Currently Google and Apple are dominating the smartphone industry. Their various platforms give them access to a whole range of your private data, with which they ultimately earn a great deal of money through advertising. This commercial exploitation of users must be changed.
Ubuntu operating system
The Fairphone 2 running on Ubuntu is a modern smartphone offering a good alternative to the systems of Google and Apple. The Ubuntu operating system does not depend on the cloud. Ubuntu is also virtually free of viruses and other malware that can extract your data.
Ubuntu is an open source software operating system. This means that everyone has access to the source code and change it, distribute it or copy it. That makes it impossible to install software backdoors.
Thanks to its convergence technology, you can easily attach an external screen to your smartphone. This makes you less dependent on public cloud services or public WiFi networks. Documents that you have made have never been in the cloud.
