Backgorund: My old phone was sent to repair due to it being stuck in a boot loop. It came back without anything done to it. The reason was that the moisture actuator had rendered the device useless, and hence void of warantee. To repair it I would have to send it to a repair shop in Luxembourg and pay that in full myself. So, I rather get i new phone.
So: Me being very into open source, and extremely not into Google, would like some input when it comes to either Linux/Open source phones, or standard phones that are easily flashed or de-googled.
My upper limit is around 400 US/Euros, out of principal reasons. My phone should not cost more than an okay laptop!
Extra plus if it can stand moisture, I’m a chef after all, and that was what killed my former phone in the first place.
EDIT: I can and have DDG:ed myself, but, as the zombies say, the more brains, the merrier!
EDIT #2: KDE Connect-able is extra plus plus plus.
