Re: Fair enough

You know you can buy an Android phone, and DECLINE the Google stuff when you switch it on? Decline, skip sign in, and that's it. if you do this, none of the Google stuff works, and nothing is sent to Google, you have Android and you can do what you want with it.

If your tin foil hat is still letting in brain radiation, you can even disable the Google stuff (app properties, disable app), which removes it's executable permission, and removes it from the launcher, making it a VERY stock Android device.
