I long for an affordable, secure and non-shitty smartphone without the surveillance bits and with an actual app eco system. Yes, that's a lot to ask.
Citation needed. I haven't customized the shit out of my new Nexus 5, but I have experienced the odd freeze-up, requiring a restart. I don't recall ever seeing that on my old iOS device, and quite frankly, the ability to make your UI look like even more like shit is not something I'd choose another time. And while Apple's garden may be walled, Google's is under constant surveillance, recorded for later use.
Everyone says that Android is the bee's knees. I just don't see it.
Great thing, but pricey.
Well, least corrupted if you look at how corruption is defined in the laws of the land. A lot of the corruption is legalized by law(state sanctioned or state run monopolies, or oligopolies run by politicians) and thus not counted towards the corruption score in international rankings.
That's a lot of conjecture in one post. But then again, conservative shills with their ritual hate of wealth redistribution would write something like that.
Would you care to give some examples from the countries in question? (SE, LU, FI, DK)
