So during the years, I claim to have seen a few amount of phone reviews and there is always one thing that have bothered me. When the reviewer say that the X brand version of the OS feels and looks close to the stock android it, it makes me wonder, is it actually possible to have stock Android running on a phone?
I have looked around on the web and found that you can re-flash your phone with the default image that comes with your phone. But that would be the same as just re-installing the OEM version of Windows with their bloated software.
So my question really is; Does anyone have any experience or resources on building your own Android OS and having it deployed on a actual phone(no VM or anything)? Specifically for “non-google” devices such as Samsung, Huawei or LG.
Any answers would be highly appreciated
Perhaps this could be a level1techs video?
