Are there any modern phones that have the following:>removable battery>headphone jack>microsd slot>unlocked bootloader and/or rootableI have a google pixel 3 on graphene, and I really enjoy it but god damn I miss removable batteries and headphone jacks.
>>82025041The Fairphone 3 is the only one left with all of those features. Hope you aren't American.
All of the phones above suck, use the LG 5. It's the best Foss-capable phone out there. They are dirt cheap, batteries can be procured on eBay for $5-10 a pop, and the phone is USB-C capable
Idk I'm considering ziptying a touch screen to a libre sbc with a cellular hat at this point
>>82025041>but god damn I miss removable batteries and headphone jacks.Yep. technology gets more shit.I have some Chinese shit phone(android) has>headphone jack>microsd slotHowever the battery is impossible to remove.its full of Chinese shit software and I bet 100% of what I do is send to china.>grapheneI wish I can use this, can I even flash this to my chink shit phone or will it brick my?
>>82025564The bad news about LGs is that VoLTE won't work with custom ROMs. Since most carriers are requiring that now in order to make a fucking phone call, its gonna suck ass.
i want one with a headphone jack and fm radio tuner. yes i know i sound like a boomer
>>82025981>cant make a phone calli dont think that's an issue for a good amount of anons.
Come to the audio heaven, LG V30.
>>820250411st three should be available on plenty of $100 androids
>>82025779Grapheneos is only available for the google pixel series of phones iirc. If your phone happens to be the Xiaomi Mi A2, look into calyxOS. Otherwise, look into lineageOS, I have seen it be well regarded on /g/. For more options, take a look at the "popular choices" part of the instalgentoo wiki.https://wiki.installgentoo.com/wiki/Android_ROMs
>>82025411Yeah let me just spend $2000 on a FOSS phone. What a fucking scam.
>>82025041Bunch of xiaomi chink phones.They have good battery life too.
>>82026434this. literally all my calls are fucking robocalls and scammers
>>82025041Nokia 2 2
>>82026640Pinephone isn't $2000 though
>>82026565Thanks for the help and info.>Grapheneos is only available for the google pixel series of phones iirc.FUCK ME !Now the chinks will get send everything I do on my phone.> Xiaomi Mi A2This can be it.> look into calyxOS. Otherwise, look into lineageOS, I have seen it be well regarded on /g/.Thanks for the info is there something that can return the phone to its default OS if I fuck it up with free tard shit ? Its a phone used for business so its not like anything to sensitive is going on there.Literally everything has spyware and some cloud shit that asks you to have access to everything even the calculator !
>>82025981>VoLTE won't work with custom ROMs. Since most carriers are requiring that now in order to make a fucking phone call, its gonna suck ass.You are living in this timeline !'Did you remember to honk today?
>>82025041Sony is open to custom roms, they check everything off here except for removable battery. Only phone I know of these days that has a removable battery is linux community stuff like the pinephone or Samsung Xcover.
>>82028611>LG V20OP said modern not 6 years old
>>82028642What's the big difference? Does anyone really need it or care? Apple disease.
>>82028676No it doesn't matter. My own phone is from 2014. But 6 years is a long time, it's an old phone, that's just reality.
>>82026640>OPEN SOURCE PHONE SHOULD BE FREEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!
>>82025041you can get a new motorola for 100-200$ with everything except the removable battery
>>82025411Op here, is the Pinephone actually any good?I only really use it for browsing /g/, calling/messaging, and listening to music. Is it actually functional enough yet to do that?
>>82025041I too want this.
>>82029315old motorola E models have dual sim and removable battery.
Motorola E4. Headphone Jack, (sadly single SIM), SD card, removable battery, decent camera, probably can flash a custom ROM on it, not too big, not too small. Has shit power though so if you're planning to play PUBG on it forget it.
>>82025554There's a company that imports fairphones into the US btw.
>>82025989We must make our own phone.
Samsung Xcover 5
>>82030317Also curious. I hear it lags a shit ton, but I might be willing to pay that price for a fully free phone.
>>82031107I would unironically buy a phone like that
>>82031107>>82031107This is what spyware shills actually believe !
Doesn't the pixel 4* have a headphone jack?
>>82030760Honestly this is looking like the best choice.Does it support LineageOS?
>>82031699No. They're all USB C only.
>>82025041Samsung galaxy S10
>>82031710I don't see it specifically listed on the Lineage website but Lineage is supported on the slightly "upper version" G-line so I don't see why it wouldn't be supported on the E-line. The Moto G4 Play is specifically listed on Lineage OS and has basically the same specs as the E4. It's a little smaller though
>>82032334smol phone. This is the closest android-wise you're getting to an iPhone 5
>>82025041This but with <5" screen. It doesn't exist.
>>82026640that's a librem5, the pinephone is onefiddy
>>82031710The moto e5 play has a lineage os rom.
>>82032364That's the reason I'm still using the LG G2 mini. Headphone jack, SD slot, removable battery that still holds the whole day, 4,6" screen, flashed with Resurrection Remix (fork of Lineage), Android 7.1.2 is the newest version sadly. Haven't had any luck finding newer phones with those specs, no idea what I'll get when this one eventually dies.
>>82025041Alcatel U50, but it's a piece of garbagesource: I own oneI got one for 100$ at wal*martonly thing is you have to pop the rear panel off to access the microsd slotit's a burner phone through and through. 3g only afaik, almost never comes locked >>82032364just measured my U50, it's nearly 6" overall and the screen is 4.97" according to my shitty digital calipers
>removeable batterywhy is this so important to "security"-obsessed retards again?
