Re: Can Google do something...think of the users!

It's not Google's fault. It's the carriers / manufacturers.

The carriers are worse than the manufacturers.

What needs to happen is standardisation of mobile equipment and isolation of vendor specific crapware into standalone optional applications.

Or at least ban carriers from interfering with firmware.

I haven't had a carrier supplied phone for decades now and it's been bliss...but then, I'm not at the low end of the market nor do I buy kit second hand. I refresh every 3 or so years because of wear and tear.
