After yesterday’s Apple announcement, I’m feeling more and more like I’m not interested in continuing down the line of iPhones. I had very little interest in opening my phone with my fingerprint, and absolutely none in opening it with my face. Even in non-apple smartphones, almost all of the developments I see tend to be features I not only have no interest in, but are usually pretty problematic privacy-wise.
Is there another way to go that doesn’t feel so wrapped up in privacy issues? I’d like to be able to make calls, send texts, and (though less necessary) do some other smartphone-y things like check my email, look at maps, and access the internet. I have a lightphone and love it, but that obviously doesn’t check all the “smart” boxes as it’s just a literal phone.
I keep thinking there must be a thing out there for people like me, but maybe there are less and less people like me? Any ideas would be welcome.
