No uses same shitty hardware like the Brax phone and simple phone.

Also another point: with this Murena l you don’t get Google but you get /e/ you have to trust. What ensures you they are any better? Security wise they simply won’t be able to live up to Google and afaik they don’t use e2ee. Choose your poison imo.

And they already leaked user data to others and just kept saying Nextcloud server-side-encryption is OK.

Thank you. I think you already gave enough reason to ditch this.
