I would like a smartphone which does not spy on me. Can you help me?
I need a reasonably recent smartphone, because I would like to have a decent camera. But I want a smartphone which does not spy on me. I would like to be able to keep my data local (contacts, calendar, etc…). I would like to be able to make and restore a backup to my own server.
I live in Europe, so I buy my phone without a contract.
The functions I use are: phone, Email, calendar, contacts, sms, photographs, maps, browser. I don’t need games. Blocking advertising would be a plus.
I don’t intend to pay with my smartphone or use it as public transport ticket.
I could install an alternative operating system if needed, but I would not like to have to register as a developer or use windows. I have a linux machine and a mac.
