Well, they are a small company, so for them to do R&D, engineering, and manufacturing of a privacy focused phone isn't cheap.
The first wave has already shipped, but doesn't have all the features fully implemented, and the is a waiting list, with several other shipping waves in between.
That's what I meant by the "tech will be mature" by the time I need to replace my phone. I still have a good 2-3 years left on my current iPhone and I only replace my phone every 5 years or so.
That said, Pinephone
(a base linux phone.. can run UBports (Ubuntu Touch), Plasma Mobile, Phosh, SailfishOS, LuneOS, etc.) is a cheaper alternative. I may go that route, when the consumer version is available. (Current Braveheart that just shipped is a Developer phone)
I don't load apps (usually being more spyware) on my phone other than ad blockers and Multi-factor Authentication apps for work. Fortunately, the Librem 5 has the blockers buit-in, and MFA authentication can be done via text instead of an app.This comment was edited on Feb 16, 2020, 11:46.
