i'm weaning myself off amazon (closed my personal AWS today, trying to move off amazon.com, so next will be google. internet friends, what should i do about mobile? switching to apple products is not a good solution. last time i did alt-android was cyanogenmod.
cm 7, to be exact. so i'm many years out of date, i have no idea how the cool kids de-google these days without just jumping over to another slightly less evil megacorp.
is ubuntu phone still around? what about jolla/sailfish? i've also heard about replicant, lineage, something based on alpine (which sounds really awesome), and i guess purism has a thing (but i don't love purism, they refuse to ban nazis from their social platforms). what does a person wanting to reduce dependence on major (and majorly evil) corporations do about mobile in 2019?
anyway if anyone has ideas on how i can de-google my mobile computing life ("give money to apple instead" is not a valid idea), let me know!
@zacanger could wait a few months on the pinephone, it should support postmarket & plasma mobile
@thurloat i didn't know they were making a phone now, that might be a seriously nice option!
@zacanger if all goes well, i plan on getting the phone an pinebook pro.
hoping for a decent launch
