must recognize that two kinds of phone users exist: those who care about Google services, and those who do about unlockable bootloaders.

No wonder the business strategy is failing if a walled garden is replaced with another, less attractive one.

@tuxdevices And on some Xiaomi devices you need a Mi account to even enable developer settings on a device...

@tuxdevices No? You need an account to unlock the bootloader, but there's no need for the developer settings

@tuxdevices they could het some people to buy their phones if they had unlockable bootloaders. One portion would just install google services and the other would install android roms
