Yes, void your warranty and potentially fuck your phone so you don't need to look at the occasional thing you don't fully control on your phone which is probably less than .5 gb total.

>typical autistic linux user meets android

Bloat is removable, not everything has to be open source, nobody is fucking spying on you.


christ, you can't expect everyone to give away his software for free. It doesn't work that way.
>>
>>46848333
rooting can't brick your phone, there are even apps like towelroot that work with one tap and a restart.
>>
>>46848334
Much of the propriety software can be disabled but not removed, being a "default app". Fuck, I even hate that that's now a term. App.

They are pissing on all of our collective lawns. And making a ton of money doing it.

seriously this though
op's list is pretty much why i don't like android. although yes you can root it and cybermanmod it but i don't really aspire to be fucking with my phone that substantially as soon as i buy it...

>proprietary bullshit and unremovable bloat
not on ios
>hate the interface, everything is counter intuitive
this is obviously subjective, but i find a lot of android to be counter intuitive. wp is great for this and ios is just simple. again though, not objective.

yeah

>>46848220
Ummm, so, ummm, you do know that AOSP exists, right?

Just fucking flash AOSP, you can compile it yourself if you aren't half-retarded.

If you are half-retarded, well the factory ROM is probably perfect for you.

Considering you made this post I'm assuming that you are indeed fully retarded, however.

You realize you pay for the phone, right? Paying to have to keep paying is a very legitimate complaint.

its not exactly bloatware that slows the system down, and its shit thats coded by apple... assuming you're talking about the default apps like passbook, that can be tucked away in a folder?

this clearly isn't anywhere near the same level of bullshit as ASUS SMARTWEB CLOUD INSTALLER or SAMSUNG EASYCAM 7.3 or whatever the fuck.

have some class, android users.

You can just root and delete all that in 5 minutes anon, what are you doing?

How is it autistic to want a decent phone with zero botnet?

All mobile phones are botnet. Even old dumbphones can be triangulated.

>>46848380
>experienced computer user
>can't follow detailed step by step retardproofed instructions on how to get root access
You can delete whatever the hell you want. You can even get rid of all the Google bullshit and replace it with open source alternatives if you really want to be a tedious freetard.

>you don't own your phone
It's your own damn fault that you decided to enter into a long-term contract and put yourself in debt for a dumb luxury item you don't need. You easily could've been financially responsible instead and just bought your own damn phone for yourself in cash.

>iit: retards

I'm complaining that I NEED to root it to own something I bought. If I don't, I have to deal with all kinds of predatory software trying to sell me shit that is unremovable. Hence, you don't own your phone. Smartphones are literally paying to be advertised to.

Moto X 2nd Gen.

That's stock google experience as pure as it gets, just with some motorola apps added.

Other phones have more shit built in.

How is iOS both removable and not proprietary?

The problem you have is that you just don't actually understand what OP is talking about. He's talking about ownership of the device in the entirety, you own both the device and the software on it with the freedom to do what you want on it BECAUSE YOU PAID FOR IT.
But that's not what you get, and with iOS it's even more locked down and even more restrictive.

Your points are right to you because you're too stupid to understand what OP is talking about. You appear to be a kid born in slavery who never understands a live beyond the chains.

If you're buying from a company that physically destroys part of your phone when you decide you want to modify the software then you are an idiot.
Stop buying from those companies.

It's a bit different in that mainly, every laptop can be wiped clean easy and have a vanilla OS installed on it, and I don't know any laptop that doesn't give you root OOTB.

Not to mention, that you can install a variety

>>46849464
What are your grievances, specifically? The interface on most phones is largely the same. On older dumb phones there was just a menu button that would take you to your tools/settings/games. Now there's just an "app" button that does the same thing, and you have the ability to move frequently used stuff to the home screen.
