I’m fond of the idea that a dumbphone can detach us from tech in a meaningful way. I’m slowly adding components of this decentralized electronic device/system in my life. I have a DSLR for photos, a laptop for learning, working and leisure, a Fiio M3K digital audio player for music. I require gps for navigation in my day-to-day travels. I’m at the point where I’d like to ditch my android smartphone and go with a 4G LTE dumbphone that is compatible in both North America and Europe.
Since the phone being produced by Mudita OS doesn’t come out until April, maybe I should get a used, de-googled phone off of eBay to try out in the interim? Then I can "have the facts"and see if I should keep a smartphone, albeit a de-googled one with me, or just keep on the path of having a device for each need that I have.
Thoughts on this?
