I came across /e/ the other day and want to hear feedback from anyone using it in the USA. My carrier is Ting which is a Verizon MVNO (been with them for years and can’t recommend them enough). I am on an Essential PH-1 / Android 10.
It seems like /e/ will basically do all I really need it to do, though I am concerned about running a couple of apps like Micro$oft Outlook + Teams (work) and Ubiquiti Amplifi (for our home wifi) and a couple of others commercially available on Google Play. I think I’d just opt to buy one of the devices for sale instead of installing on the Essential (—> Samsung S9).
I’ve seriously been entertaining de-Googling myself for years, but the hassle of actually doing it (especially installing the new OS) has always been the roadblock for me… how does the /e/ ecosystem compare to Google’s? I really only use Drive, Photos, Docs, Gmail, youtube…I can learn to change/adapt these services but I just would like to hear any US user’s experiences and what not.
