I was wondering why smartphone vendors like OnePlus, Samsung etc ship with lot of unnecessary gapps
The user should have the independence or liberty to pick them on their own instead of getting forced and bloating the device with unwanted stuff
Like I understand PlayStore is important but for others we have alternatives. For example.
- Google Maps alternative MapMyIndia, Apple Maps
- Google Drive alternative Dropbox, Proton Drive etc
- YouTube: Not everyone wants it
- Play Games: Who needs it. When you can login with Facebook, Twitter or something else?
Actually even Playstore have alternatives like Aptoide and not everyone needs it
