Simple phone: an open source smartphone can be purchased

Simple mobile tools may be familiar to some Android users. A collection of simple apps that includes keyboard, calendar, dialer, notes, photo gallery and more. Pretty much a basic set of apps that is normally provided by manufacturers. In May, the developer announced its own smartphone. It should be clear that you’re not just sweating a smartphone off your ribs. Still, you can order devices in fairly manageable quantities from contract manufacturers.

This also seems to have been done with the Simple Phone, buyers get a smartphone with outdated hardware for 400 euros. But on board: the freedom of Google, but under the flag of Android. The apps are from the F-Droid alternative app store and the custom Android 11 is called Simple OS. It all happened with the Good Phone Foundation. Interested parties can learn more about the developer’s motivations here. Assumption: It will be difficult to find fans for this device.
