Hi, I’m happy user of /e/OS “R” on my rather old Galaxy S5, but I’m thinking about giving it to my kid and buying used Pixel 4 variant. I have noticed, that Pixel 4 XL has version “Minimal S” in the table. What is actually the difference between “S” and “Minimal S”? Thank you.
Welcome to the forum @kosa
This is a contraction of “Android S - MINIMAL_APPS”. Android S is the Android version, no change there.
Devices where MINIMAL_APPS are specified generally have less space to install the “full size” /e/OS.
According to How to Build the /e/OS ROM?
For now it’s removing LibreOffice viewer, PDFViewer, Maps and Weather.
In a current build, you are likely to get the current spec. build minus PDF Viewer and Maps. Both of these can be downloaded easily from your favourite store.
Thank you very much for such a detailed reply. That’s great to know. I actually prefer bare OS and install only tools which I need.
