I have a Sony Xperia Z with version 4.1.2 running.
My question is about removing all of the Google baggage from the phone.
I have no Google account tied to my phone and would really like to get rid of all traces of Google from my phone for a few reasons:
- Battery performance: Google services ranks in the top 3 of what uses up my battery
- Privacy: I try to minimize what Google siphons from my phone with the exception of Google maps
- Less Dependency: I don't want to be dependent on one company for all my needs.
So are there any Android versions out there that are minimalistic and do not invade your privacy?
