    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    I used to have some quite small flip phone, even tho my current phone is wider and taller. its so slim that it feels like nothing in my pocket, old one felt like i had little more in my pocket

    Yes I do have one, necessary for work and all that.

    I don't address it. One would need to be better with software than I am, or be hooked in enough to know where the directions to kill the tracking capabilities of smart phones are.

    You should be able to build a phone like you can build a laptop or desktop, and choose the software you want on it.

    Unlike cellphones of the 90s and early turn-of-the-century, a smart phone is more than the sum of its parts... that is to say, it's all about the software. Before you even look at manufacturers, you need to decide on a mobile operating system.

    Your main choices are Apple iOS and Google Android. There is, of course, also Windows Mobile but the largest share of the market belong to those two mobile OS systems. If you so chose iOS, then you're looking at an iPhone, if you choose Android you have some choices... the main competitors are Samsung, Google Nexus, HTC, Motorola, LG, or Sony.

    I have never heard of Medion but I probably wouldn't consider it. Without mainstream support, then you are going to find very little in terms of accessories and applications.
