The new website highlights the study of Prof. Douglas C. Schmidt with an infographic mentioning 90 (Android with a Google account) or 51 (iPhone) data collections per hour for a typical day of use. https://digitalcontentnext.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/08/DCN-Google-Data-Collection-Paper.pdf (BTW: I really wish the study would provide the figure for an Android phone without a Google account.)
What figure should be expected for an /e/ phone ?
How will you ensure that ?
Are there plans to have /e/ benchmarked in similar studies ?
I’m easily convinced that /e/ could reach the iPhone figure (51). However, considering Figure 12 on page 24, showing 88% of requests to Ad Domains (related to browsing third-party webpages and apps), I’m wondering how /e/ would go very significantly below 51; and how different this would be from a regular Android phone with no Google account and a custom choice of Web Browser/extensions.
Best of luck
