Re: Or the fourth option...
> _Abuse of monopoly_, not just monopoly. When the store owner makes it mandatory to have an account in the store in order to get security patches for your phone and bricks your phone if you try to use other shops, it's obviously abuse.
I get it. You hate Google with a passion and probably love Microsoft (is that you TheVogon?) and resent Windows Phone being a complete failure.
But there is no need to just make stuff up: "bricks your phone if you try to use other shops". Bullshit!! Using F-Droid does not brick your Android.
> Reality is that it isn't only shop, it's only the only _Google approved_ shop, just because they own it.
Why would they approve a shop that they don't control and therefore have no information about ?
