I'm totally behind this in theory, but I don't pay more than $100 for a phone. https://puri.sm/products/librem-5/
@moondoggy I outright "bought" my galaxy s8 recently, and can't figure out why it routinely decides to adjust my settings to "optimize" battery life. I mean, I know it's probably just a switch in there, but for goodness sakes... leave the wifi on! I can see the draw of an open source smartphone too, even at that price.
@moondoggy but that's the thing, if my phone feels free to change my wifi settings without asking me, what data is it sharing without asking me? I mean, I already openly sell my location history to google for money, (Google Opinion Rewards App) Which is funny given that I'm a bit paranoid, heck I even take pills for it, but I KNOW I'm selling that information. With the rest of the phone, I've got no clue, it's kinda scary.
@epl692 now I can see what you mean. And you can be both paranoid and correct at the same time. Turns out the FBI *was* spying on Hemingway.
