Open source smartphone - is it feasible?

<< < (6/6)

A good way would be to root your phone and customize it for yourself! But the main thing is that the phone can be rooted. For example, Honor phones cannot be rooted.

Peter Gamma:
Does it have to be a completely open source phone? There are so many great Linux phones available:


and there also many great Linux watches available these days:


and there is a growing community for these devices.
