop without some issue. So I just switched to linux, I mean, I literally could not use win10 on that machine.
In the learning curve, I also got a new understanding of what Open Source really meant, and the value of privacy over lazyness.
So, I just stopped using 'bigtech' stuff, I deleted my facebook, amazon, google accounts and so on.
My last phone, a Nokia, ended up being really annoying, sluggish, bad battery life, etc.
So now I just want a phone that is just a phone, I need nothing more from google or apple, I have no issues with lineage or /e/, they are open source after all, but they are still android-dependant, and that really annoys me.
So I rather put some work into it, and try to port UT, or, I can just use a dumb phone while I wait for whatever it is that @flohack got under the sleeve xD.
Right, so, avoiding android go, thanks for the tip.
