Google Pixel 3a DeGoogled Phone

A DeGoogled version of the Google Pixel 3a. This is a legacy flagship phone produced by Google which, in our opinion, is the best value DeGoogled phone on the market. The Google Pixel range are very high quality phones with very secure hardware.


When will I receive my device?

A Degoogled device is a bespoke, 'made to measure' item meaning that we build each phone to suit your individual needs. This takes a little care and time.
We are a small team and prefer quality over speed so at busy times there may be up to a 2 week delay so please be patient with us as we endeavour to fulfil your order as fast as possible.

If your requirement is urgent, let us know and we'll do what we can to fulfil your order faster.

What is it like to own a De-Googled phone?

De-Googled phones are given a fresh new Android operating system that looks and functions the same way as any other Android phone, just without anything invasive.

All of our DeGoogled phones are installed with alternative apps to the ones you usually use. So, instead of Google Maps, you will find Magic Earth. Instead of YouTube, you will find NewPipe. Instead of Google Play store, you will find F-Droid and Aurora store etc... Whatever you will likely need, we've got you covered!

A game-changing feature of our eOS based phones is the addition of the Shelter Work profile.
With Shelter, you can essentially split your phone in two and utilise this additional profile to install any big brother apps you may find difficult doing without.

This work profile allows you to use tracker filled apps in a heavily locked down state with curtailed permissions and an inability to snoop on your personal profile.

Once you have experienced the quietness, the lack of pushy notifications, unwanted apps that cannot be uninstalled and the simplicity of owning a DeGoogled phone, you'll never want to go back!

Another benefit of owning a DeGoogled phone is usually superior battery life and performance too!

For your peace of mind



What apps can I install on my DeGoogled phone?

It's important to understand that your De-Googled phone has been stripped of the software that has the ability to spy on you or intrude on your privacy. This means Apps like WhatsApp, Google Maps, Facebook and Instagram are not present on a DeGoogled phone, nor should they be added to one.

Although you can add any Android compatible apps to this phone, understand you start to compromise your privacy again if you start adding mainstream apps loaded with trackers.

With this in mind, we do include 4 privacy apps that still allow you to interact with Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Reddit without needing the official app.

What condition is this phone in?

For these Pixel 3a Degoogled phones, we utilise refurbished phones.

We work hard to ensure we always source the highest quality phones that are Grade A or better condition, from reputable refurbishing specialists.

Although we strive for as close to perfect as we can source in any given moment, they are not brand-new phones and some phones will have minor use marks and will not always come with the original box and all of the accessories. They will always come with at least a charging cable and usually a box.

Open-Source software note

These DeGoogled operating systems are crafted by a group of privacy-conscious developers. It's important to note that as free, open-source software, it may not have the same level of refinement and seamless operation as operating systems developed by big tech companies such as Samsung.

They usually operate seamlessly and are as highly functional and dependable as you would expect, but we kindly request that you keep this in mind when purchasing your device, as there is a slight possibility that the software may, on very rare occasions, encounter minor glitches.

While these issues are rare and unlikely to cause any significant inconvenience, they may appear somewhat unpolished if they happen.
