    It'd be possible to find out if the collected data is manually reviewed, if the spam needs to inspected by an actual person to identify as such. If they'd filter it out, they'd give out how they handle their data. If it's not as stated in T&C, *ka-ching* blackmail time. :D

    I usually settle for one of the flagships from the previous generation, then root it to get rid of the bundled crapware and customize it according to my own preferences. At the moment I have a cheap moto G-series phone because it was the cheapest phone with a decent camera, dual sim and sd card slot back when I was unemployed for a while, and I've yet to find good reason to upgrade. As long as a phone fits your use-case, you can pretty much go with whatever - octa core little BIG SoCs are mainstream now.

    Exactly. In fact, this is one reason why I started using my Palm Pre 3 again since my last post, at least for sensitive stuff, because I'm fairly sure all the webOS surveillance systems have long since shut down, with only TCP/IP and cell voice being tracked... and frankly both of those would be tracked no matter what phone I use.

    I only bought a smartphone because my last laptop died after less than a year due to faulty hardware and they wanted 280 to get it fixed.
    Fuck you Acer.

    Dunno. Just remember to buy a Nokia so the Asiatic menace doesn't profit from copying White ingenuity.

    Funny that to get a Nokia you'd have to either buy a refurb from the very same Asiatic menace, or go for HMD's Android knockoffs made for that Asiatic menace first and foremost (all HMD Nokias released in China first).

    most people dont really need or benefit from the extra features that thousand dollar smartphones have, unless you really want the best in mobile gaming or something you should be better off with a midrange phone.
