Tin hat vrs Cloud
I got a sonyZ1 compact, the best phone I have ever had yet then disabled all the Google services (including search) then used internet standard stuff IMAP for email, CalDav, CardDav and WebDav.
Work forced me to have a Iphone 5S and it just sits in the desk draw doing nothing, a horrible device and horrible operating system.
You know my music fits on the SD card and I don't need a cloudy thing or an internet connection to access it. Camera very good too.
