well, then you used the wrong OS, I guess. And who told you there is no Android 9 available for the S5? –> here <– you go. I’m pretty sure, there’s no Samsung bloatware preinstalled, even though I didn’t check it on my own.
once more, not what I wanted to tell. IF they know about the fact and know who they are dealing with, that’s ok to me (my brother is one of this group of people). But if they use their phone without any background knowledge and still trust it blindly, I tend to inform them about what can happen with their data. I personally think, I am doing this on a good basis and let them their choice after all. and yes, even if they say: I know but I don’t want to bother about my privacy (like another member of my family) and goes on exposing my private data to the spyware that is very likely already installed on his computer (due to an anti virus issue he doesn’t care about).
OT Example: Our midwife (who cared about our baby when it got born) once decided to start a whatsapp group and added all her friends and even added all her customers (medical pledge of secrecy, damned hell!).
There are people who don’t care only because they don’t know and I think it’s ignorant not to give them the chance to know.
you’re right, it isn’t. and I didn’t want to say that. (even though it was 5 months, since shipping started in March)
And it’s still possible to get it done faster for the FP3, by the way.
[OT again]: side fact. no, Since S7 there is no single Samsung flagship sold worldwide in the recent years (afaik). they always produced an I-don’t-care-USA-China-Version (Snapdragon chipset) and a rest-of-the-World-Verison (exynos chipset). this isn’t so obvious, since they look the same and the specs are pretty much the same, but it’s a fact and only the international version is supported by alternative roms because they locked up the snapdragon bootloader really badly.
