I recently dropped my old phone in the toilet, because I'm clumpsy and have soaphands. This wasn't all bad though, since this meant I could do something I've wanted to do for a while; get a Fairphone 3.
It's a great phone, built to be repaired, and to get the people making it a living wage. There's no FOSS operating systems avalaible for it yet though. Fortunately, you can use the phone without logging in to a Google-account. So my phone is still tracking me, but Google doesn't know that it's me.
I have replaced all applications but the dialer, E-ID, and my banking app with open source alternatives. Below is a list of some of the applications that I have installed on my device and what functionality they are providing on my phone.
|Antennapod||Amazing podcast app, even better than PodcastAddict which was my old goto|
|Aurora||Lets me install stuff from the Google-store without an account, like my banking app|
|Davx5||Lets me sync my contacts to my Nextcloud with CardAV instead of to Google|
|Easer||Automation, kind of like tasker|
|F-Droid||Repository of open source applications, this is what is making all this possible|
|Fennec-Fdroid||Un-mozilla-branded version of Mozilla Firefox|
|Frost||Unfortunately I can not ditch Facebook entirely, Frost is an interface for Facebook.|
|K9-Mail||My favourite android e-mail client|
|Osmand+||Replaces Google Maps|
|Nextcloud||To sync and upload stuff to my own Nextcloud-server|
|OpenCamera||Replaces the stock camera|
|OpenKeychain||Handles my GPG-keys|
|OpenLauncher||Fast and quick launcher|
|Passwordstore||Interface for pass|
|RedditSlide||Really neat Reddit-reader|
