@kev good for you man, whatever works.
Personally I try to use my computer instead of my phone whenever possible. I just buy a second hand Android device with LineageOS-support, flash it, use F-Droid for the apps I need and call it a day. As a backup just in case I have Aurora Store if I would ever need a proprietary app, but at the moment I do not. If I had to use stock Android with Play Services I would choose iPhone any day.
@mllepogany that's a good way of doing it - you're not too reliant on your mobile then either.
I don't have the time or inclination to install and manage custom roms on my phone. I just want to switch it on and have it work. Which, as you said, is why I went with iOS. 🙂
@jawsh agreed, as long as you're running an official build it's very stable and hassle free after it's set up
@mllepogany @kev I have a similar approach. I have an iPhone for work and it's not a walled garden; there are lots of proprietary tracker-filled apps to choose from. I would recommend it over Android for that type of usage. The selection of free software on iOS is pretty bad though. I have an old device with #LineageOS and #FDroid for that.
