What it’s like to use a De-Googled phone in real life? (Q&A of concerns)

Ezekiel Diet Note: I just purchased a de-Googled Google Pixel 3a (2018 phone refurbished) from Rob Braxman Tech for $400 and change. I received it yesterday (about a week) and had it operational with my carrier in about 5 minutes.  I loaded all the apps I wanted via Aurora and never had to log in. Actually the Google Pixel 3a looks and feels brand new and I’m very impressed with the phone.

I’ve been using BlackBerry Z30 phones (2012) for several years but my carrier is ending service for all BlackBerry phones 12/31/2022. It looks and functions like everyone else’s phone but I was still using the BB Research In Motion (RIM) operating system that was always more secure that Apple or Android. I ordered 6 of them for like $70 each and if I dropped one and broke the screen I just move the sim card and setup a new one. Wipe the old one and throw it away.

I ordered a Volta phone over 90 days ago after Alex Jones endorsed them. Volta has charged me for phone service for 4 months but I still haven’t received the phone.

I’ve been looking for a local phone guy that could give me answers to all my questions.  Rob Braxman does a good job of explaining everything you need to know in this video. By the way Rob is holding a Google Pixel phone in this video. They’re thin and very light and slippery. The glass screen resists fingerprints. The back is gloss slippery. The one he uses in the video has a case attached which I recommend.

What is it actually like to use a de-Googled Android phone as a daily driver? Will it feel like you became a luddite or a cave man eschewing tech? Is it actually usable? What apps can you run? What about navigation? Will you survive without Google? Does it change how the cell phone works? Does it affect the battery? Do we need to change habits to keep privacy with a de-Googled phone? Do I lose privacy when I log on to another app? This video discusses the actual real life experience of using Android Open Source Project (AOSP) on a phone without GAPPS (Google Apps). It will discuss what’s possible and what the expected limitations are. It will discuss if this is usable as a daily driver.
