Today I dropped my phone. Half the screen doesn't work at all and the
other half displays dimly in a few colors. It is a Samsung Galaxy S
This is a very old phone (released in 2012). I chose it because it was
small (4" screen) and because there was a Cyanogenmod ROM available for
it--I flashed it immediately on purchase.
The only real limitation I ran into over 4 years of use was a lack of
onboard storage (1 GB). I have to confess I haven't kept up with the
state of Android since then--specifically how much it siphons off your
personal data, and how much control it gives you over what apps do on
What's a good current choice for a phone that:
1. Is a good privacy choice
2. Isn't too large (fits in a pants pocket easily)
3. Isn't super expensive--having the latest is not important to me
4. Has to be a SIM model, fully-compatible with T-Mobile
I know this isn't really a "linux" topic, so maybe just email me
directly if you think that's more appropriate.
