    Hah, same. I mean, the Note 9 is a great handset, don't get me wrong, but I'd love to run LineageOS on this thing.

    Looking at XDA, there do seem to be LineageOS builds, at least for the Exynos version. Apparently messing with the recovery breaks knox, though I have no idea what that is.

    Probably some Samsung OEM app. Sadly though, they made they made the decision to sell the Snapdragon version for all US handsets. I can only assume someone in the state surveillance apparatus cut them a hefty check. >>'

    Isn't that because Quallcom has some patent on CDMA modems in the US? Or something like that anyway. And yeah, that model unforunately is quite lacking in the custom development area :/ At least it's not as fragmented as my LG V20 ^_^'

    It's one of Samsung's security things which is also enables the use of certain features like Samsung Pay and Secure Folder.

    If it's proprietary, then it ain't secure~

    One thing I'm rather disappointed with lately is the lack of tablets with the magical combo of good specs, a cheap price, and an unlockable recovery [ which lets you install ROMs ]. I was actually hoping to allot some cash on getting a Galaxy Tab A for browsing Lewd while on-hours, and all of my research - even the r/android posts - kept veering me towards an iPad. Yech. >_<"

    That said~, I actually already have a tablet, if a rather terrible one. After a day of searching, I found the old Dell Venue 10 5050 I got from my charity job at the computer workshop. Dell, in typical Dell fashion, summarily terminated service of them years in advance of when they'd promised, so I suppose the firm that'd donated them figured it was easier to wash their hands of the devices and start from scratch. >.>'

    It's a rather sleek looking device, for a cheap tablet. Its letdown is its paltry internal storage, which I'd check, but then its battery is so weak now, that it takes ages to charge and dies within the span of a day if you're not connected to mains. For what's suppose to be, like, equivalent to the "PADD"s from Star Trek, that's pretty terrible IMO.

    Still~, at least it gets the basics right. Most apps still work, despite it running an older version of Android, and Firefox was just as snappy as it was on my Note 9. I currently have some plans to dust off my old e-reader, but this thing might still be useful after all. ^_^

    I got a Tab S5e for my at work anime time. The specs are just alright, no flagship processor or anything, but I did get the model with 6GB of RAM. The AMOLED screen is absolutely stunning for videos too! Looks like you can root them and there are official builds of Lineage for it. I just hate that it doesn't have a headphone jack. I had to buy an Apple dongle dac for a device whose entire purpose is media consumption! It also chokes in H265 videos, but so does my Note 9.

    If you want to talk ereaders, I can go all day. I frickin love my Kindles for books and manga. I got lucky and only paid $80 for the Oasis. Annoying locked down software and format conversions aside, it's literally perfect for reading. I won't even care if I could just drag and drop epubs and cbz files.
