I am getting more and more frustrated with the smart phone experience and I am considering ditching mine altogether and moving towards a life free of Google.
As I was thinking of the apps I actually use I felt like I wouldn’t miss most of them. The capabilities I’d like to keep are the use of a Two Factor Authentication app and a password manager.
I was considering using a custom ROM to remove the bloat from Android and keeping a phone just for that.
Then I remembered Wendell mentioning on the Level1 News a while ago a model of phone that was relatively recent, had a removable battery and had the cellular radio on a separate board.
He mentioned it in the context of removing the board and having a phone that was “offline” for security purposes.
The problem is that I can’t remember what specific phone it was.
Can anyone remember what he was talking about or suggest a phone I could use for this?
Ideally, Android, decent support from the custom ROM community, easy to root, removable battery and the ability to completely remove the radio.
Thanks in advance.
