Leaving Apple and Google: my "eelo odyssey". Part1: the mobile OS - Gaël Duval (À propos, blog, news...)
so basically trying to build an easy/low-effort/opensource stack for a phone, by customizing Android? (seems like he would prefer otherwise, but doesn't have the skills)
Using LeEco Le2 as hardware, eventually upgrade to a Xiaomi Mi 5S

Living with an open-source phone | Read the Tea Leaves
Running a mostly 100% OSS Android phone, using LineageOS and F-Droid.
(also see lobste.rs discussion: https://lobste.rs/s/fya8hg/living_with_open_source_phone)

pmz: "Also, despite my attempts to de-mystify some of the less obvious parts of this setup, I’m in no way claiming that any of this is accessible to the non-geek, non-hacker crowd. The mere process of installing LineageOS is so far beyond the capabilities of the average non-techie that it actually fills me with a kind of despair. [...] I’m becoming concerned that my friends and I in the open-source, pro-privacy hacker scene are building a two-tiered world, where the tech elite can successfully install and configure software that maintains their security and privacy, whereas the average person is stuck either paying a premium for a privacy-respecting but closed-source iPhone, or paying a reasonable price for an Android phone where their security and privacy are far from assured."
(and also note exactly what he uses on the phone: weather, maps, comms, web browser, etc.)
