It's great. I hope in the future same goes for flagship devices. At the moment it feels like getting a phone like this or Fairphone, you make a compromise in having a sustainable phone but only get mid-range specs.
It seems things are moving slowly in that direction (obviously thanks to regulatory pressures), Pixels allowing re-pairing fingerprint sensor after replacement, iPhone 14 allowing for sane back glass replacements, Samsung finally adding battery pull-tabs in S23.
I just hope these moves don't stop regulation attempts (at least until they go much further), but otherwise they are very promising.
it is definitely ridiculous. I could rather use my 15 years old Android 2 HTC Desire than a rooted phone with current security patches. I know there are workarounds with Magisk Hide etc. but in the past it was such a pain that I just sticked to stock rom.
