    And my S8 has features nobody even talks about. Like measuring Air Pressure or height above sea level, a compass, reading out the gyroscope and stuff, don't know why nobody mentions this stuff :)

    Hey Linus, here is a question: How do I install Android on my Lumia 950? With Windows Mobile officially going off the grid by the end of the year, I am flabbergasted that *no one* has yet published instructions on how to switch to Android on existing Lumia phones. Millions of Lumia users _need_ this information - heck, I would _pay_ for it - and yet nobody seems to address this problem. Any suggestions?

    many people misunderstood the concept of "customization". its not just changing fonts, launchers, icons...but changing the entire os for your preference.
    You can even go out from google eco-system by installing AOSP based os, like lineage os which is barebone android with regular updates.
    But 99% people wont do that. Most people need a communication device cheap enough.
    previously i have used many android phones with lots of customization, like
    deleting unwanted system apps, ringtones,
    changing boot image with my name on it,
    editing boot animation, which is entertaining at that time,
    changing os, changing system theme by editing system theme files,
    playing with cpu, gpu clockspeeds to save some battery(z5 compact), build.prop edits,
    playing with device Kernel.
    But now i'm using pixel 3. I dont play with my mobile as i used to be. but i'll do it, if i'm board.
    there are many things i liked in android. especially the following list...
    1. in android i can zip/unzip rar files downloaded from internet.
    2. change my desktop apperance as i prefer
    3. can download torrent easily
    4. can use download manager like idm on windows
    5. can use manual controls in camera
    - now mostly every smartphone has it. but when i had oneplus one, i can shoot night shots with longer exposure, light trails shots, 30s astrophotography. some of the photos still looks amazing
    6. copy texts from multi windows( even from images on pixel 3 )
    7. almost every app is buy-able like less then $5. last year i searched call recording app for my uncle's iphone....almost all apps costs more than $50 !!! he switched to android few months later
    8. per app permission manager, now improved in android 10...but not the same level as lineage os permission manager
    9. can go for android without google(but now i can't/won;t, bcoz i liked pixel more & liked many google services, drive, play music, CAMERA...)
    10. take control mostly everything if you really wanted

    iPhone.... because you want other people to see you have an iPhone.
    Android..... because you want a really good phone that feels like your phone and not a restricted limited gimmick phone.
    Android is the best but iPhone feels amazing in your hand, really beautiful craftsmanship.... but fuck ipho e!
