I see #OnePlus is pushing down an unwanted app to my #OnePlus6T with their latest update.. Let's see if I can remove it. If not, then I'm pretty much done with OnePlus for future #Android phone purchases. 🙅🏻‍♂️ #crapware

@claudiom Good luck finding another major brand that doesn't rely on installing bloatware on any "smart" device (phone, tablet, notebook, TV, car...)!

To me it seems like they "have" to do it, because they don't earn anything from pure hardware sells alone.

When it comes to phones, the only option you have is (unless you don't want to unlock BL and root) going with an offside brand like Fairphone, Shiftphone or for something completely different like Pinephone or Librem.

@RAPXT Good thing I already have a PinePhone, but it really is far from usable in my opinion beyond fringe use.

There are the Android ROMs like /e/ and LOS, so those are options down the road for my 6T. That being said, @garrett mentioned that support in the mainline kernel for the 6T exists now, which is a good thing.


@claudiom @garrett Yep, when it comes to usability there's (at least imho) nothing that can compare with android. Which is of no surprise considering that it is developed for over 10 years.

But still I'd like to see more competition in the mobile os department. Now all we really have is android and iOS. I feel if we'd had more (big) competitors that would also lead to more innovation.
