Re: off topic, who can help me for buying mobile phone with android operating system?


I really doubt these apps do anything unless you somehow activate them or give them information or perhaps do something else.  I don't have a smart phone and I don't know much about apps, but I receive a technology newsletter and I have for years.  I haven't once seen this subject, that is, just having the apps on a phone, discussed or even mentioned as a possible security concern.  I am therefore skeptical that they are a concern.  Of course, I'll consider other comments and I'm not assuming I am right but at this point, I am very skeptical that these are problems.

Maybe it's better that you don't even get an android phone. You've already been told that you can't remove those programs. They're part of the package.

using and installing apps is easy without play store.
simply i download installer file of my desired programs and install them without forcing to have always the last versions of programs and i can control and use my desired versions of softwares without updating them specially automatic update!
i heard rooting phones is dangerous, but i really wish to remove this apps and use anything that i wish.
and while, i dont trust youtube, play store and facebook etc, i love opensource operating system, i love espeak iven3 and wish to have it!

By God,
were I given all the seven heavens
with all they contain
in order that
I may disobey God
by depriving an ant
from the husk of a grain of barley,
I would not do it.
