But then comes Google

Google has been crapping all over Android recently. Android 11 is such a dumpster fire that I have fond memories of my older phone, which I used to think was bad because of Android 10. I seriously don't want to update anything until Android is forked away from Google.

November 2021 marked the moment when all new Android 11+ apps in Play Store using the microSd card must take a 10x to 10000x performance penalty. A really fast 1TB card is reduced to a few IOPS by Google's SAF. No Snapdragon upgrade is going to fix that. A super fast chip trapped by tiny onboard storage isn't a compelling upgrade either.