>>82025571you can get laptops with WWAN cards. most business models (i.e. chinkpads) have them. install skype and you're g2g, it's only like 4$ a month for a stable number and unlimited voice calling
>>82032589So it can't track you.
>>82032589So you can have spares
>>82032628>being tracked by a fucking battery>not assuming it has backup power>not just leaving your phone at home>not just getting a fucking land line or using a wifi device only and voipretard>>82032634this would be reasonable like 10 years ago but usb power packs are like 4$ each while replacement batteries are hard to find and usually very expensive. you can literally get 1500-2500mAh usb batteries at the dollar store and can use them for more than just your phone
>>82032589So if software bricks/buttons don't work you don't have to wait until the battery dies to restart it.
>>82032666usb batteries don't help much when the internal battery dies. replacement batteries really aren't that hard to find for flagship models (well, they weren't back when those had replaceable batteries)
my xperia XA2 has 3/4. If you cure your schizophrenia you might be able to live without a removable battery
>>82032666Based satan.Also;>Not carrying a feature phone without a SIM card for just calling 911 if you need it.
>>82032714>be american>call 911>get shotno thank u>>82032684internal batteries can be replaced, you just need tools. and when batteries die it can be messy and will likely ruin the phone anyway. these shits catch fire in your pocket these days>>82032671an actually fair point tbqh laddo, can't disagree therefor the record I do like replaceable batteries but it'd never be a dealbreaker for me and stinks of meme-laden autism to absolutely demand
>>82030317It's a developer phone still in BETA. I wouldn't get it unless you like tinkering/hacking. I can certainly do those things you mentioned; it's essentially a PineH64 (similar to RPi4) but with less hardware acceleration in a phone form factor. The battery life also sucks donkey dick. What is cool about it is that you can connect a HDMI monitor to it making it a basic linux desktop experience. If you want a reliable phone, the pinephone isn't for you.
>>82030317>I only really use it for browsing /g/,get a real computer you fucking degenerate phoneposter
>>82031107If /g/ actually made the iphone, it would be a fucking stone tablet because you can't get more "superior" than that.
>>82032579>actual answer>0 replieslol
>>82032754Meh, often times they die by just refusing to charge or by bulging up. And yes you can still replace internal batteries, but it being made purposefully harder to turn you into a consoomer which in turn makes spares harder to find is fucked up.
>>82032820>turn you into a consoomerif you weren't a consoomer already you'd just get some bullshit burner flip phone at a superstore instead of coming to /g/ about it and asking for product recommendations
>>82032846Functionality shouldn't come at the price of having to produce a shit ton of waste and buying a new phone every two years. I'm not asking for recommendations because i know all phones suck, so I'll keep using my shitty buggy no-name smartphone i bought refurbished years ago until it explodes
>>82032846>burner flip phone at a superstoreI fucking wish I could. Here (Wurstland), you have to register your phone number with your ID, even if it's a phone plan from Aldi. Pre-paid cards also need to be activated in person (or webcam) with ID as far as I know.
>>82031208>I hear it lags a shit tonThat's because it has the performance of a 2014 phone and these idiots slap GNOME and KDE on there. sxmo works flawlessly.
>>82033199post citation from actual law or you're a nignogorder one online then RETARD or get a voip number FAGGOT
>>82033355>phone has to tell you ur a good boi whomst is le future tee hee ;^)cringe
>>82031140I bought this like a month ago. Seems like the best nu-phone choice.Miss my N7000 already though.Haven't looked into unfucking it yet.
modern phone?just get a random phone from the last 10 years.look around for one with a radio chip but other than that there are literally 10000+ models of phones the last 10 years which fits that criteria.
>>82033881Here you go, RETARD:https://www.gesetze-im-internet.de/tkg_2004/__111.htmlAnd if that level of German is too hard for you:https://mobil.pcwelt.de/a/registrierungspflicht-fuer-prepaid-sim-karten-das-muessen-sie-beachten,3447252>order one onlineStill need to register it, just online over webcam.>voip numberRegistered as well.
>>82034214have you considered simply using a VPN and lying to the government?
>>82034245>using a VPN with a phone numberYou retarded or something? Unless you have constant wifi for voip, that's not going to work.>lying to the governmentI'd rather not go to prison because of a phone, I just don't use one.
>>82034374>>using a VPN with a phone numberno, to go online and register the phone number, retard. Do you think every american tourist has to get their photo taken at the border to associate a phone number? Get a phone number from another cunt, doofus.>I'd rather not go to prison because of a phone, you're a massive pussy if you think you'll get imprisoned because you have the wrong area code.
>>82034643You can't read German, can you? You need to register it with your ID or passport, your IP is irrelevant.
>>82034692You don't need to register your german passport with a non-german number if you get that number outside of germany :^)The VPN is to avoid automatic redirects that VoIP (and other) companies have probably put in for compliance. Even then, there's all those ridiculous pacific and west indian islander phone companies that sell phone cards for immigrants to call home. Why not just get a stack of those?
>>82034762Angela Merkel, bless her heart, will have me personally assassinated if I get a non-german number.
>>82034782just go to poland to buy a phone retard
>>82031074Enjoy being stuck on 2G
>>82032789I only do that when I'm not at home you trog
>>82026640pinephone is $150 lmao
>>82025564I’m interested in the G5. How’s the battery life and performance like just running Lineage? And how FOSS really is it?
>>82025041remove your dependence on such a silly thing and you will be enlightened
>>82030317i like the linux phones but it needs a few more years to develop
>>82032076Wrong board, schizo
>>82025989>>82031107Tonnes of phones have FM tuners, they're generally not talked about in reviews but it's often mentioned on the spec sheet
>>82032671My phone has an oh shit button in case this happens
