Does anyone have any advice they would give… for someone who just wants a smart enough phone, usable in the US now, that isn’t locked to apple or android? Even any android phone (with a replaceable battery?)… that can run with root? (Keeping my data from being a product). Just looking for freedom. And a good battery life. Even if it is overpriced… and ideally could work on Verizon.
Phone with text and internet. Ideally emulates Android… my VZW 5S cannot be rooted. So if I need to buy a phone before (April?)… What phone would give me some root access and allow a custom OS? (Last I looked sailfish is not an option)
I know how to use Odin and replace an OS, provided the phone bootloader isn’t locked.
Not expecting a perfect solution… but bet i coukd make a few steps in the right direction. Won’t be super private, but will be an improvement.
I welcome any ideas, or referrals to other pages or topics. Thank you.
Thanks for any insight.
