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!

It's important to understand that your De-Googled phone has been stripped of all 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 if you like, but then you start to compromise your privacy again.

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

These Galaxy S5's are brand new and unused phones. However, it's important to understand that this Galaxy S5 model is now a few years old, and despite being brand new and unused, they have still been sat in warehouses for a long time. Usually these phones are free from any problems, however they are more prone to issues than the higher end / newer models we supply.

Open-Source software note:
LineageOS is an operating system crafted by a group of privacy-conscious developers. It's important to note that as a 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, even though it's highly functional and dependable. Therefore, we kindly request that you keep this in mind when purchasing your device, as there is a slight possibility that the software may occasionally encounter minor glitches. While these LineageOS issues are rare and unlikely to cause any significant inconvenience, they may appear somewhat unpolished.
