For the last week I've been using 3 phones, an iPhone, an Android....and a Linux phone. Which one is ACTUALLY better? If you do enjoy then a sub to the channel would be...😉

  • What do you think to the new setup? Trying to make the lighting a little better every video! Also, yes, I realise the correct pronunciation is Lin-ux, not Lie-nux - My Bad! 😂

  • If I had a wish to learn the programming & research the modes of snooping, I would write apps that falsified the data sent to snoopers. FWIW I did write two apps for my Xperia, but they are actually local web pages, running JavaScript/HTML. And the phone isn't a phone, until I put a SIM in, which I don't. Snooper-free? Fer sure. My actual phone is for making calls, and receiving texts, rarely.

  • Ok I'm watching this on my computer I don't use CSbuild on my phone & don't get people who do WHY are you trying to go blind? Now I can see if you blew a tire & need a how to step by step on how to change a tire fine.. But if you need that you shouldn't probably be driving a car I don't participate in social media frankly who cares if the barista made a pretty heart on my coffee or my bartender made a smiley face out of the whipped cream on my drink Trust me the only people who care either A have nothing better to do with their lives or B are seriously creepy people trolling others I DO follow publishers on YT mostly for informational content. where I will subscribe, I feel no need whatsoever to hit the notification bell. You put out something new? Great! when I get back to my computer with a screen I can enjoy it on I'll watch I'm ALL FOR a LINUX phone! PLEASE de Google & I'm saying this after being one of the people "invited" to open a Gmail account WAY back when they started

  • People will have to move past the small ball “there’s no app for this” thinking with Linux phones. It’s a computer, and with the right hardware accessories(USB-C hubs), can replace more than one device for a lot of people. I don’t think it will be for everyone right now, but as more users realize the potential, I think it will snowball. That said, de-Googled Android is really good right now as a phone, so I could be totally wrong...

  • You wrong for begin video. Linux is Android. GNU/Linux is Librem, for example. Linux is just the kernel. Also Android is not free software, is closed software. AOSP yes, is free software, but NOT Android. /e/ and LineageOS are free software.

  • I think your wrong about it being too late! in fact if you think about how ads changed everything for movies and music you can imagine some changes involving crypto like maybe the brave browser that makes use of giving back the power of your data and could lead d new direction for people using a more secure device

  • I remember Ubuntu tried launching Ubuntu Touch in 2014. I was excited to try it out, however, the problem was in finding a Ubuntu compatible phone, or one that would allow me to change the OS, but those were impossible to find. I tried various countries, including South Africa and South America, no one had those phones. Unless more phone companies allow an easy OS change or feature their phones with Linux OS, the new OS will never beat Android, which is also Linux...

  • LINUX. LIN-UX. LIN. LIN. There is no E. It is not pronounced like there is an imaginary E like LINE-EX. Its really really easy, just pronounce it like it is spelled. Lin-ux. Not LINE.

  • Mr Whose, I just want to say I’ve really grown to like your channel. At first it seemed like an MKBHD knock-off (you two have surprisingly similar mannerisms. But you have your own unique topics and very interesting ways to present the material. I think you’re knocking it out of the park. Waiting for the 10MM subscriber vid to find out why your CSbuild name is grammatically incorrect!

  • I`m 28 and I don`t have social media, heck my phone is not even connected to internet. The only way he can connect to it is in my home with wi-fi. The only apps that I have are forced by bank and a steam.( Which I also don`t have a reason to use outside of home ) I would say doubt i`m that unique of a person. Soo I mean, if not for the forced apps nowdays I could live with Nokia 3310 just fine.
