After using /e/OS for months, I realized that /e/OS has drawbacks (Bliss, preinstalled apps, etc…) and I felt that LineageOS was more suitable for someone, like me, who loves to tinker with his smartphone.
The problem is that, /e/OS being bifurcated from LineageOS, I heard that some Google code snippets stayed on LineageOS and that /e/ would, since then, fix it (which I really appreciate).
So, my question is: is LineageOS privacy friendly, like /e/OS?
Because I’m facing a choice:
Either I stay at /e/OS, being sure not to give me any personal data, but I should, in this case, accept some ergonomic drawbacks (at the same time, /e/OS is designed for the general public, not for a geek like me, which is normal, in my opinion)
Either I move to LineageOS, and I appeal to my geek desires, while taking the risk of giving, even slightly, personal data to Google
What do you think?
Even if I came to LineageOS, I would still be a contributor to /e/OS, and I would always prefer the latter over LineageOS. It’s just that, as it stands, /e/OS is not entirely satisfactory. I’m waiting for the v1, and the option to install the minimum in /e/OS.
