I'm aware of that... until I can afford a Librem 5, Android phones are
really the only viable option, as iOS (Apple) is far worse in terms of
user freedom.

It does keep Google away from my browsing history, though, even if
otherwise it's mainly a symbolic gesture. I get a kick out of how Google
tries to warn you that your phone won't work right if you disable
Chrome, too...
