The Smartphone Murena One eliminates Google from your life.

Murena has spent years fighting the good fight, attempting to educate people about their online privacy. The company intends to assist individuals in gaining greater control over their digital profiles, particularly on smartphones. Murena has accomplished this thus far by offering its services in the form of /e/OS, a completely Google-free operating system. The company is releasing its first smartphone, the Murena One, alongside /e/OS version 1.

 

If all of this sounds familiar, you are correct. We have previously witnessed companies offering devices devoid of Google’s intrusive services and apps. Murena’s decision to part ways with Google distinguishes this situation from others. Its operating system is designed to safeguard its users while attempting to provide the best of Android. Due to the fact that Murena’s /e/OS operating system lacks so many of Google’s native services and applications, Murena must develop its own messaging app, web browser, maps, and more.

Murena is voluntarily abandoning Google.

The Murena One is a fairly mid-range product, but its price reflects this. It is powered by a Mediatek Helio P60 SoC and 4GB RAM, and its 6.53-inch IPS LCD display with a resolution of 1080 x 2242 is fairly standard. It also has 128GB of expandable internal storage via microSD and a quad camera array on the back. The first three sensors include a 48MP main sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide sensor, and a 5MP sensor.

The sensor for the front-facing camera will be 25MP. The phone will utilise a 4500mAh battery and come with a two-year warranty. As stated previously, while this isn’t the most impressive set of handset specifications we’ve seen, the phone’s /e/OS preinstallation is the real selling point. In addition to its own digital assistant and cloud service, the smartphone has an embedded app store.

Even though it has its own walled garden, it allows users to dip their toes into the Google pond. There is nothing preventing you from sideloading an alternative app store, such as Aurora Store, for those who absolutely require certain applications.

 

App Lounge provides users with access to the Google Play Store’s most popular Android applications. Companies will have access to your digital profile if you download and install these apps, but if they are required, that is obviously more important. For some, this will be an unfortunate necessity.

Version 1 of /e/OS is now available on a wider variety of devices, so if you’re not fully convinced, you can give the operating system a try. This week, the OS was given the go-ahead and made available to a wider range of devices. You can visit our specialised forum by clicking on the source link provided below. The Murena One is now available for €349; however, it is currently on backorder.
