    thanks. but like Samsung, I don't trust Google at all. don't want them handling my pics or my docs
    So you run the phone without a Samsung or Google account? You don't use any of the Find My Phone tracking that Samsung and Google provide?

    I have accounts because they're necessary, so I sign in. I don't use either browser, neither voice assistant. I use Galaxy Themes, Galaxy Store, and Google Play, Maps because it's usually the best, but it has issues so I also use another well know app at times. I turn off everything I can and keep privacy settings as tight as possible including, but not limited to, not letting any of the apps phone home data regarding usage, no matter how private they say it is.

    I regularly go thru and disable various "required" permissions in the apps and make the app request it from me again if it is really required. so many things requested in permissions are not really necessary and they never ask again.

    I do use find my phone from both, but almost never have my location on so the point is moot. I don't share more of my data than absolutely necessary.
