maybe I should treat myself to a Fairphone at some point? I do need a new phone...

something more “open” & “ethical” could be nice

@ebel
I can only recommend it. I just joined the Fairphone bandwagon last November, but it has been awesome so far.

@maltimore What's the software like on it? It's standard Open Source Android, right?

@ebel I'm not sure to be honest (whether it's completely unmodified open source android).

@maltimore haha. Well I've never run just the FLOSS Android, and I would install many proprietary apps. I'm just curious if, software wise, it's OK or rubbish.

@ebel @maltimore Fairphone runs Android, as this page states, for example: https://shop.fairphone.com/en/fairphone-3-plus

In what concerns openness and ethicality, I plan to treat myself to a Pinephone: https://store.pine64.org/product/pinephone-community-edition-postmarketos-with-convergence-package-limited-edition-linux-smartphone/

The goal of the project is to build a phone with a relatively open architecture, really capable of running Linux, and not limited to running Android.
