  1. While this is most probably true and I understand what you mean, this is still in the FAQ on the IndieGoGo campaign: "Does the Pro1-X work on all US based network providers? The Pro1 supports all major US carriers. However, you need to be aware of a little process required to have signal on Verizon or Sprint due to their more complex setup. In order to have signal on Verizon or Sprint, you’ll first need to activate the SIM card on a previously known approved Verizon device. Or you can simply swap your SIM card to the Pro1-X from your current phone on Verizon. This does not apply to T
  2. Seeing as this is a forum for the Pro1 and upcoming Pro1 X cellphones (and other future products) from f(x)tec, one might argue that you are asking about your Samsung phone in the wrong place. However, I think you may have more luck finding help here: https://forum.xda-developers.com/c/samsung-galaxy-s20-s20-s20-ultra.9711/
  3. I was not surprised that data harvesting was occuring, that is common knowledge since ages back. But to collect data about how long I watch a certain screen of a certain app, potentially for all of the apps in ones phone? I quite honestly find it hard to believe they are even able to process all of that data..
  4. I 100℅ agree thats probably the case. However, I was more or less blown away with the extent of survaillance in some of the other OSes. I mean, I knew they would phone home, but thats borderline ridiculous.
  5. Yes, /e/OS puts more effort into delivering privacy focused default apps and settings, I believe. If anyone is curious, I stumbled upon this report about data collection by some Android based operating systems (including Samsung, Xiaomi and Huawei proprietary OSes as well as LineageOS and /e/OS). Seems like (not very surprising) /e/OS came out on top, followed by LineageOS as the least data collecting OSes in the study. A link to an article written by Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland where the study took place: https://www.tcd.ie/news_events/articles/study-reveals-scale-o
  6. Well, to be honest, I just like the feel of /e/ better than lineage. Also, /e/ has their own Apps store that includes a privacy scan from Exodus Privacy (lists all recognized trackers and permissions in the apps) for all apps in the store and gives the apps a "privacy score" based on that. Pretty neat. I do like the default apps in /e/ a little better, while I have to say I like the default launcher of lineage a bit more, but both are highly subjective, I suppose.
  7. To be honest, I wish I had an 835 just to try this ROM out. I have been running /e/ (although the stable release) on another device as daily driver for the last few months and I am very happy with it. I feel like the Pro1/Pro1X with /e/ would be the next best thing to native Linux for me personally. Did not have the opportunity to try SFOS out yet though..
  8. I recently discovered that /e/OS has a beta build for the F(x)tec Pro1 (the original device with the SD835 SOC, not the Pro1X, for now) available for downloads for those that are interested. According to /e/ themselves, "/e/OS is a complete, fully 'deGoogled', mobile ecosystem." It is compatible with normal Android apps, F-droid, Aurora Store and can, supposedly, pass SafetyNet checks by default. what do you think about adding this to the list of available ROMs, @EskeRahn? The link for info and download(s) is: https://doc.e.foundation/devices/pro1
