Hello,
 
Can anyone recommend/suggest an alternative OS to Android (v 6) for a Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini smartphone, please? My sister recommended Lineage, but it’s not suitable for the phone I have.
 
Someone gave me the smartphone to use as a camera and voice recorder, but now I may want to use it occasionally as a phone (my old skool mobile phone seems to have stopped liking headphones/handsfree kits). I’m a bit uncomfortable about using Android because of the Google thing, but I’m a bit clueless about new technology (as is clear from my previous posts/requests) so while I know what I don’t want I have no idea how to find what I do want.
 
As I said, I use the phone mainly as a camera and voice recorder, but I’d like to be able to use it as a phone occasionally, and I quite like being able to access the internet on it, and I’d like to be able to make typed notes on it too, but other than that, I’m not interested in fancy features or things like step counters or even games. Can anyone help, please?
 
Thanks for reading,
 
Alison
