Android vendors are almost as bad as Windows when it comes to combining multiple applications with their devices. It's almost a meme at this point. But at least on Windows you can uninstall all bloatware. Most of the bloatware on Android devices I've used over the years can not be removed because they are labeled as system apps.[…]
I never get emails about email, calendar events, social media, etc. I suppose this is because battery-saving measures kill the background processes. So apps can not perform background tasks, such as checking for new emails.[…]
iPhone SE is actually a phone-size device. It is cheap and is still supported by Apple. It seemed like a no-brainer to try it.
