Funny, but I'd say yes. At least if you buy an Android phone your choices of free software is much larger and you have a chance to install an Android distro without Big Tech.

I'd advice people to buy a device supported by LineageOS and allow you to unlock the bootloader. The ability to unlock the bootloader should be added as a requirement to some consumer EU legislation imo.

Kind Regards the guy who doesn't use smartphones and survived.

@aral like app this and app that, and everyone is now attention deficiet and braindead, and now you need these apps to even live a life which is a terrible idea
