    Nope. You can disable some of their apps. You can root your device and delete some of them, but some core Google Apps will need to be on your device to work properly.

    You can sign out of the Maps app, and not allow a lot of things. I think the majority of Android users in the past had some qualms about privacy etc. I wouldn't use the cloud services, location saving, automatic photo uploads, and disabled many unnecessary (for me) apps like Google Play Music, Books, Games... yeh I'm a dreary old soul!).
    Google + was, and still is a no no, although I now have an account open, if that makes sense.

    I have reached a point where I see the benefits of suggestions, eta's, my nearest favourite coffee chain, Google Now and so on.

    I don't believe anyone is spying on me, too boring. Technology needs a certain amount of information to be effective, like a manservant /personal assistant.

    Anyway as the site ambassador above said, Android is Google. Apple and Windows will access cloud and personal information.

    You have to use Android for a period with most non essential things turned off, like I did, until you see the benefits of leaving them on.
